The Best DIY Recipe For Natural Shower Steamers

Shower steamers are such a big thing in beauty right now. They are also very helpful for a number of health issues. You can now make your own natural version with several simple ingredients.


This recipe for shower steamers requires you to get 3-5 tablespoons water, 1 cup citric acid, 2 cups baking soda, and 1 cup cornstarch. You should also add essential oils, depending on what you need the steamers for. If you only need a relaxing shower to opt for 80 drops of lavender oil and 40 drops geranium essential oil. People struggling with a cold should add 80 drops eucalyptus oil and 40 drops peppermint essential oil. Don’t forget to get soap molds.


Use a large bowl and fill it with the citric acid, baking soda, and cornstarch. Mix the ingredients well. Start adding water, but only one tablespoon at a time. Take your time, and do everything very slowly. Test it with your hand, and when it feels like wet sand, that is when you should stop adding water. This is when you should also include the essential oils in the mix. Once you’re done add the shower steamers in the mold. Leave it for at least 12 hours before using.
