Homemade Lush Shower Jelly
The shower jelly will form a nice solid form so that when you go to the shower, you lather it up like you would a bar of soap. I always use a nice smelling body wash. Depending on the season will depend on the scent. I like to reach for a floral or even coconut scented wash during the warmer months of the year, and then for like peppermint or even a coffee scented in the colder months. My girls and I make these shower jellies all year round. I have also made them and given to friends and family for their birthdays and even holidays.
How To Make Shower Jellies
In a bowl, you add in your gelatin while you slowly stir in the boiling hot water. Stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Then you grab your body wash and mix it in.
Grab your food coloring and mix in around 5 to 10 drops depending on how bold you want the color to be. Then pour the mixture into the molds and let them set up.
