Last week, I shared the directions for simple foamy soap, but I have an even better recipe. I am a scent junkie. Since going with all natural, environmentally friendly, vegan products, I was missing the pretty scents of my old poisonous products. So I ventured into the world of essential oils, and it is lots of fun for a scent junkie like me.
Anyway on to the hand soap, my new favorite recipe will make your hands feel so soft and moisturized and it smells fabulous!
1 cup warm water
2-4 tablespoons liquid castile soap (Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild)
1 teaspoon pure vegetable glycerine
1 teaspoon almond oil
16 drops grapefruit essential oil
20 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops eucalyptus essential oil
Put all ingredients in a large jar with a lid. Shake to mix. Pour into a soap foamer.
Note: Vegetable Glycerine was a bit tricky to find. The pharmacy had glycerine, but it wasn’t labeled “pure vegetable glycerine” so it may have contained animal fat. Now Foods makes vegetable glycerine. My local drug store (Savemart) carries Now products, and they were able to order it for me. I wish that I could find organic vegetable glycerine.
