Foaming Hand Soap

Here’s one of my favorite DIY recipes. Spend a little for ingredients, save a lot over time!

Foaming Hand Soap

Combine the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp. (1.5 oz.) liquid castile soap (I buy Dr. Bronner’s Baby Unscented Pure Castile Soap purchased at Organic Harvest in Birmingham.)
  • 2 Tbsp. (1 oz.) glycerin (After trying several different brands IMG_4610[1] of glycerin,
    I’ve settled on Essential Depot Greener Life Essentials Vegetable Glycerin, available on Amazon. If you opt for a different brand, you may need to add another tablespoon to reach the best consistency of soap.)
  • 8 drops lemon oil
  • 8 drops orange oil (I use Beeyoutiful essential oils. If you opt for another brand, be sure you choose oils that are 100% pure, preferably from a full disclosure company.)

Yields 10 oz. foaming hand soap. Store unused soap in a glass jar and add a dropperful of grapefruit seed extract to serve as a preservative if you are not going to use the soap within 3-4 weeks.
