Lavender Shower Steamers
A nice, long, hot shower can cure most bad days. Add in a lavender shower steamer and mmm, that's an experience. Shower steamers are like bath bombs for shower-lovers. Taking a long bath every day might not be a feasible self-care routine, but showering? Most of us already do that daily. Enhance your shower experience by placing one of these steamers on the floor of your shower. Then watch as you are transported to a fizzy, aromatic steam room oasis.
- 1 cup of baking soda
- ½ cup of citric acid
- ⅓ cup of cornstarch
- ⅛ cup of kaolin clay
- ¼ cup of jojoba oil
- 1 spray bottle of water
- ⅛ tsp of menthol crystal powder (optional)
- Mica Powder to add color to your shower steamers (optional)
- 2-3 tbsp dried lavender (for infusion)
- 2-3 tbsp dried lavender (for mixing)
- 1 non-metallic bowl
- 1 set of nitrile gloves
- 1 silicone mold
Pack LEVO Pod with dried lavender.
Fill LEVO reservoir with jojoba oil.
Set LEVO to Infuse for 30 minutes at 175°F.
Note: Be sure to wear nitrile gloves when mixing to protect your skin from the citric acid.
Add baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, kaolin clay, mica powder (for color), dried lavender, and menthol crystal powder (optional) to a non-metallic mixing bowl and mix until combined.
Add infused lavender oil to the mixture. Knead the mixture together. If needed, use your spray bottle to lightly spray the mixture with water if it's a little dry. Make sure to incorporate immediately to avoid a reaction.
Fill a silicone mold with the shower steamer mixture. Press firmly into the mold using your fingers.
Wait 24-48 hours to dry completely. They should feel hard and solid. Once ready, remove each shower steamer from the mold and enjoy!
