Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Measure 2 cups baking soda and pour into a mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup water to the baking soda. Mix thoroughly. Ensure the texture of the mixture is similar to wet sand.
Spoon the mixture into the silicon molds, or you could use paper cupcake liners. Place the molds/liners onto a baking tray or into cupcake pan.
Place the pan onto the middle oven rack, and allow the tablets to bake for 15 to 17 minutes.
Add 5 to 6 drops of each oil type to the tablets.
Once the tablets have completely cooled, remove them from the molds.
While showering, place 1 to 2 tablets on the floor of your tub, and allow warm water to melt them and release the vapor.
If you're planning on gifting the tablets, pop the tablets into a mason jar and add some decorative touches, and you're ready to hand them off as gifts to loved ones!
