DIY Shower Jellies



I’m sure by now you guys have heard of Lush – home of all things homemade cosmetics and the epic bath bombs. If yo’re anything like me their products are special treats for when you have a little bit of extra money. So today I have an easy way to get one of my favorite products at home the diy way – DIY shower jellies.

What are shower jellies you ask? Solidified versions of shower gel basically. You can use them as hand soap or like regular shower gel.


Here’s what you’ll need

  • 1c boiling water
  • 1 packet of plain gelatin
  • 1/2c body wash – gel works better than cream
  • soap colorant or food coloring – if you’re body wash is clear or white
  • spoon, fork, pot holders, microwave, fridge
  • container(s) to serve as mold for jellies – like an ice cube tray
  • optional: body-safe essential oils if your body wash isn’t scented

To Do:
  • Add gelatin powder and body wash to 1c of boiling water. Add as much colorant as desired if your body wash isn’t tinted.
  • Mix well and pour into container of choice.
  • Allow to cool and form into jellies completely. This may take a few hours. Remove from mold and use or store in a cool, dry place (mine go in the fridge)


All done! Would you ever make your own shower jellies?
