DIY Foaming Hand Soap

DIY Foaming Handsoap

After reading this post you will wonder why you ever spent oodles of money on expensive hand soap when you could have made it yourself for a FRACTION of the cost! This recipe is so simple!

All you need are 4 things!


  • 2 tablespoons liquid castile soap (unscented) I prefer Dr. Bronner's brand.

  • 1 tablespoon Fractionated Coconut oil (or any skin oil – grapeseed oil, almond oil, jojoba oil)

  • 10 drops essential oils of choice (or split 50/50 for a fun blend! I’m using my lemon oil for a fresh kitchen smell!

  • 1 foaming soap dispenser (or use a used one, you can use any old foaming hand pump — but it has to be a foaming pump.)


1. Pour castile soap and Fractionated Coconut Oil into bottle. 2. Add essential oils. 3. Slowly add water into bottle making sure to leave room for the foaming pump. 4. Add lid, shake, and you are good to go! 5. When ready to use, just pump 1-2 times into hands and wash with warm water.

THAT’S IT! So save your old pumps and next time make your own in less than 3 minutes!
