Homemade Frosted Pumpkin Hand Soap~
This smells heavenly. ~ It makes about a gallon for just pennies!
1 bar of Dove soap
1/4 cup of Borax
1/4 cup Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
4 cups of water
Grate a bar of soap with a hand cheese grater. Add to an old pan. ( so you can whisk it good) Next, add the water. Melt until it is totally dissolved. Slowly add Borax and Washing Soda. Cook on medium heat until it thickens like frosting~about 10 minutes.
Cool quickly ~ I cooled on my porch. As it cools keep whisking it. It will become very thick. Add enough hot water slowly after it cools until it reaches the consistency you wish.
I added Frosted Pumpkin scent and food coloring. You could use natural scents or leave as is if you like.
I buy all my scents form Natures Garden Candle Supplies online.
