Hi Everyone! Easter, Mother’s Day, and Spring is coming so I wanted to give you all a new and refreshing Do It Yourself project. I will be showing you how to make Bath Jellies inspire by Lush! This is basically a body wash but in jelly form. It looks like tasty Jello but it’s totally non edible, so no tasting it =) It makes taking a bath or shower super fun and like playing with jello! You can also store the jellies into jars and gift them for baby showers or pretty much any occasion. Let’s get started shall we?

What you will need:
Fun jars or containers for storing the jelly soap
Body wash, color or scented in fine. You will not need to add extra fragrance or color if you use a color and scented body wash
Gelatin If you are a vegan- Agar or Konnyaku jelly powder may work
Natural oil (optional) Oils like jojoba or coconut can provide extra moisture
Food colors (optional) You will not need this is you’re using colored body wash
Make sure to follow the measure in the instruction on your gelatin package. Mine’s says, each package is equvilant to 1 cup water. Therefore I will be making 4 cups water. This is an optional step. Add in a few drops of any natural oils. Natural oils will reduce the amount of bubbles your soap will produce, I like the feeling I get after using it. Now you can pour your soap. I use 2 ounce per cup of water. However you can use more if you like. Mix well, bring the water to a boil and then turn off your stove. Pour the gelatin packages into a bowl, then pour in the hot soapy mix. Stir everything together. I like to create different color jellies so I prepared many bowls. I would pour one package of gelatin in each followed by 1 hot cup of water. Let the jelly soap mix cool for at least 1 hour. Once the mixes are cool, I like to scoop out the jelly into the jars. By scooping it, it creates texture and also reflects the light in a pretty neat way. You can also use cookie cutters to make fun and cute shapes! That’s all to it! It’s pretty straight forward like cooking jello. Make sure the little ones know this is NOT food. Be careful when giving it to children!
Enjoy your Bath Jellies!!!
