Vapor Rub Shower Steamers
I've been wanting to try these Vapor Rub Shower Steamers for quite some time. Since everyone in my household prefers showers instead of baths they sounded perfect.
They're easy to make, just drop one or two on the floor of the shower near the drain as you get in. They dissolve during your shower releasing the vapors to help clear your congestion.
You'll need: Your favorite silicone mold, 3 Tablespoons Vicks Vapor Rub, 1 cup Cornstarch, 5-6 Tablespoons water, Soap coloring of your choice (optional)
In a medium mixing bowl, add the cornstarch, Vapor Rub, and 4 Tablespoons water.
Stir well. If the mixture still seems too dry, add more water as needed until a thick paste forms.
Drizzle 3-4 drops of Soap coloring (optional) into mixture
and stir until you reach your desired color.
Transfer the vapor rub paste into your silicone molds.
Freeze for 2 hours to allow the Shower Steamers to harden.
Once frozen, transfer to an airtight container.
These make a most appreciative gift for someone under the weather.

Mine melted in the air tight container before we could even use 1.
I don't think cornstarch and vapor rub would be good for the drain! A petroleum base which gets thick when cool and a cornstarch used for thickening and to make play dough, sounds like a recipe for clogged drains. Maybe baking soda with an essential oil that you can spoon on the bottom?
