Homemade Bubble Bath
Did you know most store-bought bubble bath products are loaded with toxic chemicals? Here's a DIY Homemade Bubble Bath recipe - it's just 4 ingredients.
Servings: 8 uses
In a pint-sized pump bottle, add castile soap, vegetable glycerin, essential oils and aloe vera gel.
Replace lid securely and shake vigorously for a few seconds to mix well.
Use 2-3 tbsp in a bath and agitate the water with your hands to create bubbles. Add more bubble bath as needed.
Store for up to 3-6 months.
Note: If you have hard water, you may not get as many bubbles. Here are 3 options to increase the foam and suds naturally:
- You could increase the vegetable glycerin in this recipe to 1/2 cup (so add another 1/4 cup of glycerin). Or if you want to do a spot test first - do a 2:1 ratio of liquid Castile soap and vegetable glycerin. Mix 2 tbsp of liquid Castile soap and 1 tbsp of vegetable glycerin, and add to the running water of the bath. Agitate to see if you get more suds and foam. If it works well, then make a bigger batch and add the essential oils.
- You could also try an egg white. Beat 1 egg white and pour it into the bath under the running water along with the 2-3 tbsp of this bubble bath. The egg white helps to create more foam.
- Now if you don't want to add an egg white or more vegetable glycerin, the other option is opt for a natural bath gel instead of using liquid Castile soap. I love the Young Living bath gel base and use it along with essential oils to make a personalized scent, like Lavender + Stress Away blends. I skip the liquid Castile soap, vegetable glycerin, and aloe vera gel and just use the bath gel base and essential oils. Simple and it suds up so well.
