DIY Bath Products – part five – Homemade Shower Disks

IMG_4589

Let me start by saying I’ve never been particularly crafty. My creative outlets have been cooking, gardening and photography.

Retired and with an addiction to Pinterest, I’ve started to look for “recipes” in which I could make things using my essential oils.

For this project, I made these amazing shower disks. These can be placed on the bottom of the tub while showering, releasing the scent of the oils in the steam.

I plan to also drop them into baths. I love a good soak in the tub while reading, meditating or enjoying a glass or wine – or sipping a shot of liqueur.

Homemade Shower Disks – makes 6 

1 cup baking soda

1/3 cup water to start, be prepared to add more

essential oils – I choose eucalyptus, lavender and wintergreen

Mix baking soda and water until it’s thick like a paste.  I used a silicone muffin pan (spritzed with olive oil) Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Turn the oven off. Remove and add your essential oils to each disk; I chose 3 drops eucalyptus, 2-3 drops lavender, 1-2 drops wintergreen onto each disk – it absorbs quickly.  Put the pan back in the oven to let them “cure” or dry a bit longer from the residual heat.

Store in a glass jar or in a ziplock bag.
