    • Surprise Bubble Bath Jars

      "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!

      If you lose the bag and use sawdust or recycled newspaper litter (yesterdays news) than you create an ecofriendly, combustable travel potty.
