We love making our own homemade foaming hand soap. I love that it is all natural and made with safe ingredients. My kids love helping mix it up and try new scents. It’s easy on our hands and foams really well too. I invested in some foaming soap dispensers from Amazon and I love them! I seem to have the worst luck with soap dispensers. It sounds ridiculous, but I have spent way too much time and effort getting them to work correctly and last a while. We’ve had these new ones for a while now and they still pump well and don’t get stuck. I’ll share the links below.


Here’s how you make the soap. It’s super easy.


For an 8 oz pump dispenser. Mine are a little bigger, so I double the recipe.

2 Tbs Castile Soap – here is a link to the kind I use

1 Tbs Glycerin – I ordered mine here

5 drops of Thieves essential oil

5 drops of Lavender essential oil

(You can also try orange oil or lemon. Have fun with trying new scents.)

Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water. Gently shake to mix.


I bought the glass soap dispenser here and it is perfect for our downstairs half bath. It’s not too tall and is sturdy enough to not tip over when active, smaller hands use it.: Amazon link


If you get a lot of light in your bathroom or you are using at a kitchen sink near a window, you might want to go with the amber glass version: Amazon link


The other two are a set of plastic bottles that look like glass: Amazon link [vc_empty_space height=”16″][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”44117″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”44116″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row]


There are lots of other options for size and color on Amazon. If your faucets are stainless steel you might want the silver options instead.

Here are the links to those:
