D.I.Y Cold Soothing Shower Bombs
When you come down with the sniffles from a seasonal cold, a hot shower is a momentary sanctuary. These DIY soothing shower bombs add to the ambiance.
What’s not fun when the seasons change: the evident chance of catching a common cold. Between sneezing and watery eyes, it’s enough to wish the weather would stay in one temperature bracket (even if that means below 50 degrees).
Yet, luckily enough, when a cold does hit, the shower becomes a safety zone. The steam gently opens up our passage ways and allows us to smell again…even if only momentarily. It’s as though for an instant, you’ve returned to a normal, non-runny nose person.
So, how can you make this extravagent experience better? Add some lovely scents to boost that sanctuary vibe.
While you can do this with a simple, great-smelling homemade soap, we much prefer a fun DIY. After all, who doesn’t love a fun project?
Today we’re making Soothing Shower Bombs. Featuring awakening peppermint, and uplifting eucalyptus, this blend will have your senses screaming.
Soothing Shower Bombs
What You Need:
1 cup baking soda
½ cup cornstarch
⅓ – ½ cup water
How To Make:
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the baking soda and cornstarch until no lumps remain.
- Add the eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils to ⅓ water, then add that water to the baking soda mix. Add more water as needed (up to ½ cup) until the mixture has become a thick paste.
- Line a 12-cup mini muffin tin with paper liners, and divide the mixture evenly between the prepared cups. Place the muffin tin in the freezer, and freeze them until they’re completely set.
