DIY Body Wash with essential oils

12316477_538814376294034_848166178647251610_nI 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.

IMG_0007 (1)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!!

IMG_0008Shake 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.

  1. If the bodywash hardened how does it work to add oils to it and also shake before use.. If it hardened? I have tried to make bodywash before with no luck.. How do you keep it from hardening.. Or you can’t?

    1. Hi Brandi, thanks for your question! It does not harden like you think. But like the picture shows, it separates, so you shake before each use. The oils are added while the liquid honey/coconut oil are still warm on the stove/double boiler so they blend in. Then you take the warm mix and add it into the room temperature castile soap. Then I mix/shake thoroughly. Then just transfer the bottle to you bath tub/shower and use it. It doesn’t harden.
