Homemade Vapor Shower Discs

Written by Nicole Garrity on . Posted in DIY, How To, Life, Uncategorized

When I use to get sick as a child  my parents would always come to the rescue with Vicks to ease my congestion. We always had a stock of the tissues infused with Vicks, a jar of the the vapor rub, and my personal  favorite the vapor shower discs.   I’ve always loved the shower discs because they are so easy to use.  All you have to do is place one on the floor of the bathtub and while you take a warm shower the bathroom gets filled with Vicks vapor! By the time you are done with your shower, your nose will no longer be stuffy and you can breathe! Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find them in quite some time and then recently I came across a homemade recipe for vapor discs! It is easy to do and they work just as well! If you hate being congested as much as I do, then you need to try these out. You’ll thank me later, xoxo.

vapor discs

What you’re going to need:

1 1/2 cups baking soda

1/2 cup water

Eucalyptus essential oil

Rosemary essential oil

Lavender essential oil

How to make them:

  1. Mix the water and baking soda in a bowl until it is a paste consistency.
  2. Evenly distribute the mixture into a cupcake pan. A silicone pans work great so you don’t have to use a liner, or you could use a metal cupcake pan.
  3. You can either leave the pan on the counter for 18-20 hours or place in the oven at about 225 for 15-20 minutes. Once out of the oven, leave out to finish drying for around 4 hours.
  4. When they are dry, put 8-10 drops of each essential oil on the disc. (you can add more of less drops depending on how strong you want the scent to be)
  5. Keep the discs in an airtight container so they won’t get soft. When a sinus infection strikes, just place one of the discs on the floor of the bathtub while you shower and you’re congestion will go away!

  • PROM IS NOT CANCELLED! In fact as we're speaking right now, there are already a number of parents in the community setting up private proms for a later date. We could really use your help as well in coordinating this private event for your children and their class.

    If each school can get 10 parents to start on their side I believe we can accomplish our goal of making sure everyone still has a prom this year. In order to keep costs low, it's time to try and bring the proms back to the school gyms as hosts. It may be difficult to convince the schools right now, but as this movement I'm going to call #PROMFOREVER gains traction, In the end it may break down into a few mini proms for a school instead of 1 big one as parents decide to host in their homes if they can't get the schools on board.

    This is going to take some work but we have the time to do it now. #PROMFOREVER. We need to get involved in the community! the limo companies, floral companies, live entertainment companies etc... Anyone who is normally involved in prom and would be affected if there was no prom.

    Many of you are thinking to yourself while reading this, yeah fat chance, you're a dreamer! But seriously THIS CAN HAPPEN. the question is are you going to be a part of it, or are you going to remain complacent and watch and see what others can do for you.

    One of the greatest joys I have in life and why I love this business so much is because I can have a thought transition into reality. I want you to enjoy this same feeling when this nonsense is all over. Not only are you going to save PROM but you are going to give so many young Americans the RIGHT THEY HAVE EARNED to experience this right of passage. This is an important step these young men and women need to take into the next stage of their lives.

    This is not a special time in human history. We have fought disease before and we will fight it again. It is through the resilience of our species that we overcome what is thought to be impossible.

    We are the Impossible
    We are Fighters
    We are Winners
