During Cold/Flu season, these Homemade Vapor Rub Shower Melts will be a life saver!

Homemade Vapor Rub Shower Melts

This cold/flu season has been seriously brutal! Sometimes, it seems like its not who is going to be sick– but how often are they going to be sick! It is nice to keep this vicks shower soothers on hand to help ease the symptoms of flu season.

Just add one Vicks Shower Melt to the bottom of your kids shower and the steam mixed with the Vapor Rub will give them relief from their symptoms.

This will help them clear their sinuses and breath better. I love warm showers when I’m not feeling good and these shower cubes make them smell great and feel great, too!

This is perfect for your kids when they are feeling cold symptoms. My 6 year old daughter loves being able to see the Shower Melt dissolve in the water!

Vicks and Cornstarch makes a colorless mixture– but you can add a color tablet to make these Vapor Shower Melts vibrant and fun!

The color tablets are yellow, blue or red. Let your children choose their favorite color or make some of each color of vicks vapor rub shower tablets.

During Flu/Cold season– it is important to make sure you are drinking lots of water to stay hydrated and get lots of rest! Our kids love mixing a stick of CoreAO into their water to also help shorten the symptoms of cold season. If your kid gets bored while they are recovering– make them up a fun batch of glitter slime or Silky playdoh!
