diy liquid soap

Update on the diy liquid soap:

It took me a while to get the mix just right (I had to add more soap into it a few times to get it right... but keep in mind that I quadrupled the original recipe).

It's made up off 2 soaps I made and some olive based soap that was given to me.

I added a little bit of Thieves essential oil to the dispenser but think I'll add a bit more to up the fragrance factor of it (it still smells strongly of the calendula that I used in the baby soap).

I don't know how much you notice it in the photo, but ironically all my adding actually left me with quite thick soap. For now it's working, but I may have to add some hot water down the road to thin it out a bit if it thickens any more over time.

I stored the extra in canning jars and I probably have enough for the next year (go big or go home, right?)

My husband, who doesn't tend to like the bars of soap I made, actually really likes the liquid soap. So it's a hit that will likely be repeated down the road.

Is it cheaper than buying liquid soap? Not if you're buying cheap soap. But if you're buying high end, super fatty soaps, this is definitely much cheaper.
