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 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.
