I guess everyone likes to wash their hands with great smelling soaps. There are stores that dedicate half of their shelving space just to highly fragrant soaps. However, the problem with standard soaps that smells great is that they are full of chemicals, dyes and artificial fragrance. Other natural soaps are either pricy or they don’t create a lather. My recipe creates a great lather and it’s free from chemicals.
Foaming Hand Soap Recipe
- 1/2 cup of Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Liquid Castile Soap
- 10 Drops of Thieves Essential Oil
- 3 – 5 Drops of Almond Oil (I add this to the individual Soap Dispensers)
- 7 1/2 Cups of Distilled Water
This Recipe makes 1/2 gallon of foaming hand soap so it’s super affordable.
Add the distilled water to your 1/2 gallon container. If you prefer, you can divide this recipe among 2 quart mason jars or even 1/2 the recipe for a smaller batch. I find that when I make this, it fills 3 soap dispensers perfectly; one for my kitchen and two for my bathrooms.
The reason that I recommend adding the almond oil to the individual hand soap dispensers is that if you want to use this as a soap base for a foaming face cleaner or a homemade household Thieves cleaner, you will need to adjust the almond oil for those recipes. I’ll be posting those recipes this week so make sure you have signed up for my email updates on the right of this post. That way you will get an email with the recipes.
