I was so excited when Fresh & Pure and Nourish & Glow arrived in my mailbox! Written by Jules Aron, vegan cheese connoisseur and Zen Maven, these two books are filled with the most divine self-care recipes that anyone can make.

It’s no secret I’m a fan of all things self-care, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to make and share some of her gorgeous recipes, starting with her You’re the Bomb Aromatherapy Shower Tablets. These tablets are so fun and easy to make, and they’re completely customizable!

AROMATHERAPY SHOWER TABLETS

Get ready to up your shower-game a few notches because these shower tablets out of Fresh & Pure are so simple to make! They can be easily customized with CPTG® essential oils to support your self-care needs. Check out the ones I made below using rosemary, eucalyptus, lavender, and lemon essential oils as per Jules’ suggestion in Fresh & Pure.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Makes four tablets

1 cup baking soda
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
1/3 cup water
5 drops eucalyptus essential oil
5 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops rosemary essential oil
5 drops lemon essential oil
silicone ice molds

aromatherapy shower tablets

Simply combine the baking soda and the arrowroot powder, and then slowly add in water. Pour into silicone molds and allow mixture to rest overnight. Add in the essential oils of your choice.

To use in the shower: place one tablet away from the stream of water and enjoy the beautiful benefits of aromatherapy.

Store in air-tight container for up to six months.

Carley Schweet once worked in the corporate fashion world of New York City, spending her workdays people pleasing and her nights and weekends reeling with sleepless anxiety.

Over time, she realized her stress arose from being afraid to say No —whether out of reluctance to hurt others’ feelings or due to her crippling anxiety and lack of self-care. She then quit her corporate job and graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York. Today, she is a self-care coach and author of the book Boundaries with Soul.
