How To Make Homemade Lemon Handwash

This is a wonderful recipe for a homemade handwash. With the main ingredients being rosemary and lemon. Both ingredients have fantastic antibacterial properties as well as smelling amazing of course. The beautiful handwash smell helps to hide any unwanted aromas.

Here we use a rosemary infusion as one of the main ingredients in our homemade lemon handwash recipe. But you could actually customise this recipe and use a different herb. Try experimenting and creating your own version. Note different herbs will have different properties. Calendula and chamomile are good for sensitive skins, as is lavender. We have also included glycerin and aloe vera for its skin soothing and moisture reducing properties.

  • 3 tablespoons or 45ml of Plantapon
  • half teaspoon or 2.5ml of thickener, moisture-restoring agent Lamesoft
  • 3 tablespoons or 45ml cooled Rosemary infusion
  • half teaspoon  or 2.5ml glycerin
  • 1 teaspoon or 5ml of aloe vera
  • 20 drops of preservative
  • 10 drop rosemary essential oil
  • 10 drop of lavender essential oil
  • 20 drops lemon essential oil
  • 10-40 drops lactic acid 

Equipment

  • 2 glass jugs
  • tea strainer
  • metal spoon

Rosemary Infusion Step Three

Strain the mixture through a tea strainer and we can discard the rosemary now. Now we are left with a rosemary infusion we can use in our homemade lemon handwash recipe.

We can keep any infusion we have left over. It will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days.

Combine The Contents Of The Two Glass Jars

Step Three

Now we can carefully and slowly start  pouring the rosemary influsion mixture into the Plantpon and Lamesoft mixture. As you pour carefully mix all the ingredients together. Make sure they are blending well and do not stir too vigorously, we do not want to introduce air into the mixture.

Finally Add In The Essential Oils To Our Homemade Lemon Handwash

Step Four

Finally add the last ingredients. Add the preservative and the essential oils. Make sure to mix again carefully. Again we do not want to create any foam or add air to the mixture.

Now We Can Adjust The pH Level Of Our Homemade Lemon Handwash

Step Five

Now use one of your pH test strips and gently dip it into the combined mixture. Once the strip has changed colour check it again the colour scale and read the pH level. If the pH is above pH 5.5, then we need to add a few drops of lactic acid.

Retest The pH Level of Our Handmade Lemon Handwash

Step Six

Test the pH levels again with a new strip. Keep adding a drop of lactic acid and then retesting. Once the pH come down below the 5.5 level the homemade lemon handwash should start to thicken up.

Finish Making Our Handmade Lemon Handwash

Step Seven

To finish making our handwash all we need to do is carefully pour it into the bottle we have prepared. It is a good idea to label the bottle with all the ingredients and also the date of creation.
