Aromatherapy clay shower gel... sounds soothing, cleansing and moisturising to me!
I’ve been wanting to make this for ages... another soggy weekend means that I have my chance to get creating. Aromatherapy clay shower gel... sounds soothing, cleansing and moisturising to me! I want a lovely fragrance from the oils, all the therapeutic properties from the ingredients and fresh, happy skin please!
So... first things, first! Organise my equipment:
- Empty bottles for my creations
- Bath oils/shower gel base/clay powders
I gather together the ingredients I want to create my clay shower gels... I pick them for scent, skin nourishment and colour. I am going to make 3 combinations.
Bath oils: Each has their own signature aromatherapy blend. Vegan friendly.
Amphora Aromatics, Relaxing- Calming, balancing and stress releasing.
Made with pure essential oils including Lavender, Chamomile Roman and Melissa
Amphora Aromatics, PMT- Soothing, calming and stress releasing.
Made with pure essential oils including Lavender, Clary Sage and Neroli Absolute
Amphora Aromatics, Invigorating- Energising and refreshing.

Shower Gel Base: The clear gel base is the perfect plain base to mix ingredients into.
Amphora Aromatics, Shower Gel Base: Paraben free and natural SLS free product. Vegan friendly.
Clays: The clays are very efficient at drawing dirt, oils, and toxins from the skin. Vegan friendly.
Amphora Aromatics, Pink Clay- Pink Kaolin, suitable for dry/sensitive skin.
Amphora Aromatics, White Clay- Kaolin, suitable for sensitive skin.
Amphora Aromatics, Green Clay- Illite, suitable for normal/oily skin.
- Set out my equipment
- Sort out my bath oil/clay combinations
- Make a cone out of the paper, and hold the shape with a piece of tape
- Take Bottle 1 – fill ¾ with shower gel base
- Put my cone in the top of the bottle and pour in x2 heaped tablespoons of clay
- Add into the mix as much bath oil as I like
- Use the stirrer to mix the product together
- Put the lid on and shake it really, really well - repeat the process for Bottle 2 and 3
It doesn’t have to be perfect - you can put in more or less of all the ingredients as you like!
I can’t wait to try mine out, enjoy creating yours!
