Homemade Antibacterial Foaming Hand Soap
I used to buy scented foaming hand soap in the store. They smell so nice and they have scents for each season of the year. I especially love the minty scents that they sell during Christmas season. As wonderful as they are, they contain chemicals and synthetic fragrances that are not good for our skin. Our skin absorbs everything that we put on it. So making homemade version of antibacterial foaming hand soap at home frees us from worrying about the chemicals we put on our skin and it works just as wonderfully as store-bought hand soap. It is simple to make, using only water, castile soap, and pure essential oil. Castile soap is a very concentrated vegetable-oil based soap and a little goes a long way. So it's not only economical, but also safe to use for the most sensitive skin. Here is how to make your own antibacterial foaming hand soap. You can substitute the peppermint essential oil to your favorite oil.
Re-use a foaming soap dispenser and fill it with:
1/4 parts of castile soap (plain or peppermint scented)
3/4 parts water
A few drops of peppermint essential oil
Put all ingredients in the foaming soap dispenser and mix well.
