How to make a foam soap for home and travel
Hi, I’m excited to show you how easy it is to make foam soap. And this soap is great for your office, like a massage office or the office that you work in. Or you can use it at home, I actually have these in my bathroom and in my kitchen. Really nice. So, this is the small foam soap container. And it’s 50 mils, or just under two ounces.
And that’s what we’re going to blend in today. I do also have the bigger one. This is the one I actually use at my house, and this one is 250 mils. or about eight ounces.
So, I have a big jug of castile soap here. And it’s a little hard to pour right from the jug into this little bottle. So I’m gonna to pour the castile soap right into this glass beaker.
And this is a really great glass beaker. It’s actually made by Bodum. And what I love about it is that it’s just got a really good little pouring spout. Nice and angled, so it really doesn’t leak when you pour.
So, I’m going to take the top off of the foam container and I’m going to fill this up just about three quarters of the way because when you put this back in the soap rises, so you need to have a little space at the top, just so it doesn’t overflow. So, I’m just gonna pour it in here. And we’ll go bout that far, about three quarters. A little more than three quarters of the way. And then I’m gonna add essential oils. You can add any essential oils you want.
I’m gonna add lemon, peppermint and palmarosa. So the lemon is so antimicrobial, and just great for killing germs and also really bright and fresh. A lot of people associate it with cleaning, because a lot of cleaning products have lemon. So, we’re gonna add ten drops of lemon. That was exactly ten, amazing.
They come out fast, these drops, so you gotta kind of measure it. But really even if you got nine drops or 11 drops, it’s fine. And then we’re gonna add 10 drops of palmarosa. And palmarosa is gonna add a really light, floral, rosy scent.
And it blends so beautifully with lemon. It’s also very refreshing and bright, beautiful. But also a gentle floral smell. It’s not too overwhelming. So, we’ll add 10 drops of palmarosa. As soon as she decides to come out of the bottle.
There we go. Great. And then at the end, I’m gonna add two drops of peppermint. And two drops of peppermint is enough because peppermint is so strong.
Even just opening it, I can smell it really strong and it’s gorgeous and so bright and refreshing But you just don’t need a lot of it. And if we wanna still smell the lemon and the palmarosa in here, two drops is gonna do it. And also, it’s great for cleansing so perfect to wash your hands. That was two right there. That’s pretty, that’s perfect.
That’s a good combination. So then I’m just gonna put the top on. And once you do that if you see that you have just a little extra room, you could always add a little more soap. But I like to leave a little room so that I can mix it up really well. (liquid mixing) And I don’t tend to label these with what I put in it. Like I would just label it and say, “foam soap”.
And then I just wanna show you how cool this is. Cause, there it is. There’s our foam soap. That feels really nice to wash with it.
And just as a side note, I also take this with me when I travel. I just stick it into my travel bag. It’s made with plastic, so it’s not gonna break. And it’s non reactive. And I use it if I’m on the airplane, and just want to use my own soap. Or, if I am out at a restaurant.
Or just somewhere in public where I don’t necessarily want to use the harsh soap that they have in the public restrooms. I’ll just use this. So, anyway, mmm, smells incredible.
