DIY Anti-Bacterial Foaming Hand Soap

One of my favorite natural and organic products that I have come across since I decided to make my own personal care and cleaning products has been Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap.

Castile soap like Dr. Bronner’s is safe to use on pretty much anything. It also comes in scented versions which all smell amazing as they are scented with essential oils.

The first recipe I want to share with you is also one of the easiest things I make.

Moisturizing Tea Tree and Peppermint Foaming Hand Soap

What you will need:

An old foaming soap dispenser or one of the mason jar dispensers I made here.

1/4 Cup Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap

1 Tsp Organic Olive Oil

Tea Tree Oil

Water (Fill up the rest of the container with water after all other ingredients were added)

Just add all the ingredients together and make sure you shake regularly to keep everything mixed together (the ingredients will separate a little)

Experiment, yourself!

Many essential oils have antibacterial qualities including:

Cinnamon Oil

Lavender Oil

Lemon Oil

Peppermint Oil

Combine these essential oils with some of the other Dr. Bronner’s scents to come up with a unique scent of your own!
