Valentine’s Day is almost here and we are running out of time. Today I wanted to share a quick and easy gift that you can claim you slaved over for days when you were actually able to get them done in 30 minutes. Go ahead and exaggerate. I won’t tell.

These shower tablets are the perfect thing to freshen and perk him up in the morning without requiring a drastic change to his routine or an additional product to use. I don’t know about you but most men I know are 1 or 2 product guys. They like simple and easy.

Adding Essential Oil

Adding Essential Oils


Mix the dry ingredients together. I prefer to use a bag because it reduces cleaning and dust. I am all about less dishes! Add the essential oils. Mix well. Spritz water in your bag until it is moist. If you want any color, just add some dye (water soluble) color to your water. Press the damp mixture into molds. Allow to dry and remove from the molds. Package in a bag. Enjoy!

Note of Caution: Do not package your shower tablets in glass. If any water gets into the container, if the container is then sealed up, the expansion can cause a dangerous explosion. Please be safe. We highly recommend “single serving” sizes packaged into plastic bags. These are much safer and give you plenty of cute options.
