Homemade Hand Soap
It is incredibly simple to make homemade hand soap. No need to spend a ton of money purchasing this at the store. Plus, I love knowing my family is using an all natural soap.
We used Lavender essential oils and Tea Tree essential oils to make this liquid hand soap. The tea tree oils works to kill germs and viruses.
In fact, make sure you read my post on lavender essential oil uses. It is such a helpful post. If you are new to essential oils, don’t miss my post on how to use essential oils.
You can also make Homemade foaming hand soap if you prefer the foaming variety of hand soap.

I made this soap and found it to be too watery. Is there any way to thicken it?
Love this recipe! I’ve made it several times to replace the harsh soap in our restroom at work. I used 1/2 cup each soap and water (small dispenser), but the same amount vitamin e and almond oil. Everyone at work loves it, and their softer hands!
Where do I find Vitamin E? Is this in liquid form?
I find I don’t like the smell of tea tree oil, is there a difference in tea tree essential oil? Thanks
Thieves would be great in this as well!
