Ingredients & Supplies:

  • 1 cup (149 g) cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 ml) water + more as needed
  • Yellow and red food coloring (optional)
  • 6 drops lemon essential oil
  • 6 drops orange essential oil
  • 4 drops bergamot essential oil
  • 16 oz. PET Jar


  1. Place cornstarch in a mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine 2 Tbsp. of water, a few drops of food coloring, and essential oils.
    Stir water mixture into the cornstarch, and continue adding water drop by drop until a thick crumb-like paste starts to form.
  3. Transfer to an ice cube tray or silicone mold, and freeze until set (about an hour).
  4. To use, place a shower melt on the floor of your shower, and turn the hot water on. Enjoy the citrus aroma as the water and steam hit the shower melt!
  5. Store in a airtight container like this PET Jar. Note: If you added too much water and they start to melt, you will want to keep them frozen until you use them. Otherwise, you can store them at room temperature.


  1. Excellent post! We are linking to this particularly great content
    on our website. Keep up the good writing.

  2. I needed to add 8 Tbls+ 1 tsp water for the right consistency.

  3. I made this recipe but as soon as I took the molds out of the freezer, they started to melt at room temperature!!! What did I do wrong????
