Candy Cane Christmas Shower Fizzies Recipe

If you’re like most adults, you take more showers than you do baths. Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we’ve made many bath bomb recipes and shared them. But when it really comes down it – I find myself using shower steamers more these days.

One of the best parts of making shower steamers is the benefit it gives to your senses and mood. You don’t soak in them and they don’t require the citric acid (that’s what gives bath bomb recipes their fizziness).

Let’s make a candy cane shower fizzies recipe together. It’s the perfect holiday gift idea!

Active Time 25 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Difficulty Easy


  • 1 1/2 cups baking soda
  • 1/3 cup distilled water (might need up to 1/2 cup)
  • 10-15 drops peppermint essential oil
  • witch hazel in a spray bottle
  • Candy cane icing decorations (we got ours here on Amazon)


  • silcone mold
  • bowl
  • whisk


  1. Add the baking soda to a large glass or metal bowl and begin my mixing 1/4 cup water into it until the mixture resembles damp sand.
  2. Stir in the peppermint oil and mix again.
  3. Transfer the mix to the molds and press down. Spray the top with a spritz of witch hazel and insert a candy cane decoration into each cavity. Note: don’t press too firmly or the decoration might break.
  4. Leave the candy cane shower steamers in the mold overnight to dry. Remove them and let them dry on the counter again for about 24 hours to harden and dry fully. photo collage how to make Christmas shower fizzies recipe with candy canes

How to Use and Store These Christmas Shower Fizzies

Shower bombs are different than bath bombs in that they don’t need to be directly submerged in water. Place a steamer or two on the shower floor away from your feet (or on an inside shower ledge). The invigorating aroma will fill your shower and infuse your day with focus.

To store these fun candy cane shower steamers, keep them in an airtight container until ready to be used. You can also shrink wrap them (great for gifting).

To do this: get cello bags (I use at least 4×6 inch), a hair dryer or heat gun, and heat the bomb in the plastic. Press down to make sure it’s a tight seal all around.
