Are you looking for the best DIY liquid hand soap recipe for Christmas? Learn how to make homemade hand soap with essential oils in dispenser bottle that’s easy to refill.
The holidays are fast approaching and if you are an essential oil user like many of us, you are thinking ahead and making up some great bath & body items that include your oils, instead of buying them from the store.
Making hand soap for yourself, for a guest bathroom or as a gift is one simple DIY that is super easy to do, works great and smells fantastic.
The frankincense, myrrh and white fir oils used in this recipe are cleansing and great for your skin’s health. You’ll find they leave you feeling uplifted and refreshed.
We use liquid Castile soap in our hand soap recipes because it has a wonderful ability to foam up and it cleans really well too. It’s very concentrated, so the Castile soap plus the essential oils and some water, and you’ve got everything you need.
You can use a foaming soap pump if you have one. If not, any kind of soap pump will work fine. We recommend shaking the soap from time to time to help disperse the oils and soap, as they can settle somewhat in between uses.
This recipe would be the perfect addition to your guest bathroom this holiday season. Or whip it up any time of year to enjoy the scents of the season.
How to Make All-Natural Christmas Hand Soap
- Be sure your pump is clean inside and free of dust. Measure out the Castille soap first and pour into a mixing bowl or large measuring cup.
- Then, carefully add in your essential oil drops. Go slowly when counting them out. The myrrh is thicker and it will be a slower process, but the other two are thinner and flow fast.
- Using a whisk, whisk them into the soap until they are well blended and it starts to get lighter and bubbly. Then, measure and add in the water and repeat the whisking step but do it for longer this time. You will see the soap begin to froth some in the water and this is what makes it able to become a foamy soap.
- Pour the mixture into your soap pump bottle. Depending on the size of your pump bottle, this may or may not be enough to fill it up. If it’s almost full, you can just top it off with water to fill the rest of the way and shake it well to blend, or pour back into the bowl and whisk again. Otherwise, use the same ratio to make more for your pump.
- Once the bottle is full, cap it off and place it next to your sink.
