From my kitchen Vicks Shower bombs

As my earlier post said (you did read it?) the Flu is being passed around at work . My special treat – From My Kitchen is a Vaporizing Bath Melt. 

So Gather up these Supplies: 

  • 1/2 C  baking soda
  • 1 C  Corn starch
  • 5 T Vicks  ( i used generic kind)
  • 1 tsp water (as need to the mixture)
  • Ice Cub trays  ( mine are small from the Dollar store)  
You can add some green food coloring if you would like. But I don’t .

In a bowl add Corn starch and the Vapr -mix together. Add Baking soda to mixture and Mix. Add water to mixture as needed  -a little at a time -until it will hold together. Place in ice cub trays and place in freezer until set. When you take them out you can place in a container to give as a gift or use yourself. 

Use these in the shower by placing next to the drain and letting them melt.  Lisa 

This is with a touch of color.
