grapefruit peppermint foaming hand soap

There you are, in the bathroom, ready to run out of hand soap. It’s the end of the day and the last thing you want to do is run to the store to pick up some more soap before you run out. You also don’t want to go without soap because that would be, oh what’s the word? GROSS! So here’s my solution: DIY grapefruit peppermint foaming hand soap!

It is soooo easy to make. It seriously takes about a minute. After that minute you have a whole new bottle of soap that will last you a long time. It smells great and makes your skin feel smooth. Why not give it a try? It is only four ingredients, well five if you count water.


What you’ll need:

1 plastic soap bottle with foaming cap
2 tbsp Castile soap
2 tsp Glycerine
Grapefruit essential oil – 10 drops
Peppermint essential oil – 10 drops

What you’ll do:

  1. Fill the plastic bottle 3/4 full of water.
  2. Add the Castile soap, Glycerine and 10 drops each of Grapefruit and Peppermint essential oils.
  3. Put the cap on the bottle and shake.
  4. Use the soap.
  5. Smile because you don’t have to go to the store to buy more soap.

It’s that easy. Seriously.

You just have to have the Castile soap, Glycerine and foaming hand soap container on hand. The nice thing is that once you do you can get a ton of soap out of it. You don’t use many ingredients so you can refill the container tons of times. That’s the nice thing about the DIY products using essential oils. You buy the ingredients one time and then you can make the recipe over and over again and not have to keep buying more. They all last a long time, so they are pretty darn inexpensive to make. They sure don’t feel inexpensive when you use them. I love the way my skin feels after using this soap. There’s no film or slickness. My hands are soft.

You should make this too! Let me know if you do. I’d love to read your comments.

Have a great day!
