Make Your Own Aromatherapy Shower Discs

An aromatherapy shower disc (also called shower soothers) is a great way to enjoy the steamy scents that you love as you shower. Place the disc (or puck) in the corner floor of your shower so the hot water hitting it releases the aroma as it dissolves. This soothing vapor mist is especially nice to breath if you have a cold, flu allergy, or sinus congestion or just a good-morning-wake-me-up. They make a great gift or care package item for someone under the weather! You can customize them with any essential oil of your liking. Favorite respiratory opening essential oils include lavender,  rosemary, peppermint, menthol,tea tree, and eucalyptus. Making your own aromatherapy shower discs take just minutes and are very economical.

Easy to make aromatherapy shower discs.

How to make: In a mixing bowl stir 1 cup baking soda, 1 TBSP cornstarch (optional,helps them to not be crumbly)), and 1/3 cup water. The consistency should be a thick soupy paste. Pour into a silicone muffin tin or use paper liners in a traditional metal muffin tin. Set aside for 12-24 hrs to dry completely. Pop out and place 5 drops of essential oils of your choice onto each disc. Store in an airtight container or zip-lock baggie in a cool dry place.

Place 5 drops of essential oil onto each disc.
