How to make your own Bubble Bath

How to make your own Bubble Bath

It really is very simple. In this recipe, you will use natural ingredients to create your own bubble bath.

What you need

2 cups of Soap flakes or grated soap
1 gallon (4 litres) of water
1/4 cup of glycerin
2 cups of Shampoo or dish washing detergent
Scented oils of your choice


Mix the soap flakes with the water.

Add 2 tbs of glycerin into a saucepan and place on a low heat.

Stir occasionally until the soap has dissolved.

In a large bowl, add about 2 cups of this mixture to the rest of the glycerin and shampoo.

Add a few drops of your scented oil.

Put it all into a nice storage container.

To use: Add 1/2 cup to your running bath water.


  1. i think this idea is a great thing to do for my friend

  2. nice idea but won’t the dishwashing detergent dry your skin?

    you wear gloves while using dishwashing detergent to prevent it from drying out your skin..

  3. Glycerin is very cheap and easy, ask your local chemist- they all stock it in some obscure corner. You do have to ask as it’s not normal in plain sight but in the darkest corner to preserve the contents but it’s there and doesn’t need a prescribtion.
    nor does witchhazel which is great for oily skin, especially used in place of body spray in summer!

  4. What is the substitute for glycerin? I do not have any on hand. Otherwise very good and fun.
