Recipe type: Shower Steamers
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6 shower steamers
Start your morning off right with this recipe. It will fill your shower with a fresh mix of lavender and tea tree essential oil.
  • 6 Cavity Silicone Square Mold
  • 20 oz. Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)
  • 10 oz. Citric Acid
  • 18 mL Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • 18 mL Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil
  • Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle
  • Droppers
  1. In a large bowl, combine 20 ounces of baking soda and 10 ounces of citric acid. To get rid of clumps in the mixture, you can push the powders through a sifter or break them up with your fingers. Citric acid has a tendency to take off nail polish, so wear gloves to protect your manicure. Thoroughly stir everything together.
  2. Add 18 mL of tea tree essential oil and 18 of mL Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil. Use your hands to fully mix into the powder mixture.
  3. Test the consistency of the mixture. The perfect consistency is similar to wet sand and holds its shape when squeezed. If it’s too dry, use one hand to spritz the mixture with witch hazel and one to mix. Continue spritzing until the mixture holds its shape.
  4. Firmly press the mixture into each cavity of the Silicone Square Mold. Allow the steamers to dry for several hours or up to overnight. Remove from the molds.
