DIY Shower Soother Discs

A few years back I used to purchase these shower disc things when ever I had a cold. I would drop them on the floor of my shower and the water would melt it, releasing the vapors that opened up my sinuses and gave me much needed relief. I haven't seen those in a long while and when I started using essential oils I figured there had to be a way to make them. Well low and behold there is!!! 

I found a simple recipe via google at Frugal by Choice, Cheap by Necessity. However, I made a slight adjustment. In my discs I only used Eucalyptus oil. Now on to how to make them!

Ok step one empty a box of baking soda into a bowl, next stir in water slowly until you get a paste like consistency, finally add your essential oils and stir. SO SIMPLE! After it's all whipped up, spoon the mixture in to a lined muffin pan and bake for 20 minutes. I added a few drops to each disc after they came out of the oven because I read that for some people the scent wasn't strong enough after baking. 

I added some food coloring to tint them, but I didn't add enough


Not so pretty after baking lol

I decided to wrap them in coffee filters for storage
because some of them were really crumbly
and the muffin liners were ripping

...and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine. -Ezekiel 47:12



  1. I made these from the same recipe and mine were so crumbly I couldn't get them out in one peice so I just broke them up and put them in a jar and sprinkled them to our bath. After your post I am going to give it another try!

    I love how yours look wrapped in the coffee filter! So cute!

  2. Now that is NEAT! I didn't even think of that one... that you could make them yourself. Thank you for sharing... and yes, very pretty wrapped.


I love reading your comments.

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. -Proverbs 16:24
