If you are looking to support your respiratory system this winter, you can make these homemade shower soothers at home. These are simple to make and are very similar to Vick’s Vapor shower soothers without the price. Using essential oils you will find your respiratory system supported as well as feeling comforted and relaxed after using these in the shower.
Here is what you will need:
- 2 cups baking soda
- ½ cup water (more or less – your goal is to mix until you make a paste)
- 1 tablespoon of corn starch
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
In a small bowl mix baking soda and slowly mix in water until it becomes just a tad more liquid than a paste. Add cornstarch. Pour into your desired molds. I prefer silicone molds because it is easier to remove them without breaking them.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, allow to cool and remove from pan.
Add 5 drops of Lavender, Peppermint and Eucalyptus onto each disk and allow the oils to soak in. Store in mason jars or a plastic container.
To use simply drop one into the bottom of your shower when needed and allow the vapors to steam out. These help with colds, sinus infections and allergies.
