DIY Eucalyptus Use For The Shower When You Have Flu And Cold

It is the season for colds and flu and we need natural remedies for this and congestion that goes along too. It is easy and great to take a shower bomb that is toxin free and natural. And you can make it at home too but also buy it from Amazon for $12 and shipping cost. This is for 5 tablets.

Get a fork and muffin tin to make a shower bomb. You can make these especially when you have a cold or flu. With various essential oils even fragrances can get in the shower cabin as well.

Essential oils

These are something special. I have used them for making non-toxic ingredients for smell and with petroleum too. But, the bad thing is that companies promote these oils for medicine use and not in a safe way. Let’s say, you must not use them directly on the skin or ingested! Take care of this and if you want to sell oils, get a course that lasts more than 3 days.

We won’t tell you to shop all the time, and that is why I found an oil company that is great. This is the Spark Naturals. Their quality is perfect, I am not forced to sell all the time and their website has useful advice too. Use DAISY coupon for ordering to get 10% discount.

For making shower bombs, follow this:

You need:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • Essential oil you choose ( I go for mint and eucalyptus)
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • Water
  • Muffin tin

How to make it?

Take a glass bowl for mixing and mix the salt and soda with fork. Add the lemon juice bit by bit to get it fizzy. Again stir. Add water a few spoons until it looks pasty, moist and semi-crumbly. Oil the muffin tin so the paste won’t get sticky to it. You can use cooking oil but also almond or coconut. Roll the dough in the hands and put it on the tin. Or visit Martha Stewart site and see advise for the shape by pressing them in the tin with cookie cutter. I just did it with my hands and the fork.

Bake them for half an hour at 350 degrees and after that they will resemble cookies. I call them shower cookies.

Remove from the tin with spoon and let it cool. During this time, add 3 drops Eucalyptus and 1 drop mint oil to each ‘cookie’. Leave overnight. Then place them in the shower in some jar. The longer they are that way, the more potent they are.
