Make your own hand soap!

DIY Hand Soap

Before my DIY days, I loved to head to my local Bath & Body Works and load up on hand soap.  They seemed to always be running a “buy 4, get the 5th free” kind of special.  You can smell Bath & Body Works 3 stores down so it was never hard to overlook.  While it smells lovely-I no longer get my hand soap there for two reasons.  One, making your own hand soap is easy.  Two, like most things-anti bacterial hand soap is full of harmful chemicals.  Today, I’m going to teach you how to make a hand soap that is every bit as fun and effective as a Bath & Body Works soap, plus it’s easy and toxin free!!

      Martha, I have, but it’s complicated and labor intensive. I’ve not decided if I want to share it because it was so tricky to make! Have you?

    Thanks for sharing this! I would absolutely love to make my own bath soap. My nose is a bit sensitive, so I want to make sure that I always have soap that bug my nose. Hopefully this stuff will do the trick!
