Shower melts are one of my favourite essential oil accessories. They are such a clever way to experience the benefits of Aromatherapy as you take a shower.
Shower melts are little cakes of bi-carbonate of soda, citric acid, corn starch and essential oils that fizz and melt as they get wet, diffusing the oils throughout your shower enclosure as they do so.

I make batches of plain melts and then add the essential oils just before I use them. I pick something different every time.
In fact I love to customize the scent of my shower melts depending on when I take my shower. Today I’m sharing all of my favourite blends as well as when I use them.
