Lots of people love using those shower vapors when they feel run down or with the flu – and although I’m not sure if they still make them, I don’t think we have ever bought them because they are so stinkin’ easy to make at home.
- 2 C. Baking Soda
- 1/2 C. Water (more or less because you want a paste you can put into molds)
- 1 Tbsp Corn Starch
- Eucalyptus Essential Oil (see what we use)
- Lavender Essential Oil (see what we use)
Combine the Water with Corn Starch and Baking Soda, and mix until a thick paste forms. Don’t stir in oils .. yet! Pour into molds – I used the same Heart Molds that we make our Lotion Bars with because they are relatively easy to use.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes – let them cool for a while (a few hours at least), then pop out of the mold. Use 5 drops of Lavender and Eucalyptus on each and allow the oil to soak in, then store in a covered mason jar until ready to use.
When using, drop into the bottom of the shower when needed – hot showers work best.
It’s extremely important that we use quality Essential Oils – and we really love Young Living (we’ve been using them for three years!) Think we are crazy?
You are right, we are crazy – because we have a different mentality when it comes to taking care of our family. We LOVE everything about our oils and use for everything from personal health to wellness.
