Shower Tablets 4


I don’t know about you, but this cold winter has my nose running with nighttime congestion. Overall, not a fun situation. I like being able to breathe, thank you very much! I was browsing through my essential oil drawer and opened the bottle of Eucalyptus Essential Oil to sniff. Whew! Suddenly I felt like I could breathe again. This gave me the inspiration for this shower tablet that allows you to scent your shower with any scent you desire but not smell like it for the rest of the day!

Enjoy making these fun shower tablets!

Weigh all the dry ingredients and place into a mixing bowl. Gently mix until the dry ingredients have been completely mixed together. Add the essential oils and mix to break up all clumps. This mixture must be a free-flowing powder before we start adding color and water.

Mist lightly with the plain water bottle. Two to four sprays should be plenty. We are trying to add enough water to the dry chemicals so we can compress them into the mold, we don’t want to start the fizzing reaction just yet. Stir, or fold over, the powder to mix thoroughly and not create a dust cloud in your kitchen.

Let’s spray again. Stir gently.

This time we will spray color. Two to four sprays are plenty. Mix again. We will continue in this process of adding color or plain water to the mixture just until the whole mixture is slightly damp. The mixture should hold together when tightly compressed. (See the clod in my hand?)

Let’s press into the mold. Use the back of a spoon or a tamper to compress this powder completely. Each mold was filled with 2 tablespoons of dry/damp mixture before tamping begins.

We are using a silicone mold so removal is easy as pie. Leave the tamped snowmen to dry overnight.

In the morning we remove the mold and…. Viola! Our snowmen are ready for packaging. I have used the 4*6 flat bags for packaging these snowmen and then closed the package with a label.

Now wasn’t that easy?

Notes:
If you don’t want to press the mixture into molds, you can press the mixture into a tablespoon and then lightly tap the tablespoon into your hand to release it. You can make multiple half ball fizzies and set them aside to dry where they won’t be bothered.

I used silicone ice cube trays that are a snowman shape. These were on sale after Christmas and I was very excited to pick them up!

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
