Shower Melts For Congestion

Here in St. Louis the weather has been a chore lately. The temperature is just going up and down so much. One day it will be 35 degrees and the next day it will be back up into the 50’s. It’s just that time of the year. I’m not sick. The weather is just going up and down, which is creating some allergy like symptoms. One day it will be 35 degrees and the next day it’s back up to the 50’s. UGH. The struggle is real. But shower steam actually helps to fix the problem when you wake up in the morning. So these shower melts are a must!

 

Snowflake Peppermint Shower Steamers

SUPPLIES NEEDED
1 1/2 cups cornstarch, divided
40 drops peppermint essential oil, divided
2 tablespoons witch hazel, divided
4-6 tablespoons water, divided
Ingredients for making melts for showers. Blue snowflake mold, corn starch, water and peppermint essential oil.
DIRECTIONS (see steps in pictures below)
1.   Pour half of the cornstarch (3/4 cup) into a metal or glass mixing bowl.  Add 20 drops of peppermint essential oil and 2 Tablespoons of water and stir.
2.   Add 1 tablespoon of witch hazel.  I like to use mine in a small spritzer bottle. It’s not required- I just think it gets distributed better that way). Stir again.
3.   Pick some of the mixture up in your hand and squeeze it.  If it holds its shape, it is ready to transfer to the mold.  If not, add an additional tablespoon of water and stir.
4.   Once your mixture passes the “squeeze test,” transfer to the snowflake molds, pressing down firmly to pack the mixture into each mold.
5.   To make blue snowflake shower melts, add 4-5 drops of blue soap colorant (more if you want a darker blue color) to a bowl with 2 tablespoons of water.  Add the colored water to the remaining cornstarch and mix. Add 20 drops of peppermint essential oil and stir well.
6.   Add 1 tablespoon of witch hazel. Test the mixture to see if it clumps in your hand after squeezing it. If so, transfer the mix to the silicone molds. If not, add an additional tablespoon of water and stir. Repeat the “squeeze test.” If it stays together after squeezing the mixture, you are ready for the snowflake molds. If not, add an additional tablespoon of water.
7.   Firmly pack the mixture into each mold and freeze for one hour.
8.  Gently pop out each snowflake shower steamer from its silicone mold and allow to air dry overnight. Store in an airtight container.  ENJOY!

HOW TO USE
1.   Place 1-2 snowflake steamers in the corner of your shower, away from the main stream of water. The steam from the shower will help activate the steamer and release the uplifting and energizing aroma of peppermint!
