This past weekend my daughter and I went to a mall. My kids have been to more glaciers and oceans than malls so it was quite a novel experience for our nine year old child.
It was just the two of us and I let her take the lead. One of the stores she wanted to go in was full of soaps and lotions. When we walked in the store I was overwhelmed with fragrances and loud music, but she absolutely loved it. When she is a teenager I am sure she'll spend her money on trendy fragrance-filled synthetic products just as I did, but for now, in her childhood, she will experience rainy days home with her mama creating homemade soaps with essential oils.
Here's one for today:
Sweet Orange-Peppermint Foaming Hand Soap
Materials & Ingredients:
Recycled/Reusable 8-9 oz. Foaming Soap Dispenser
3 T. Unscented Castile Soap
1 tsp. olive oil
10 drops vitamin E oil
5 drops sweet orange essential oil
3 drops peppermint essential oil
Fill the foaming soap dispenser with water, leaving a one inch head space. Add castile soap, olive oil, vitamin E oil and essential oils. Screw on pump and shake to mix.
It's as easy as that!
