This is a great natural alternative to the industry standard harsh hand cleaners traditionally used by those who work with their hands and are exposing them to harsh chemicals. Utilizing the natural grease cutting properties of d-limonene together with fine pumice and french red clay, this soap will get rid of the dirt and grime without drying out the skin.

2. Add D-Limonene, pumice, red clay and preservative. Stir gently to combine.
3. Add Fragrance or essential oil if desired, stir to combine
4. Add water to create a smooth consistency one teaspoon at a time, gently stirring in between. This step can be omitted if the desired finished product is a stiff cream.
