If you are anything like I was, you probably walk by Bath & Body Works smell some amazing chemical fragrance, do a double take, and walk right into the store. You probably walk around smelling candles and soaps until your arms are full of goodies and your head starts to hurt from all the synthetic fragrances.
Don’t worry, becoming chemical free doesn’t have to mean, no more fun smells! Thanks to essential oils you can create your own toxin-free soap with REAL smells from REAL plants, rather than something chemically engineered and labeled as “fragrance”. Did you know that the ingredient “fragrance” is actually a catch-all label for hundreds of different chemicals…so something that says “natural fragrance” or even just “fragrance” could have just about anything in it!… They mind as well just write “possibly contains dog poop” on it 😜
Anyways, back to business. Time to make some REAL soap. The good news about all those trips to Bath & Body Works is that you can use all their nice foaming hand soap containers because they’re actually made with a good quality plastic (PETE)! Just dump out the chemical yuck and buy a big bottle of unscented Castile soap (one 32oz bottle will make about 32 bottles of foaming hand soap!). I usually buy my Castile soap on Amazon.. But you can also find it in decent grocery stores.
Now for the RECIPE!:
-Foaming hand soap dispenser
-2 Tablespoons Castile Soap (approximately, I hate measuring so I just squirt some in there)
-20-30 drops of your favorite Essential Oils (Don’t go to the grocery store and buy cheap junk, get the real deal here because then you can multi-task by getting rid of the chemicals AND adding in immunity boosting oils! BAM now you’re really on fire!)
-Fill the rest of the way with water (leave space at the top so you don’t overflow when you put the top on like I always seem to do..)
-Optional: 1 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil or fractionated coconut oil (keeps your hands soft)
See! Kicking chemicals out of your home isn’t so hard after all! 😁 #winning
So here’s mine! (Post pics of yours on my FB page @ultraoily for chances to win free stuff!) Since my new foaming soap is going in the kids bathroom, I added 10 drops of Thieves Essential Oil to boost their immune systems and 10 drops of Purification Essential Oil for its amazing stink-eating smell!! (p.s. Both of those are in the Premium Starter Kit here)
