We've been making this easy, foaming hand soap since 2014. It is one of quickest "recipes" you can make at home and is a big money saver. If you've ever purchased foaming hand soap at the store, you know it's not the cheapest. If you're like us, you also know that those bottles go quick!
In steps this wonderful foaming hand soap! I love it because, unlike commercial hand soaps, I know exactly what's in it. Also, I can adjust if I want it thinner or thicker. The main thing is that you have to use a foaming hand soap dispenser. I buy these on Amazon and they hold up pretty well in our house and that's with a lot of use daily! You can also buy decorative foaming hand soap dispensers but if you have kids at home, these are nice and durable.
The first ingredient I use Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Liquid Soap for our foaming hand soap. When I originally started making this, I used almond scent but over the past few years I've stayed with the Baby Unscented. You can choose either but I prefer having the scent from the essential oil instead of the almond scent. I also purchase this on Amazon but you can find it at many health food stores.
The second ingredient I use is Thieves essential oil from Young Living. Thieves essential oil blend is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. It smells great! It's Young Living's signature oil and used in many of their cleaning products and personal care products.
Young Living is the only brand of essential oils we use and trust due to their Seed to Seal guarantee. If you're not into DIY or just want some awesome already made products on hand, they also have a Thieves Premium Starter Bundle. It includes a great selection of Thieves products and even their already made Thieves foaming hand soap.
You can also choose to purchase Thieves essential oil as a retail customer or one of our Starter kits. We have Premium Starter Bundles available that do contain Thieves essential oil . Once you add the Starter Bundle, you become a wholesale member and receive a 24% discount off retail for life.
Foaming Hand Soap Recipe
1/3 c. Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Liquid Soap (this amount makes a thick soap, use less if you'd like it thinner)
10-15 drops Thieves essential oil (I usually use 10 since we go through a lot of soap)
Fill the rest of the bottle with water and you're done! I like to give it a shake that first time but after that I don't. That's it! 2 ingredients plus water and you're done making soap in about 30 seconds depending on how fast the Thieves drops go into the bottle.
This recipe for foaming hand soap is so darn easy and I only wish I would have known about it years ago. It would have saved me from buying commercial soaps that were a terror on my skin. Since I've been using this, I haven't experienced dry hands but if you do, you can add 1-2 drops Vitamin E to the bottle.
Enjoy your oily day!
