Bubble Bath Jelly Cubes
SpaFlyer by SpaIndex.com: Guide to Spas and Spa Lifestyle Daily
Bath jams and jellies are a fun way to make soft, wiggly cubes of bubble bath, particularly appealing to children
For Scoopable Jar Jelly:
- 1 packet of unflavored gelatin (or 1 tablespoon from your bulk can)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup liquid soap (unscented Dr. Bonner’s works great)
- 3/4 cup boiling hot water
- Food coloring
- Fragrance oil or essential oil of your choice
- Plastic storage jar with lid
For Firm Jelly Cubes
- 3 packets of unflavored gelatin (or 3 tablespoon from your bulk can), in place of the 1 packet specified for soft jelly
Now Do This
- Empty the packet(s) or measure gelatin into a bowl and set aside.
- Carefully pour the boiling hot water over the gelatin powder.
- Let the gelatin dissolve completely.
- Add the liquid soap to the gelatin.
- Add 2 to 3 drops of food coloring, and 4-5 drops of fragrance or essential oil.
- Stir gently so as not to aerate too much.
- Add any remaining ingredients if desired, such as glitter, flower petals, or herbs — or for children — a tiny plastic toy or treat to encourage bathtime, being careful to monitor that they toys are not swallowed or stuck up the nose.
- For scoopable jelly, pour the jelly mix into a clean bowl or jar-type storage container and allow to set for several hours in your refrigerator.
- To use, scoop a small amount into the bath under running water, and return balance to refrigerator.
- For firm jelly, pour the jelly mix into a clean FLAT storage container (such as a casserole dish, brownie dish, etc), and allow to set overnight in the refrigerator.
- When firm, slice into cubes and keep cubes in a jar or container in the fridge.
- Add one or two cubes to bath water.
