April 26, 2016

Simple DIY essential oil shower melt recipeWhat’s better than relaxing in a steeping hot bath with essential oils, after a long day? For us shower people, it’s washing away the day’s worries in a hot n’ steamy, or cool and refreshing shower. But how do we combine our shower disposition with our love for essential oils? Easy to make and fun to use, Essential Oil Shower Melts are the answer to your question!

What you need:

  • 1/2 c. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 c. Epsom Salt
  • 2 Tbsp. Water (may need to add more)
  • 40 drops of EOs
  • Silicone Molds (optional)

Directions: 

  1. Combine baking soda and Epsom salt. Add water and EOs little by little until the mixture is slightly wet
  2. Pack mixture into silicone molds, or scoop out tablespoons of the mix. The mixture should not crumble when being packed
  3. Set aside for a day or two until they are hardened
  4. Once hardened, remove from molds and place on the bottom of your shower. Store the remaining shower melts in a jar. Enjoy!

    I finally got around to making these. I made a 1/8 batch (2 tbsp each of the dry ingredients), yet still added the full 5 drops of essential oil. Even with using eucalyptus bath salts, there was no discernible scent when I used it in the shower. (I realize this may be in part because I used the Joy blend, which is more subtle.) The second one I used, I added 5 additional drops (this time Respiratory Ease) directly to the shower melt before using it in the shower, and whereas it wasn’t strong, it was noticeable. So for a full recipe, I’m guessing a mere 5 drops wouldn’t do anything. I was thinking to make these to have in stock for cold and allergy season, and I will definitely be adding a lot more EO than called for to make it effective for congestion.
    Thanks for the recipes! I’m enjoying experimenting, and my husband has gotten on board, asking me to find recipes for this and that. I’m loyal to your oil….. :) This is my go-to site.

    Made half the recipe. (I’m experimenting). Added RELAXATION and LAVENDER oil and emptied a bag of herbal tea with lavender with other relaxing herbs. Going to make these for my wedding guests for wedding favors.

    This is for Kerri…..in making your bath bombs you can substitute 2 Tbsp of any carrier oil for the 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil as the carrier oils won’t solidify in all but cold temperatures.
