Best Hand Soap Ever!

This is truly the most amazing soap ever, it does not matter how many times you use it; your hands feel clean and nourished leaving the skin soft and moisturised. This is a well-used product in my home and is so easy to make that my son who is 8 years old often makes a batch with me.


What you will need:

  • Pure organic olive or Castile soap
  • 700 ml distilled water
  • Glycerine
  • Witch hazel
  • Honey
  • Avocado oil
  • Almond oil
  • Xanthan gum
  • 25 drops of lavender oil
  • 8 drops of tea tree oil
  • 30 drops of ylang ylang essential oil


What to do:

Heat the distilled water and grate into it 1/6 of the soap, weighing approximately 2 grams of soap or when it reaches to the 1/10th of a litre glass jug.  When you add the soap there should be 700ml of water so you may have to start with more and then when heated measure it in your glass measuring jug.

Add 1 tbsp of glycerine then the witch hazel and honey.

In a separate jug mix the avocado, almond and essential oils.

Pour the water liquid into a glass blender, add a further ½ litre of distilled water, the oil mixture and the Xanthan gum and mix thoroughly using either a mixer or hand blender.

You should then have a white looking thick consistency of soap which can then be decanted into a nice glass pump dispenser.  At this stage you can add further essential oils to get the desired fragrance.
