I have always been into using herbs, from cooking to home remedies. I made some Sinus Shower Blaster Tablets to help with sinus paid and pressure. The blasters are actually a version of a bath bomb and you put the tablet in the corner of your shower and when the water hits it, it will fizz like an bath bomb and release the scent of essential oils of eucalyptus, rosemary and mint to help clear your nasal passages. It's like a Vick's Vapo-Rub steam and has helped me a lot. Here is how I make them:
You will need:
- Citric Acid (available at health food stores, some home brewing supply stores)
- Baking Soda
- Witch Hazel
- Essential Oils of rosemary, eucalyptus and mint (or I have used the Sinus Blend from Wholesale Supplies Plus)
- Spray Bottle
- Mold for the tablets (I used a small condiment dish)
Pack the mixture into your mold, making sure to pack it down well. The harder you pack it, the longer it will last in the shower. Gently unmold your tablets and let them dry overnight.
Use one in the corner of a hot steamy shower to help relieve sinus problems.
Below is a picture of what mine look like.
