Our skin is the bodies largest organ, it's no secret we need to look after it. Whatever we put on our skin gets absorbed by our body and potentially ends up in our blood stream.
It's important we only use non-toxic, clean and nourishing products on our body. That's why a DIY body wash is such a good swap to make. It's so simple to create your own with just a few simple ingredients.
The best part?
You get to create your own unique scents with the addition of whatever essential oils tickle your fancy.
Looking for something calming and soothing? Try Lavender, Cedarwood or Frankincense.
How about something to stimulate the senses and get you moving in the morning? Citrus oils and Peppermint will add a little spring to your step.
Below is our favourite DIY Body Wash recipe. If you don't have vegetable glycerine, it's totally ok to swap it out for another nourishing carrier oil - try coconut, evening primrose, rosehip, vitamin e or even just more Jojoba. Castile soap can be a bit drying so the addition of the oils helps to keep the skin silky soft.
200ml foam dispenser or pump bottle
120ml of unscented castile soap
20ml of jojoba oil
50ml of vegetable glycerine
Up to 60 drops of chosen essential oils
Add the jojoba oil and essential oils to the bottle
Shake to combine
Add the rest of the ingredients
Use in the shower to wash body
