Homemade body wash is the best way to ensure you know what products you are putting on your skin! This recipe is perfect for those with sensitive skin or those that are just wanting to get back to the basics when it comes to skin care.
The best part about this recipe is how fast and easy it is!
You can have your body wash done start to finish in less than 5 minutes!
- In a double boiler or microwave safe dish, melt the coconut oil and Shea butter completely.
- Combine all ingredients in a medium size bowl with a pour spout
- Mix until blended thoroughly
- Pour into your clean empty bottle.
- Shake well before each use.
Tip 1: Use an old soap bottle instead of purchasing a new one. Reduce, reuse, recycle, right?
Tip 2: Use as much or little of the essential oils depending on your preference.
Tip 3: Be sure to mix your body wash with each use. The Shea butter and coconut oil will separate. Shake the bottle a few time and you are good to go.
Tip 4: A little goes a long way. Because this wash does not have any added water or extra fillers it does not take much to produce enough lather for a full body clean.
I use this body wash for my morning showers because I really like the energizing properties of eucalyptus and peppermint. It also has a de-stressing property which makes this blend the perfect way to begin your day!
