In our house we have to have foaming hand soap. If for some other reason I don’t then you should hear the complaints. I guess it’s just more fun! I then realized how EASY and how FEW ingredients you need to make your own and now we always have Organic Foaming Soap in our bathrooms.
I put essential oils in my mine for the scent and the great part is you can always make a different soap this way! Of course we have a Summer scent going on now. And you’ll notice I use all organic ingredients, though this is definitely optional.
DIY Summer Organic Foaming Soap
Foaming soap container. I like glass and my 16oz mason jar style comes with the stickers!
2 tbsp unscented castile soap. I like this one because it’s made from organic olive oil, organic cocoa butter & organic coconut oil.
2 tsp of sweet almond oil. You could do without it, but my goal is for the soap to make your hands soft and healthy too.
10-15 drops of essential oil of your choice. For my Summer theme I used Citrus Fresh from Young Living. The individual oils in this blend are: Orange, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Tangerine, and Lemon oils with a shot of spearmint.
Combine all ingredients then fill the rest of the container with water. The goal is to have 10 parts water to 1 part castile soap.
Other scent ideas to use with your essential oils:
Winter: Cinnamon Bark, Spruce, Balsam Fir, Peppermint.
Fall: Ginger, Nutmeg, Clove, Patchouli, Sandalwood.
Spring: Lavender, Geranium, German Chamomile, Jasmine.
The kids are happy again. DIY Organic Foaming Soap that we can make anytime.
