I love this recipe! It’s non-toxic, gentle on my hands, and smells great. Like those fancy soaps, but without the fancy price. And it’s so simple to make, you just need 4 things.

1. Distilled Water

2. Pure Castile soap, I like Dr Bronner’s Organic, Unscented Baby Mild. You can find it at Whole Foods or online at It’s a little pricey, around $17.00 for a quart, but it’s meant to be diluted and lasts a really long time. The quart size I buy can make 32 bottles of this recipe, that comes to fifty-three cents per bottle. It comes in smaller sizes too, that cost around $4.00, in case you want to start slow 🙂

3. Essential Oil of your choice. I use lemon for my kitchen and it smells divine! I chose lemon for it’s uplifting aroma. But, you can customize this recipe with any oil. I think any of the citrus oils are great; orange, grapefruit, citrus fresh, lemon myrtle. I also like lavender or thieves for the bathroom.

4. A Foaming Dispenser, I bought mine at the Container Store, you can also reuse a foaming dispenser bottle you already have.
