What I Love About These Shower Melts

I love the smell of these Christmas Morning Shower Melts. The pine-like, citrusy aroma gives off some holiday cheer. I can’t help but smile every time I catch a whiff. It’s such a happy scent that brings back all my happy memories during the holidays.

What’s in These Christmas Morning Shower Melts?

Solid Coconut Oil

One key ingredient in DIY shower melt recipes is solid coconut oil. Not only does this oil have a plethora of skin benefits, but it also helps to hold the ingredients together and give the melts a lovely, creamy texture.

Balsam Fir Essential Oil

To help remain calm during the stress of the season, just add a few drops of Balsam Fir Essential Oil to your shower melts and enjoy the uplifting scent as you start your day. This oil also has deodorizing and respiratory-supporting properties, making it perfect for the cold winter mornings.

Lime Essential Oil

Lime Essential Oil has an uplifting and refreshing scent that will definitely put you in the Christmas spirit. Not to mention, the bright citrusy aroma is sure to be the boost you need on those cold winter mornings.

A Mold

If you’re looking for something that’s both convenient and stylish, consider using an ice tray or something similar. Ice trays come in a variety of sizes and shapes, so be sure to find one that fits your needs.

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

If you are pregnant, consult your doctor prior to use.

This essential oil recipe is safe to use with kids aged 10+.
