Have you ever read the ingredients on your soap container? Ick. You probably shouldn’t. Not good. (Here’s a blog post with linked articles on why anti-bacterial soap is bad for us.)
Anywho, I took oils and made my own! It smells great and feels great on your hands!
• empty foaming soap dispenser (I think foaming soap goes a long way further than liquid soap)
• liquid castile soap (I like unscented)
• vegetable glycerin (optional, but helps to moisturize)
• oils of choice (I highly recommend Thieves because of its smelly goodness and ability to kill germs)
NOTE: Pictured is JOY because I thought it would smell good with Thieves (and it does!). However, it contains citrus oils so I decided against using it. Don’t use JOY in your hand soap unless your container is glass.
Pour a little castile soap in the bottom of the dispenser. I just eyeball this but I probably fill the container about a 1/2 inch. Then add a squirt of vegetable glycerin and 10 drops of Thieves. Fill the rest of the way with hot water and put the top on. Slowly turn the container over and over to gently mix the ingredients. That will keep it from foaming like crazy.
I love this soap! Easy and inexpensive to make, great for the environment, and it includes essential oils! Win-win-win!
DISCLAIMER: The things I share with you are not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any illness or be a substitute for any medicine. It is true that I have found less need for OTC medicines, but you have to make choices that are right for your family. Another choice I’ve made is to exclusively use Young Living Essential Oils. I believe they are 100% pure without any synthetic additives. That’s huge to me! I have read a lot of material on different essential oil companies and Young Living is what I have chosen. If you choose to use essential oils, I encourage you to do some research and choose the brand that you believe in.
