DIY Thieves Foam Soap

We love this homemade foam soap so much that we have a dispenser of it at every sink in the house!  Although, I must confess, each one smells slightly different since I let the kids pick an additional essential oil to add to the mix. One of our favorite oils to add? Tangerine. It smells AMAZING with the Thieves. Try it out and let me know what you think! Below is the recipe, along with my affiliate links for purchasing materials. Enjoy!

What you need:

Foam soap dispenser (Love the one linked here, but you may also reuse one you already have or grab one from the dollar store!)
Vitamin E Oil (optional) 
Filtered water 


Fill 2/3 of your soap dispenser with filtered water and then most of the rest of the way with Castile Soap (leaving a bit of room for the oils).  Add about 7-10 drops of Thieves essential oil and 1/2 tsp of vitamin E oil (optional).  Shake well and pump!

**Play around with scents by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil, in addition to the Thieves!**

To make an essential oil purchase via Young Living, please follow the instructions here
A select few essential oils are also available for purchase at the Swanky Mel Essential Oil Shop!

Not all essential oils can be taken internally. It can be dangerous to take essential oils internally unless they are food grade or 

general regarded as safe. (GRAS). The only brand I recommend taking internally is Young Living
