Liquid Hand Soap Recipe

2 cups of grated (cured) castile soap
1 tablespoon of palm oil
1 teaspoon vodka
1/2 tablespoon glycerin (optional)
1/2 teaspoon lemon essential oil (or any EO)
1/2 teaspoon grapefruit essential oil (or any EO)
1/2 teaspoon eucalyptus essential oil (or any EO)
2 1/2-3 cups of spring or distilled water
2 pump or foaming bottles

Over low heat and in a double-boiler pan, add grated soap, palm oil, glycerin and water. Simmer until all the soap has melted and is liquefied. Add vodka. Remove from heat and let cool slightly before adding the essential oils, mix well. Let cool completely before pouring into bottle and check the consistency (if too thick, add more spring water and stir).

Using a funnel, slowly pour liquid soap into chosen bottle. Avoid any lumpy soap that may have not melted from going into the funnel. Label and use.

Makes 2 - 8 oz bottles

Thanks! Do you have to use the foamy bottles? Will it still be OK in a normal pump bottle?

I had a go with my semi castille base. Just grated it and threw it in a bottle with lavender hydrosol. Well, I've got goo, slime, what ever you like to call it. Really looks and feels disgusting!!!
I'll try your method next time stephie!
