Make your own: Foaming Hand Soap

Hello! This morning I refilled my bathroom soap dispenser, and it took me less than a minute. Stopping to take photos extended my time to closer to five minutes, but none-the-less, this is a very FAST way to make your own foaming hand soap. Not to mention cost effective, and toxin free!

To begin you only need 3 (well 4, including water) things:

  1. A Foaming hand pump dispenser.

    Many of you probably already have some of these in your home that you purchased previously. There may be a sticker on it, but you can just leave it on, or remove it if you desire. I purchased my dispenser from a wholesaler.

  2. Castile Soap.

    (Castile soap is a vegetable soap traditionally made from 100% pure olive oil water, and lye.) I bought this through a wholesaler in a bulk form, and split it with a friend. You only use a small amount so it goes a long way.

  3. Essential oils.

    I used a OnGaurd and Wild Orange doterra  blend. Every time I mix up a new batch I use a different oil or blend. Just to change things up. Oils add a nice scent, and are antibacterial. Win-win

Step one: pour filtered water into the soap container. Leave about 1-2 inches from the top to add the remaining ingredients and allow room for mixing

Step four: Screw on the lid, mix by slowly shaking. (Shaking too vigorously will cause the Castile soap to bubble inside the container)

Now put it by your sink, and pump away! Foamy bubbles always excite my kids. Yay for washing hands!
