Homemade hand soap

Most of us know by now that making homemade cleaners and soaps is better for our health than store-bought bottles filled with chemicals (here's why you really don't need to use antibacterial soaps or sanitizers to stay germ-free).

I love that this gift tag lists the ingredients so your recipients can make it themselves once they run out.
