Sometimes it is the simplest of things that make me have happy.
Here is one of them.
Herbal steam tablets.
You will need:
1 box of baking soda
Essential oils: eucalyptus, rosemary and lavender
a mini muffin tray and muffin papers
Place the baking soda in a bowl, then add a little water at a time to form a creamy paste. Then add 20 drops of each essential oil and stir well.
Pour into your paper lined muffin tins. Allow the mixture to dry for a day or two.
Voila you have heavenly scented tablets ready to enjoy in your next shower.
I don’t have mini muffin tins. I had the wrappers – I know that doesn’t make any sense. I also used other small decorative containers that have a pleasing shape.
Filled and ready to dry over night.
Store tablets in an air tight container.
I find these scents to be soothing and restorative as well as pleasing to my allergy suffering sinuses.
To use, place tablet in a location in your shower where just a small amount of the water hits the tablet at a time, otherwise they will dissolve too quickly. The steam will release the calming scent.
A little herbal information.

I hope you give these a try and that you find a little happy too.
See you later, Bye!
