DIY Thieves Foaming Hand Soap – with Young Living Essential Oils

For those who would like to try their hand at homemade Thieves hand soap instead of buying the soap or refills. The optional vitamin E oil or glycerin helps with dryness. If you want it to be most like the Thieves soap, you might want to also add a drop or two of lemon.

How to Make Foaming Hand Soap

  • Obtain a bottle of liquid castile soap (I recommend Dr. Bronners brand, Baby Mild scent).
  • Reuse an old foaming soap dispenser, or purchase a new one.
  • Add 2-3 Tablespoons of liquid castile soap to the bottom of your dispenser.
  • Add 5 or so drops of Thieves (Young Living blend) essential oil or the oil of your choice.
  • Add 1/2 tsp vegetable glycerin or a few drops of vitamin E oil (optional).
  • Fill with filtered water; slowly!
  • Shake gently, to combine. Pump the pump a couple of times to get the foaming started.
