Homemade vicks shower disks If you are congested, pop one in the floor of your shower, let the steam do it's work! Have you seen the commercials for the Vicks Vapor shower disk thingies? You put one of these disks in your shower, and voila thanks to the vapors in it, you're magically healed, your cold is gone, and your face is shockingly free of snot. I always used to watch the "Noxema girl" splashing water on her face and wondered how she was able to wash her face without being completely overrun with boogers. I'm the only one? Yes? Ok, moving along then... Regardless, Vicks makes these things and I'm sure they're super expensive for something that is just going to wash down your drain. You know where I'm going with this, right? Yep. I made them myself. Sarah's Homemade Vicks Shower Disk Thingies: -Baking soda -Water -Essential oils: eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender. -Muffin tin -Muffin liners 1) Add baking soda to a mixing bowl. I don't really measure. Maybe 2-3 cups? 2) Slowly add water until you've made a thick paste. Add just a little water a time. You'll want the mix to feel like putty. 3) Add 15 drops of each essential oil: eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender. 4) Spoon in to a muffin tin, and let sit out for 12-18 hours. You can also bake these, but I just left them out overnight. 5) Pop these suckers out of the paper liner, plop it in your shower, and let the essential oils steam away your stuffy nose. Put them anywhere on the floor of the shower; it doesn't matter where! Added 4/7/12 - for anyone who is having issues with these being "crumbly", try using 1 cup of baking soda and 1/3 cup of water (plus maybe a few tbslp more) and baking for 20 minutes at 350. THEN add a few drops of each essential oils to the cooled "puck". That was a suggestion from a commenter and I tried it this morning with great success! I'm a quick shower taker (less than 5 min), and my "disk" was only about 1/3 gone at the end of the shower. You can store these in an plastic container, mason jar, etc
