Easy DIY Natural Hand Soap

I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with castile soap. The way your skin feels after you use it, is, well, incredible. Does anyone else agree?  About 2 months ago, I couldn’t find the refill bottle for the liquid soap that I had been buying for years.  I was certain I had some in the house, but I didn’t know where it was.  Maybe we do have some, but I still haven’t found it.  I decided then and there to take my love of castile soap and my lack of liquid hand soap, and create my own natural hand soap.  This is one of the easiest DIY beauty or skincare projects I’ve done in a while.  Within ten minutes, I had my first bottle of natural hand soap, and after a few weeks, I made another bottle, tinkered with the proportions, and make something that works great, smells heavenly and has enough moisturizing benefits to make my skin feel awesome.  Needless to say, I’ve been using this natural hand soap constantly!

Do you love castile soap and essential oils? All you need are these and a few other natural ingredients to make a natural hand soap for yourself. With essential oils, you can pick whatever scent you'd like. It takes less than 10 minutes to make and will leave your hands feeling and smelling wonderful!

So all you need to do gather your favorite soap dispenser– I used a Mason Jar and soap dispenser lid.  You will also need the following from your essential oil/ natural beauty and soap supplies.

You can make this in a 2 cup Pyrex glass measuring cup (or a larger one if you want to make a double batch, depending on the amount of natural hand soap that you want to make.  I keep a small whisk next to the cup to mix the ingredients.  Pour the distilled water and castile soap into the measuring cup, and whisk.  Then add into the mixture your vegetable glycerine (to increase foaming), vitatmin E oil, and jojoba oil.  Whisk thoroughly before adding your essential oil.  I used the Immune Strength blend (which is comparable to the MLM Young Living Theives) because I like the smell and the benefits.

If you wanted to make a different smell for the holiday or different rooms in your house, you can modify the essential oils.  I use 30 drops because I found that was the right proportion for the slightly over 2 cups of hand soap this recipe created.

Once completed, I poured the soap into two different mason jars for our bathrooms.  Now I just make a batch (or half batch) when I notice the mason jars are running low.

So for all of you Castile Soap fans, I hope you’ll test out this mixture and let me know what you think!

  1. This sounds so lovely and natural. I’m definitely going to try it out. Thanks you for sharing Emily

  2. Is this a foaming hand soap or could it be made into one? I take regular hand soap and put it into foaming dispensers with water. It extends the life of my soap and works better with kids. Tip I found somewhere.
