It's no surprise that shower jellies have become HUGELY popular - these things are a ton of jiggly-wiggly-wobbly fun! They are like a magical cross between shower gel and a solid bar of soap - a surefire way to get clean and have fun at the same time.
Best of all, they are very very easy to make and customize to your preference! Make them clear and gently scented, or go all out with body-safe colors, sparkles, and a healthy dose of your favorite essential oils.
Bath time for the kiddies will become a barrel of laughs with these things slip-sliding around.
What you'll need:
- 6 packets of Knox Unflavored gelatin (for an animal-friendly/vegan jelly use 5 tsp. powdered Agar-Agar or 2 packets Natural Desserts Unsweetened Jel Mix)
- 2 1/4 cups boiling water
- 1.5 cups shower gel
- 8 -10 drops essential oil
- 4-6 drops food coloring
- 3 tsp salt
- Silicone mold
In a measuring cup, mix in the gelatin powder and water.
Stir until the gelatin powder is completely dissolved.
Add the shower gel to the gelatin mixture.
Stir until thoroughly combined.
Add an essential oil of your choice and/or a few drops of food coloring, if desired. Mix well.
Mix in the salt.
Pour the mixture into the silicon mold.
If bubbles appear on the top of the liquid, spray with rubbing alcohol.
Put the mold in the refrigerator. Let it cool in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours, or until firm.
