All Natural Liquid Soap

An all natural, very mild liquid soap for everyday use in your kitchen or bath. (Makes 2 - 8 oz bottles)

1/2 teaspoon lemon essential oil (or any EO)

1/2 teaspoon eucalyptus essential oil (or any EO)
2 1/2-3 cups of spring or distilled water

Over low heat and in a double-boiler, 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 bottle. Keep any lumpy soap that may not have melted from going into the funnel. Label and use.
