Making your own Homemade Foaming Soap has never been easier! Using essential oils and an old soap dispenser, this DIY foaming hand soap recipe will help you save money and you won’t be exposed to some of the nasty chemicals in regular foaming soaps.
With all the Coronavirus craziness going around and regular hand soap being sold out everywhere, I thought I’d share this DIY foaming hand soap recipe with you. We’ve been making our own handsoap for over 4 years!
DIY Foaming Hand Soap
A foaming soap dispenser is a great way to keep kids from using too much soap when they wash their hands. Since foaming hand soap can be pricy (especially if you like the natural kinds), making your own using a mix of castile soap, essential oils, and oil is a much better choice. While our “recipe” for this is will result in a citrus smell, you can easily add your favorite essential oils to create a scent you prefer.
I bought a set of 4 of the foaming soap dispensers online, but you can also reuse ones you already have on hand. Just rinse them well before adding the new mixture.
I love being able to upcycle something I already have on hand. This foaming soap dispenser is just another great way to reuse something I already have on hand.
DIY Foaming Hand Soap Supplies
- 1 Foaming soap container
- 2 tablespoon Castille Soap – Dr. Bonner’s unscented works great!
- 1 teaspoon Almond Oil
- 10-15 drops Tea Tree essential oil
- 5 drops Lemon essential oil (you could also use Wild Orange)
I use Young Living Oils for almost everything oil-related, especially if I’m going to be applying it directly to my skin or ingesting it, but for a proejct like this, feel free to use this Tea Tree Oil and Lemon Oil.
How To Make Foaming Hand Soap
Pour Castille Soap into a foaming soap container.
Then add Almond Oil.
Next, add Essential Oils. You can choose to use different oils than the ones I recommended.
Fill the rest of the bottle with filtered water, leaving room at the top for the foaming pump.
Screw the pump back on the bottle securely and shake gently.
Pump desired amount into hands and wash with warm water.
Making DIY foaming hand soap is a great way to save money, but also to keep unnecessary chemicals out of your home. We love the natural cleaning properties of the tea tree oil and lemon essential oil. Combine that with hot water and a vigorous scrubbing and you’ll see fewer germs on hands.
Essential oils are a great addition to your cleaning supply closet. Not only do they provide amazing customized scent for your soaps they also have great cleansing power. With kids in your home, a quality product that doesn’t include a ton of harsh chemicals is a must.
