Essential Oils Recipes

Thieves Hand Soap


I love Thieves hand soap!!  My whole family actually does and as soon as they run out they are all saying we need you to make more.

Did you know?  Thieves® essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals they used while robbing the dead and dying. Young Living’s one-of-a-kind Thieves blend, crafted in the spirit of that legendary combination, can be found in all of our Thieves products.

Let’s grab what you need:

  • Young Living Thieves Essential Oil or Young Living Thieves Vitality either will work
  • Dr. Bronner’s Organic Castile Liquid Soap Unscented
  • Vegetable Glycerin
  • Distilled Water
  • Old/New Foam Hand Soap Dispenser (I reuse a bunch of mine but was able to snag these glass ones from Marshalls recently)

Add 2 Tablespoons Castile, 1/2 Teaspoon Vegetable Glycerin and 6-8 drops of Thieves to empty soap dispenser.  Fill with distilled water leaving room for the dispenser to be added back on and tightened.


Swirl and/or shake it up to mix.  Occasionally if not used regularly you will need to re-shake or swirl the container to remix the ingredients.

Such a cost effective way to make your own soap!!


I understand realistically we are not all DIYers or we just don’t have the time this week – no fear Young Living has this hand soap already ready to go in refills and new Thieves Hand Soap dispensers.  Each month I get my Young Living Essential Rewards (ER) subscription box that has some ER only items like this  amazing combo of Thieves items that includes the foaming hand soap.  With ER you get to change up what you want each month and there are a million options:

Thieves Essential Rewards (Item #3697) Combo:3697

  • Thieves essential oil blend, 15 ml
  • Thieves AromaBright Toothpaste, 4 oz.
  • Thieves Household Cleaner, 14.4 oz., 2 bottles
  • Thieves Mouthwash, 8 oz.
  • Thieves Foaming Hand Soap, 8 oz., 2 bottles
  • Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier, 1 oz., 2 bottles
  • Thieves Spray, 1 oz.

*You will only see this combo option when working through your ER subscription order, it will not be in the quick order option.


Another hand soap option is the Young Living Lavender Hand Soap available in singles or 3 packs.  There is not a refill option on this one, however you can easily make this using the same recipe above just substitute in Young Living Lavender Essential Oil or Lavender Vitality.



Hope you enjoy making your own hand soap!!
