Tips to Make Snowflake Shower Bombs

  • Shower fizzies are different than bath bombs in that they don’t need to be directly submerged in water. Place a snowflake shower fizzy or two on the shower floor away from your feet (or on an inside shower ledge). The invigorating aroma will fill your shower!
  • To store these awesome snowflake shower bombs, keep them in an airtight container until you’re ready to use them. You can also shrink-wrap them (which is great for gifting). To do this just grab some cello bags (I use at least 4×6 inch), a hairdryer or heat gun, and heat the bomb while wrapped in the plastic. Press down to make sure it’s a tight seal all around. Simple?! Yup.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Active Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $3

Materials

  • 1 1/2 cups cornstarch, divided 
  • 20-30 drops peppermint essential oil, divided 
  • 2 tablespoons witch hazel, divided
  • 4-6 tablespoons water, divided 
  • blue soap colorant (optional)

Tools

Instructions

  1. Pour half of the cornstarch (3/4 cup) into a metal or glass mixing bowl.  Add 20 drops of peppermint essential oil and 2 Tablespoons of water and stir.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of witch hazel.  I like to use mine in a small spritzer bottle. It's not required- I just think it gets distributed better that way). Stir again.
  3. Pick some of the mixture up in your hand and squeeze it.  If it holds its shape, it is ready to transfer to the mold.  If not, add an additional tablespoon of water and stir.
  4. Once your mixture passes the "squeeze test," transfer to the snowflake molds, pressing down firmly to pack the mixture into each mold.
  5. To make blue snowflake shower steamers, add 4-5 drops of blue soap colorant (more if you want a darker blue color) to a bowl with 2 tablespoons of water.  Add the colored water to the remaining cornstarch and mix. Add 20 drops of peppermint essential oil and stir well. 
  6. Add 1 tablespoon of witch hazel.  Test the mixture to see if it clumps in your hand after squeezing it.  If so, transfer the mix to the silicone molds.  If not, add an additional tablespoon of water and stir.  Repeat the "squeeze test."  If it stays together after squeezing the mixture, you are ready for the snowflake molds. If not, add an additional tablespoon of water. 
  7. Firmly pack the mixture into each mold and freeze for one hour.
  8. Gently pop out each snowflake shower steamer from its silicone mold and allow to air dry overnight. Store in an airtight container. 
  9. HOW TO USE: Place 1-2 snowflake steamers in the corner of your shower, away from the main stream of water.   The steam from the shower will help activate the steamer and release the uplifting and energizing aroma of peppermint!
