Dairy-Free Castille Hand Soap

I absolutely love making our own hand soap with Dr. Bronner's Castille Soap.  It's all-natural and inexpensive. And I don't have to worry about it containing hidden milk.  

I make foam pump hand soaps for all the sinks in our house.  Bathroom and kitchen. 

These soaps are made with coconut, olive, jojoba, and hemp oils.  Then essential oils are added for scent.  

My favorite scents are the citrus and the peppermint.  They also make Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and more.

If you get the Baby Non-Scented Version, it doesn't contain the scented oils.  

I see there is an almond soap so take note if you have nut allergies and want to ask about processing.

The soap is 3x concentration.  So you want to dilute it with 1 part soap and 2-3 parts water.  I like the soap best if it's foaming.  I bought 3 foaming soaps from the store, dumped out the soap content, and now refill the bottles with my own Dr. Bronner's concoction.  

Be sure to stir the soap and water together with a butter knife.  Just shaking it doesn't work as well to incorporate the two contents. 

One big bottle of Dr. Bronner's will make about 6-7 foaming pumps of soap.  So this is very economical.  No chemicals, no additives.  It's chemical-free, too.  I love that.  Goes great with our e-cloth mission.

I tried to do non-foaming castille soaps for shampoo and body wash and wasn't as happy with the results.  The foaming hand soap is where it's at.  :)  

Have you tried using castille soaps made with oils???

We do this! And I don't dilute that much even.... we get great foam and it goes farther. :) But I'm cheap that way. LOL
