DIY: Pinterest-Inspired Shower Steamer

So you’ve got that naggggggging cough, huh?

It’s kind of hard to start a brand new year while you’re still carrying around germs from last year.

I have been sick since the moment I went away for holidays until now.

But I’ve found the cure! Or at least a good excuse for some alone time.

I made these incredible little shower pucks that you put at the other end of your shower that smell like Lavender and Eucalyptus. Once the shower starts to steam up a bit, you’re transformed into a sauna filled with good vibes and head clearing scents. Try it yourself!


Here’s what you’ll need:


Add your 1 cup of baking soda to a glass bowl.

Slowly add 1/3 cup of water to the baking soda. Add a little bit at a time. Add more if it needs it. It’s supposed to look pasty.

Mix well. Add any food colouring that you’d like. White is a little plain. I coloured mine a relaxing seafoam green. Ow la la!

Put into a silicon muffin tin or a paper-cup lined muffin tin.

Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Let cool.

Add 2 drops of each essential oil of your choice to each cooled puck. (it will seep through to the bottom!)


Once the essential oils have been completely absorbed (I left mine over night), hop in the shower for a long, steamy, session.

Let me know how it worked!
