Mixing Essential Oils with Dr. Bronner’s

If you’ve been dreaming of combining your favourite ECO. Modern Essentials scent with Dr. Bronner’s soap, then our Baby Unscented Pure-Castile Liquid Soap is the perfect place to start! It contains no essential oils and double the amount of olive oil, making it the perfect soap for both washing your body and face as well as all  household cleaning needs!


 Once you’ve settled on the scent, you can either mix the essential oil directly into the Baby Unscented, or can add the essential oil into your other DIY dilutions. Mixing directly might lead to some separation between the oils and the soap, so you'll want to give it a good shake before each use. If you want to avoid separation altogether, here are a few mixing tips!

-Heat the soap in a stainless-steel pot over low heat for about 5 minutes
-Add the soap and oil(s) together in an immersion blender
-Blend for 1 minute
-Stir occasionally while soap cools
-Once cooled, pour blended soap into a bottle
