Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil
  2. 2 teaspoons witch hazel
  3. 30 drops eucalyptus essential oil
  4. 20 drops peppermint essential oil
  5. 10 drops rosemary essential oil
  6. 1/2 cup baking soda
  7. 1/4 cup citric acid
  8. 3 tablespoons fine sea salt
  9. 3 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  10. 1 teaspoon beet powder
  11. 1/2 teaspoon spirulina powder
  1. Special tools: snowflake molds

Directions

  1. Wash and thoroughly dry a snowflake soap/chocolate mold and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix the almond oil, witch hazel, and essential oils.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the baking soda, citric acid, sea salt, arrowroot powder, beet powder, and spirulina powder. Break up any lumps with your fingers. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix with your hands until the liquid is evenly distributed; it should look like wet sand.
  4. Place 1/4 cup of the mixture inside each snowflake cavity, pressing down firmly. Transfer the molds into the freezer for 30 minutes to set. Once frozen, remove from the molds and allow them to air-dry overnight before packing them up. Place on the shower drain to breathe easier!
