DIY: Homemade Bubble Bath!

Today we've got a fun little post from Apartment Therapy for all you people out there with kids or those who find (aka make) the time to soak in a bubble bath from time to time.

If you don't want to go out and splurge on good ol' Mr. Bubble or just like the thought of experimenting with your own suds, we've got the recipe below. Let us know what you think, and if you've got any other ideas to throw in the tub, be sure to leave a comment!

What You Need

4 cups of Water
4 oz Castille Soap (like Dr. Bronner's which you can buy scented or unscented and it's totally green and can be used for cleaning around the house and your body)
3 oz of either Glycerin* or Coconut Oil (both lather well and are skin softeners)
Essential Oil (like Lavender or Eucalyptus)
Container for your concoction (non glass is best for near the bath)
Bath Tub

*Glycerin is any pure soap, normally a transparent bar, made without synthetic detergents. You can buy it online or sometimes at the drugstore.


1. Mix water with castille and glycerin or coconut oil.

2. Add 4-5 drops of your choice of essential oil.

3. Mix well.

4. Pour your bubble bath into the container. It should keep for quite a while.

5. Fill bathtub with water and pour in a couple of ounces of bubble bath.

6. Take a deep breath and soak.
