I used to think that when washing with castile soap you had to use it straight from the bottle. I would notice afterward that my skin felt tight and didn’t soften for up to an hour. I would try it for a while, get discouraged and stop using it, try again after a little while, get discouraged….
This process went on (and off) for years until I got this bright idea that maybe, just maybe, I could dilute it and mix it with a skin softening agent. After a few tweaks I have found a DIY formula that is extremely safe, simple, inexpensive, and works great. Enjoy!
This formula is for a 12 ounce container with a foaming pump. If yours is a different size you should be able to modify this pretty easily (I do highly recommend the foaming dispensers- I feel like I use less with them thus saving even more money!). Here we go:
- 1/4 cup of your favorite type of Dr. Bronner’s castile soap ( I love Eucalyptus and Almond)
- 1 tbsp glycerine
- 8 ounces of water
Fill your container with the water first to avoid extreme bubbles while filling it up. Mix the castile and glycerine in a small container and pour it into the water. Give a very light shake to incorporate the ingredients.
