A shower melt is like a bath bomb for the shower. It's made almost the same way as a bath bomb, but it can have more essential oils in it. Therefore, you should not use this as a bath bomb. To use it, simple get it wet and set it away from where water will directly hit it. It will release the essential oils and turn your shower into an aromatherapy spa.
Stress Relief Shower Melts
I think we can all use some stress relief this year. These shower melts are made with lemon and lavender essential oils to promote stress relief. They are easy to make and they make great gifts too.
- 2 cups arrowroot powder or corn starch
- 1.5 cups baking soda
- 1 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 5 drops lavender essential oil
- 5 drops lemon essential oil
- 1 tablespoon dried lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers
- 2 tablespoons witch hazel
Melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Then combine all ingredients except the witch hazel in a bowl. Stir well. Spray with witch hazel until it starts to hold its shape when you squeeze it.
Press it into a mold. I used a half circle mold. Let dry for 24 hours and unmold.
These will last about 6 months. Water and humidity can activate them, so be careful to store them in a dry area. I store mine in mason jars or plastic bags so they stay dry.
