A simple bubble bath can be made by mixing one egg white, a tablespoon of honey and 1/2 cup of liquid soap. Keep the mix in a clean container and mix thoroughly with a spoon to prevent sudsing.

Homemade bubble bath is a great product for a relaxing soak. This product can also be made with any number of additional ingredients from moisturizing almond oil to the sweet scent of vanilla.

  1. Gather ingredients
  2. A basic bubble bath recipe requires 1/2 cup of liquid soap, dish or hand soap, and one egg white. The liquid soap provides the bubbles and the egg white helps make the bubbles last longer. Add a humectant like honey, if desired, to help the skin retain moisture.

  3. Mix everything together
  4. Place these ingredients together in a clean container, such as an empty soap bottle. Consider breaking up the egg white first to make it easier to combine with the other ingredients. Mix everything well with a spoon to keep the soap from foaming up too much.

  5. Additional ingredients
  6. Experiment with different ingredients for the bubble batch. Oils like almond and sesame help to moisturize while adding a light scent, other oils like canola and sunflower moisturize without as much scent.
