just from the sheer inability to fathom paying another 6+ dollars for 1 20oz bottle of store bought foaming hand soap, i decided to start making my own. if that isnt reason enough, then maybe turn to the labels that are on your bottles to investigate just exactly what is in the products you use.
i have been making my own hand soap for years and have saved so much money and trips to the store i wanted to share this liquid gold with all of you. its simple. fast. easy. and has very few ingredients. none of which you cannot look up and find the natural source from which it comes.
WHAT YOU NEED:
Dr. Bronners pure-castile soap
Choice of oil
Essential oils of choice
Foaming Soap Dispenser
WHAT TO DO:
add distilled or purified water to the soap dispenser about 3/4 of the way full (where the first pink line is). I like to warm the water first as i feel it helps blend all of the ingredients better but its totally not necessary. add 2 tbs of the castile soap, 1-2 tsp olive oil, almond oil, fractionated coconut oil- whatever your choice oil is.
The purpose of adding this is to moisturize your hands while also cleaning them. the fatty nutrients in these oils helps to protect the skin and support its hydration.
next, add about 15-20 drops essential oils. i use Doterra branded oils and since its summer time, i have been using a blend of wild orange, spearmint, and on-guard. These oils have antibacterial and anti-microbial properties in them which help keep germs at bay, and might i add that this particular blend smells amazingly refreshing. i leave myself a little room at the top, where the 2nd pink line is, to put the to add the pump. this way it doesnt overflow. once everything has been added, simply place the pump onto your dispenser give it a little shake.
Voila! You have just saved yourself a ton of money, trips to the store and woes about unsafe products for you and your family's skin.
