  • Preheat oven to 350°F and bake the molds for 15-20 minutes. Remove and let cool completely. The tablets will continue drying as they cool.
  • Sprinkle the tablets with the essential oils and allow to soak in. Transfer to a jar and store until ready to use. If using silicone molds, the tablets will be easier to pop out.

Alternatively, combine the lavender, chamomile and baking soda. Stir in 10-20 drops each of the essential oils. Do not add water. Transfer the dry mix to an airtight jar and sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of the powder on the bottom of the shower and turn on the hot water. Can also be added to bath water.
