Want to turn your shower into a mini spa getaway? These stress-busting shower pucks are a breath of fresh air! With just five easy-to-find ingredients, whipping up a batch of these soothing little wonders is as effortless as the results are satisfying. All you need is baking soda, water, food coloring, a muffin tray, your favorite essential oils, and you're half-way there.
Customize them with your own selection of scents and colors – or stick with the classics like lavender for relaxation or citrus for a morning pick-me-up. Better yet, fight back that stubborn Fall cold with the refreshing, powerful scent of peppermint and eucalyptus. When you're done, just throw one down at the far end of the shower, and boom – instant aromatherapy.
Don't just shower. Shower yourself in irresistibly deep relaxation.
- 2 cups baking soda
- 2/3 cup water
- Food coloring
- Muffin tin, liners, or a silicon muffin tray
- Essential oils
Add 2 cups baking soda to a mixing bowl. Slowly add 2/3 cup of water to the baking soda, mixing well. Add more if it needs it - the consistency should look pasty.
Add any food coloring that you'd like since white can look a little plain. We used three drops of purple, and three drops of green for lavender and mint green.
Put into a silicon muffin tin or a paper-cup lined muffin tin. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool.
Add 2 drops of each scent (we used peppermint and eucalyptus) to each cooled puck - it will seep through to the bottom!
Once the essential oils have been completely absorbed (leave for a few hours or overnight), hop in the shower for a steamy aromatherapy session.
