Here is what you will need to make your own Vapor Rub Shower Cubes:
Ice cube tray (I have a mini cube tray…you can snag your own for around $5 right here!)
3 tablespoons of vapor rub (Maty’s makes a petroleum free, plant based variety with eucalyptus, peppermint, and wintergreen found here for around $5. It is amazing, it is safe for use with children, and I highly suggest it! Find out more about whole ingredients and plant based diets here!)
1 cup of corn starch
5 tablespoons of water
Blue and green food coloring (optional)
Once you have your supplies, you are ready to roll. As you can see, chances are you already have these items in your home. Oh and when you are done with this recipe.
1. Place the vapor rub and corn starch in a bowl. Start to stir. The vapor rub will need some time to warm up before it meshes well into the corn starch. Just keep it moving and it will start to break down.
2. Add in the two tablespoons of water. Continue to mix. You want a thick paste to form. If the mixture needs more water, in a tablespoon at a time.
3. You will now have this perfect paste that smells amazing. Go ahead and add a drop of both green and blue food coloring. Mix well. This step is optional of course and just adds to the appearance.
Your Vapor Rub Shower Cubes will solidify and firm up making them ready for use. Just pop one out and place it on the floor of the shower before you hop in. The warm water will break it down and in no time the vapors will do their thing.
