|Cocoa Bubble Bath by Fran W|
This quick and easy recipe will not only make a fun bubble bath but it can be used as a body wash as well!
To make your own cocoa-scented bubble bath or body wash, you will need…
1c Unscented baby soap (liquid) or 1/2c liquid Castile soap
1/8c Cocoa power
1 Vitamin E capsule and a pin (optional)
1/2 – 3/4c Water
Bowl for mixing
A bottle that can hold 2 cups of liquid (a recycled shampoo bottle will work)
What to do…
Mix a 1/2 cup of water with cocoa powder, stir with a spoon until the powder dissolves, and set it aside.
Pour the Baby or Castile soap into a bottle, then add the glycerin and water/cocoa mixture. Remove the funnel, pop open the vitamin E capsule (you can use a pin to do this), and squeeze the contents into the bottle and discard capsule. Add the rest of the water to the bottle, close, and shake well.
How to use…
To use as a bubble bath, shake well then pour a couple of tablespoons or so of the mixture into running water.
To use as a body wash, shake well then put a small amount of liquid on a puff or sponge, squeeze until foamy and wash as usual.
Chocolate Covered Berry: Instead of using baby soap, use strawberry or raspberry shampoo as the main soap base.
Chocolate-Mint: Castile soap comes in peppermint and can be used as the soap base. Mint essential oil can also be added to unscented shampoo.
Chocolate-Coconut: Add a tablespoon or two of coconut oil or a few drops of essential oil to the mixture.
Try some other essential oils such as orange, vanilla, cherry, or another favorite scent.
Make a gift basket: An inexpensive gift basket can be made up for birthdays, holidays, or just because!
