Tips to Make this Allergy Bath Bomb
Place a shower fizzy away from direct spray but where it will get overspray. When the water connects with the fizzy, the sinus-clearing oils are released. And the moment of relief is headed your way.
To make an allergy relief bath bomb with this recipe, just use a round bath bomb mold. Easy peasy.
- Be sure to use this in the morning before your allergies hit their peak when you head out to work–prevention is the name of the game with allergies!
How Do I Make these Allergy Relief Shower Fizzies?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial. If you’re making a allergy bath bomb ideas playlist on YouTube, here is our allergy relief shower fizzies video tutorial.
- Mold with a flat bottom
- 2 cups Baking soda
- ¾ cup Citric acid
- 15-20 drops Lemon essential oil
- 15-20 drops Lavender essential oil
- 15-20 drops Peppermint essential oil
- 1/4 cup witch hazel (this will depend on the mix and the humidity in your area, so start with a couple of teaspoons)
- Combine baking soda and citric acid until well mixed.
- Add essential oils and stir very well - a whisk works great for mixing the oils into dry ingredients.
- Slowly add witch hazel, a couple of teaspoons at a time, stirring all the while. You want to add until the mixture is just slightly damp and holds shape when squeezed in your hand.
- If you like you can sprinkle a few dried lavender buds like I did, it adds a nice touch, especially if you are gifting, but it’s not necessary.
- Press mixture firmly into mold and allow to dry completely. I tend to leave mine overnight to be sure it is fully set.
- Carefully remove the shower fizzy from the mold and store them in an airtight container.
