Essential Oil Shower Bombs
We love using essential oils in our home! Whether it’s aromatically through a diffuser or diffuser necklace, internally with a drop in our tea, or topically as part of lotion.
So, it seemed only natural to take those essential oils and turn them into DIY shower bombs!
This shower bomb craft uses some of our favorites for when we’re feeling a tad bit stuffy. They’re perfect for a winter craft!
You can use just about any essential oil you’d like when you make your homemade bath bombs, but use it in moderation and only use high-quality essential oils.
The ones you find at grocery and discount stores are not the ones you need!

How to Use Your Homemade Shower Bombs
You’ve made a batch of homemade shower bombs, but now what? How do you actually use them?
No worries! It’s simple to use them whenever you take a shower.
- First, start the shower and put the water at a comfortably warm temperature.
- Then, remove a shower bomb from the airtight container and place it over the drain.
- Hop in after and shower as normal!
- The warm water will help the shower bomb dissolve and release the beneficial essential oils.
We recommend always placing the shower bombs over the drain grate as they can make the shower pan slippery.
Always use caution when getting in and out of the shower when you are using a shower bomb.
