Have you always wondered how to make foaming hand soap? It’s so easy-peasy that you’ll never buy foaming hand soap again!
Several years ago my family ditched antibacterial hand soaps, and we’ve been making our own foaming hand soap ever since!
It’s easy, frugal, and it makes a great Christmas gift! Adding in some peppermint essential oil makes it oh-so-seasonal as well!

Homemade Peppermint Foaming Hand Soap
- 1/4 parts peppermint scented castille soap (or plain)
- 3/4 parts distilled water
- 2-3 drops peppermint essential oil
- a foaming soap dispenser
Mix soap and water. Drop in and mix in oils. Pour into a foaming soap dispenser. That’s IT!
I found this great tutorial for making a cute foaming hand soap dispenser out of a canning jar. With my hubby’s help (I’m not crafty, remember?), we’ve made one for our bathrooms and kitchen, and we have made them as Christmas gifts in the past.
We purchased the canning jars and plastic canning lids at Wal-Mart, and we also purchased some colorful (red or green for Christmas!) smooth stones to go in the bottom of the jars.
We purchased the foaming dispenser tops, here.
