A few days ago I experimented making some liquid soap; it is so easy to do actually. One bar of natural soap actually makes a LOT of liquid soap; so it is very economical. Make sure you choose a natural, handmade soap that is wrapped in eco friendly packaging. Liquid soap is a very convenient thing to have in any bathroom, kitchen & laundry. Start by saving & recycling your pump packs & bottles so that you have something to put it in. Imagine how much landfill is spared by spending a few minutes to grate a natural soap bar.
With just one batch of the recipe you will have enough to share with a friend, a bottle for the kitchen, another for the bathroom & an extra one for the laundry. Experiment with different types of of natural soaps. I quite like using a vegetable oil based soaps – olive oil, almond or coconut oil. Use it for the obvious hand washing, but also worth a try for washing dishes and hand washing any delicate clothing.
1 bar of natural soap without colourings or chemical fragrances, roughly grated
1-2 litres approximately of filtered boiling water (or natural rain water)
essential oil to scent, optional
Grate the soap into a heatproof bowl and pour over the soap bar. Stir for a while then set aside to cool completely. Stir occasionally. Add more boiling water as required. Each soap bar will absorb a different amount of water so you the goal is to get the soap to the point of staying liquid when cooled. It may take a few additions of adding boiling water to achieve this.
Scent with essential oil if desired. A little lemon oil or lemon myrtle oil is nice.
Pour through a funnel into your pump bottle/ squeeze bottles.
love & light
