Whenever I’m feeling under the weather, taking a shower is the last thing on my mind. I just want to lay in bed all day and watch cheesy reality shows. But did you know that taking a shower actually helps you feel better? I found an amazing shower disk recipe, and I’d love to share it with you. This really helps me nurse myself back to health!
In this recipe, I used my favorite essential oils and a current favorite blend. Ravensara and Lemon Essential Oils are amazing at making my stuffy nose feel less congested. They smell amazing together, but when you mix them with Defender Essential Oil Blend, oh you will be in love! This synergy blend is a mix of clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, rosemary, and lemon. It’s a winner at making me feel healthier!
All you need:
First, mix the baking soda and cornstarch. You can add ⅓ cup of Citric Acid to make the shower melts fizz like a bath bomb!
Next, add the fractionated coconut oil and menthol crystals. Stir them together until the crystals dissolve.
Remove from heat and add your essential oils.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix until the consistency is like wet sand. If it doesn’t pack easily, add more fractionated coconut oil.
Place a pinch of unmelted Menthol Crystals into a tablespoon scoop. Then pour the shower melt into it and firmly tap to pack them in.
Gently tip the tablespoon down to release the disk and let dry overnight with a towel covering them.
To use, simply drop one shower melt near the drain of your shower.
To preserve, wrap in plastic wrap.
The refreshing scent makes every shower better - especially when you’re down with a cold! It wakes you up and makes you healthier. This is my way of cheating on cleaning the shower stall. Make yourself these melts and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
