You are going to LOVE these.
I always laugh a little when I see accoutrements for the bath.
WHO ARE THESE BATH-TAKING PEOPLE?????
Yes, I’d LOVE to take a long relaxing soak now and then. But seriously? Not. Happening.
That said, I DO believe in taking little indulgences wherever – and whenever – I can fit them in.
And aromatherapy is a perfect little indulgence.
Something as simple as a scented drawer satchet, a heavenly smelling dish soap, or a diffuser popped on the sink can take a mundane moment and make it feel like a mini-escape.
Which is when I came up with the idea of a shower melt. Because why shouldn’t a shower – even a quick 10-minute one – be a little more special?
Fortunately I found several tutorials on-line that proved to be super easy to execute.
A jar of these melts would make a perfect gift for any lady in your life – mom, teacher, babysitter – and a good reminder that we all need to take a little time for ourselves.
½ cup baking soda
½ cup cornstarch
10 drops lavender essential oil
1 – 2 tablespoons dried lavender
silicone mold (I used this one)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of water and stir to combine. The mixture will be dry and crumbly. Continue adding water, a tablespoon at a time, till a small amount of the mixture clumps together when you squeeze it.
Spoon the mixture evenly into your mold and press to level. Freeze overnight.
Pop the melts out of the mold and place in a covered jar or container.
