Calming Shower Melts
1 cup Cornstarch
2 tbsp Epsom salts
4 tbsp water plus extra
7-15 drops lavender essential oil
Mix together the lavender oil, cornstarch and Epsom salts then add the water. You will need to add extra water to form a thick paste, but do so gradually. Once you have a paste, pour into ice cube trays or moulds and freeze until set. As long as you didn’t use too much water, you may remove the melts from the moulds and store in an airtight container. To use, place a melt on your shower floor and enjoying the calming lavender aroma.
When using your shower melt (my melts we're very small so I used 3/4 per shower), place it towards the back or sides of the shower, not directly in the line of the water or it will fizz away too quickly. Let the shower water gently lap against the shower melt and breathe deeply as the essential oil aromas waft up.
