Spearmint Shower Steamers

Shower steamer ingredients

1cups baking soda
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup epsom salt
1/2 cup citric acid
3 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp water 
1/2 tsp or less essential oil  (I used coco's blend From Plant Therapy, this is a kidsafe blend that smells like mint gum)
green food coloring
green mica

For the shower steamers first mix all of the dry ingredients except for the citric acid. You want to mix wet and dry ingredients separately and then mix them together then, add citric acid. This makes it so the reaction with the baking soda and citric acid doesn't start when you add your wet ingredients. After everything is mixed you want your mixture to be similar to wet sand and stick together on its own.

to mold my Shower Steamers I used a mini cupcake mold. (silicone molds will work best). I just filled the molds up and packed each compartment with the shower steamer mixture.

Let dry over night. To use just throw the steamer on the bottom of the shower and the steam from the shower will pick up the scent and help to clear your sinuses.
