I know what you’re thinking. Wow, this girl makes her own hand soap? It must be complicated. Well, it’s not, my friend! It’s something that’s saved me a ton of money. It also keeps unnecessary plastic out of landfills! Keep reading to see how I make my own two ingredient non-toxic homemade foaming hand soap at home.

Two Ingredient Non-Toxic Homemade Foaming Hand Soap

I was paying a ridiculous amount for a non-toxic foaming hand soap at my local health foods store. Like, $7 a bottle. We have six sinks in our house, so that’s around $40 a month on HAND SOAP. It was too much. So, then one day I realized I could reuse the dispenser, so I started buying the soap refill. But I was still buying a giant jug of liquid and having to dispose of the jug. It felt wasteful, and still really expensive.

Then I finally realized I could TOTALLY make my own soap from Castille soap, so that’s exactly what I do now! I don’t buy soap dispensers (because single-use plastic is SO 2002.) I’m also making a soap that I feel safe using on my children since I know all of the ingredients, and the best part is I’m saving SO MUCH MONEY.

Have I convinced you to try this out yet? Oh good. Keep reading to see how to make it! Here you go!
