How to Make Thieves Foaming Hand Soap

Does the cost of Thieves Foaming Hand Soap have your eyes bulging from your head? Learn how to make Thieves Foaming Hand Soap and save yourself some money while you’re at it.

Last year my family began a journey to better health. We joined a gym. We’re eating better. And we are constantly looking for ways to live a cleaner, healthier life.

That led us to Young Living Essential Oils. One of my favorite products is Thieves Foaming Hand Soap. But, since it is a little on the pricey side, I decided to learn how to make Thieves foaming hand soap myself to save myself a few bucks.

After looking at the ingredient list on the back of the bottle and talking with the owner of a local health food store, we talked through several ways for how to make Thieves foaming hand soap. I’m sure there are other ways to make Thieves foaming hand soap, but this is the way I’ve tried and I love the results.

Thieves Foaming Hand Soap recipe

To make Thieves Foaming Hand Soap add Dr. Bronner’s soap to an empty foaming soap dispenser. I like to mix mine in a mason jar and then pour into the dispenser, but you can totally skip this part to save a step if you want. Add Thieves Essential Oil and Vitamin E Oil to the soap in the mason jar. Next, slowly add in the filtered water. If you add the water too quickly it will foam a lot and you’ll yield less soap.

Since I reuse the Young Living Thieves Foaming Hand Soap dispenser and it’s 8 ounces, I use 7 ounces of filtered water. Using 1 ounce less than your dispenser size should work perfectly. If you are using an unusually large dispenser, you will need to adjust the other ingredients accordingly.

Shake gently to combine the soap and oils. If you used a separate jar like I did, slowly add to the soap dispenser. Pump a few times to get the foaming action going.

For the last several months we have been using various oils to treat mild headaches, sniffles and sneezes, and as general supplements for a healthy lifestyle. I’ve learned so much about oils and how to use them in our day-to-day life. Since many oils do various things and help many different ailments and conditions, I’ve still got so much to learn though.

Because Thieves Essential Oil is a blend of essential oils that support the body’s natural defenses, it’s perfect for year-round use. I use it to make homemade cleaning products, as a natural air refresher, and as a supplement to support my immune system.

    Oh goodness I bet it SMELLS delicious too! I’ve never tried making my own, but I do prefer the foaming soap to regular and soap. Do you need a special kind of dispenser for that?

  4. 5

    Oh how cool! I’ve never made my own foaming hand soap before. This is a great way to use those oils.

  5. 6

    I love essential oils and am so intrigued by this soap!! I’d love to make some. It sounds good for the dryness of winter too.

    It is such a great idea to make hand soap with essential oil. I bet this one is wonderful.

    I would love to see how Thieves oil smells, since this is the first I am hearing about this particular oil. I have numerous friends who swear by essential oils and anything all natural is a win in my book.

      I think it smells like Christmas (it has some cloves and rosemary oils mixed in). I love Young Living Oils – I started doing the whole sale thing too because Young Living sends you free oils each month if you do their rewards program. LOVE IT!

      And …Thank you Crystal for the recipe!

    Good old Bronner’s soap–it has been around for ages!! This does sound like a relatively easy way to make your own foaming soap. I have always loved using essential oils–especially in a diffuser!

    I clean my kitchen floors with a mix of water and vinegar, and add grapefruit and basil essential oils to make my house smell amazing. I haven’t tried making hand soap, but I love the idea of doing that and using better options. Can’t wait to give yours a try.

  25. 27

    Awesome, I will totally try this! My sister is addicted to the essential oils and I love Dr. Bronner’s!

  26. 28

    What happens if you leave out the Vitamin E oil?

  27. 30

    I recently bought Dr. Bronner’s Cherry Blossom liquid Castile soap. I’m wondering, would the smell of the thieves essential oil mix well with a cherry smell do you think? I’ve never smelled Thieves, what does it smell like? I had to drive a ways to get the soap otherwise I’d use non scented, but I’m trying to make this foaming hand wash antibacterial hence the thieves. Thanks for the sharing of the recipe! Any advice/comments welcomed.

      Hi Shayleana,

      Thieves oil is a combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils. It has a rich, spicy aroma. I’ve never tried it with the Cherry Blossom soap so I’m not sure if the two would smell good together. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

    My husband doesn’t like foaming hand soap, is there a way I can alter this recipe to make it non-foaming? Thank you!!

    • 33

      It’s all about the dispenser
      I have made this and accidentally put it in a non foam dispenser and it was not foamy.
      – Love Young Living recipes

  29. 34

    Do you have a lavender mint version? I’m not sure proportion wise to use of the oils…

  30. 35

    LOVE THIS! I made it today and it smells great and cleans great as well! Not to mention we are saving money by making our own. Thank you for this recipe!

    Sandy Mayfield says:

    Definitely going to have to try this! It seems fun and easy to make and my kids would love it. Then I can keep all of my Molton Brown hand soaps from b-glowing to myself! HAHA

  32. 38

    What are the proportions of the Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils that you would use to mimic your own “theives” oil?
