Today, I'm DIY'ing sudsy soap. It is quick and easy to make your own. One huge benefit, besides knowing what you put into the soap blend, is you can scent each bottle for its own use.
Step 1: Grab a storage jar, such as a pint canning jar or recycled kombucha jar. I like to make a bigger batch and then fill the individual foaming containers as needed.
Step 2: Measure 1/2 cup aloe vera juice (Lily of the dessert is my preference) and add to your storage jar. Add 1/2 cup castile soap (Bonners). This soap blend amount fits perfectly into a recycled kombucha jar.
Step 3: Fill your dispenser jar about 1/3 full with the soap blend. My foaming soap dispenser, available here, is about 8 ounces and can be reused multiple times.
Step 4: Add essential oils for a wonderful smell and protective ingredients. Here are the essential oils I've been adding lately: lemon, melaleuca, oregano, and a protective blend (mixture of wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary). Some other essential oil blends include a relaxing blend of geranium and roman chamomile, an invigorating blend of wild orange and peppermint, or a balancing blend of frankincense, bergamot, and lavender. I add about 10 drops of essential oils for this size. Shake well to mix.
Step 5: Add water, making the dispenser jar about 2/3 full. Shake well to mix.
Step 6: Give it a try. Wash your hands. Isn't it wonderful? Comment below.
