DIY Vicks Cold & Flu Shower Pucks
|November 7, 2012||Posted by under Bath & Body Recipes, Crafts, Gifts|
I found this via Pinterest (of course!) and wanted to make them. They are so easy! There were two methods to this and I found that one works a lot better.
This makes a great budget gift as well! Perfect for winter months.
Here is the recipe:
1 cup baking soda
1/3 cup water
Essential Oils (Eucalyptus, Tea Tree & Lavender OR Eucalyptus, Rosemary & Lavender)
Dried lavender (optional)
Mix the baking soda and water. Add 12 drops of each essential oil in the mixture and stir. Line a muffin tin with 4 liners and separate the mixture between them. I also sprinkled some dried lavender on top but that is optional. Let dry for at least 24 hours. Then store in air tight container or bags. To use, place one puck on the bottom of your shower and shower as per usual! The essential oils will slowly evaporate and you will be able to smell them and get a little relief if you are stuffed up.
*I am letting mine dry a few days to ensure that the puck lasts longer in the shower.
Here are mine.
