Making Your Own DIY Foaming Hand Soap Removes Toxins from your Home
Over the past couple of years, I’ve been working really hard to remove any kind of toxic products from my home. This includes cleaning products, bath and body products and food products.
When I first started learning about toxic ingredients, I used the Environmental Working Group’s website to learn more about the products I was using and what ingredients are considered toxic.
For a long time, I would use the Environmental Working Group’s website to find products that were considered safe by their standards. This worked really well for a while. But I decided I wanted to take things a step further and know exactly what is in my products. This way I can decide what I feel is safe for my family and me.
Making Your Own DIY Foaming Hand Soap is Easy
This hand soap is simple to make yourself and is very moisturizing. I know when I tried this hand soap, I decided I never need to buy hand soap from the store again. It is luxurious, smells good and is effective for cleaning your hands.
Ingredients to Make DIY Foaming Hand Soap
Vegetable Glycerin: This is good to have on hand for other bath and body products as well.
Essential Oils: You can pick whatever essential oil you like best at the moment. Sometimes I use lavender in my soap. Other times, I like to use one of Doterra’s blends. A couple of my favorites right now are Citrus Bliss and On Guard.
Distilled or Boiled Water: Make sure your water is not chlorinated.
Foaming Soap Dispenser:
I have used this kind where I don’t mind having glass. It fits right on top of a mason jar.
I have also used this kind that is plastic. These are great if you aren’t comfortable with having glass around your sink.
Instructions for Mixing Your Own DIY Foaming Hand Soap
First, add 1 teaspoon of vegetable glycerin in a bowl.
Then, add 2 teaspoons of oil (sunflower, avocado or olive oil are all very moisturizing)
Add 20-30 drops of your favorite essential oil (I used Doterra’s Citrus Bliss)
Whisk glycerin, oil and essential oil together
Next, add 2 tablespoons Castile soap
Then, add 3 tablespoons distilled or filtered water
Then, add 2 tablespoons rosewater or rose hydrosol
Mix all ingredients
Finally, pour into foaming soap dispenser
Once you have all of the ingredients on hand, you can make this soap anytime. This soap lasts for a couple of months and can be customized with whatever scents you prefer.
It is my hope that you will take a look at all of the ingredients in your bath and body products to make sure that there are no toxic chemicals. Making your own diy foaming hand soap is a great way to be in control of what goes on your body!
