DIY Body Wash & Foaming Hand Soap

November 17, 2018 |

For Christmas as gifts I made homemade body wash and foaming hand wash. Since then I have kept up stock in this super awesome stuff. We have saved lots of money when we buy one bottle of Castile soap it lasts for awhile. I buy this brand.

We LOVE this recipe for both products but the body wash leaves me soooooo soft. Oh my goodness!!!

Body Wash

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup aloe

1 tsp vegetable glycerin

1 Tbsp guar gum

3 cups distilled water

1 cup Castile soap (I use this brand here)

In a blender mix all ingredients except Castile soap. Blend until thick and creamy. After blending stir creamy mixture with Castile, I use lavender scent at this time you can add any essential oil you want I add Sweet Orange. Then put in any 32 oz container and enjoy! The smell is so wonderful you’ll love it!

Foaming Hand Soap

1/4 cup of Castile soap here

1 cup water

Mix together and put in any foaming hand soap dispenser. I add essential oils to this also.

For both of these I made mason jar dispensers. I just saved the pumps and drilled holes in the tops then glued them in place. Wahla you have a fancy dancy dispenser.

Benefits of the Ingredients Found in Our Soap All of our soaps contain a moisturizing blend of Argan, Hemp and Jojoba oils. Our Lavender-scented soap also contains the wonderfully fragrant addition of Lavender essential oil. We’ve highlighted the benefits of these ingredients below, so you know what to look forward to from your bottle.

Lavender Essential Oil is a popular essential oil frequently used in a variety of forms including aromatherapy oil, perfumes, gels, infusions, lotions, and soaps. Known as a natural sleep aid, people often use lavender oil to help regulate their sleeping patterns. Other benefits include:
– beautifully fragrant
– good for sinuses
– natural sleep aid
– calming and soothing aromas

Argan Oil is a highly moisturizing oil derived from the argan tree native to Morocco. Typically, pure castile soap can be quite drying for hair, so the addition of argan oil helps to boost the moisturizing properties of the soap.

Jojoba Oil is the only oil that closely resembles human sebum – a waxy substance naturally produced by glands within the skin. This makes it a great choice for natural skin conditioner.

Hemp Oil is rich in proteins, essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, and vitamin E antioxidants. These nutrients have a number of great effects when used on skin.

What Makes Our Soap Different

You can feel good about using this soap. It’s natural, vegan, and fully biodegradable. We left out the bad stuff, so there’s no detergents, no foaming agents, no chemicals, and no animal products – only pure, certified organic plant oils transformed into soap. We keep it simple and eco-conscious.

We care about your skin. The added argan, hemp, and jojoba oils are packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. For good measure, we also threw in some olive oil and vegetable glycerin. Together, these ingredients work to repair and illuminate your complexion.

But, it isn’t just bath soap. You can dilute and mix it to create a thousand different personal care and cleaning products (well, maybe not that many). Use it as a body wash, hand soap, shampoo, facial cleanser, shaving cream, baby wash, pet shampoo, dish soap, laundry detergent, scrubbing cleaner, glass cleaner, insecticide, anti-fungal plant spray, and many more! Because we’ve got your back, several of our favorite recipes are included right on the bottle.
