DIY essential oils soap

The “dirty” ingredients in most store-bought soaps is enough to make your skin crawl, literally. And there is a cheap and simple DIY solution to purge the toxic from your house. I calculated the cost to using the recipe below: 50 cents per oil, 49 cents for the castile soap and 54 cents for the jojoba oil. You can reuse a mason jar or empty soap container or buy one at Home Goods or Marshalls for $3-$4. So all in you’re looking at $2 (without the jar) per 8 oz of soap. Sign me up!



3Tbsp Dr Bronner Unscented Castile Soap

5 drops Frankincense

5 drops Lavender

1 tsp Jojoba oil *you can substitute Fractionated Coconut Oil or Olive Oil

Distilled Water

Empty Glass Pump top bottle (soap/lotion sized)



Add the Dr. Bronner Castile soap, Frankincense, Lavender and jojoba oil into the empty glass soap bottle. Top off with distilled water, leaving a little room at the top for air.

Shake to combine and enjoy!


There are hundreds of different oil combinations you can try. Pinterest is the place to go to find so many creative options. Happy soap making!
