I started with a small bowl of baking soda. I added water a little at a time and mixed. I thought since the essential oils are also liquid, I shouldn't wait until the end to add them because this would make the mixture more runny. I chose sweet orange, eucalyptus and tea tree essential oils. Not realizing the sweet orange didn't have a dropper top, I kind of dumped more than I anticipated in the bowl. Oops! Oh well, it smells wonderful and has a nice yellow color just like butter.
I decided to use mini muffin cups since I don't usually take that long of a shower anyway. And this would be the perfect amount to add to a bath.
I had thought about using my silicone muffin pans, but wondered if the oils would leave their scent and render them unusable for cooking in the future. I opted for the paper cups and filled them to the top.
I placed them next to my air purifier to dry faster and my house smells awesome! Not to mention my sinus' were starting to clear out. You can also place them in the oven to bake to dry faster. I prefer having my house smell....awesome... for a little while longer.
