The men in my life tend to come home from work with hands so dirty they don’t just defy belief, they defy soap! Wash as they may, sometimes dirt, grease, paint, and other tenacious substances require more than a gentle hand washing to be eliminated. Chock full of exfoliating Walnut Shell Powder and Green Illite Clay, this all natural Castille based liquid soap scrub is sure to help even the grubbiest hands get clean.
Super Scrub Hand Wash
Aloe Castille Shower Gel Base – 2 Ounces
Liquid Castille Soap Base – 2 Ounces
Green Illite Clay – 2 Tablespoons
Walnut Shell Powder, Fine – 2 Tablespoons
Orange Essential Oil – 1/2 teaspoon or 3 ml
Peppermint Essential Oil – 1/2 teaspoon or 3 ml
1 – 2 Teaspoons of Distilled Water
Add 2 Tablespoons of Green Illite Clay to a small bowl. Slowly add the water to the clay, mixing constantly. After the water is evenly distributed in the clay, slowly add the Liquid Castille Soap Base, mixing constantly. When the clay has been fully dispersed (without any clumps) add the Aloe Castille Shower Gel Base. Next, add the Walnut Shell Powder and the Essential Oils. Mix well, then carefully pour the mixture into a 4 ounce bottle with either a pump or a disc cap.
Packaging & Usage
I packaged this recipe in a 4 ounce PET Boston Round Bottle with a Black Pump. The pump does stick now and then, but overall the mixture flows through the pump easily. You could also try packaging this soap scrub in a PET or HDPE Bottle with a Snap or Disc Cap. To use, simply massage a small amount onto wet hands before rinsing away. The scrub should help to release tenacious dirt and grime while leaving the hands feeling clean and refreshed.
