Pour the gelatin powder into a small saucepan. Pour 1 cup of cold filtered water into the pan with the gelatin, and whisk until it's mostly dissolved. Place the saucepan on the stove over medium heat, and stir until the gelatin is totally dissolved.
Remove the pan from the heat, then add ½ cup of body wash to the pan.
Pour in 10 drops of lavender essential oil.
Lay your silicone molds face down in a shallow dish for support, and pour the mixture from the pot into the molds until they are almost full. If you find that there are bubbles floating on top of your full silicone molds, you can spray a small amount of rubbing alcohol over them to eliminate them.
Add 1-2 drops of soap colorant or food coloring to each mold, and use a popsicle stick or other small item to stir the bath jelly solution until it's well combined.
Put the silicone molds in the freezer for 15 minutes, then transfer them to the refrigerator until they're solidified. It's usually about 3 hours or overnight is fine. Remove the shower jellies gently from the silicone molds, then use them each time you take a shower like you would a bar of soap.
Keep these tips in mind when using jelly soaps
Keep in mind that these shower jellies do look like tasty treats. Keep them away from small children who tend to put things in their mouth and supervise all children well.
Shower jellies may be slick when used in the shower so use caution.
For freshness, you can store your shower jellies in an air-tight container in the fridge until you're ready to use them.
