Homemade Liquid Hand Soap

A simple and fairly inexpensive way to create your own, quality, hand soap.

I have found, in the past years that I'm sensitive to various soaps on the market.  My hands break out from the harsh ingredients.

My nose also has put up a fuss!  Artificial fragrances are too strong to smell.  Once you use an artificial fragrance, your hands and house smells like it for days/weeks/months!  Artificial fragrance is like a living Entity.  Yikes!

I was looking for a liquid soap that didn't over power my nose with fragrance and it was mild on my hands.
Well, I decided to try to make my own liquid soap.

I bought some new, empty "Foamer soap bottles" from Amazon.
These bottles will automatically turn your liquid soap into a foam when pumped.

I found a place that sold 3 bottles.  
These bottles can be re-used over and over again.  I've been using the same one for everyday hand use in the kitchen for probably about 3-4 years now.  (A great way to help Earth!)

Next, I bought some Castile soap.  There are many brands out on the market.  I happen to buy this brand due to I have experience with it.

I have bought the unscented Castle soap in the past.  I just add my own Essential oils to it.
One of my favorite scents I've made was Clove/Orange.  Clove is a good antibacterial and antifungal.

Lately, I've been enjoying the relaxing fragrance of Lavender.  I could add my own, but this brand has a Lavender scent already to go.  Lavender is known for being antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and anti-depressive.

If you find a fragrance you like in the store, you can try to reproduce it, like I did (Orange-Clove) or if you don't mind artificial fragrances,  some places will sell their fragrance oil in a bottle.  
You'd just add a few drops to your soap.

How to Make:

1).  My bottles I bought holds 1 and 1/4 cups of liquid or about 10 oz.  And so I add 1/4 cup of liquid Castile soap to bottle.
You probably can get away with even less Castile soap in the bottle.  Goof around with the amounts.

2).  If I add my own essential oils, I will add them now.  I may add 20 drops of each essential oil in the Castile soap.  Add more or less depending on how strong you want it.

3).  Mix by swirling around.

4).  Add enough water to bring top level up about 1/2 inch from top.  You will need to leave a little room to replace the foamer spout back into the bottle.

5).  Replace your foamer spout.  Swish the liquid up and down to mix.   Bingo, you're done!!

Enjoy your soap!
Gentle, custom fragrance, and no added junk in the soap. (colorings, artificial fragrances, strong preservatives, strong antibacterial chemicals.)
