How to make fizzy Bath, Toilet & Shower Bombs

We explore the simple yet satisfying process of crafting these effervescent bombs, perfect for elevating your bath time experience and freshening up your toilet and shower. Get ready to unleash a burst of fragrance and relaxation—let's fizz it up!

How to make them


- 1 cup Bicarb  Soda

- 1/2 cup Citric Acid

- 20-25 drops of essential oil of your choice

- Water 


- Bowl

- Spoon

- Measuring Cups

- Ice cube tray or bath bomb moulds


- Roughly 12-18 in a standard ice cube tray


1. In a bowl, mix together the baking soda and citric acid.

2. Add the essential oil to the mixture and stir well. You can use any essential oil that you like, but some good options are lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, and citrus

3. Add a little bit of water into the mixture at a time,  or even better spritz it on with a water bottle if possible. You want the mixture to be slightly damp, but not too wet.

4. Scoop the mixture into a silicone mould or ice cube tray, packing it in tightly. Let the mixture sit in the mould for several hours or overnight to dry and harden.

5. Once the fragrance bombs have hardened, pop them out of the mould and store them in an airtight  container until you're ready to use them.

A few ways to use the fragrance bombs

In the Loo: When you need to cover some unpleasant bathroom odours, simply drop a fragrance bomb into the loo after a flush and it will fizz up and release a more pleasant fragrance

In the bath: Drop one into a warm bath and enjoy!

In the shower: Pop one in the corner of the shower and it will dissolve releasing your chosen fragrance, we love Eucalyptus Oil for this

In the home: Simply place one or two in a small dish or bowl and leave them in a room. As the bombs start to dissolve, they'll release a lovely fragrance into the air. You can also use them in your drawers or closets to keep your clothes smelling fresh.
