10 Simple Homemade Body Wash Recipes

Homemade skincare products are trending right now. They’re particularly in style among those that do not want chemicals meddling with the chemistry of their skin and those who are bitten by the art and craft bug. The best factor about this trend is that you just most likely have a lot of the ingredients right at house. And the ones you don’t are readily available in stores. Right here, I’ve shared some very easy homemade body wash recipes with easy ingredients.

You’ll need a number of easy ingredients to make a natural body wash at house. Let’s check out

Castile Soap And Glycerin

Olive Oil Soap Suitable for people with skin problems. Nourishes the skin soft and moist.

Ingredients
  • ½ cup liquid castile soap
  • 2 tablespoons fractionated coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons glycerin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vitamin E oil
  • 20-30 drops citrus essential oil (you can use lemon, orange, or grapefruit oil)
Method
  1. Pour all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bottle with a pump dispenser.
  3. Shake it well before using.
Essential oils and olive oil usually have a shelf life of 2 years. However, glycerin has a shelf life of about a year. So, it’s better to use your body wash within a year.

 

Coconut Milk

  2. Add honey, glycerin, jojoba oil, and essential oils.

Jojoba oil hardly ever goes rancid as it is not exactly an oil but the wax extracted from the jojoba tree. It has an indefinite shelf life. However, glycerin and essential oils have a shelf life of 1-2 years. So, try to use this body wash within a year.
