12 Days of Christmas Crafting: Revisited
Day 8: Making a Moisturizing Aromatic Liquid Hand Soap
By Christi R. Pugh

Making a Moisturizing Aromatic Liquid Hand Soap

Today we will share how to make easy moisturizing hand soap, perfect for dry winter skin using all natural products found in our online shop. 

What you’ll need:

4 oz Liquid Castile Soap
1-2 teaspoons Vegetable Glycerin
15 drops Essential Oil or Synergistic Blend
Nature’s Gift bottle tape
4 oz or 1 oz cobalt PET plastic bottles with disc lid or treatment pump

Add the Vegetable Glycerin to the bottle and gently rock it to blend. Next add your essential oils of choice.  Some ideas include: Sweet or Blood Orange for the kitchen, Rosewood for the bathroom with a splash of Rose, Lavender and Bergamot FCF, or Lavender with Tea Tree, Rosalina, or Manuka. 

If you want to be certain the soap can also function as a germ killer; antibacterial or antimicrobial oils such as Saro, Benchmark Thyme, Tea Tree, Manuka, or Niaouli would be good choices, just not as aromatically pleasing.  I do love Thyme EO in my kitchen soap, but it is purely a personal preference. 

For gifting you will want the oils to settle and meld, and I would also use some of our bottle tape to prevent any unwanted leakage or spills.  In the past we’ve used the flip disc lids, but we also have treatment pump tops available, which is probably more “handy” for hand washing purposes.

Note: I like the idea of pouring it into 4, 1 oz bottles, and gifting the small bottles to friends and family.  It is a great way to share aromatherapy on a practical level.  Fix up the bottles with personalized labels, holiday stickers, and/or pretty ribbons.
