Non-Toxic Bubbles—With a Secret Ingedient! And 29 MORE Wonderful Recipes to Detox Your Home
If you’ve found this post, chances are you are already on the path to detoxifying your home. I am so happy to be a part of “Detox Your Home Blogger Series” and I hop you’ve already read “Homemade fabric softener/dryer sheets” from Rebecca. The ingredient list in commercial bubbles is lengthy. Too lengthy for my tastes. And the ingredients are unpronounceable and questionable. Remember that our children are putting these bubble wands to their mouth and, as you know if you’re around kids often enough, a fair amount of the liquid will be ingested in just one bubble-blowing session…what about what they’re taking in during the whole summer?!?
So I thought, why not just make my own so I know exactly what is in it? Bonus–my son get’s to help make his own bubbles!
- 1/2 c. *distilled water
- 1/4 c. unscented dish soap
- 1 t. glycerin (available at most pharmacy/drug stores, I purchased online HERE)
- 10-15 drops of a kid-friendly essential oil (I use Young Living Brand, and my son’s favorite is lavender or peppermint)
- a few drops of natural food coloring (get HERE) optional
Mix together and get to bubble blowing!
*The distilled water REALLY does make a difference. I tried this recipe with tap water and the bubbles had no staying power! I did a little research and found out salt and minerals in tap water can disrupt the soap molecules!
