  • A cup of very hot water
  • Gelatine

1. Pour the hot water into a container.

2. Add the gelatine. You need 1/2 a teaspoon if you want a soft texture; 3/4 of a teaspoon if you want an average texture. For a strong, firm texture, add a full teaspoon of gelatine.

3. For a wet look gel, add some vegetable glycerin or aloe vera gel.

4. Leave in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours.

5. Add the essential oil(s) of your choice and mix well.

And there you go! The gel will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge.
