3. Eucalyptus Shower Disks

When you’re super congested, sometimes a hot and steamy shower can help alleviate some of the gunk. Why not try making some shower disks to help alleviate some of your congestion more? This shower disk recipe, from Frugal by Choice, Cheap by Necessity, utilizes soothing eucalyptus and calming lavender for a wonderful treatment. The eucalyptus will help to clear up your congestion while the lavender will help to soothe you before slipping into bed.
