I absolutely love the Bath and Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint Body wash, and decided to try it myself. I made two different batches and happy to report, it smells and feels great when I use this body wash with a loofah.
INGREDIENTS: Pure Coconut Oil (you can get it at your local grocery store or at amazon), Vitamin E oil (can get at local grocery store, or health food store but make sure it is pure), Raw Honey (I bought mine on amazon),
essential oils (see below- you can get them from me or become a wholesale member with Young Living), and Castile Soap (grocery store, health food store, or online). I use the Baby Unscented Castile Soap because I do not want hemp in mine.
HOW TO MAKE IT: I used 1/4 cup of coconut oil (melted over a double boiler). 1/4 cup of raw honey (stir it into the melted coconut oil and keep melting it), add in 1 tsp of Vitamin E, and all your essential oils. It will look like the jar does (see picture on right) and it looks separated. I used 2/3 cup castile soap and poured that into my empty bottle. I added my warm mixture into this and it mixed in well once I poured it and it hardened. For me, I love Eucalyptus Spearmint from the Bath and Body Works collection, so I recreated it. I added 12 drops of Eucalyptus and 9 of Spearmint and it smelled great. I used an old castile soap bottle I had, but if you are going to use citrus oils, I recommend a glass bottle because citrus can break down some plastics. Update: I recently added a teaspoon of almond oil too and it really softens my skin. Loved it!!
Shake before each use, pour onto a loofah or into your hands and enjoy! So relaxing! And remember, you can vary up the essential oils you add – you can do Ginger, Orange combination, lavender and chamomile oil blend, or whatever you love to smell and diffuse.
