I started making my own DIY foaming hand soap as my family switched to a more natural lifestyle. I am not a crunchy mom yet, but I am working on it.
With concerns over antibacterial ingredients in many hand soaps, my daughter having extremely sensitive skin, and the fact we live on a homestead and wash our hands A LOT, I wanted a healthy and more economical option.
I did some research online and came up with a foaming hand soap recipe that not only takes care of the dirt and germs but also smells fabulous.
There are only a few simple ingredients needed to make this natural foaming hand soap. The essential oils used in this foaming hand soap has tons of antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic qualities, thus making this soap a strong germ fighter.
One of my favorite brands for essential oils is Plant Therapy and you can read why here.
I also recycle empty foam product bottles. I bought a foaming hand soap bottle at the Dollar General and took off its label (pictured) and I also have my little’s baby wash bottles I have recycled.
