So you are probably wondering, “Why in the world would I want to make my own DIY Natural Foaming Hand Soap?”
Well, let me tell you why…because most store bought soaps are not good for you and contain unhealthy toxins.
One common toxic ingredient found in most conventional foaming hand soaps is sodium lauryl sulfate, or SLS.
This is the chemical that gives us the bubbles that we lather our hands in. I love the bubbles too, y’all, but not if they are not good for my family’s health.
The American College of Toxicology says that SLS can cause reactions such as:
-Corrosion of the skin
Say wha?! #mamadon’tlike
One thing that I have learned since using essential oils is that our skin is extremely absorbent. It soaks up every single ingredient we apply topically-the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Once absorbed by the skin, those ingredients transfer into your blood stream and body systems. And as they fester into Once inside your system, toxic ingredients, like SLS, begin to attack your healthy cells, and negatively impact the way they were meant to function. #notgood
And if that isn’t reason enough to stop buying conventional hand soaps, let’s talk dollars. Some of those fancy-schmancy-good-smellin’ hand soaps are expensive! Making your own hand soap with essential oils is not only cheaper, but better for your health! Win-win.

I also have several classes that I will be teaching coming up that I wanted to let you know about, (and one is in my home!)
This Monday, I will be teaching another “Getting to Know Essential Oils” online class!
The second class will be a Winter Wellness online class on Tuesday, October 17th, that will tell you all about the oils you can use to stay healthy during the winter months!
Lastly, I will be teaching this same class IN MY HOME on November 2nd, and it will be a Make-and-Take class where you will get to take some of the oils home to use! If you would like to attend this class, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
