DIY Essential Oil Jelly Soaps

2 packets unflavored gelatin powder
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup body wash – I use doTERRA SPA Refreshing Body Wash
3-5 drops Essential Oil (Optional)
Natural colorant (Optional)
Skin-safe glitter (Optional)


  1. Put unflavored gelatin powder in a mixing bowl, then pour water over the gelatin and stir.
  2. Add your Body Wash and essential oils. Mix well until combined.
  3. Separate mixture into different containers, then add desired coloring to each. If you want them all to be the same color, you can add the colorant directly to the mixture.
  4. Put skin-safe glitter in silicon molds, then pour mixture on top.
  5. Place in refrigerator until firm.
  6. Store in refrigerator before and after each use.

Tip: You can use any of your favourite essential oils in this recipe. Some ideas are Bergamot, Grapefruit, or Wild Orange.
