My sister gifted me some shower bursts over the holidays, and now I am hooked. Shower bursts are fragranced pucks that you put in your shower (out of direct water spray) and while you shower, the puck slowly disintegrates and releases fragrances. They are made with essential oil blends that either are uplifting, relaxing, or healing. They are heavenly, but each puck is about $4 and I can’t “have a latte” everytime I shower — So, I made my own.
I did a little research and found a few different recipes. I found a blend that is supposed to help with congestion, and well, tis the season to be congested.
Here’s what you need:
Essential oils (eucalyptus, lavender, rosemary)
Muffin tin and liners
Here’s how you create:
- Mix 1 cup of baking soda with 1/3 cup of water
- You should get a paste – add more water if needed to get from crumbly to a paste
- Add 15 drops of each oil
- Mix, mix, mix
- Spoon into the muffin tin (use a anti-stick spray before lining the tin with liners)
- Bake at 350 for 20 minutes
Instead of baking, you can let them sit for 12 hours or until they are solid
If you find they are crumbly you can still sprinkle in the shower. Try making them again using a little more water.
Store them in a large ziploc or any sort of air tight container.
Note: if you are baking these, you have the option of skipping the oil and adding a few drops to each puck after they have cooled. I will try that next time, because my entire house was taken over by the rosemary scent. And, you can have the option to try different oils on each puck. Play with it. Let me know what you think.
