DIY Shower Jellies

Inspired by the bath jellies I saw at the Lush counter, I decided to look up a DIY recipe and make my own. So here is my version of bath jellies with ingredients that I easily found at my local super market.

The procedure is as simple as 1,2 and 3!

1. Melt one sachet of gelatin in 240ml of hot, distilled water. Ensure the gelatin dissolves completely and let it cool till it is lukewarm.

2. Then add 100 to 150 ml of shower gel to the mixture. You can use any shower gel. Mix well.

3. Pour the mixture into a mold of your choice and allow it to set in your refrigerator – I used small heart shaped molds. Once set, the soap can be unmolded and stored in a glass or plastic container.

I keep my little heart jellies in the fridge and help myself to one when I want to take a shower. Because of the heat in Bangalore, they usually melt when I keep them out of my refrigerator. 😦

I am still looking for a recipe that gives me jellies I don’t have to store in the fridge. If you know of a DIY, I would love if you could share the web link with me.

The DIY that inspired my DIY

 

If you haven’t tried making bath jellies, you should give this one a try. It is so much fun to make and use!

      The nice thing about these jellies is that you can use them under the shower. One lil heart is enough. You can squish it with your loofah and u have your jelly ready for the shower.
      Let me know if you try this 🙂

    Ooooo I love it! I have always wanted to try a Shower Jelly from Lush I just didn’t feel like they were as worth the price tag as some of the other products. I will definitely be trying this out at some point though because those look like fun 🙂

    In Italy it’s quite difficult to find powder of gelatine, I found only sheets of gelatine, that is the same thing. This evening I’ll try! I’ve seen other videos and most of them join also a spoon of salt…did u use it?

      I am so excited to know you are trying this. I did not use salt but I guess you can 🙂
      Let me know how they turn out xx
