Today I made my own Natural ‘Good for You’ Body Wash!
Many body soaps are filled with toxic additives. Switching over to a home-made body wash is not only better for the natural balance of your skin but also benefits your wallet!
I was so excited because I finally got a glass dispenser for my DIY body wash, pictured on the bottom left.
A glass mason jar dispenser, how perfect.
I bought it already made ( from CostPlus World Market) and it actually had a natural dish soap in it, but I emptied it out (saved the dish soap to use of course). It actually doesn’t seem too difficult to make this dispenser on your own! I think I will try making my own and let you know how it goes.
Ingredients for DIY Natural Body Wash
- Unscented Castile Soap (I used Dr. Bronner’s Unscented Castile Soap)
- Melted Coconut Oil
- Vegetable Glycerin
- Warmed Filtered Water
- Your Favorite Essential Oil for scent
The amounts I used filled my jar a little more than 1/2 way as pictured above on the right. I wanted to try out the consistency and mix before I made a big batch.
- 1/2 cup Castile Soap
- 1/4 Coconut Oil ( if it is hardened in a jar, melt in in the microwave for approx. 20 seconds)
- 1/4 cup Vegetable Glycerin
- 1/2 cup of warmed filtered water
- 1-2tsp of essential oil
I used one measuring cup the entire time and I added the water at the end to try to flush everything that was left in the measuring cup.
I feel so good knowing I’m treating my body well on the inside and the out, and I hope finding a more natural way of living gives you the happiness and satisfaction it provides me.
