Hand soap is an essential throughout the home and office. Keeping your hands clean is one of the most important steps one can take in avoiding becoming sick. With essential oils you can craft your own signature scented hand soap. This recipe will make about 250 mL of bacteria-killing, dirt-scrubbing hand soap.
- 1/2 cup castile soap
- 1/2 cup distilled water (distilled helps prolong the life of the soap)
- 1 tbsp. almond oil or jojoba oil (optional but helps soften the skin)
- 20 drops of your preferred essential oil(s)
To make the foaming version of this, add 220 ml of water and 30 ml castile soap (2 tbsp), along with the same oil and essential oil measurements to a clean, foaming hand soap bottle.
