Fear not! You can create liquid soap out of the bubbles & squeaky clean kit, just using water; in just a few easy additional steps….
Once you’ve melted 100g of your melt and pour base; add it to 2 litres of boiled water (in a heat proof container of course, either a plastic jug or thick glass bowl would work!
Now stir it up.
The mixture will begin to congeal – or to go gloopy – this can take up to 24 hours, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t see immediate progress!!
Now is the time to add your essential oils. We’d recommend not adding either the salt or lavender buds to this mixture though – it’ll clog your pump. Do it if you’re planning on storing the liquid soap in a jar though, it just feels amazing washing your hands.
Mix it all up again, and voila!
Now to decanter it into it’s forever home – either use a funnel to pour the liquid soap into your pump bottle (reduce reuse recycle!) or any form of jar works too just try to leave about one inch at the top in order to add a little water to get the proper consistency (if you need to).
Both peppermint & lavender have natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that are concentrated into their essential oils so this would be your anti-bacterial hand wash.
If you’re an oils enthusiast like us and you want to have a super anti-bacterial soap, there’s other oils you could add in – we love experimenting. Some of our favourites are Teatree, Cedarwood, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass or Lemon.
