This is seriously the easiest recipe ever to make!  It's not an exact science - you don't even really need the measurements and you can use any size foaming pump bottle.
See your bottle?  Visualise a 1/3 at the bottom.  Pour castile soap to 2/3 of that mark, then fractionated coconut oil to the mark. Then top up with water.  So easy!

    Love this recipe! Use it all the time and nice to “mix up” the falvours/scents each time I need to make a new batch!
    My poor hands get so dry and cracked using store bought hand wash!
    Highly Recommend! And super easy to make!

    1. I’m so glad you love the recipe Brylie! It’s true, you won’t ever go back to store bought soaps once you experience how quick, easy and economical it is to make a healthy alternative 🙂
