Kitchen Remedy: Make Your Own Foaming Hand Soap!

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 48


1 gallon water
1 bar castile soap (grated)
2 tablespoons vegetable glycerin
2 tablespoons olive oil (grape seed, almond, or jojoba work just as well)
Essential Oils (such as lemon or tea tree oil) or use Nutribotic GSE (concentrated grapeseed oil) which is also antibacterial. You can buy this in any health food store
foaming soap dispenser


Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add grated bar of soap. Stir continually until dissolved. Cool for 15 minutes and add vegetable glycerin and olive oil. When completely cool add the essential oils. Pour into gallon jug for storage and fill any regular foaming soap dispenser.


So there we have it! It's easy, economical, all natural & antibacterial soap.

  • You have to have a foaming dispenser, if you want your soap to be foamy.

  • You can use liquid Castile soap instead of a bar but it will cost you a lot more money for the convenience.

  • I am happy with this hand soap. I give it a 4 star rating!
