Nourishing DIY Body Wash

My sister has gotten really into natural foods and products over the past few years. When I was FaceTiming with her the other day, she was making a smoothie and put hemp in it. HEMP. In a smoothie. And then she drank it.

Though I stick with fruits and vegetables for my smoothies, I have adopted some clean living practices. This mainly pertains to food but I have also experimented with homemade cleaning and bath products. The recipes I’ve used have (surprisingly) called for ingredients that I already had on-hand.

While researching homemade body wash recipes, I was excited to find that I would only need to buy one ingredient (Castile soap) – everything else is a staple in my kitchen or bathroom.

Make your own DIY body wash with four simple, easy-to-find ingredients. So great for your skin (and your hair), this recipe is healthy, natural, nourishing, and refreshing. (And is smells good too.)

Nourishing DIY Body Wash

Ingredients
3/4 cup Castile soap
1/2 cup Silk Unsweetened Coconutmilk
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons vitamin E oil
10 drops essential oil (optional)
2 teaspoons vegetable glycerin (optional if your Castile soap includes it)

Instructions
Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight bottle. Pour onto a washcloth or loofah and work into a lather.

Notes & Ingredient Benefits
1. Castile soap should be easy to find in the bath/spa section of grocery or big box store. I love Dr. Bronner’s Castile soap because it has additional ingredients that prevent me from having to buy oils and vegetable glycerin. It also comes in a variety of scents – I love their peppermint scent which is so refreshing for a morning shower.

2. Vegetable glycerin creates the bubbles. If you use a Castile soap that doesn’t include vegetable glycerin or if you just want more bubbles, you can buy it separately.

5. Silk Unsweetened Coconutmilk is an excellent source of vitamin D and has no artificial colors or flavors. Coconut milk is also antibacterial and hydrates skin.

3. Honey is antibacterial, anti-fungal, and healing.

4. Vitamin E smoothes, moisturizes, and nourishes skin.
