To make your own handwash you will need:
- foaming soap dispenser
- liquid castile soap
- essential oils (optional)
It’s super easy. Just add 1 parts castile soap and 8 parts water into your dispenser. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil if you wish. Tighten the lid and turn upside down a few times to mix. Voila!
I added 1/8th of a cup of castile soap to 1 cup of water and around 10 drops of lemongrass oil.
My dispenser was upcycled for me by Mr Imperfect by gluing a foam dispensing mechanism (from an old disposable foam dispensing bottle) into a mason jar. The lid has rusted a little and needs a lick of paint – but I kind of like rust anyways.
Liquid castile soap is great to have around. I use it to make body wash also and plan to make dishwashing detergent when ours runs out. Next I need to find a local supplier where I can get castile soap refills.
