Homemade Foaming Hand Soap

One of the things we’ve come to love lately is these foaming hand washing soaps.

We actually picked up some Watkins brand soap at a local hardware store and kind of fell in love with the stuff.  Hard to believe we’re saying that about a soap!

But here’s the thing.  You can make your own wonderful foaming soap right at home.

All it takes is 1 part Castile soap to 3 parts water.  Shake it up well and you’ve got a foaming soap.

To liven things up a little you can add some fragrant oils.

Add 5-10 drops of any of these essential oils:

  • Tea Tree Oil – for disinfecting
  • Orange Oil or Lemon Oil- for an uplifting scent (perfect for the kitchen)
  • Lavender Oil – for a relaxing scent
