Good ol’ cold and flu season. You have a sore throat. You’re stuffed up. Or you’re just tired and want to relax and indulge in some self care? Then look no further.

These are literally the easiest to make and they are the perfect little burst of self love. Simply pop one of these in the shower and have the equivalent to a diffuser right in the shower with you. Let the hot water and steam dissolve these and fill your bathroom with this invigorating and relaxing aroma. 

You can personalize these as much as you want. For me, I wanted something for cold & flu season, and I also just have bad sinus issues, so eucalyptus, peppermint, and lavender were the perfect essential oils for me.

But you can customize these with whatever essential oils you would like! If you struggle with stress or anxiety like I do (who doesn’t? haha) the check out this blog I did about 6 Essential Oil Blends For Stress & Anxiety or if you don’t want a blend, and just want one essential oil then check out The Essential Oil Stress Kit (+ FREE printable!) which features individual essential oils that are great for stress & anxiety. I got you.

These also make wonderful gifts for family and friends. If you know someone’s specific scent preferences you could handmake them the perfect little self care gift! How thoughtful.
