DIY Foaming Hand Soap

Posted on April 10, 2017 by Melissa Auxier

Years ago, I was having trouble with really dry hands, this was before my soap making days and I was just beginning my journey to a healthier way of living.  I realized that the hand soap I was purchasing from the store was causing my dry hands and decided to search for a better way.  It had to be easy as at the time I had many children under tow.  So, here is what I found.

At first, I purchased foaming soap at the store and poured out the contents, not very frugal I realize, but the pain and discomfort it was causing me outweighed the loss of the discarded soap.  So, with foaming bottle in hand, I poured in about 1/4 inch of an organic castille soap, like Dr. Bronners or Vermont Soap.  Then fill the container slowly with water, if you fill too fast, you will just create a bottle of foam.  You can leave it unscented or put 15-20 drops of your favorite essential oil or blend into the foaming bottle.  Put the cap on and you're all set.  This works like a charm and it's saved my hands and hundreds of dollars. 

 1 or 2 Foaming Soap Bottles

1/8 cup (approximately) of organic liquid castille soap per bottle

Water

15-20 drops of essential oil
