It is healthier and cheaper option than the ones bought in stores. With this natural soap your hands will always be clean plus soft.
Homemade Liquid HAND SOAP
Two 5 oz. bars of pure castile soap.
1 gallon of filtered or distilled water
Essential Oils or Vanilla Extract (optional) : Essential oils can help with many conditions
(Note: When using pure castile soap there’s no need for the glycerin that so many other recipes call for as castile soap has natural glycerin in it.)
Step 1: Grate your little soap bars until you have a nice giant pile of shredded soap.
Step 2: Heat up your water in a very large pot. (I’d get it to a boil if you’re not using distilled water to kill any bad guys. Then turn the heat down until it’s no longer boiling… just hot).
Step 3: Stir in the soap. Keep stirring until all the little flakes are dissolved. Depending on the size of the grater, this can take a few minutes or go pretty quickly.
Step 3: Remove mixture off heat and let it sit for 12 – 24 hours. This mixture will thicken during this time.
Step 4: Stir in your essential oils or vanilla extract, if using. Start small and put in enough until you get the right amount of “smell” for you.
Step 5: Pour mixture into containers. This will make quite a bit. I was able to fill three soap dispenser and five other fairly large storage containers.
