DIY Shower Jellies OR How To Make Your Own Homemade Body Wash!
My daughter is very creative. I can read or watch someone do a DIY or crafty thing and still not be able to wrap my head around it. I have no idea how my DD became so crafty!
She loves to be crafty at my house… I think I have more room since all 4 kids moved out. Recently she came over with supplies in hand and spent an afternoon DIY’ing in my kitchen. I took pics so I could share them with you.

Here’s what you’ll need – everything can be purchased at your grocery store or even at your local Dollar Tree:
3/4 cup boiling water
1/4 tsp Salt
1 envelope Gelatin
1/4 cup Moisturizing Cream Body Wash (or unscented Dove body wash)
1/4 cup Your favorite Scented Shower Gel
In your mixing bowl add 3/4 cups boiling water (we used a tea kettle) and 1 envelope of Gelatin, stir constantly until completely dissolved.
Mix in 1/4 cup Moisturizing Cream Body Wash (or unscented Dove body wash)
and 1/4 cup Your favorite Scented Shower Gel
Begin adding food coloring
Add just a little at a time until you get the desired color
Add 1/4 tsp salt and mix thoroughly.
Add to molds, if there are bubbles you can use a spray bottle of 1/2 water and 1/2 alcohol. Just a squirt or two will pop the bubbles.
Once you have filled up your molds, just pop them in the fridge for an hour or so and then they are ready!
You can use them for washing your hands or in the shower. If you live in a warmer climate like Texas, I would keep them in the fridge – they can melt on a hot day. Of course if that happens you can just pop them back in the fridge for a bit and they’ll be as good as new!
That’s it, super fun and easy! Any fun ideas brewing in your world? Share it with us in the comments below!
