- 1 c. filtered water
- ½ c. castile soap
- 4 tbsp carrier oil (such as almond or jojoba oil)
- 2 tsp guar gum
- 15 drops essential oil of choice (lavender, orange, peppermint are good choices)
Mix carrier oil and guar gum until it’s an even consistency. This is an important step: guar gum has to be mixed with the oil first or your soap will be chunky. Next, mix the remaining ingredients and keep stirring. After a few minutes, the mixture will thicken into a gel.
