Make your own foaming hand soap refill

Every year I get sucked into buying foaming hand soap at Bath and Body Works.
The promotion they run isn't that great, but they do have some pretty amazing scents to choose from and for some reason I can justify spending $4 a bottle on the soap.
I don't know why, because I can make my own foaming hand soap for pennies!

The catch is, you will need a container that has the foaming pump.
I'm using one that I had that just ran out.
You will also need only a small amount of regular soap
{this jar was bought at the Dollar Tree and would make about seven refills for the foaming hand soap bottle you see on the left}
and if you want, you can also use a few drops of essential oils.
I'm using peppermint.

Take the lids off of your soap containers, 
and pour your liquid soap into your foaming soap container.
You won't need much, just around 1/3 of a cup.
Add 5-7 drops of your essential oils

and slowly 
{this is key so that your soap doesn't foam up like crazy as you fill it!}
fill your bottle full with water.
Put the lid on and give your soap jar a shake.

Easy and inexpensive!

For less than a quarter I have made myself a foaming soap refill.
