Foaming soap is one way I like to use my essential oils every day. I LOVE foaming soap, it is easy to make and my kids enjoy using it (hint: when kids enjoy it, they will wash!).
This recipe is inspired from the pumpkin spice craze that is going around at this time of year. Even I am not immune, I have been enjoying pumpkin spice sugar scrub in the shower and eating pumpkin spice kind bars (yum!).
Our recipe is all natural, smells amazing, and the essential oils will help keep germs off your hands during the fall season. What’s not to love about that?
Here are the essential oils used in this recipe:
Cinnamon Leaf: While I love the aroma of cinnamon bark more, cinnamon leaf is gentler on skin so that is what I am using in this recipe. Cinnamon leaf essential oil warms and inspires. It is a powerful immune supportive oil that can help reduce the presence of unwanted fungal or viral activity. Avoid prolonged use.
Clove Bud: Perfect oil for fall and winter, clove essential oil is a wonderful and strong oil. A drop or two of this oil really goes a long way. Its aroma can convey a warm and sincere feeling. Avoid prolonged use.
Ginger: Ginger essential oil warms and stabilizes. It is well known for being an excellent digestive aid. The aroma can sharpen the senses and promote courage and confidence.
Nutmeg: The sharp and spicy aroma of nutmeg essential oil is true to the scent of the spice used in baking. It is a fall favorite that you will find it in all types of holiday DIY recipes.

I personally like to use my DIY products with water within a month so that way my homemade products stay fresh. That's the whole point of making homemade right? To have fresh, natural and chemical free beauty products. I like to place a small circle sticker at the bottom of my homemade items with the date I made it so there is no guessing.
