These are super simple, plus a little time.
I liked making these shower bombs because they serve a medicinal purpose. Every fall and winter I suffer from unending sinus infections which saps my energy. I discovered Thieves essential oils in the fall, which has tremendously reduced the inflamation in my nose. I diffuse the oil at night but sometimes I feel like I need an extra boost for the daytime. That's when these shower bombs come in. I drop one of these in the bottom of my shower in the morning and the steam helps diffuse the oil in the shower and gives me a little boost during the day.
To make these shower bombs you need the following:
1 c cornstarch or baking soda or half and half
4 T water or more
6 drops of Thieves oil
a mold, such as an ice cube tray
Measure out the cornstarch. Drop in the oil and mix using a fork. Add in one tablespoon of water and mix, and continue to add water one tablespoon at a time and mix. I added enough water to pack it into a ball shape. Once mixed, spoon mixture into molds. Place into freezer and freeze. When frozen, pop from mold and store in a cool, dry place. When ready to use, turn on shower until steamy. Drop bomb onto shower floor and let melt. The oil will escape into the steam. Inhale deeply.
