Problems with Breathing? Make These Easy Breath Shower Disks!

Stuffy nose, pollution, being sick often comes together. We have difficulties breathing and that what’s making our days even harder. When we are unable to breathe normally, we are restless because we have trouble with sleeping. Sometimes we face with headache and vomiting.

Do not take any medicine!

We have a solution for this problem by using Easy Breathing Eucalyptus Shower Disks.

They promote clear breathing and “open” the way for breathing in our body.

You can actually customize the essential oils used in these disks. All that depends on the aromatherapy benefits you need. Most homemade products keep the essential oil concentration in the range between 0 .5-2%. Since you won’t put these disks on the skin though, it’s completely safe to use a higher amount. You actually need to if you want to smell them. No one wants to spend time on a DIY project that doesn’t work after.

Peppermint

It is the first oil we’re using in this recipe. It’s excellent for clearing up the sinuses because it has high menthol content. It’s also a very energizing and awakening essential oil, so it’s perfect for morning shower. Peppermint also has antiviral and antibacterial properties to help kick your cold to the curb.

Eucalyptus

It is really the star of the show here. Like peppermint it also has high menthol content. It can help clear the nasal passageways. This study showed that Eucalyptus was helpful for bronchitis. It is extremely helpful for respiratory issues. It also has antimicrobial properties to help you recover from sickness and illness faster.

Baking soda

is what gives these shower disks their sustenance. The arrowroot powder actually helps them to dry hard.  You can store them in a nice glass jar for easy use, or you can simply gift some to a friend.  Don’t wait until a cold hits to enjoy the refreshing aroma. They’re just as good when used in your morning routine to help energize your body and mind for the day.

Easy Breath

Ingredients

  • 5 cups Baking soda (360 grams)
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder (available here) or cornstarch powder
  • 2 tbsp and 1 tsp water
  • ¾ tsp eucalyptus essential oil (120 drops)
  • ½ tsp peppermint essential oil (80 drops)

You also need:

  • Small glass bowl
  • Silicone mold or muffin tin
  • Fork
  • Airtight storage container

Instructions for Easy Breath Shower Disks 

Pour the baking soda into a small glass bowl, and add the essential oils. Use a fork to break up any lumps from the baking soda, and to mash the essential oils in.

Sprinkle the water over top of the baking soda mixture and use your hands or a fork to combine.

Firmly press the mixture into your favorite molds, or a muffin tray. Let your shower disks dry overnight, and then gently pop them out of the molds.

Store it in an airtight container. To use, place one in the shower and enjoy the aroma. You want to put your shower disk where the water will just barely hit it, but not directly under the shower head. The edge of the tub or the soap dish is great locations. This way the disk will be closer to your nose and won’t just wash down the drain in 30 seconds.
