DIY Shower Steamers- Breathe Easy and Naturally

These DIY Shower Steamers turn your shower into a soothing machine as the power of the essential oils fill the air,calm your lungs& open breathing passages. Cough, cough…. sniffle, sniffle….  I am just turning the corner and getting well again after a NASTY respiratory infection. One of the things that helped me most to get some respite and relief from the discomfort in my chest were these nifty little DIY Shower Steamers I made in minutes! Turn your shower into a soothing machine as the power of the eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils fill the air as you inhale, instantly calming your lungs and opening breathing passages.  You can buy these life-savers commercially but they are expensive and who knows what is in them.  In just a few minutes, and with only 4 ingredients I already had in my pantry, I whipped these disks up.
