Who loves to save money? I know I do. I also love making my own beauty products which can be somewhat complicated but there is nothing easier than making your own DIY Foaming Soap with this simple recipe. Rather than spending $4 or $5 for each bottle of soap at the grocery store, this basic recipe costs as little as 15 cents per bottle.
The really cool thing is that you can personalize the scent and color your foam soap to match your mood or decor of your bathroom. Feeling floral? Add rose water or lavender oil for a fresh spring scent. In the fall, you may want to try a heavier, musky scented soap such as sandalwood or eucalyptus. To change the color, simply add a few drops of soap making dyes. (I don’t recommend food dyes as they may stain your towels).

Mix it up!
For a large dispenser like mine, place 3 Tablespoons of liquid soap in the dispenser. Fill with very warm water and gently shake to dissolve the soap. Add a few drops of soap color and essential oil, if using.
Hint: Always fill your bottle with the warm water before adding the soap. If you add the soap first, it will foam up as you add the water.
Save even more money on your soap: I bought my foaming soap bottle at Dollar Tree for duh … a dollar. That bottle has lasted for at least six months now. The nice thing is they come in different colors so even if you don’t add soap dye, you still have a somewhat pretty soap bottle on your vanity.
