With the right dispenser and this easy DIY hand soap recipe, you can make this fun, festive, and frugal Peppermint DIY Foaming Hand Wash!

Get your hands clean the natural way with this homemade foaming hand wash! It only takes a few ingredients to make, is all-natural, and very inexpensive! I decided to make mine peppermint for the holidays, but you could easily use a different Castile soap and different essential oil if you preferred.
Peppermint DIY Foaming Hand Wash
1 foaming hand soap dispenser (You can get a new one on Amazon, or reuse one from store-bought soap. Or you can do what I did, and put a foaming soap dispenser lid on a Mason jar.)
1/3 cup liquid peppermint Castile soap
2 teaspoons sweet almond oil (This is your carrier oil. You could also use jojoba, grapeseed, or fractionated coconut oil
10 drops peppermint essential oil
Red soap colorant (optional)
1. Pour the peppermint scented Castile soap into your foaming hand soap dispenser.
2. Add your carrier oil and peppermint essential oil.
3. Fill the rest of your hand dispenser with the distilled water, leaving about 1/2 an inch of space for foam to develop at the top. Add 5-6 drops of red soap colorant. Secure the lid tightly and SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE!
Then enjoy! You will love the clean and energizing aroma of peppermint as you wash your hands!
This DIY foaming hand wash is safe for dry, oily, and sensitive skin, especially if you use the sweet almond oil. Sweet almond oil can be helpful with rashes, eczema, and other skin irritations, and helps to make your skin healthy, soft, and smooth. But jojoba, grapeseed, and fractionated coconut oil can also be used to make a wonderful version of this peppermint DIY foaming hand wash.
