I love making homemade hand soap… it’s quick, easy, healthy, and really inexpensive too!
I started making my own homemade hand soap shortly after I had kids because I wanted to use less harmful chemicals in daily life and organic soap was really expensive!
Now, I still make it because it’s actually SO CONVENIENT and CHEAP!
I buy a 32oz bottle of Dr. Bronner’s on Amazon for $16 and it lasts a really long time… that one bottle usually lasts close to a year. Crazy.
So here’s my recipe for this super easy, clean homemade hand soap:

Easy Homemade Hand Soap Recipe
- 1-2 tsp of Castile Soap (I use Dr. Bronner’s)
- Filtered or Distilled Water (I use filtered water from my side fridge dispenser)
- Foam Pump Dispenser
- Essential Oils (Optional)
Fill the foam soap dispenser almost full with filtered or distilled water and then add 1-2 tsp of castile soap to the top.
That’s it. It’s super easy.
I reuse the same pump dispenser (one I had from a store bought soap) and just fill with my water from my fridge dispenser and add a few squirts of castile soap.
You can also use essential oils to add a little scent and fun to it, but it’s totally optional.
It takes me less than 30 seconds, and I really run to the store to buy soap.
And, even better, castile soap is available on Amazon and it’s the price I normally pay.
If you figure $16 a bottle for castile soap with 2 tsp each time, you’re spending around .16 per refill without figuring the cost of changing your filter. But it’s still cheaper than the store bough stuff.
Super easy, super green, and super cheap.
There you go. Happy hand soap making!
