Handmade Gift Idea :: Vicks Vapor Shower Disks

I have spent the majority of my lifetime trying to find the perfect man gift - one that is practical and says "I am thinking about you" - in a manly way. And I think I finally found it!

What better way to tell that man in your life that he is special?
It's everything a man needs: practical and helpful.
I found it on Pinterest, and here is the link to the original post.
Here is how it is made:

-2.5 cups of baking soda
-Essential oils: eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender.
-Muffin tin
-Muffin liners


1. Add baking soda to a mixing bowl.
2. Slowly add water until you've made a thick paste.  Add just a little water at a time.  You'll want the mix to feel like putty.
3. Add 15 drops of each essential oil.
4. Spoon in to a muffin tin, and let sit out for 12-18 hours.  You can also bake these, but I just left them out overnight.
5. Pop these suckers out of the paper liner, plop it in your shower, and let the essential oils steam away your stuffy nose.  Edited to add: put them anywhere on the floor of the shower; it doesn't matter where!

A great way to say to the guy in your life, "You're congested. Here, take a shower disk. This will make you feel better. See how much I love you?"
