Making my own bath and body products has been something I've been wanting to do for such a long time, but to be honest, it's kind of intimidating. Over the years, I've bought many books, studied essential oil properties and talked to a lot of experts, but I've just never made the move - until now! I'm starting off really simple...seriously, anyone can make this foaming hand soap. It's natural and frugal and cleans without chemical or antibacterial agents - what's not to love!
- Water (distilled or boiled)
- 2 tblsp liquid castile soap
- 1/2 tsp liquid almond oil
- 15 drops lavender essential oil
- mason jar
- pre-drilled mason jar lid and foaming pump top
Fill jar with water about one inch from the top then add liquid castile soap, almond oil and essential oil in that order.
Prepare pump top. Whatever you do, don't buy this one! It's not for foaming soap. I made this mistake once.
Close and lightly swish to mix.
Use regularly to wash hands, remembering to shake before each use!
