Homemade Body Wash

This homemade body wash is a simple, non toxic easy to make recipe you can make yourself with natural ingredients and essential oils.

Why should you make your own personal care products? Well, you can avoid harmful chemicals by using natural ingredients, reuse containers and it saves you money!

Organic castor oil is known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It helps to soften and hydrate the skin leaving it smooth and supple.

Organic castile soap contains only vegetable-based ingredients such as coconut oil, olive oil, hemp oil and jojoba oil.

Ingredients

  1. 3/4 cup Organic Castile Liquid Soap
  2. 1/4 cup Organic Castor Oil
  3. 15 drops Lime Essential Oil
  4. 15 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil

If you like citrusy fragrance, use a blend of lime and grapefruit. You can use orange or lemon instead aswell.

Add organic castor oil to the castile soap and essential oils. Stir slowly with a spoon. Pour the mixture into a container/bottle of your choice using a funnel if required. You can use this homemade body wash for a complete body and skin care treatment while in the shower or bathing.

Instructions

  1. Carefully mix all ingredients by hand with a spoon in a glass liquid measuring cup. Do not use a blender, whisk or had mixer as this will create bubbles and make it impossible to get into a container.
  2. Pour into a bottle and use in the shower as a body wash.

Note: This recipe will last for several months at room temperature.
