DIY Foaming Soap

Foaming Soap is all about the Dispenser. Glass, plastic, stainless steel – there are lots of choices that you refill again and again. You can find them at Amazon, Walmart, Target and Wayfair. If you previously purchased a plastic foaming soap at the grocery store – you can just refill that too.

Are you ready for the magic recipe? Liquid Soap and Water. That’s it. Use a 4:1 ratio – 4 cups of water to 1 cup of soap.

4 cups of water – tap or distilled
1 cup of castille liquid soap
10 drops of lavender oil – or scent of your choice

You can make any liquid soap foam – shampoo, body wash, dish soap or hand soap. Have leftover bar soap? Cut it up and add 4 cups of water – let sit to dissolve a day or so – shake it to mix – and you are good to go.

Castille Soap is mild and easy on the skin – but you can add a Tablespoon of glycerine, aloe or jojoba oil

We like to reuse Mason Jars with The tops shown below.
