I love making this foaming hand soap, not only is it super easy and takes about 3 minutes to make but using all natural ingredients means much safer for your family. You can add any essential oils you like, citrus are okay since you are rinsing them off with the soap enough to not to cause photo-sensitivity. I like to use a protective blend for obvious reasons and lemons since I have dirty greasy little boys playing in the dirt. Sometimes I will make one with a pretty smell such as lavender or ylang ylang for our bathroom upstairs to use before bedtime. You can use 2 tbsp or 3 tbsp of the castile soap depending on how soapy you like it. You can purchase foaming hand pumps here or reuse old ones. The first time I made this I was so proud of myself but it was also so easy, when my husband used it he thought I bought it since it was so good. I take that as a big compliment.
How to make your own foaming hand soap.
In your new or old foaming hand pump bottle

Make sure to leave a bit of space at the top for the pump to fit in without it over flowing on you.

2 tbsp of castile soap: cost $19.99 for 946ml, $0.31 per tbsp = $0.62
1tbsp of fractionated coconut oil: cost $11.45 for 1000ml = $0.17
10 drops of essential oils I like to use 5 of protective blend $0.87and 5 of lemon $0.30 = $1.17
Fill the rest with water cost: I will mark this as free $0

If you purchase at a less expensive store you get get some from $1.98 the next lowest prices is $3.74 which are full of chemicals and a lot of them include antibacterial chemicals which is becoming illegal in some states in 2017 and is illegal in most of Europe and in Minnesota because they contain Triclosan which cause a host of issues.
