Tip #6: Add essential oils to your soap dispenser. I usually can't afford to buy all-natural, super-expensive liquid soap, so whenever I refill our soap dispensers, I try to remember to add a few drops of an oil of my choice. This past time, I chose lavender.
I love lavender because it smells light and fresh and is pretty gentle as far as essential oils go. Even though it's gentle, it's one of the few oils (according to The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy: Over 600 Natural, Non-Toxic and Fragrant Recipes to Create Health Beauty a Safe Home Environment) that has all 4 of the following properties: antibiotic, antiseptic, antiviral, and antifungal. Great oil in my opinion!
Anyway, after adding a few drops of oil to the soap (I like to use clear), I stir, swirl, and shake to evenly disperse the oil. The soap appears a little cloudy after this, but the cloudiness eventually goes away.
