In a pitcher, mix together 6 cups of water, 1 cup of unscented dish soap, and 1 Tbsp of glycerin. Make sure to use unscented dish soap here, or the scent will compete with the essential oils later. Stir the solution to combine.
This solution is your bubble base. Pour into 8 jars or bottles, one for each color of the rainbow.
Add a drop of food coloring into each jar so that you have red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. If you have more jars, you can mix up extra colors too, like pink or indigo. Once the colors are mixed, add a drop or two of essential oil to each color. Here are some suggestions, but feel free to adapt this using the oils you have on hand. Stir to combine.
Red – cinnamon
Orange – sweet orange
Yellow – lemon
Green – peppermint
Blue – vanilla
Purple – lilac
Pink – grapefruit
