Did you know that by making your own foaming hand soap you’re making a positive impact on our environment? This happens in a couple of ways by re-using your foamer bottle there is less plastic in the environment. You are not using any chemicals which are harmful to you and everything Mother Nature has created – that is a win/win. When using a foaming hand soap you use less water when washing your hands. Cool, right?
Let’s get back to simple and natural hand soap.
What you will need
- Refillable foaming soap dispenser (if using plastic preferably BPA free)
- 1/4 cup Dr. Bonners Castile Soap
- 10 to 20 drops Essential Oils (do what makes you happy)
- 1/2 teaspoon of moisturizing oil, Vitamin E, Fractioned Coconut, olive, almond (optional)
- Filtered water
- Add Dr. Bonners Castile soap to the bottle
- Next, add Young Living essential oils
- If you are adding oil for moisture, do so now
- VERY slowly add water to about 1 inch from the top to allow room for the pump and to gently combine ingredients. To fast and you will have a soapy mess. (been there, done that)
- Label if interested
Essential oil options:
Really the options are endless. You can use a single essential oil or a combination. Each time I make soap I use a different essential oil. Right now I have been using Thieves. Other go-to oils are orange, peppermint, bergamot, lemongrass, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, or grapefruit. The choice is yours!
Well, I can say I have done my homework on essential oils and that is the reason I only use Young Living. They own or partner their farms, no chemical or pesticides are used, you can visit the farms, they do not cut or add synthetic products, just to mention a few. It is purely the plant and they are stewards of the earth. For these reasons and many more, I have become a Young Living distributor. When your ready to get started on oils and a company that offers over 500 products that support health, give me a shout. Well don’t really shout 🙂 reach out and I’m happy to help. If your a do it yourself kind of person you can get started here.
Note: If the soap feels to dry add more soap, to heavy add more water. Play with it, make it yours.
