Do you love lathering up in the shower with an exotically scented body wash? It soothes your skin and depending on the scent, invigorates or relaxes you. It’s great… except for the price. Stores like Bath & Body Works try to lure you in with great deals (buy 3 get 2 free anyone?) but at the end of the day, you’re still paying a pretty penny for sweet smelling soap. What if you could get the luxury without the guilt? Yep, save money by learning how to make body wash at home.
The process of how to make body wash isn’t difficult at all. You probably think there’s a lot of chemicals and “cooking” involved but you’re wrong. In fact the only tool you need is a microwave. See, that’s not too intimidating is it?
What’s great about learning how to make body wash at home is you can have any scent you’d like (by simply using different essential oils). Go for something relaxing like lavender or get creative and mix different essential oils for your own custom scent.
Once you know how to make body wash, you can easily whip up a batch or two to give as gifts around the holidays or for any occasion.
Bonus: The coconut oil and vitamin E oil in this body wash recipe are excellent for your skin. Not only are you learning how to make body wash that is a treat for your nose, but it’s also a vacation for your skin.
How to Make Body Wash
1. Melt coconut oil in microwave, 20-30 seconds should do it.
2. Combine with castile soap, almond oil, vitamin E oil, and water.
3. Transfer to container using a funnel.
Note: Consider splitting between 2 small containers so that you can make 2 different scents.
4. Add essential oils and shake well to combine.
If you find this mixture too oily for your body, simply add water a ½ cup at a time until you achieve a comfortable texture for your skin.
Note: If your bathroom is cold you may find your coconut oil solidifies, simply run under hot water and shake well before each use.
Now that you know how to make body wash at home, share some of your favorite essential oils to use in the comments.
