Bath Time Fun

Donna at Eden's Scents
Note: Our Craft Writer will not be with us for awhile. So, in an effort to have some fun craft projects, I will be sharing different ideas with you. Have Fun!
Jelly Bubble Bath


Packet unflavored Gelatin-knox

3/4 Cup water

1/2 Cup clear liquid soap or bubble bath

Fragrance oils

Food Coloring (optional)


Dissolve the gelatin in water and soap until all of the "grains" are gone.

Stir in a small amount of fragrance oil (about 1/2 tsp) and three drops of food coloring.

You can pour this into Jello Jiggler molds or ice trays. Once they have jelled, pour into zip lock bags or put into plastic jars with lids.

Hint: Be sure to seal as these will dry out, like Jello does.

Fizzy Bath Bombs


1 cup Baking soda (Bicarbonate of Soda)
1/2 cup Cornstarch
1/2 cup Citric Acid (I use Fruit Fresh)

Sift dry ingredients until you get a nice, smooth blend.

2 1/2 Tablespoon Sunflower oil (or your preferred substitute)
2 Teaspoon fragrance oil.
5 Drops food coloring.
3/4 Teaspoon distilled water.
Sprayer bottle of Witch Hazel.

Combine wet ingredients and mix well


Drizzle (Do NOT pour) wet ingredients into the dry ones and blend well. Spritz with witch hazel until moist enough to clump together if you pinch some in your hand, but not until fizzing. Pack tightly into molds, dixie cups, mold into balls in your hands, etc. Let dry overnight. When dry and hard, wrap tightly in cellophane or keep in an air/watertight container. To use, drop one or two in a bathtub of warm water.

hint: I mold mine into small plastic easter eggs.
