Essentially Tamara

TAMARA shower bursts are the ideal wedding favour. By gifting your guest a shower burst, you are gifting them with a luxurious experience to enjoy after your wedding day in their shower. An experience that will allow them time to relax and luxuriate in the memories of your beautiful big day while enjoying a spa experience in their own shower courtesy of you!

We are able to coordinate the shower bursts to match your wedding colour scheme and with the favours placed beautifully on the tables, the air will be filled with beautiful fragrances to enchant your guests.

We have a large library of fragrances to choose from and we would be very happy to help you with the choices.

Essentially Tamara is proudly 100% New Zealand-owned and operated. We specialise in making shower bursts that are both elegant and feminine with a twist of sophistication.

We use only premium ingredients. Every product is individually handcrafted and packaged by hand with care and attention to every detail.

Our mission is to offer unique, luxurious and premium products that bring relaxation into the shower environment.

All our products are vegan-friendly and completely cruelty-free. They do not contain any animal-derived products.


To use a shower bomb or burst, it is simply unwrapped and placed on the floor of the shower and as the guest showers, the hot water and steam activate the burst which releases restorative and soothing menthol fragrance into the steamy air as it slowly dissolves and washes down the drain.

The burst is made of all-natural ingredients and is completely safe to use on any shower surface. It is non-slippery and composed mostly of bicarbonate of soda and citric acid which are also used as very natural cleaning agents (and as an added bonus, will aid in keeping the shower drains in tiptop condition).
