I’m big on DIY projects, especially when it comes to health and beauty (remember the honey mask?). I’m also a bit of a germaphobe, so I tend to go through bottles of hand soap at lightening speed. After seeing all the money and waste that went into buying & tossing soap bottles, I decided there had to be a better, more eco-friendly option. I tinkered with a couple different recipes until I finally crafted my ideal foaming hand soap.
Lauren’s Recipe for DIY Foaming Hand Soap
Fill your soap dispenser approx 1/5 full with Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap. Add one cap-full of the Thieves Household Cleaner. (If you are using essential oils, add a few drops until it’s scented to your liking). Fill to the top with purified water.
Ta da! You’re all done. It’s so easy, simple, and affordable. I personally enjoy using Thieves because it smells terrific and has antiseptic properties. To learn more about Thieves essential oil blend, check out this article.
