DIY Recipe of the Week {Chemical Free Home}

What's in your cabinets?   

Why am I passionate about getting the yuck out of my home?  Because I don't want to be in constant pain because my Endo is flaring up.  I know, it's pretty selfish, but it's the catalyst for change in my home.  For me, essential oils are another rug on my Healthy Living Ladder.  It's something that I'm choosing to do to help my family.

Let's talk foaming hand soap, shall we?  You can make this with your favorite essential oil or essential oil blend.  Let's get to it.

DIY Foaming Hand Soap

First, you're going to want to either purchase a foaming hand soap dispenser or recycle an empty one for use.  I actually scored three empty ones from someone else and have been using those.   Here is the list of ingredients you are going to use:
  • 12 oz of distilled water (you can also boil your tap water and let it cool)
  • 2 T of liquid castille soap (I like Dr. Bronner's unscented kind)
  • 1/2 t of liquid almond oil (you can use olive oil as well)
  • 3-5 drops of the Essential Oils of your choice (you can add more if you'd like)
  • Fill soap dispenser with distilled water leaving 1-inch headspace at the top (to accommodate foaming dispenser)
  • Add liquid castille soap
  • Add the almond oil
  • Add the essential oils
  • Secure the top and gently shake the mixture to incorporate
