DIY Foam Soap with Essential Oils

Tis the season that everyone goes crazy over Bath and Body Works sales. Buy 5 for $25, Buy 2 get one free, it keeps going on and on. I used to be one of those people digging through the buckets of SALE items and grabbing everything I could to stock up on soaps, lotions, and sprays.

In a my post about ditching candles, i explained about seeing fragrance in the ingredients. Not only do candles have all these chemicals added but soaps, lotions, etc. Personally, I figured if I am going to ditch the candles, then I need to ditch most of the products in my house or there really is no point.

If there are specific scents that you love from Bath and Body Works take a look online or on the back of the package to see what scents. Or do a quick Google of "essential oil blend of [insert your favorite one here]". You will prob find a couple different blends from there, i usually tap the images first to get a quick result.

To get started here is what you will need:

• 1 foaming pump dispenser- get it here • 1/4 cup of unscented Castile soap - get it here

• 10 drops of any essential oil- I put 3 in my Fall version and added about 10 drops of Thieves and Christmas Spirit then 5 drops of orange. Sign up here as a member to get a starter kit perfect with several amazing oils to add to your soap! (Lavender, Valor, Stress Away, Frankincese etc!) * Since I am not a doctor, I cannot tell you specific oils that will irritate skin- just be sure to do research of the oils you are using in the soap since this is going directly on your skin. Everyone has different/sensitivities skin or allergies. *

These make a terrific gift during the holidays! Add some twine with a label with the scent and you've made a perfect custom gift.

Easy, cheap & fun!

You can also get Young Living foaming soap if you prefer not to make it and just ditch the chemicals. Young living also has a great Thieves starter kit as well as a Thrieves Premium starter kit to really help you ditch and switch! They come with soap, hand sanitizers, household cleaner, oils, and more! You can get any one of those here.

Let the posts
