There are MANY different Lush shower jelly recipes on the Internet, and, while they’re all good, they won’t all be the exact same. The one we’re doing today, for example, is a little different than the one we’ve done before – DIY Lush shower jelly recipe.

In the previous build, we made our own body wash, and so, there were a lot more ingredients, but this time we’re going to simplify it and use only a few ingredients!

You’ll Need:

  • 1 package gelatin (1 oz)
  • 2/3 cup hot water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup body wash or bubble bath (clear, not creamy)
  • food coloring – optional
  • essential oils – optional


  1. Bring 2/3 cup of water to an almost boiling point.
  2. Pour the hot water over your gelatin and the salt and stir really well to dissolve.
  3. Let cool for a few minutes, and add in your body wash or bubble bath.
  4. Add in a few drops of food coloring and your favorite essential oil, if using.
  5. Pour the mixture into your favorite molds, ice cube trays, or really any container you may have laying around!
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (overnight is usually best).
  7. Once the jellies have formed, they can now be popped out of their molds and used in the shower!

A few notes…

You can pour the jelly mixture into a mason jar and have them solidify like that. Once solidified, simply take the mold out and cut into smaller pieces.

Store your cut jellies in a jar or container in the shower or in the refrigerator if you live in a warmer climate.
