A Twist on Shower Melts
It’s cold and flu season and I have shower melts on the brain.
Shower melts are a wonderful way to open the airways with steam and essential oils when you are congested and don’t have time for a warm soak in a tub.
But they are also great for other uses too! Ever feel like you can’t wake up in the morning and need a little energy boost?
How about a warm soothing shower to relax you before a much needed night sleep?
What about a luxurious shower before a special date night to make you feel pretty?
Or even a special part of a self care routine?
Today I’m here to give you all those options! Your showers will never be the same!
1 cup baking soda
½ cup epsom salts
Water in a spray bottle
Mix baking soda, epsom salts and essential oils together in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Add your choice of oils, coloring and even flowers. Then spray water into the mixture a little at a time until it is the consistency of wet sand.
Pack the mixture into molds and let dry overnight.
Eucalyptus - Lavender, Peppermint & Menthol
I love to add a couple of drops of green and blue food coloring to these to make them a pretty blue/green color
Wild Orange, Peppermint & Rosemary
Add some yellow and red food coloring to make these orange
Serenity & Cedarwood
Add some blue and red food coloring to make these purple. Or add a little bit of dried lavender buds to the uncolored mixture (or both!)
Love is in the Air
Sandalwood, Citrus Bliss, Ylang-Ylang
Add some dried rose petals to make it pretty
Frankincense & Wild Orange
Add some dried flower petals to this mixture
So I hope you love these ideas to kick your showers up a notch!
