Is anyone else washing their hands much more than usual? I am for sure. With all the sicknesses and germs going around, hand washing is a must. But with lots of hand washing comes dry and even cracked hands! The dry winter weather doesn’t help either. That is where a nice DIY sugar hand scrub followed by some DIY liquid soap can come in handy! This simple DIY liquid soap recipe for Moisturizing Foaming Hand Soap is really nice for this time of year. It’s easy to make and is gentle yet effective.
The lavender essential oil that I used is very soothing and calming for the skin making it the perfect essential oil to add to this Moisturizing Hand Soap and the orange essential oil got added because, who doesn’t like the fresh smell of orange?!
Moisturizing DIY Liquid Soap Recipe
DIY Liquid Soap Ingredients:
- Lavender Castile Soap (I prefer Dr Bronner’s Brand)
- Young Living Lavender Essential Oil
- Young Living Orange Essential Oil
- Empty Foaming Soap Container (can be purchased on Amazon)
- Vitamin E oil (optional)
How To Make your Moisturizing DIY Liquid Soap:
Grab your liquid soap ingredients and head to the kitchen counter. If you want this to work as a foaming hand soap recipe, you must have an empty foaming soap container because the secret to foaming is actually in the pump. If the foaming part does not matter to you, you can use a regular soap pump or make a mason jar soap dispenser.
Start by filling your soap container 1/3 of the way up with your liquid Castile soap. There are many different scents that you can choose. I chose Lavender since we are making a Lavender and Orange soap but you can choose whichever scent you would like. They even offer an unscented liquid Castile soap. Once you have the Castile soap poured in, add your essential oils. Drop in 5 drops of Lavender and 5 drops of Orange. Next, fill the rest of the bottle up with distilled water. Place the top on and give a little shake! It’s ready to use.
To add a little extra moisture to your hand soap, add 3 drops of Vitamin E oil. The Vitamin E oil is very moisturizing for skin as well as having many benefits. Don’t forget to shake well.
