Ho Wood Cold Season Shower Discs DIY

Using your essential oils in the bath can be such a treat. Bath bombs and bubble baths not only smell amazing but also bring with them amazing therapeutic benefits. But who has time for a bath these days?! Sometimes all we get is a few minutes for a quick shower before work or bed. Luckily these Cold Season Shower Discs are a great way for you to enjoy your essential oils. All it takes is a few simple ingredients you already have in your pantry.

Once they’re baked, store them in an airtight container in your bathroom. Before you pop in the shower, add a few drops of essential oils and place the disc just outside the spray to enjoy the aroma and benefits of your oils. This combination of Rosalina, Ho Wood, and Mandarin will help boost your immune system, clear your breathing, and help you feel relaxed. It’s perfect for when you’re struggling with cold symptoms and need to get back on your feet.

  • I tried this and they did not turn out hard as rock at all. Maybe I need to bake them longer or something? Mine were the size of half a cake pop. Does elevation matter?

    1. It’s possible they were too large or that the elevation affected the bake time. Because these are meant to dissolve in the shower, you don’t really have to worry about overbaking.

  • What other EO combos do you suggest? I want to make a few different scents for gifts. Also, why do you need to wait until just before shower to add the oils?

    1. Really, you can do whatever combos you like! My personal favorite is actually a few drops of Respir Aid. The reason why it’s best to apply the EOs just before the shower is that the EOs degrade the shower discs a bit. And if they’re not stored correctly, they could lose their aroma.

    1. Whether or not this is KidSafe is really a personal decision. Since the oils are directly on the discs, your child could get oils on themselves if they touch, play with, or step on the disc. So it’s up to you as to whether or not you want to use them with your children.

  • I tried these and they turned out hard as rock. I used Eucalyptus and rosalina and couldn’t there was very little scent.

    1. Depending on how big they were, you might need to adjust the baking time or number of drops. When I made them, they turned out hard as well, but they dissolved just fine in the shower. And the aroma was definitely stronger once it was placed near the water.

    1. When I made these, I used a candy melt silicone mold. They were about half the size of a cake pop and turned out great.
