    Keep adding more SLS until you get the foaming you want. Then add salt to thicken.

    Remove the propylene glycol first. Can't see the point in that.

    Agree with @Bobzchemist, the simplest amd best suggestion.

    The propylene glycol will function as a solubilizer for the Eucalyptus Oil and boost preservation efficacy.  I use a variant in my cleansers and it has no discernible, deleterious effect on foaming.
