Shower Melts...

Updated: Dec 3, 2018

This time of year everyone is hacking up a lung. Max was home from school for two days and I refuse to get sick. So far, so good.

I have been drinking my elderberry syrup with warm water and apple cider vinegar which seems to help.

But these shower melts are a household favorite.

They are a great way to add essential oils to a steam shower. I pick scents that will open up my nose and help my lungs breathe deep.

My favorites are:

• Theives- for cold prevention

• RC- for a cough

• Eucalyptus- for a spa feel at home

Max loves:

• Lavender

• Peace & Calming- mostly because he can drop the oils onto the melts himself.

Shower Melts

• 1 box baking soda

• 3/4 cup washing soda

Blend together into a medium sized bowl and distribute into silicone molds. Add water directly into one mold at a time. Start with a teaspoon of water and add more if needed. Stir immediately and work fast because this stuff hardens quickly. Repeat with remaining molds.

This recipe should make about 2 1/2 dozen depending on your fill. Let wet molds set for 10-15 minutes. If any excess water remains on top of mold, pour out. Pop hardened melt onto cooling rack to dry for a few hours. I let them sit overnight.

Keep in a container in the bathroom. Add 10 drops of your favorite oil directly onto a melt at the time of shower. Place melt on floor of shower where the hot water can melt it away along with your stress. Breathe deeply.

Please use a reputable company for purchasing essential oils. I use young living oil because I am a distributor. DoTERRA and Rocky Mountain are fine too. If you have any questions about oils and their quality, feel free to ask.
