Cold season is coming!!! Between kids going back to school and the cooler weather, people tend to catch those winter colds.
Treating those beginning stages of colds is crucial to nip them before then become a full-fledged disaster in your household.
As a child, I remember my mom buying the “Vic’s Shower Discs” and throwing them in the bottom of hot steamy showers to let all of the vapor smells steam up and fill the bathroom to relieve cold symptoms and help breathe better. My kids and I make up our own with essential oils and baking soda. These are the perfect “gift” for someone who is feeling a little down and out.
15 drops of essential oils to 1 cup baking soda ratio. We use Young Living Essential Oils for our entire household. For more information visit www.youngliving.com/krismazy
You will need baking soda, essential oils (we use Eucalyptus, Lavender and Rosemary or simply just Eucalyptus), water (enough to make a gooey thick putty-like paste), cupcake tin and paper cupcake liners OR a silicon baking tray that is divided into little squares.
Mix together all ingredients in a glass bowl and dish out evenly in the cupcake liners or silicon brownie pan. Let sit over night to dry.
