Inspiration for Fashion, Food, and Living Naturally
Our 10 year old with her Homemade hand soap!
Don't these look so pretty! :) If you need help getting started with essential oils, email me at email@example.com, or read more here! Until next time friends!
Our kids were "out" of school for the hurricane here, BUT since I homeschool it doesn't really count! :) We homeschool usually throughout the year and take breaks when needed or when we vacation! So Hurricane Florence put a little damper on outdoor plans, but our oldest and I (she's in 6th grade), used the time to complete an "experiment" (so it counts as science). :) We decided to make our own homemade hand soap using essential oils! We usually buy the Young Living Lavender Soap for $11, but we wanted to see how much it would cost to make our own AND if the soap would actually be "good".
*3 Reusable Foam Bottles (Get from Amazon here)
*1 bottle of Pure Castille Soap (Grab from here on Amazon)
*10 drops of Lavender EO
We made three different Hand Wash ones, Thieves/Wintergreen, Lavender, and Spearmint!
1. Add drops of oils to bottle
2. Add 3 Tbsp of Castille Soap
3. Add water until 3/4 full! Shake!
It was absolutely so easy, cost effective, AND we absolutely love it! It smells yummy, it's toxic free, and super super cheap! Here's the breakdown
*3 reusable bottles: $10.95 (one time purchase)
*1 use of Castille ($0.24)
*10 drops of Young Living Lavender EO $0.80
(10.95 3 reusable foaming bottles, $15, 32 ounce unscented Castile Soap, $23.50 15ml Lavender)
Cost for first 3 bottles: $4.69
Makes appropriately 15 refills which cost approximately $1.10 per bottle! Isn't that AMAZING! So approximately $1.72 per bottle of soap! Wow! Wow! Wow! We will definitely make our hand soap from now on! It's super easy, cost effective, and makes for a great "science" experiment!
