D.I.Y Foaming Hand Soap – w/ Essential Oils

So I’m a sucker for the bath and body works soap sale. This is my favorite kind of soap and I rarely use anything else. I have discovered though that over the years, this soap gets more and more expensive. If you wash your hands like I do, then its quite a lot to replace the bottle of soap once a week in each area of the house that has a sink (bathroom and kitchen).

I decided to try and make my own (1. Because it would be cheaper, and 2. i wanted something without harsh chemicals)… So I took to pinterest and found that there was ways to make regular gel soap or foaming soap. I love the foam soap so I tested a few recipes to finally come up with what I love.

Today I want to show you guys how you can make it to. Its super simple and easy and only takes a few ingredients to make which is awesome!! Oh, and did I mention it is chemical free? 🙂

Make sure to print the supplies list and look for the YouTube video below to follow along if you haven’t already!!

Lets get started!!

What you need:

  • A foaming hand soap dispenser.  (You can wash and  reuse one that you already have or you can purchase a new one here)
  • 3 Tablespoons Liquid Castile Soap (I like Dr. Bronners baby mild)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vegetable Glycerine
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vitamin E oil
  • Distilled Water
  • 10 Drops Thieves Essential Oils (or you can use any scent)

What you do:

  1. Add the castile soap to your soap dispenser
  2. Add the vegetable glycerine and vitamin E oil to the dispenser
  3. Add 10 drops of Thieves oil or any oil combo of your choice.
  4.  Slowly fill your container with water.  Be sure to leave enough room for the large pump.
  5. Gently shake to combine all ingredients.

Happy Hand Washing!!
