These menthol packed shower treats open up a whole new customer base for the handmade cosmetic maker. There are a lot of people who only use showers because they either don’t have bathtubs, have water shortages, or aren’t able to use a bathtub safely. While they love the idea of fragrant bath treats and really want to have that spa experience, bath bombs just aren’t something they can utilize. The answer, of course, is to make shower steamers.
What is a Shower Steamer? A Shower Steamer is a menthol laden treat similar to a bath bomb in that it is made with a combination of citric acid and baking soda. When it comes into contact with water it will begin to fizz. As it fizzes out, the combination of steam and menthol vapor helps carry the aroma of essential oils to create a fragrant, opening experience. These are generally paired with peppermint, eucalyptus, tea tree, and other powerful essential oils.
What is a Shower Soother? A Shower Soother is just an alternative of the Shower Steamer. Many customers ask for more “flavors” of shower steamers, but the menthol tends to be so overpowering it’s the only thing you can smell. Shower Soothers create that wonderful pampered, spa experience and open the door for customers to enjoy other fragrances.
Why these recipes? There are a lot of free recipes online for shower steamers, but this one is different. For starters it doesn’t use rubbing alcohol, which–who would have thought it in 2019–has become a hot commodity. This recipe also LASTS. I mean it really lasts a long time. Paired with an organza bag, customers can hang their Shower Steamer/Soother on the faucet or knobs of their tub and use them for multiple showers. Which means customers LOVE these, and really feel the added value of the product! We know you’ll love them too because they are so easy to make!

- Safety (when working with menthol and essential oils)
- Formulation (how to formulate for category 9 versus 11 cosmetics)
- Cosmetic Claims
This is the most extensive shower steamer/soother eBook out there! You’ll have the knowledge to safely formulate and make these products. Your customers are sure to love these shower treats!
