This is a guest post written by my friend, Shelby from Fit as a Mama Bear.

It’s no secret that as a mom, some days require a bit more of a boost in the mornings than others. If you’ve got  a big deadline, you’ve been up all night or you just need some me time, that’s where shower melts come in. These shower melts are designed to give your morning shower – and you!- a bit more energy than normal so you can stay a rockstar through your day. 

Diy Shower melts are one of life’s easiest luxuries. They’re extremely simple to whip up a batch and adding them into your morning routine makes such a difference. It’s the little things in life… 😉 

These homemade shower melts feature peppermint and lemon essential oils. Peppermint has been shown to release tension, stress and boost your alertness. Lemon is a citrus oil and it helps to give your mood a bit of a boost. 

These shower melts dissolve fairly quickly in  hot shower and give off their powerful scent as they dissolve. They’re a simple way to boost your mood during your morning routine.

How to make peppermint lemon shower melts

Grab an empty ice cube tray and portion half of the mixture into the cubes. Use a spatula to really press the mixture down- the more you press down the better they will hold together. 

Divide the remaining mixture on top and press down firmly once again. Use a few squirt of the spray bottle to top off the melts and press down one last time. 

Let them sit on the counter for twenty four hours to firm up. Afterwards, pop them out as ice cubes and store in a glass jar.  

When you want to use one simply grab a melt and place it the drain of your shower so it gets hit with the hot water running down-  this is what helps it melt.
