      "Surprise" Bubble Bath Jelly Jars


      1 packet Unflavored Gelatin
      3/4 cup Water (Boiling)
      1/2 cup Clear Liquid Soap or Bubble Bath
      Essential Oils - (Not Fragrance Oils which irritate the skin)
      Food Coloring - optional (a few drops will not stain your tub).
      Small objects (silk flowers, toys, small plastic figures, etc)
      Clear container with lid: Check your local dollar-store, yard-sale, garage sale.


      Combine Gelatin and Hot water in a small bowl, stirring until completely dissolved, gradually add in the liquid soap & 10 drops of whatever Essential oil you choose. To avoid foamy, do not overmix.


      Gently pour mix into a clean, clear container. Carefully place your objects inside the jelly, and continue to add mixture until jar is full.


      Allow to set in the Fridge for 3-5 hours.


      To use: scoop out about 2 T of jelly and drop under warm running water to dissolve. (In the Bath)


      Decorate the jar with raffia, a cute card, anything your heart desires. This makes a lovely addition to a gift basket.



      Various Ideas:

      * Try adding fish for a lovely aquarium bath gel.
      * Create a deep blue and add glow in the dark stars for a children's bath that's sure to please
      * Propose to your Sweetie by suspending a ring
      * For Valentines, add heart confetti & a couple drops of red food coloring the possibilities are endless!

      One ugly headboard+one beat-up table+ an amazing carpenter with vision (with a little help from his side kick, me) = a really pretty creation just for my mom's birthday :-)

      Re: improve a cake mix ?

      I love all these suggestions! The Banana really sounds delicious. I've heard about the applesauce thing but I have never tried it yet. I am definitely going to try it this holiday season even if it's...

      Soak orange peels in vinegar for two weeks in a sealed mason jar or old mayonaise jar. Then pour the vinegar into a spray bottle. Use for cleaning or bug spray. This is great for ants!

      I like to substitute the Oil with applesauce they change over in equal parts on the measurements & add a small box of pudding mix into the batter.
