A LUSH experience DIY with zero chemicals and fragrance:>

What’s great about shower fizzies is that they give a a burst of aromatherapy and help wake you up (if you use oils like eucalyptus, citrus or peppermint) or relax you (if you use a lavender oil for example).  I try making a batch of peppermint shower fizzes to try simply place it on the floor of your shower and as the water hits it, the shower will be filled with a scented cloud of essential oil goodness. ANd use ur foot step on this DIY DISC and scrub legs, power ok:> DEtox Body.

But commercial one full of colors and chemical; So I DIY;
I use all 4 aromatherapy , the best Baking Soda,
 the muffin liners were only a few cents each,



  • 1 box baking soda
  • Water
  • Essential oils: Rosemary, Eucalyptus, and Lavender (optional: Bergamot or another scent of your choice) ( 8 drops each)
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Muffin pan with cupcake liners

Depends how much u want to make. But is so cheap. I put one box and add water to make to a very very thick paste. Cannot be watery. Must be very thick paste. Guideline is 1 cup to less than 1/4 cup water. U measure urself ok:>
For those who do not have OVEN. Like me. I Mix already put in small cake paper:> Than leave it for 16 hours. And now u hit to let the disc come out.


Steps: Add water to baking soda until thick paste (NOT WET). Add the oil. Than put in those muffin mold or make to a ball.

Step B: Use Mold or the muffin to make ur desire shape

Leave all to dry for 15 hours. I put under morning SUN awhile also can.

Can keep in a jar; When needed take one out and put in water for shower or go overseas, take this disc and put in bath tub. 

 The original idea for these shower disks came from the company “Lush,” a Canada-based bath products company that prides themselves on using all-natural and environmentally friendly product

Added 4/7/12 - for anyone who is having issues with these being "crumbly", try using 1 cup of baking soda and 1/3 cup of water (plus maybe a few tbslp more) and baking for 20 minutes at 350.  THEN add a few drops of each essential oils to the cooled "puck".  That was a suggestion from a commenter and I tried it this morning with great success!  I'm a quick shower taker (less than 5 min), and my "disk" was only about 1/3 gone at the end of the shower.
