Kissably Soft Hand Soap

We are gearing up for Valentine's Day in our home. That means crafts, treats and decorating with lots of "love." My little girl is loving it! Frequent hand washing in our home is a must... especially this time of year. School = Yucky! However, it's not her favorite thing to do. "Mommy I'm busy," as she says. During the Christmas season, I put a small Santa figurine by her hand soap and told her she was washing hands with Santa. That did the trick! She wanted to wash hands with Santa ALL THE TIME. Oh the things we do. :) Well Santa went home until next Christmas. So I had to come up with another idea.

I decided we would make our own soap and decorate it for Valentine's Day. It worked!! Thieves Hand Soap is my all time favorite hand soap ever!! But I thought, the smell of "love" was in order for Valentine's Day. I don't know if it's the heart or the fact she helped me make it. But either way, we wash hands with "love" ALL THE TIME now. No fussing. Thank goodness! Our soap smells AMAZING! It's completely non-toxic and leaves your hands feeling kissably soft. Not to mention... it looks cute and fits in perfectly with our Valentine decorations. ❤

  • CAREFULLY, cute a hole the size of your soap dispenser in the middle of your metal lid. 
  • Next line the edge of the hole you just cut with glue and place your soap dispenser in the hole and press down firmly. This is to prevent leakage.
  • Add your castile soap, aloe vera, vegetable glycerin and essential oils to your glass jar. Top off with distilled water. Be sure to take into account how much space the soap dispenser will take up in the jar so it does not overflow.
  • Screw the lid on. Give it a shake. Add your decorations. Enjoy!!
