Simple Eucalyptus Shower Melts that will Help Conquer Cold Season

They crumble without much effort. Bummer. So, I just put them in a jar, shook it up, and now it will be used as a bath salt. Wonder if adding beeswax might help. Might try another batch just to see if that makes a difference. They do smell amazing ! 

I did purchase both the silicone mold and colorant via your links. Just an FYI, the silicone molds via your link are approximately muffin sized. The shower melts in your pictures appear to be approximately ice-cubed sized.

Why do you always seem to bring some kind of cold or respiratory virus along with you? We’ve been passing a cough and cold bug around the family for the past few weeks, and I wanted a way to relieve a bit of our stuffiness. Vicks usually helps at night and hot showers usually help during the day, but what if I could combine those two things into one? I made these eucalyptus and peppermint shower melts to try to do just that 

The melts are made from essential oils (don’t worry, I am not trying to sell you any) and baking soda. The baking soda is just a vehicle to get the oils into the shower’s steam. PS Do you see the cute little face in my bowl of baking soda? 

Get some relief during cold & flu season with these easy-to-make eucalyptus shower melts – they’re like bath bombs for the shower! 

What’s great is that these really aren’t too tough to make! Once you have the supplies, you can make a bunch of different batches and give shower melts out as gifts! 

Ingredients-
  • Soap colorant (optional) 
  • Silicone mold 
  • 1 cup baking soda 
  • 2-5 tablespoons water 
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil 
  • 10 drops eucalyptus essential oil 
  • 10 drops peppermint essential oil 
Instruction Preparation-
  1. First Add baking soda to a glass or metal bowl. Slowly mix water with baking soda one tablespoon at a time until you reach a thick paste consistency. You may not need 5 full tablespoons. I ended up using about 4 to get the consistency I was looking for.Mix well. The mixture will look like a crumbly powder. You may need to adjust the amount of essential oil based on personal preference. 
  2. Then dd in your essential oil and soap colorant if using and mix well. The amount of each is up to your personal preference. I used 10 drops of each scent, but if you want a stronger aroma, you could easily do 15-20 drops. You can also add a drop to the finished shower melt right before you get in the shower if they don’t turn out to be strong enough.Add in the two tablespoons of water. Continue to mix until the colors disperse and clumps begin to form. Please note that this amount of water will NOT be enough to make the paste you are after. It is however a starting point so you can carefully ration water in and form your paste. 
  3. This is what the mixture looks like after the soap coloring is added. It’s a little like wet sand. 
  4. Continue adding a few drops of water at a time, mixing well as you do. Once you have a thick paste, transfer the mixture to your mini ice cube tray. Smooth the mixture out flat. 
  5. Press your mixture firmly into your mold. It may get watery at the top once it settles. Just take a paper towel and blot the water away. Freeze the contents for 1 hour or until the mixture is set to dry. Store them in a dry, airtight container for 1-2 months. 
  6. Enjoy your Simple Eucalyptus Shower Melts that will Help Conquer Cold Season still don’t look forward to cold season, at least I’m armed with these awesome eucalyptus shower melts
