Whilst the majority of household products contain chemicals that can seriously harm us, causing hormonal changes and illness, it’s good to know there are easy alternatives that are totally safe to use!
Containing ingredients you’re likely to already have (and if not, stock up on these asap and you’ll be good-to-go for months!), you’ll also save money by making your own hand wash, and live in the knowledge that you’re using something natural, healthy and side-effect free on yours and your family’s skin!
Honey is a natural antibacterial, and many essential oils hold antibacterial properties too. Castille soap is the bare bones of soap, and is suitable on the body and on hair, and the olive oil gives the wash a softening ability, leaving skin silky smooth and supple.
Ingredients (makes 2 small bottles or 1 jam jar full)
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 4 tbsp honey
- 3 tbsp castille soap
- 10 drops lavender oil
- 5 drops tea tree oil
Add all ingredients to your bottle or jar, and stir gently to combine all ingredients
Shake gently before using, and you’re all set!
