Easy Foaming Soap

Did I say easy? Yes! It's SO EASY! It's so easy that I can do it! I have been doing it- for two years. You can do it too!
Why would I want to make my own soap? I don't know about you, but I read about all of the chemicals that were in the products I was buying at the store, and it freaked me out. I have three children and I didn't want them exposed to the stuff in that soap. Did you know that anything labeled with the word "Fragrance" can have up to 300 chemicals in it. Yuck! They don't have to tell you what chemicals, but the number one chemical in "Fragrance" is formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a know carcinogen, and it's used to embalm people at the morgue. All I know is that I don't want to breathe it in or put it on my skin, and I FOR SURE do not want it on my kids!
I did a little research and experimenting and we have happily been using variations of homemade soap for everything in our house for over two years now.

HAND SOAP:


What you need:
Foaming Soap Dispenser like this one bit.ly/foamingsoappump

Ingredients:
1/3 cup Liquid Castile Soap (I use this one because it is fragrance free, and the one gallon size has made hand soap for our bathrooms and my children's classrooms, dish soap, shampoo, and body wash for a year. I literally just bought my second gallon: bit.ly/CastileSoap)
2/3 cup Filtered Water
1 ounce Thieves Household Cleaner (I get mine here: http://bit.ly/ThievesPSK)

(Alternatively, you could replace the household cleaner with 20 or so drops of Thieves essential oil, or even another essential oil like lavender, peppermint, tea tree or lemon. The best way to do that is to get started with the Premium Starter Kit- do that here: http://bit.ly/ThievesinPSK)

Directions:
Pour the Castile soap and the household cleaner into the soap dispenser. Fill the container the rest of the way up with water. Screw on the top and pump away!
How easy was that?

DISH SOAP:

I use the Foaming dispenser from the dish soap I used to buy and I make my dish soap the same exact way I do my hand soap!
I have also bought the Thieves Dish Soap which I love, but sometimes it's fun to make your own!

BODY WASH

What you need:
Foaming Soap Dispenser like this one bit.ly/foamingsoappump

Ingredients:
1/3 cup Liquid Castile Soap (I use this one because it is fragrance free, and the one gallon size has made hand soap for our bathrooms and my children's classrooms, dish soap, shampoo, and body wash for a year. I literally just bought my second gallon: bit.ly/CastileSoap)
2/3 cup Filtered Water
20 drops of the essential oil of your choice! In my last batch of body/hair wash for my kids I used 10 drops each of geranium, lavender, and Melrose for healthy hair!
