DIY Aromatherapy Shower Fizzies bring your shower experience to a new level.
It is hard to believe it is close to the end of April. School lets out next month, which means time to find something unique to give my grandsons teacher. I usually try to make gifts because they are less likely to get homemade things or duplicates. I made DIY aromatherapy shower fizzies this year for a fun teacher gift. The best thing about the aromatherapy shower fizzies is they are easy to make and can be personalized with a variety of essential oils. They are not only great teacher gifts but also wonderful gift ideas for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. I know many people that enjoy bath bombs, but not everyone takes bath.However most people take showers so this is a fantastic way to turn a daily shower into an aromatherapy spa experience.
Here is what I used:
¾ cup Baking Soda
1/3 cup Citric Acid
Witch Hazel (in a spray bottle)
Soap Mold (if you don’t have one use the half of a plastic Easter egg)
Essential Oil of your choice (I used Now Cheer Up Buttercup blend)
Gloves (I used gloves for dying hair)
Pops Favor Bags for packaging
I use gloves on my hands while I made these to avoid messing up my nail polish, but it isn’t necessary.
In a glass bowl combine the Baking Soda and the Citric Acid.
Mix together, breaking up any clumps. Slowly add the essential oil to the mixture, you can add more essential oil than a bath bomb since it is used for aromatherapy in the shower.
I used 40 drops of Cheer Up Buttercup in my fizzies, which isn’t overpowering. Since I don’t know the teacher very well, I made them mildly fragrant. However, when I make them for myself, I use more oil. You can adjust the oil amount to your liking up to 80 drops in this size batch. Combine the oil in the mixture and mix thoroughly. Slowly spray Witch Hazel into the mixture and mix with hands until the powder sticks together but doesn’t crumble.
The amount of Witch Hazel will vary depending how much oil you use. Be sure and spray it a little at a time so the citric acid doesn’t lose its fizz.Using your hands press the powder into the soap mold making sure that the top is smooth.
Let the fizzies sit in the mold for at least an hour. Remove from mold and let the fizzies dry overnight.
After they dry, package them to your liking. I used Pops Favor Bags for packaging two fizzies. Be sure and include a card with directions.
The shower fizzies should be placed on the floor of the shower for an aromatherapy experience. These are not bath bombs and should not be used in the bathtub due to the amount of essential oil used. Now isn’t that simple? What is your favorite blend of essential oils?
