Using Vintage Butter Molds to Make Decongestant Shower Melts

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I suffer from chronic sinus congestion and headaches. And for my fellow sufferers, I feel your pain- literally! I’m always on the hunt for new and better ways to relieve the pressure and pain. I love to use the steam of a hot shower to open everything up, sometimes with the help of decongestant shower melts.
