DIY Foaming Handsoap

As I said before, i have been working hard to replace some of the basic items we use in our home with homemade versions. I love my essential oils and love removing some of the crazy ingredients. I am not a fan of antibacterial soap. I think that we go too far in trying to sanitize our lives.

On a recent trip to Target, we purchased a foaming soap dispenser. A quick Pinterest search and I had a recipe in hand. It seems that there are a ton of recipes, but all are very similar.

Here’s what I put in mine:

DIY Foaming Handsoap

3-4 TB Castile Oil Soap-I used Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint
1 TB Fractionated Coconut Oil
15 drops Orange Essential Oil (I used Young Living)
water to fill the dispenser

It really is just that easy. I love the smell of the peppermint with the orange.

If you don’t want to buy a foaming soap dispenser, you could always reuse one. I have even seen where some people paint them-they look fantastic
