I saw a commercial for www.amazon.com/SudaCare-Soothers-Vaporizing-Tablets-tablets/dp/B0009RF9S2 awhile back. Had they been a little more affordable (7 tablets/ around $11), I probably would’ve tried them. But being the thrifty one, they just weren’t in my budget.
I searched around and found a recipe for homemade ones. I tweaked the recipe a bit and came up with:
- 1 c. baking soda
- 1/2 c. water (may take a little more to reach pancake batter consistency)
- 20 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- 8 drops Lavender Essential Oil
Bake at 350* for 20 minutes.
Toss 1 puck into your warm shower (careful not to step and slip on it) to release the smells. Yum!
Put baking soda in a medium sized bowl. Add 1/2 the water and mix. Keep adding and mixing water until you reach a pancake batter consistency.
Add your oil drops.
Line your cupcake pan with paper liners.
Add 1 heaping tbs. per liner. And bake. When checking to see if they’re done, notice the cupcake liner. Does it still look damp? If it does, give it a few more minutes. If you try pulling out the liner while a damp ring is just above the “batter” level, it will tear when attempting to remove.
My first attempt happened just like that ^^^. I had to use a fork to lift them out and came out with chips instead of pucks. Didn’t matter, they still worked. I just tossed 3-4 pieces in the bottom of my warm shower.
The smells released are marvelous! And the eucalyptus really opened up my sinuses.
