Today's Therapy Thursday is a cute DIY Shower Decongestant Melt by Simple Living Creative Learning- for those without baths there is still a way to use healing ingredients in the shower!
Ingredients 1 cup baking soda 1/4-1/3 cup water 5 drops Eucalytpus Essential Oil 5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil 2 drops Rosemary Essential Oil 2 drops Lavender Essential Oil silicon mold glass bowl and metal spoon for mixing
Method: Place the baking soda in a small glass bowl. Very slowly add the water, mixing as you go until the mixture is wet enough to stick together, forming a very thick paste. Add the essential oils and mix well to incorporate them through the whole mixture. Place the mixture in your mold, pressing it down and flattening the top. Allow to air dry overnight or longer, until the melts are hard. Remove from mold and store in an airtight container.
To use these melts, drop one at the bottom of the shower where it will get slightly wet, but not soaked. The slower the water hits it the longer it will last and the better it will work.
Other essential oil blends you could use are: Clear Sinuses – Eucalyptus and Peppermint Relaxation – Lavender and Bergamot Clear your Mind – Lemon and Rosemary Calming – Geranium, Lavender and Rose Stress Relief – Orange, Clove, Cedarwood and Lemon
