Unfortunately, those little bottles run out quickly, and they are more expensive than a regular bottle of soap. So here is what I came up with.
I bought a 32oz. bottle of castile soap. This time I am using Dr. Bronners Lavender Castile soap, but if I wanted to add my own essential oils to scent it, I would use an unscented castile soap.
It breaks down to be about 45 cents per refill, and you don’t have any nasty chemicals or foaming agents when you use liquid castile soap. If you try to use regular hand soap, you might have trouble with it settling out or clogging the pump.
Watch how easy it is to make this DIY foaming hand soap!
You will need:
- An empty 10oz foaming hand soap bottle
- 2-3 Tbsp castile soap
- Water to fill the bottle
- Optional essential oils (5-8 drops per bottle)
Add the castile soap to the bottle, then any essential oils, and then fill the rest of the way slowly with cold water (to keep it from sudsing up right away).
Replace the pump top, and now you have your very cost effective, DIY Natural Foaming Hand Soap!
