Whip up a quick batch of these candy cane Christmas shower fizzies and create an invigorating, wow-worthy Christmas spa gift.
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!

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.
