Back when I was in college I fell in love with the Vick’s menthol shower disks. I loved how they cleared my sinuses and helped wake me up while I took a shower. Since then I’ve tried making the disks myself and I ended up with a crumbly, not very potent mess. I was disappointed. I had used quite a bit of oils only to find the disks weren’t very strong smelling and super hard to store.
With that said I’d like to share with you my quick version of a shower Soother. I instead call it a Shower Soother Bomb. This is one you can mix together just minutes before hoping in the shower.
your favorite oils,and a glass container to mix it up in; I like to use my Pioneer Woman ramekins. They’re the perfect size and just so dang cute!
All you do is put about 1/4 a cup or so (I never measure it, I just fill one of these babies up about half way) and add in your oils and voila! All you have to do is add it to your shower. Super quick, super easy! I like to let my water warm up and pour it on the floor of the bathtub right where my shower water is hitting. It instantly fills your shower up with great smells. Whether your sinuses are bothering you or you just need a pick-me-up, these are a great way to start out your morning!
Here are my two favorite combos to use:
4 drops of Lemon
4 drops of R.C. (this is a respiratory blend containing Eucalyptus (E. globulus), Myrtle, Pine, Marjoram, Eucalyptus radiate (my favorite of the Eucalyptuses), Eucalyptus citriodora, Lavender, Cypress, Tsuga, and Peppermint.
Wake Me Up Combo:
4 drops of Cypress
4 drops of Bergamot
4 drops of Lemon/Citrus Fresh
This is such a refreshing blend and puts me in a happy mood, ready to take on the day!
Another oil I love to add to either one of these blends is the Northern Lights Black Spruce oil. This stuff makes you feel like you’re walking through a forrest. It’s great for a stuffy nose as well as helping you wake up. I add two or three drops of it often to my mixtures.
So there you have it, a quick and easy way to make a “shower soother bomb.”
Happy President’s Day!
