As a very busy mom, I have very little time to pamper myself. Sometimes I feel like that time is non-existent, so I try to sneak little moments here or there to just take care of myself. Can you relate?
I took my shower time back from co-showering a while back, so that’s my time to take a deep breath and relax – most days.

I love using grapefruit first thing in the morning because it has a very uplifting fragrance. You can substitute other oils for other effects like calming and soothing.
That’s why I love homemade beauty products – you can customize them however you’d like using essential oils! Invigorate yourself at the beginning of the day or calm yourself down at the end of a long day.

- 1 cup of corn starch
- 2 tablespoons of distilled water
- 5-7 drops of grapefruit essential oil
- Ice cube tray (miniature works best)
- Yellow and red food coloring, optional
- Mixing bowl
- Mixing spoon
- Place the grapefruit essential oil and corn starch in a bowl. Mix well. The mixture will look like a crumbly powder.
- Add in a few drop of both yellow and red food coloring (optional) and continue to mix well. You may not notice a great deal of coloring until you do step 3 below.
- Add in the two tablespoons of water. Continue to mix to the colors disperse and clumps begin to form. Please note that this amount of water will NOT be enough to make the paste you are after. It is however a starting point so you can carefully ration water in and form your paste.
- Continue adding a few drops of water at a time, mixing well as you do. Once you have a thick paste, transfer the mixture to your mini ice cube tray. Smooth the mixture out flat.
- Freeze the contents for 1 hour or until the mixture is set. As long as you didn’t overdo the mixture with water, you do not need to leave the melts frozen. You can place them in a jar and store them in a cool and dry place. If your cubes seem like they are runny, opt to store them in the freezer instead.
- To use your grapefruit essential oil shower melts, place the melt on the floor of the shower and turn the water on. Enjoy the shower as you usually would, yet as the water and steam hits the melt, it will break down and diffuse the aroma of the oil into the air.
