Got a bath ball for free? Make shower gel out!

You got a bath or an oil bath and you do not have a bath? Or your bath ball is broken? No problem, you can easily make a shower gel out of it.

All you need is:

your bath ball or oil bath


1/2 cup perfume-free shower gel (I have mine from the baby division of DM, Ultra-Sensitiv for ~ 2? The tube (but I think you can take any other perfume-free shower gel from any other company too.) I got it with the just try it!)

1 mixing bowl

1 fork


1 rolling pin or 1 rasp (the rasp takes an old one, I had to throw away mine because I did not get it clean)

1 shampoo or shower gel bottle, washed out

Freezer bag for the bathing ball



Step 1:
Put bath ball in the bag and pulverize with the rolling pin.

or:
Carefully grate the oil bath with the grater. It is recommended to put the oil bath in the freezer for 1 hour otherwise it will melt in the hands.

Step 2:
Add the half cup of shower gel to the bowl, add the bath powder or oil razor and stir well with the fork. The mass should be stirred for about 5 minutes until any lumps are dissolved. The mass foams easily, gets a loose-airy-fluffy consistency and has a nice smell and a great color thanks to your bath ball.

Step 3:
Let the mass stand until the foam is gone and everything has settled. Then you can fill it in the shampoo bottle with the help of a funnel or another freezer bag.

As you can see, this is a pretty simple thing.

PS: I have not tried it yet with self-made bath balls on cocoa butter basis or other types of butter. By the bathing balls I mean the baked ones, which are e.g. at the vegetarian, English cosmetics chain gives (L * sh).
