Valentines for Him – Shower Tablet

I just loved Andee’s Shower Tablets and I thought that they would be great for your special man!

Many men love the scent of anise. What a great way for your sweetie to have an enjoyable shower without smelling like anise all day! These shower tablets are also great for scents that your honey loves that don’t particularly move you. What a great compromise!

Ingredients
12 ounces Baking Soda
6 ounces Citric Acid
2 ounces Cornstarch

20 drops of Chinese Star Anise Essential Oil
1.5 ounces Distilled Water in a spray bottle

Equipment
Container for weighing ingredients
Scale
Transfer Pipettes
Spoons
Molds

Mix the dry ingredients together. I am using a bag because it reduces cleaning and dust. Add the Chinese Star Anise Essential Oil. Mix well. Spritz water in your bag until it is moist. If you want any color, you can spritz it in with your water. Press into molds. Allow to dry and remove from the molds. Package in a bag. Enjoy!

    I bet it smells divine! Anise is one of my faves, but it’s my hubby’s number 1 scent.

    Oh I love anise! I just ordered some, so now I want to try it in everything. I didn’t know it was a guy-friendly scent, though. Glad to know. I have the hardest time coming up with gift ideas for the men in the family. Thanks for another great post.

    LOL! I am so glad you like it.

    The shower tablets are a lot of fun, so you can choose a scent
    for two to enjoy, or just indulge yourself. (I mean your honey!)

    My father and I really like Anise but it makes my mother gag.
    Compromise helps keeps the peace. Yea!

    The samples I made for this blog have been sent to shipping for inclusion in orders
    so even if you don’t win the challenge, there is an opportunity to try these!

    Best Wishes,

    Taylor

    Shower tablets sound fun. I am new to all of this fun stuff, do you just put them in the shower to make your shower scented?

    Yep! You just put them in the bottom of the shower and turn on the water.

    I put my shower tablets in the corner of the shower so that they last
    longer. (I prefer a lighter, longer lasting scent.)

    My father puts them directly under under the stream of water. He tells me
    that he wants that strong intense smell of the things my mother refuses to
    let him eat, wear or bring in the house. The shower tablet helps them
    compromise.

    I hope this answers your questions and happy toiletry making!

    I use the shower tablets as a foot scrub. These feel like a quick pedicure that was simply performed in the shower.
    I wonder if the shower floor gets cleaner because I scrub my feet across/through the tablet mixture.

    My husband and I definitely enjoyed using these in the shower, though I’d add a bit more Anise EO. We are both huge Anise lovers and when we smell Anise, we want to smell ANISE! ^.^
