Changing out the hand soap we use in our house was an early non-toxic swap for me. As concerned as I am about ingredients in food and what we put in our bodies, I am slowly starting to make changes for what we put ON our bodies as well. We have been making our own lotion, breath spray and sugar scrub and are enjoying our experimenting with Young Living Essential Oils. Are you feeling overwhelmed with the whole swapping process? No worries, we created this awesome PDF to help guide you through!
You know what ingredient is in a lot of liquid hand soaps? Triclosan. And guess what, The American Medical Association doesn't recommend use of Triclosan in people's homes as it may lead to antibiotic resistance of certain bacteria! Yikes!!
I have started using more natural hand soaps at home, in particular Thieves Foaming Hand Soap from Young Living and feel great about my choice. But what to do when out in public and faced with gross soap with questionable ingredients? Try this portable foaming hand soap recipe! It is great and easy to toss in your purse, beach bag, diaper bag, whatever.
You can easily purchase larger foaming hand soap dispensers and follow the same concept to make your soap for home as well.
