Bathtime is successful when your kids get wetter than you do.

Natural Liquid Soap

2 cups of grated (cured) castile soap
1 tablespoon of palm oil
1 teaspoon vodka
1/2 tablespoon glycerin (optional)
1/2 teaspoon lemon essential oil (or any EO)
1/2 teaspoon grapefruit essential oil (or any EO)
1/2 teaspoon eucalyptus essential oil (or any EO)
2 1/2-3 cups of spring or distilled water
2 pump or foaming bottles

Over low heat and in a double-boiler pan, add grated
soap, palm oil, glycerin and water. Simmer until all the
soap has melted and is liquefied. Add vodka. Remove
from heat and let cool slightly before adding the
essential oils, mix well. Let cool completely before
pouring into bottle and check the consistency
(if too thick, add more spring water and stir).

Using a funnel, slowly pour liquid soap into chosen
bottle. Avoid any lumpy soap that may have not
melted from going into the funnel. Label and use.

Makes 2 - 8 oz bottles
