Recipe by JustaQT

I love to make some for friends and include the beauty recipe with it so they can make their own too.

You can easily make this gel thicker by adding powdered pectin. Add a tablespoon or so, mix well, and let sit for a couple of hours. I make mine in an old dishwashing liquid bottle, dispense a small amount into a pretty squeeze bottle for the shower, and store the rest in the refrigerator.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup of unscented shampoo
  • 12 cup water
  • 1 12 tablespoons salt
  • 12 -15 drops fragrance oil (I like to add vanilla extract.)
  • food coloring (optional)


  1. Mix the shampoo and water together first then add the salt and fragrance.
  2. I usually only add the food coloring if I am giving this as a gift.
