How to Make Homemade Hand Soap


It’s quite surprising how many toxic chemicals there are in our home, beauty, and cleaning products. This is a simple recipe that you can personalize with your favorite essential oils. Plus, your hands and your body will definitely thank you. 🤩

I use these essential oils because of the benefits they each have but also because I love them.

  1. Tea tree oil – is a powerful oil. It’s naturally antimicrobial and is excellent for your skin.
  2. Tangerine – I love the smell of citrus fruits, especially tangerine – tangy but sweet.
  3. Grapefruit – I love grapefruit in my handsoap. It smells so fresh and it’s also antimicrobial, so a plus.

Essential oils have many benefits. They are naturally antimicrobial, contain antioxidants, and the scents are not only energizing but can also stimulate and enhance moods.

My recommendation is to go to a store and pick out a few to smell then purchase the top 3-4 of your favorites and to use. Essential oils have many benefits and what you need is best determined and left to your body and senses, as your body knows best. However, if you already know what you like then it’s super easy to just buy and add. SOmething, you may notice also is the what smells you like or dislike can also change so don’t worry if you like one once and then hate it the next day. 😄

There are times I will choose rosemary (another one of my favorite 😉 in my facewash) instead of grapefruit or some other. It just depends on what I feel like that day.

Another quick note: I usually make a batch. In my household, it’s just me and my husband so it lasts a lot longer. Depending on your household – use you can make a large batch and store it in a container so that when you run out you can just add more, instead of having to make more. I would try to make a fresh one every 3 months at least.
