Shower discs are great for lots of reasons. They’re inexpensive, easy to make and can be customized to suit a number of ailments or needs. Shower discs can help you relax after a stressful day, energize in the morning or help you alleviate some seasonal discomfort in your sinuses.
A few years ago I would have gone to the local drug store for all these needs. But now that I’m paying as much attention to the ingredients in the products of my bathroom cabinets as my kitchen cabinets-I have new remedies.
Recipes for shower discs are a dime a dozen, but this one has a secret ingredient! Hold onto your hats—it’s corn starch.
Many homemade shower discs have a very uneven and wrinkled surface, don’t hold their shape, and can barely make it to the shower before breaking into a thousand pieces. Not these. Cornstarch is the remedy for all of that. Don’t you just love secret ingredients?
First, gather these things from your kitchen. I can almost guarantee you already have them!
I used these free printables to label my jars of shower discs for Christmas gifts.
