Create Your Own Home-Spa Getaway with Homemade Shower Bombs


  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 cup citric acid (available at health food stores or online)
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 30+ drops of your favorite aromatic essential oil (see our suggestions below)


  1. Mix together the baking soda and citric acid in a medium-size bowl.
  2. In a separate small bowl or bottle, mix together water and essential oil and slowly add the oil-water mixture a few drops at a time into your dry ingredients, stirring well after each addition (a stand mixer works well for this).
  3. When ingredients are thoroughly mixed, tightly pack into 2-inch balls using your hands, a stainless steel cake pop mold, or a cookie scoop.
  4. Set on a plate to dry. If necessary, pack the balls again more tightly. Allow to dry for 12+ hours before using.
  5. To use, simply place a bomb near your feet under warm running water and enjoy the aromatic experience!
