Making Foam Soap

hand soap foamingYou can make foam soap for your bathroom, kitchen, or travel bag. Foam soap feels so light, airy, and silky on my hands. I just had to create a recipe for it with essential oils (to make it feel even more luxurious)!

My favorite way to make foam soap calls for castile soap, which is already in a liquid form. I don’t blend my castile soap with water to thin it out (but some people do, as it saves on the cost of the final product). Instead, I like to blend in a little aloe vera gel, for an extra skin-softening effect.

You can get foam soap pump bottles from Aromatics International. They have two sizes—one is just right for your bathroom or kitchen sink, and one is small enough to travel with. This recipe is for the smaller size, which holds 50 ml (1.67 oz).

I’ll be honest . . . I don’t actually measure my ingredients when I make foam soap! I just fill my bottle most of the way with castile soap. I add a little aloe vera gel, then I add about 30 drops total of essential oils. I always make sure to leave some space in the bottle, because once I screw the lid on, it will cause the liquid to rise a little. In other words, don’t fill it to the top.
