If you are like most people around this time of year, your nose might feel congested and a cold or flu could be coming on.
We recently came across the Vicks Vapor shower disks and discovered that these things really work! However, we were a bit concerned about a couple of the ingredients in there and thought how great it would be if we could make our own 100% natural versions.
Well, we discovered that there is a natural alternative to making your own shower disks and here is what you need to do:
- Distilled or mineral water (we recommend distilled)
- Baking soda
- Essential oils: eucalyptus, rosemary, & lavender
- Non-stick muffin tin
- Muffin liners [/green_plus_list]
Step 1 – Add 3 cups of baking soda to a mixing bowl
Step 2 – Very slowly stir in some water so that it creates a thick paste (you do not want it thin).
Step 3 – Add 15 drops of the eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender oil (each). So it should total 45 drops.
Step 4 – Scoop it out and fill each muffin tin about 2/3 of the way.
Step 5 – Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Let it sit for at least 15 hours so they harden (can take up to 24 hours)
Step 6 – When you take a shower put one in there with you and make sure the water is hot enough so that the vapors fill your shower with the wonderful essential oils
