This is an exceptionally easy, joyful little thing to whip up in the kitchen, and they make beautiful gifts.
You will need
2 cups of baking soda
1/2 cup of water
About 10 drops of your favorite essential oil
Put the baking powder in a bowl, and stir in the water until it has a mostly dry consistency like Moon Sand. It took about 1/2 cup for me, but it will depend. You want to be able to pack it like brown sugar.
Mix in your essential oils. I used bergamot and rosemary for a pick-me-up.
Fill your ice cube trays or silicone molds with the paste and pack it down firmly. You want it to maintain its shape.
Let them dry. If you’re using a silicone mold that can go in the oven, bake it at 200 degrees for an hour. If your mold isn’t heat resistant, just let it dry on the counter for three days. If they don’t dry completely, they’ll simply crumble and you’ll be a sad panda.
Take one tablet and put it on the floor of your shower. The water will break it down and release the mood-boosting scent. It’s just one tiny little thing you can do to add a bit of sparkle to your day. Have a great one!
