Make Your Own Natural Bubble Bath for Kids
The organic products mentioned above cost between $7 and $14 dollars for a bottle, with Rainbow Bubble Bath being the least expensive. If you want to save money, or simply to go even more natural, try making your own children's organic bubble bath. This recipe is based on a recipe found on the eco blog, The Green Parent. Start with:
- 1 cup liquid castile soap
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon glycerin
- 6 drops essential oil of choice
Mix this solution together and store in a lidded plastic or glass bottle. Try to reuse a container that was already used instead of buying a new one. Castile soap is made from natural, plant-based oils such as olive, coconut, and jojoba. Glycerin is a natural byproduct of the soap making process. It acts to attract moisture to the skin, leaving the skin soft and supple after bathing in it. You can add essential oils for an added benefit if you like. Essential oils all have antibacterial properties, which is great for cleansing. Many help to calm and promote restful sleep. Safe, non-irritating essential oils that you can add to your homemade recipe for kids include chamomile, lavender, and neroli.
As more and more parents today are interested in natural products for their children, there are plenty of great kids organic bubble bath brands on the market. Head over to your local health food store and try one out, or make your own using this simple, inexpensive recipe. You and your children will love the results.
