Being sick is no fun, but the stuffy nose that often comes with it can really put a dent in your day. Conventional decongestants work by masking your body’s symptoms, and often have unwanted side effects attached. Symptoms range from restlessness and trouble sleeping, to vomiting, headaches and even seizures. Skip the questionable drugs, and use these eucalyptus shower disks to promote clear breathing instead.
Shower disks may be little, but they really pack a punch. You can customize the essential oils used in them, depending on the aromatherapy benefits you need. Most DIY products keep the essential oil concentration in the .5-2% range. Since these shower disks won’t be put on the skin though, it’s totally safe to use a higher amount, and you really need to in order to be able to smell them. No one wants to spend time on a project that doesn’t work as intended, so please don’t skimp on the essential oils here.
