The controversy over the harmful ingredients and the negative effects of anti-bacterial soap are now accepted as fact. Many products are boasting “natural” soap that are in fact full of ingredients that are still not safe. So how about just make your own all natural foaming hand soap for 1/10th the cost and the hassle of finding a brand you can trust.
Watch a short video about personal care products and ingredients to avoid.
If you want to know what is in your hand soap, make this simple recipe at home and you will avoid the toxins and save money at the same time. You can just reuse the current foaming hand soap containers you have or purchase new glass ones from Amazon.
All Natural Foaming Hand Soap
2 Tbsp Castille Soap
2 tsp Vegetable Gycerin
1/2 tsp of Vitamin E
6-10 drops of Essential Oil
Fill rinsed 8 oz foam dispenser within 1 inch of top and add these ingredients to the water. Gently shake. This will not smell like pure fragrance. I have some folks that have a hard time letting go of the need to have that overpowering smell they are use to with toxic synthetic fragrance enhanced soaps in order to feel like it is working. Pure and natural is clean and safe!
Your skin is the largest organ in your body, covering over 20 square feet on the average person, and accounting for 15-20% of your total body weight. The skin is highly absorbent. One study found you absorb 64% of the chemicals in water. Other studies have found that your underarms and other “sensitive” areas absorb 100% of whatever it comes into contact with. So if our skin is like a large sponge, absorbing trace amounts of almost everything it comes in contact with, then we need to limit the solvents and petroleum-based chemicals that are found in most personal care products.
Other Natural Skin Care ideas
Besides making your own all natural foaming hand soap, attempt to avoid harmful products in your skincare products as well. One of the best ways to clear your beautiful face is with a drop or two of essential oils. Essential oils are outstanding for using on those pesky red spots due to their ability to dissolve sebum, kill bacteria, and preserve the acid mantle of the skin.
A few choices of essential oils for rejuvenating your skin would be: Lavender, Frankincense, Tea Tree and Myrrh. Mix these with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, almond oil or grapeseed oil. Add a drop or 2 of Vitamin E oil for extra moisturizing.
