Foaming Castile Hand Soap

Foaming Hand Wash

I just switched to an all natural homemade foaming hand soap for all my bathrooms. These make great gifts and are super easy to make.


1 foaming dispenser bottle. I like this one. because it foams up nicely, producing a rich lather.
1 cup distilled water
1 cup castile soap
1 tablespoon vitamin E oil
1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin
2 tablespoons almond, coconut or grapeseed oil.
30-40 drops essential oils of your choice

Place water in dispenser first, then add the rest of the ingredients. Label and shake before each use. Use within 3 months.

Here are some of my favorite scent blends. Use about 5-10 drops per oil depending on how strong you like it to smell.
Rosemary, Cinnamon, Orange, Clove and Eucalyptus
Lemon, Orange, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree
Eucalyptus, Lavender and Tea Tree
Pine, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Peppermint
