DIY Calming Vegan Organic Jelly Soaps


Arts and Crafts / Activities 50 Views

This DIY bath Jelly recipe is like a Lush Dupe. This recipe will show you how to make your own bath jelly or jellies. This recipe is for a bath soap that is the texture of jelly. It is NOT edible.

These handmade Jelly soaps are like washing with Jello, they are wiggly and wobbly and the kids will hopefully love to wash with them. Any incentive to get them in the shower right?

As you are working with gelatin which sets quickly, make sure you have everything set up before you start, including your soap molds.

I have also made this jelly soap in a large container and then cut it up and popped it into a jar with a spoon and the kids just spooned it on. 

The base for this soap is liquid soap, If you are planning on adding your own scents like we have done below (chamomile and lavender)then make sure your base soap is unscented.

If your mix is not setting, then re-heat and add more gelatin.
