How to Make Essential Oils Hand Soap - Autumn Bliss

This is a really simple recipe for Essential Oils Hand Soap scented with Autumn Bliss. Autumn Bliss is an essential oil blend of Sweet Orange, Cedarwood, and Ginger.

I LOVE easy DIY recipes and you will see how simple this one is. Homemade hand soaps are definitely a great way to include essential oils into your daily routine.

Essential Oils for Hand Soap

There are many essential oils that can be used for hand soaps. For this recipe I used Autumn Bliss blend, it is a wonderful fall aroma that I usually diffuse (I included the diffuser blend at the bottom of the post).

Here are the three oils that make up this blend:

Sweet Orange (or Wild Orange)

  • The sweet, fruity aroma is relaxing and uplifting
  • Promotes a bright and cheery optimistic feeling
  • Restores physical energy
  • Provides courage when overwhelmed
  • Fosters creativity and inspires abundance

Cedarwood (any type)

  • Cedarwood offers a clean and woody aroma
  • Increases endurance during difficult times
  • Supports confidence in challenging times
  • Calms stress and promotes relaxation
  • Acts as a sedative on the nervous system

Ginger

  • Ginger essential oil warms and stabilizes
  • It's fresh, spicy aroma can calm anxious feelings
  • Well known for being an excellent digestive aid
  • Sharpens the senses
  • Promotes courage and confidence

Hand Soap Ingredients

Aloe Vera Gel

- Aloe vera gel leaves skin soft and silky without a sticky residue. Its gentle nature makes it great to use as a cleanser or include in homemade soap recipes.

- Aloe vera gel is not thick like a hair gel would be. It is actually a clear and thin, watery liquid... this is normal. It is not the same as aloe vera jelly.

- I don't buy my aloe vera gel from the store, many times those versions have additives. Plus, true aloe vera gel isn't green or thick like I mentioned above.

- We only recommend stuff we use and love. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, we may earn a small commission if you buy through our links at no extra cost to you. Here is my favorite aloe vera gel:

Castile Soap

- Castile soap lifts dirt and grime, cuts grease and tough stains. This is a must have for any DIY soap recipes.

- Perfect for hand soaps, laundry detergents, homemade dish soaps and other natural cleaning recipes.

- Dr. Bronners is my favorite unscented castile soap. It contains no synthetic preservatives, no detergents and no foaming agents. It also lasts a while because it is concentrated and is very cost effective cleanser.
