Here is what you will need to make your own Vapor Rub Shower Cubes:

– Ice cube tray (I have a mini cube tray…you can snag your own via Amazon)

– 3 tablespoons of vapor rub (Maty’s makes a petroleum free, plant based variety with eucalyptus, peppermint, and wintergreen.

– 1 cup of corn starch
– 5 tablespoons of water
– Mixing bowl
– Blue and green food coloring (optional)

Once you have your supplies, you are ready to roll. As you can see, chances are you already have these items in your home.

1. Place the vapor rub and corn starch in a bowl. Start to stir.

The vapor rub will need some time to warm up before it meshes well into the corn starch. Just keep it moving and it will start to break down.

2. Add in the two tablespoons of water. Continue to mix. You want a thick paste to form. If the mixture needs more water, in a tablespoon at a time.

You don’t want too much water and this is a good way to control how much you add.

3. You will now have this perfect paste that smells amazing. Go ahead and add a drop of both green and blue food coloring. Mix well. This step is optional of course and just adds to the appearance.

4. Take the paste and press it into your ice cube tray. Remember you can find a small one like we used here, or a regular sized one if you wish for larger cubes.

Pack it in well. Place in the freezer for two hours to help solidify them quickly.

Your Vapor Rub Shower Cubes will solidify and firm up making them ready for use. Just pop one out and place it on the floor of the shower before you hop in.

The warm water will break it down and in no time the vapors will do their thing.

When you aren’t using the cubes, you can freeze them or place them in an air tight container. This recipe made about 2 dozen mini cubes for me, or would make about 1 dozen regular sized cubes. Not bad!
