There are so many amazing hand soaps on the market now, but the truth is, many of them are filled with toxic chemicals that I can’t even pronounce. I’ve been making my own non-toxic home cleaning solutions for years, and this is by far one of the easiest! You only need 3 ingredients to make it, and the great thing about the ingredients for this hand soap recipe is that you can use them to make other household cleaners that can be found HERE on my Cleaning Page. For my hand soap, I wanted a lemon scent, but you can absolutely use different essential oils to change up the scent. Some of my favorite scents are lavender, orange, lemongrass, vanilla, rosemary-mint, and lemon-mint. I’m also working on some fall scent mixtures that I’ll be sharing soon. Make sure you sign up for my emails at the end of this post so you don’t miss them!

What’s in DIY Liquid Hand Soap?
- 3/4 cup of water
- 1/4 cup of Castile soap ( Purchase HERE )
- 20 drops of lemon essential oil ( Purchase HERE )
- soap dispenser ( Purchase HERE )
How do you make liquid hand soap?
First, you will need a soap dispenser. You can use a regular hand soap dispenser or a foaming hand soap dispenser. Just rinse out an old soap dispenser to use, or you can purchase some HERE.
Step 1 – Pour 3/4 cup of water into the soap dispenser.
Step 2 – Add 1/4 cup of Castile soap.
Step 3 – Add 20 drops of essential oils. You can use lemon like I did, which helps remove food odors and is super fresh, or you can experiment with other essential oils and mix and match scents.
Step 4 – Shake well and replace soap dispenser lid.
This easy homemade liquid hand soap is so delicate on skin and is safe for children as well. You could even let your kids mix their own soap…maybe it would encourage them to wash their hands more often ;) This soap also makes a nice gift for friends and family.
