Winter Shower Melts Recipe: Relief from the Season
Here on Ruffles and Rain Boots, we love to make our own bath products. Our bath bomb recipes for beginners and shower fizzies recipes are popular because they work for anyone!
These shower melts aren’t the ones that dissolve instantly when placed in the shower stream – I dislike it when the shower melts are gone in seconds! I’ve made an easy shower melts recipe maximizes the aromatherapy release for cold relief.
If you make your own bath items, you’ll have everything on hand. If not, Amazon is your friend – I get almost everything from there with Amazon Prime. Pro-tip: if you have Amazon lockers in your area, use them! Sometimes I get my 2-day shipments the same day when I send them to the lockers. #win

How to Store and Use These Easy Shower Melts
These winter shower melts make a great gift for yourself or others. These aromatherapy melts should be stored in an airtight container or in airtight bags. Note: if you make larger shower melts, you can even heat-shrink them in their own cello bags.
To use our easy winter shower melts recipe, just place one of the melts in the shower’s water stream and breathe deeply. Note: these are NOT to be used as bath bombs because of the high concentration of essential oils.
