DIY Headache Relief Aromatherapy Shower Tablets

Find a little time to unwind with the soothing scent of these aromatherapy shower tablets. Designed to relieve tension and provide headache relief, the tablets will release the natural scents of lavender and peppermint oils to instantly remind you of a relaxing day at the spa. Place one or two tablets on the floor of your shower/tub, and let the water from your showerhead do all the work. The tablets are super easy to make and would make a great Christmas gift to share with friends and loved ones.

Here's what you'll need:

  • 350g bicarbonate of soda
  • 125ml cup water
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Silicone cupcake moulds
  • Baking pan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring cup
  • Spoon for mixing

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Measure 350g bicarbonate of soda and pour into a mixing bowl. Add 125ml cup water to the baking soda. Mix thoroughly. Ensure the texture of the mixture is similar to wet sand.

Step 2

Spoon the mixture into the silicon moulds, or you could use paper cupcake liners. Place the moulds/liners onto a baking tray or into cupcake pan.


Step 3

Place the pan onto the middle oven rack, and allow the tablets to bake for 15 to 17 minutes.

Step 4

Add 5 to 6 drops of each oil type to the tablets.

Step 6

Once the tablets have completely cooled, remove them from the moulds.

Step 7

While showering, place 1 to 2 tablets on the floor of your shower or bath, and allow warm water to melt them and release the vapour.

If you're planning on gifting the tablets, pop the tablets into a mason jar and add some decorative touches, and you're ready to hand them off as gifts to loved ones!
