I love this idea, and my girls will definitely be getting some of these in their stockings this year!
It’s been so fun to partner with Plant Therapy for this year’s 101 Days of Christmas series, and Christina, one of their staff aromatherapists and resident bloggers, has put together a few of her favorite projects to share with Life Your Way readers as well. These are one of her creations.
The really cool part about these disks is you make them ahead of time without any scent and then add the essential oil of your choice right before your shower. That means after a hard day you can enjoy a relaxing shower as the scent of lavender mingles with your steam. On a busy morning, a little orange or lemon can help wake you up. For the kids, Plant Therapy’s A+ Attention would be great before a big test at school. Or Germ Destroyer when a virus is going around at school. Really, the possibilities are endless!
- 1-1/3 cups baking soda
- 1/2 cups water
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
In a small bowl, combine the baking soda and water to form a thick paste.
Spoon into a silicone mold of your choice.
Bake for 30 minutes. Turn oven off and allow mold to cool on the rack.
When it’s completely cool, move the mold to the counter to sit overnight.
After 24 hours, remove the disks from the molds and store in an airtight container.
To use: Add 5-8 drops of essential oil and set the shower disk on the floor of your tub or shower. You don’t want it directly in the spray, but some water should hit it.
