Homemade Eucalyptus Shower Bombs To Destroy Your Colds and Flu
he season to be sick is upon us, and you may be looking for a natural cold and flu remedy to relieve congestion. You won’t believe how easy it is to make an all-natural shower bomb without any of the toxic ingredients in the store-bought products. It’s also a fraction of the cost to make your own – Amazon sells the same thing at $12 plus shipping for a package of 5 tablets.
If you have a fork and a muffin tin (or even a cookie sheet), you have all of the tools you need to make your own shower bombs. You aren’t limited to making these to treat congestion, either. With a different set of essential oils, you can make any fragrance you want to turn your shower into a posh spa experience.
About essential oils
I have a love-hate relationship with essential oils. I’ve always used them to scent my homemade products because it seems ridiculous to go to all the work of making a lovely non-toxic product and then add a petroleum or chemical fragrance to it. The hate part comes in with all of these multi-level marketing companies that endorse some pretty terrifying and unsafe medicinal uses for essential oils. For example, they should never be applied undiluted directly on your skin and it’s very questionable to ingest them. Please use great care and be certain the person you are taking advice from has actually had some training other than a three-day weekend convention geared to teach people how tosell oils.
Because we’re breaking free from shopping at the stores, I decided it was time to take the plunge and find an essential oil company that I have faith in. I’m very happy with Spark Naturals. The quality is high, there’s no big push for me to get others to sell them, and the website contains no outrageous claims or unsafe advice. These are the oils I recommend to you as well.

- 1 cup of baking soda
- 2 tbsp of salt
- Essential oils of choice ( I used a combination ofeucalyptus and peppermint)
- 1/3 cup of lemon juice
- Water as needed
- Muffin tin ( a mini muffin tin would make the best looking end product)
