DIY Holiday Peppermint Handsoap

Looking to bring the holidays into your home, or perhaps the perfect gift idea? This simple DIY soap recipe featuring Paradise Springs Essential Oils is a simple and festive way to bring in the holiday season. We include cooling, antibacterial Peppermint Oil with hydrating Jojoba Oil and vitamin E oil in this recipe to keep hands hydrated and spirits cheerful.



Peppermint Oil

Peppermint is a classic essential oil with a wide variety of uses. Peppermint is often added to soap to work as an antiseptic skin cleanser. It also contains menthol, giving it a great cooling sensation on skin. It can also release itchiness and irritation within moderation, making it great for those dry winter months ahead. And, lets not forget: this essential oil classic is traditionally associated with candy canes, holiday food recipes and other inviting scents of the season.  

Hydrating Jojoba

Jojoba Oil is a carrier oil derived from nuts produced by the Jojoba shrub. Carrier oils are neutral oils that can be used as a base to dilute and "carry" concentrated essential oils, protecting skin so that it does not come into direct contact with concentrated extracts. Additionally, it acts as a humectant to seal skin with a protective barrier to lock in moisture, mixing perfectly with the salt in this recipe to make a gentle, exfoliating scrub. Jojoba Oil is also hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic, meaning its structure imitates the skin's natural oils to keep pores free from buildup. We also include vitamin E in this recipe to allow long-lasting moisture retention between skin cells.

What You'll Need

To Make

In a mason jar or recycled soap dispenser, add the water first. This will prevent bubbles from forming. Add the liquid castile soap, followed by the oils. Cover with a lid and shake to mix.

Use & Storage

To use, simply shake the soap dispenser gently before use, as the oils may settle. Dispense a few pumps onto hands and wash thoroughly. Store on bathroom or kitchen countertops for the whole family to enjoy.
