It’s back-to-school season, or as I like to call it, ‘GERM DANCE PARTY TIME!’ Frequent hand-washing habits are a must this time of year, and nothing encourages that like a nicely scented soap that kids will love to use. The problem is that the store-bought stuff is full of chemicals and ingredients that may end of doing more harm than good (seriously, look up triclosan, yikes!) and the natural stuff can be pricey. Thankfully you don’t have to compromise because you can whip up a batch of natural foaming handsoap whenever you need it and scent it however you wish.

Personally, we love using Thieves essential oil in our foaming hand soap because the kids think it smells like Christmas and I know that it helps immunity and boosts wellness. It’s insanely popular for a reason!

The other materials are readily available on Amazon, holla Prime shipping!

The best part? You can reuse old foaming hand soap containers or purchase one new if that’s how you roll.

Now, for the recipe. The great thing is the materials last a long time, so you can make several batches at once and there’s still plenty left over for future batches.

Materials

empty foaming soap dispenser

20 drops Thieves oil

3 TB liquid castile soap (I prefer unscented so I can add essential oils)

1 TB vegetable glycerin (optional, but I recommend adding either this or the Vitamin E for moisture)

5 drops Vitamin E oil (optional, but it adds moisture)

filtered water

Directions

1. Add the Thieves oil, castile soap, and glycerin or Vitamin E to the empty container. Use the straw portion of the dispenser to mix.

2. Slowly add the water until it’s close to the top, leaving enough space to add the dispenser top so that it doesn’t overflow.

3. Gently mix again with the dispenser straw. Add the lid, and shake gently for one final mix.

A moisture rich, natural soap you can scent as you please. Perhaps try lavender for a calming scent. Or eucalyptus and rosemary for a spa-like environment.

When it’s back-to-school and winter wellness season, however, Thieves wins EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

The most important thing is to use quality essential oils, though. Promise me you won’t buy them at a discount store, go for the real thing, your health is SO worth it! You can use a scented Castile soap and skip the essential oils, but you’ll miss out on the health-boosting power of the oils.

  1. Just ran out of my favorite and didn’t have anything to use. Now I can make my own!! Thank you so much!!

  2. I made this with rose, neroli and tangerine oils, but the rose completely overpowers the other two. Before I make another batch to try out another combination, what can I do to not have it look homemade – it separates and looks ‘dirty’. I just shake it to remix everytime before using it, but everyone else in the house isn’t going to remember that!

  3. I made this and love it..i used other essential oils. Highly recommend this.

  4. Thieves Household Cleaner – is this a substitute for lysol type germ cleaners
