I love self care and relaxing. It is all good with me. However, I struggle with taking baths. I just don’t feel like making that kind of time. I will take a bath maybe once or twice a year, but I hope to increase this number now that school has been completed!
In the mean time I take showers and I want to have more aroma therapy while living on the go. Dropping my kids off at school, making breakfast, helping the boys get ready for the day, meal planning, errand planning and so on.
I made awesome mint chocolate chip shower bombs. They are super easy to make and the ultimate aromatherapy to enjoy.
1 C. Citric Acid Powder
1 C. Baking Soda
1 C. Cornstarch
1/4 C. Almond Oil or Olive Oil
1 tsp. Cocoa Powder
1 Tsp. Green Tea Powder
Peppermint Essential Oil (40-50 drops)
Dark Chocolate Fragrance Oil (40-50 drops)
Pour the cornstarch, baking soda, and citric acid into a bowl and mix gently until all the ingredients are blended. Next, Pour the oil into the powder mixture, blend the mixture until you reach a doughy texture. Separate the dough in two different bowls. Add the green tea powder and peppermint essential oil and blend, the dough will turn green. In the other bowl, add the fragrance oil and cocoa powder and blend the mixture until the dough turns brown. Next scoop the green mixture into a muffin tin, only fill your tin half way. Next, add brown dough on top of the green dough inside the muffin tin. This creates a fun mint chip ombre effect. Allow your shower bombs to set for 24 hours. To remove the shower bombs from the muffin tin mold, place the muffin tin in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Use and Storage:
Wrap your shower bombs in aluminum foil or in an air tight container until use. One shower bomb will last 6-8 showers, just cut a piece off for each shower.
How to Use:
To use the shower bomb, place a piece of the shower bomb on the floor of your shower out of direct water flow, however they work well with just a little residual water moistening them during the shower. At the end of your shower, wash any remaining remnants down the drain.
