These were fun to make! I love any recipe where I can use dried flowers or herbs. For some reason, they make me feel more special when in use.
This recipe consists of rose essential oil. It is known to help depression through its aromatherapy properties. Rose helps boost self-esteem and confidence which is great for first thing in the morning.
Start your day off right when taking your morning shower by breathing in the floral scent. Perfect.
I did say they were fun to make, but I failed to mention how many batches I had to throw out due to wrong amount of ingredients.
They either had too much water or too less water.
I had to calm myself because it hurts me to throw away and waste ingredients. Oh well. Live and learn.
My third trial was definitely a success. You should have seen me, I was SO happy popping those bugers out of the mold. They didn’t fall apart, crumble, or dissipate.
“Doing the happy dance”
You can use any type of dried flowers. Lavender buds and calendula flowers are amongst the popular ones. Even herbs. Throw some mint or rosemary into your recipe and you have yourself a nice herbal shower.
If you enjoy taking baths, take a look at my Orange & Green Tea Bath Salt Soak recipe for an herbal blend!

Now on to the DIY Rose Shower Steamers Recipe.
- 1 cup Baking Soda
- 1/2 cup Citric Acid
- 10 spritz of Water
- 3 Tbsp Dried Rose Petals
- 30-40 drops Rose Absolute Essential Oil
- Silicone Mold
Mix the baking soda and citric acid.
Add the dried rose petals and mix.
Mix in 30-40 drops Rose essential oil.
Using one spritz at a time, spray water into the mixture. Mix as you go. You’ll know there is enough water when a crumbly texture forms, but is still sticking together.
Put into your silicone molds, making sure to pat down every nook and cranny.
Let dry overnight. Slowly pop out your DIY Rose Shower Steamers from the mold.
Don’t they look beautiful? Almost too pretty to use.
Place the DIY Rose Shower Steamer either on any ledge of your shower or on the floor. If you place it on a ledge that doesn’t get wet, sprinkle some water on the steamer to get it started.
Mmmm smell the rose aromatherapy as you do your shower duties. Let the smell uplift and elevate your thinking.
This recipe filled one of my silicone molds as you see in the pictures.
