If I learned anything from living with him after his knee injury and surgery in the Army I learned that when that man falls the takes anything nearby down with him. These Peppermint Eucalyptus All-Natural Decongestant Shower Disks are just the right fit.
Benefits of using decongestant shower tabs
Relief from sinus congestion and cold symptoms: The steam from a hot shower can help clear nasal passages and relieve symptoms such as stuffy nose, sinus pressure, and headaches. Decongestant shower tabs enhance this effect by releasing essential oils and other decongestant ingredients into the air, providing even greater relief.
Improved breathing and sleep: By helping to clear nasal passages and relieve sinus pressure, decongestant shower tabs can improve breathing and promote better sleep.
Soothing and relaxing effects on the body: Many decongestant shower tabs contain essential oils and other natural ingredients known for their calming and relaxing effects. This can help reduce stress, tension, and muscle soreness.
Enhanced shower experience: Decongestant shower tabs can add a spa-like experience to your shower, with the soothing scents and therapeutic effects of the ingredients.
Convenient and easy to use: Decongestant shower tabs are easy to use and do not require any special preparation or setup. Simply place one in the shower and enjoy the benefits.
Peppermint Eucalyptus All-Natural Decongestant Shower Disks
These are not bath bombs they are meant for the shower similar to the popular vapor rub disks without any sticky slipperiness in your shower. You can use cupcake cups to create a disk shape but I used my rectangle soap molds that I just love, they are so easy to take out.
I may have gotten tired of dealing with cute molds after I spent all last weekend fighting to make bath bombs that kept breaking. You could use any oven-safe mold.
What you need:
- Your choice mold
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1/3 cup water
- peppermint essential oil
- eucalyptus essential oil
Make your own All-Natural Decongestant Shower Disks
Mix baking soda, cornstarch, and salt together. Slowly add the water to create a paste. this should be a thick paste that is playable the less excess water the faster it will dry in the oven.
Place into your silicone mold or lined muffin tin. These do not have to per perfect. If you plan to give as gifts or sell you may want to choose a cute mold to make them more fun.
Bake on 350 for 30 minutes to allow them to dry. You want these to be fully dried before storage so leave them longer if any moisture remains.
Cool completely before you remove from the mold.
Add 4 drops of peppermint and 2-3 drops of eucalyptus oil to each shower disk.
Store in an airtight container to prevent the oils from evaporating. Small disks look great on the bathroom counter in a mason jar.
These disks can be changed up by adding any essential oil you want. The sky is really the limit. Try coffee and vanilla essential oil for a wake me up similar to the espresso sugar scrub while in the shower. The baking soda holds the essential oils and the cornstarch and the cornstarch and salt holds them together.
