Homemade Bubbles

Bubbles floating in the air outside

Materials Needed:

  • 1/4 cup natural dish soap 1 tsp glycerin 1 cup filtered water
  • 5-10 drops natural food coloring (optional)
  • 5 drops lavender or lemon essential oil (optional)


  1. In a transparent container combine the soap, glycerin, essential oil, and food coloring (if using). Stir the mixture thoroughly to combine.
  2. Add the water and gently stir to incorporate everything. This will suds up some, but you want to avoid sudsing too much, or your bubbles won’t be as strong.
  3. Store at room temperate and use liberally for lots of bubbly fun.

Notes: To create a simple bubble wand, take one end of a pipe cleaner and bend it to form a circle that is roughly the size of a quarter (adjust size as needed to fit inside of your container).
