Ease sinus congestion while you shower with this easy sinus shower steamer recipe. I find it a lot easier and more pleasant than a steam inhalation and it's just as effective.
|9 drops Rosemary|
|3 drops Peppermint|
|3 drops Geranium|
|2 cups Baking Soda|
|1 cup Water|
Add the baking soda to a glass bowl.
Slowly add the water and stir to combine.
Optional - add a few drops of food coloring.
Add the essential oils and stir again.
Pour the mixture into a 6 cup muffin pan or silicon mold and press it down gently. I suggest either using a silicon mold/pan or lining a standard muffin tin with silicon muffin liners as if you use paper liners, they stick to the shower steamers and can be very difficult to get off.
Let the steamers dry overnight or until they've set then gently remove them from the mold. How long they take to set will vary depending on the weather and in particular the humidity. If you have any trouble with them not setting or being too crumbly, it could be because of the humidity - if it's very humid, you might want to try again on a less humid day.
Gently remove the steamers from them mold.
Store the steamers in an airtight container or a zip lock bag until you're ready to use them.
When you're ready to use one of your steamers, place it on the floor of the shower towards the side, where the water just hits it . Breathe in the scent as you shower. If you put the steamer directly under the shower head, it can dissolve very quickly so it's best to have it off to the side a bit.
