I've always been conscientious of what we throw away, and even more importantly, what we can choose to up-cycle and use in additional ways. So if you've had some foaming hand soap dispensers laying around (or even better, if you thought you needed to buy another), then this post is for you. For under 2 minutes and for a handful of change, you can have yourself a brand new replenished bottle of foaming hand soap, and it smells terrific too.
I can't claim the template as my own recipe, and I give credit to watching this beautiful Youtube episode all about castle soap....but I did think blending lavender and grapefruit was a pretty groovy idea.
So here's what you'll need:
1 empty foaming hand soap dispenser (reuse an old one preferably)
5 drops Lavender Young Living Essential Oil
5 drops Grapefruit Young Living Essential Oil
1/2 tsp sweet almond oil
1 tablespoon Unscented Dr. Bronners Castille Soap
our the essential oils, sweet almond oil, and castle soap to the empty bottle. Fill almost all the way up with filtered water (not all the way to the top so that the pump can fit). Put the pump on, close, and shake to combine well. Label as you wish!
How easy was that? I like to fill up multiple bottles at one time so that I can do it and be done with it. Easy peasy.
