When I started experimenting with homemade bath, beauty, and cleaning products, I promised to share the good, the bad, and the ugly. This one was definitely ugly. Such a waste of good, organic ingredients. 😦
Zander loves bubble baths, so yesterday, he and I decided to make our own. He chose the scents (orange and rosemary), and we even doubled the recipe to make a larger batch. I had such high hopes for this recipe, which I found on the DoTerra blog, but at the end of the day, it was very disappointing.
Don’t get me wrong; I wasn’t expecting the mountains of bubbles that you get from chemical-laden store-bought products. I knew to expect smaller bubbles that would not last as long. However, this “bubble bath” did absolutely nothing other than turn Zander’s bathwater a milky white color. There was barely even any foam on the surface while I squirted the bubble bath under running water.
So I’m sharing this recipe as a DO NOT TRY and hoping that maybe someone out there will be able to recommend a tried and true recipe that will redeem our faith in homemade bubble bath.
Here is the FAILING recipe:
1 cup unscented castille soap
1/2 cup vegetable glycerin
2 Tbsp water
15 drops of your favorite essential oil
Coming soon… a really great recipe for homemade vegan lip balm! 🙂
