Shower Jelly is one of the Lush Bath Products that many DIYer's have fun duplicating. With the consistency of hard jello, this is one of our all time favorite homemade recipes! (especially for the kids!)
With just a few simple ingredients such as aromatherapy essential oils and a nice castile soap, this is a great, homemade copycat recipe!
True, it's like showering with slippery, sudsy jello... but it's worth trying. You can make this product super cheap and it's a great easy homemade gift idea for kids. You can just use inexpensive, scented shampoo like Suave, and some simple fragrances from a local hobby store, or use a nice castile soap and one of your favorite essential oils recipes!
The official Lush Shower Jellies are packaged in jelly jars so you can scoop out the portions that you like. I used a small silicone brownie pan to keep them individualized! Either way, it's a kick!

Some fun aromatherapy essential oil combinations are:
lavender+lemon essential oils=fight depression
melaleuca+lavender essential oils=relax
peppermint +wild orange essential oils=invigorated
I use colored micas meant for soaps and that's what I would recommend if it's available. If all you have is food coloring, that will work too.
After your shower jellies have hardened go jump in the shower and try them out! They will stay longer and fresher if kept in a cool, dry place.
I don't store them in the shower as I don't think that water seeping into the jar would be very helpful!

I've used these a few times now and they're great fun! Super sudsy in the bathtub and even my husband cracks a smile when he uses them!
For a fun Valentine Gifts Idea try adding some sweet scents and some sparkly, body-safe glitter! Perfect for your special Valentine!
