SIMPLE Foaming Hand Soap

Hey friends!

Hand soap is just one of those everyday things we don't think much about. But if you consider how many times each day you (hopefully) wash your hands, choosing a non-toxic and natural cleanser can pay off in the long term. In this post, I want you to reap the same benefits that I did when I discovered this great hand washing solution. It’s as simple as using a foaming pump, water, and castile soap. That’s it, folks.

Now if you’re not familiar with liquid castile soap, it’s a natural, plant-based soap that pretty much will clean anything. You can use it on your skin, hair, floors, counters, laundry, dishes, and heck – I’ve even used it to wash my car! This stuff is highly concentrated, so you only need a very small amount for it to go a long way.

Perhaps the most well-known brand is Dr. Bronner’s, which includes organic hemp, olive, and coconut oil as a base. Using this as a hand soap will help to remove dirt and impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils, which are actually beneficial in protecting our skin and keeping it moisturized.

I like to use tea tree castile soap because of its antibacterial and antifungal properties, but you can use any type of soap: lavender, peppermint, unscented, etc. You could also add in a few drops of your essential oil of choice for variety. There are several different types of soap dispensers available. I prefer to purchase glass to cut back on plastic exposure. So without further ado, here’s how I make mine. It’s ridiculously simple.

Foaming Hand Soap

Ingredients 1 part Dr. Bronner’s pure castile liquid soap A glass foaming hand soap dispenser 5-10 drops essential oil of choice, optional 5 parts water

Directions 1. Pour 1 part castile soap into hand soap dispenser. 2. Add in essential oils if using. 3. Add 5 parts water.

If you purchase the soap dispenser I’ve linked to, it will give you visual directions for how much of each to pour in the bottle. I hope you enjoy this simple, natural household product as much as I do! In my opinion, making the investment to switch your soaps over will be well worth it.

Now I’d love to hear from you: what is your favorite natural home product and why do you like it?
