Make your own Foaming Hand Soap!

With the booming popularity of foaming hand soap lately, wouldn't it be great to know that you can make your own at home?  Well, you can!  And even better, it's all natural!  Just save your empty bottles and fill 'em up your own way.  What's more, it will cost pennies on the dollar compared to buying the commercial varieties! 

It only takes me about 30 seconds to make a bottle and it's super simple!  Here's what you'll need:

  • Empty bottles with the foaming pump
  • Liquid Castile Soap (You may use any of the scent varieties you like, but I tend to go with the mostly unscented tea tree version and let the essential oils add the scent.)
  • 1/2 tsp. Almond Oil (optional)
  • Your choice of essential oils

  1. Fill soap dispenser with distilled water about an inch from the top.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of Castile soap.
  3. Add almond oil and essential oils in any combination you choose.
  4. Close and lightly swish to mix.

The combinations you can use here are truly endless, just have fun and experiment!

Here are some of my favorites:
Orange, Cinnamon and Clove
Lemon Lavender
Basil & Lemon

Happy Hand washing!  :-)
