Thieves Oil Foaming Hand Soap

Lately I’ve been experimenting with all sorts of essential oil recipes, some having been working (like this soap recipe and an awesome tub scrub -recipe coming soon!) and others not so much (like diy shampoo, can we say greasy much?).

I’m excited to share this thieves oil foaming soap recipe because it’s one I’ve been loving lately.

Thieves oil is said to kill germs so that’s why it’s the oil of choice for soap.

Thieves Oil Foaming Hand Soap

Items Needed:

  • empty foam soap dispenser (I just used one from Bath & Body Works that I had finished up)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp Castile soap
  • 1/4 tsp carrier oil (I used almond oil because it’s moisturizing and it’s what I had on hand)
  • 7 drops thieves essential oil (I use the Eden’s Garden brand)

Add the ingredients to the dispenser in the order listed, close the lid and give it a little shake and then it’s ready to use!

I love it and it makes my hands feel smooth and smells so clean!

I’m currently working on a post of my current favorite oils and some uses for them, hopefully that will be up next week. 🙂

Do you have any DIY cleaning recipes that you love?

  1. My comment is on your dry shampoo. You say your hair got really greasy, but how long did you try it for? Your hair/scalp will have a transition period so that could be why it got really greasy. I have stopped using shampoo or anything besides water to wash my hair and have found that my hair and scalp is a million times happier than ever. But it did take a month or so for my scalp to stop over-producing oil.

    1. I’m going to keep trying different recipes, the diy shampoo I tried had too much carrier oil in it and that’s what made my hair greasy.
