Fri-DIY: Foaming Hand Soap

We’re just going to go on a DIY journey for a while here, how does that sound? I hope you like this idea as much as I do!

I’ve been making my own foaming hand soap ever since I got started with Young Living essential oils, so around 10 months.. Wow! Almost an entire year! (I had no idea until I started writing this post, haha)

Anyway, making your own foaming hand soap is extremely simple. And when you use Thieves essential oil, or Thieves cleaner, from Young Living, you’re giving yourself and anyone else who uses your soap, a powerful boost to your immune system!

2-3 Tb castille soap

1/2 tsp vegetable glycerin (for smoothness on hands)

6 drops Thieves essential oil (or 1 tsp Thieves cleaner)


All you have to do is combine the soap, veggie glycerin, essential oils, and then fill with water! Make sure to leave yourself enough room to add the lid back on there or else you might end up with a soapy mess! Then just shake it around a little bit and you’re good to go! :)


Now, you can also add in other essential oils if you would like, my family and I tend to prefer the Thieves soap for the wholesome immune system benefits, but you might have another preference! You can also vary how many drops of the oil, or how much cleaner you put in your container, up to how much you feel you need – this is merely a starting point for you! Keep in mind that if you use any citrus oils, you must use a glass container. If you use plastic, you may end up with a hole in your bottle eventually, and nobody wants all their soap to go missing.. On the counter..

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this recipe when you decide to try it out! It’s super easy, super quick, and super great! :)
