This is a basic and super simple DIY Foaming Hand Soap recipe you can customize to suit your own needs. Please note - You do not need to use the exact brands I have chosen for my own DIY Foaming Hand Soap, they are just listed as an easy reference in case you need a place to start. Almost all of the supplies for my version of this soap were purchased from Amazon (hello, Amazon Prime!) and/or the grocery store.
Here's what you will need:
Here are some scent combinations our family uses:
Unscented DIY Foaming Hand Soap
If you use the unscented liquid castile soap and do not add any essential oils, it is truly unscented. I do not notice any weird scent at all. I have super sensitive skin and am highly sensitive to most fragrance, so I actually like this version a lot.
Peppermint DIY Foaming Hand Soap
If you use the Peppermint liquid castile soap, the soap will have a slight peppermint scent with a tingly feel after you wash your hands.
Eucalyptus Peppermint DIY Foaming Hand Soap
Use the above recipe with the Peppermint liquid castile soap and add 10-15 drops of Eucalyptus oil to the mixture. I make this for my husband's bathroom and it has been a hit.
Cinnamon Clove DIY Foaming Hand Soap
Using the unscented version of this recipe, add 5-8 drops of Cinnamon Essential Oil and 3 drops of Clove Essential Oil. This oil combination reminds me of Fall.
Please remember - less is more. If you are unsure of how a specific essential oil or ingredient will affect you, please try a small amount to make sure you do not have any sensitivity issues.
The original version of this recipe was obtained from One Essential Community.
