DIY Bubble Bath for Kids NO Harmful Chemicals
I’ve decided to make my own home and body remedies. There have been a few flops, but I try again. This time, there’s no messing up. I believe I’ve perfected the best bubble bath for my little one. It’s my DIY Bubble Bath for Kids with NO Harmful Chemicals Added…the Ology Way!
Castile soaps don’t make lots of bubbles, and so that’s where a shampoo comes in. A moisturizing shampoo with no added harsh ingredients is a no-brainer to use in your homemade bubble recipe.
You can use Dr. Bronners castile soap for this DIY and any shampoo
DIY Bubble Bath for Kids
Items You’ll Need:
- 1 cup Lavender Pure Castile Soap
- 1/2 cup Moisturizing Shampoo (use one with no harmful chemicals)
- One tbs Vegetable Glycerin – (a little expensive, but you don’t need a lot)*
- Six drops or more of Lavender Essential Oil or another 100% pure EO, such as the ones mentioned below.
- Glass bottle (I used a container with a pump, but you don’t have to)
*Vegetable Glycerin is a natural emollient and skin soother. It attracts moisture to the surface, leaving it soft and supple after bathing in it.
Certain essential oils all have antibacterial properties, which are excellent for cleansing—many help to calm and promote restful sleep. Safe, non-irritating essential oils that you can add to your homemade recipe for kids include chamomile, lavender, and neroli (sweet & spicy; comes from the flowers of the bitter orange tree).
Mix all ingredients in the glass bottle. Using a funnel might be less messy.
Here’s a great tip: When cleaning out the measuring cup that held the first three ingredients, go ahead and add some water to the container, swish it around and pour it into your mixture!
Okay, moms, this is a bubble bath you too can enjoy. Hop on in and relax. Please know that the bubbles are plenty at first, but will dissipate quite a bit before bath time ends. Brody doesn’t mind, and I bet yours won’t either. Enjoy!
