The fall season brings gorgeous fall leaves and crisp fall weather. Sadly, it also brings a plethora of germs. It seems as though everywhere I look, I see loved ones and coworkers reaching for tissues. I don't know about you, but our home refuses to give in to the cold and flu season! So I did a little research and found a solution that is simple to make and easy to use!
I wanted to share this recipe for DIY Shower Melts because let's be honest, everyone needs them. Just a few simple ingredients for some huge relief!
(makes 6 discs)
2 cups baking soda
1/2 cup water
25-40 drops of essential oil
Add baking soda to a large glass bowl. Add water (starting with 1/4 cup and adding more if needed). Consistency should look like a thick paste. Add in essential oils and mix well. Spoon mixture into silicone molds approximately 3/4 of the way full. Allow to dry overnight or for faster drying, bake for 1 hour in a 250 degree oven. Remove from molds when completely dry.
Place on the shower floor. The heat of the shower and drops of water will dissolve the baking soda and release the essential oils into the air. A 15 minute shower will melt a disk to half the size.
Store in an airtight container until
ready to use!
For Allergy Relief:
15 drops Lavender
10 drops Peppermint
10 drops Lemon
15 drops Thieves
10 drops Raven
8 drops Lemon
The great thing about these shower melt is that you can use any essential oil in them.
For relaxation, try using lavender.
For a morning boost, try adding orange.
