Cold and Flu Shower Melts

I LOVE homemade remedies for when a cold/flu sets in! This is great for the whole family, especially for the little ones when they are sick and stuffy!! 



I saw this concept pop up on my newsfeed with Vapor Rub Shower Melts by The Homespun Hydrangea, so I thought I would make my own with my favourite Eucalyptus Oil.

You can use a silicon mini muffin tray or ice cube tray as the mould. Any other silicon moulds would work well as it is easy to pop out!

Use one or more shower melt (the more you add, the stronger the scent). 

Decant these into a small container or ziplock bag and store in the freezer for when you need some relief when a cold/flu hits in!!

COLD AND FLU SHOWER MELTS

Ingredients:

100 grams coconut oil
50 grams cornflour
30 grams eucalyptus oil

Method (Thermomix):

1. Place all ingredients in bowl - mix 3 minutes/50 degrees/Speed 2.
2. Pour into a silicon mini muffin tray/ice cube tray and freeze for a few hours.

Method (Stovetop):

1. Place all ingredients in a small pot and stir on low heat until mixture has combined and melted together.
2. Pour into a silicon mini muffin tray/ice cube tray and freeze overnight.

To use - whilst having your shower, place one (or more) shower melt(s) inside a small bowl, and place in the shower on or near the drain (this lets it last longer, and reduces the slipperiness of coconut oil spreading in the shower). If your bowl base is bigger than the size of the drain, then place it next to the drain.
