Hippi Living: Foaming Hand Soap.




When we started taking the chemicals out of the house I tried to find ways to make small changes that could benefit our family. One of the changes was with our hand soap. We wash our hands all the time. Henry is OCD and washes his hands every 25 minutes...

So I decided to make my own. I had everything on hand to refill our foaming hand-soap bottles that we already had. (Look at that- re-purposing and recycling)

2 tablespoons  Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap (This is lemon scent. You can also get unscented or lavender, or any other scent that you like, I'm not your boss...)

1.5 cups water

5 drops of essential oils. (I used lemon but only because my castile was lemon...)

This is the gift that keeps on giving.
A bottle of Castile soap costs - $10-15 for 32oz.
You can make hand soap 100 times before you need to buy another bottle... (I'm not sure if that is true but by my math calculations it sounds about right...)

I use this as body soap as well on myself and the kids.

Enjoy making soap..

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.
