How To make Foaming Soap: Supplies
The first thing you need is an aerating dispenser bottle.
Ours came from re-using a container from another brand. Method makes one, and I reused a bottle from Clean Well for a year. After a year or so you will notice the bottle begins to have a “skunky” smell, that is when I know it is time to replace the bottle with a new one. If there are effective ways to sanitize and remove the smell from the bottle that you know – please share because I’ve yet to figure it out!
Once you have your aerating dispenser bottle – you can make a variety of foaming soaps. The recipe we’re sharing is a Vanilla Orange Foaming Handsoap, but don’t be shy, select your favorite essential oils for fragrance and adding small amounts of your favorite oil for moisturizing.

How to make foaming soap: Instructions
Combine the ingredients and in a measuring cup and use a funnel to pour into the dispenser. Soap will will dispense in an nice foaming lather… and if you kids use the whole bottle in 3 days, you won’t be furious!
Providing you go through your foaming handsoap quickly, the combination of distilled water and the vitamin e should suffice as a preservative, if you need to make this last longer or want to give it as a gift, you’ll want to use a preservative like Germaben 11 or Liquid Germall Plus, I know this is not perfectly natural, but it is preferable to the fungi and bacteria that can grow in the water.
