So part of my new changes I’m trying to implement in my life and improve my health, is to introduce essential oils and remove chemical products from my house. The first step was I wanted to make my own foaming hand soap. There’s plenty of recipes online with simple recipes and nearly all of them vouch for the unscented Castile Soap, then you add your own essential oils (like this one).
I’m about to give you an extreme warning! NEVER use Castile Soap! I don’t know how there are hundreds of blogs recommending this stuff, and not one of them warn you that the stuff stinks and leaves an oily residue. It’s absolutely awful! I tried adding more essential oils, I tried adding more water. I added other stuff and nothing took away the awful undertone that stuck on my hands for hours!
So this journey with finding an essential oil hand soap recipe will take a big longer with some trial and error. I’ll let you know how I go!
