Wednesday was National Bubble Bath day, and when I mentioned my homemade bubble bath I had some people ask how it was made, so I thought I’d share the super simple directions here. 

I first found this recipe on It has clean ingredients free of crazy chemicals–Comfrey from my book Last Chance would totally approve. =)

Yield: About 5 cups
Active Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Difficulty: Easy

This bubble bath is free of the crazy chemicals that fill so many of our beauty and pampering products and can be scented however you like. I made a big batch of this to give as Christmas gifts, but I made sure to keep some back for myself.


  • 4 Cups of distilled water
  • 4 oz castille soap
  • 3 oz glycerine or coconut oil
  • Scent. I made a quadruple batch and used 10 drops each of White Angelica, Peace and Calming, and Patchouli essential oils. It gave it a clean, slightly floral scent that is very calming.


  • Glass measuring cup with a spout
  • Spoon
  • Bottle or jar to put it in


  1. Mix the ingredients and pour into a bottle of your choice. You may want to stick to plastic since it'll be around the tub.
