the simplest recipe for an all-natural body wash
The last thing I expected was that one day I would make my own body wash. It seems like one of those things that you think requires too many complicated ingredients. Right? But, I discovered the simplest recipe for an all-natural body wash! What really got me, one of the ingredients is honey…it is in my kitchen! Who knew? Also, it is the secret to truly moisturized skin.
Every once in awhile I get a burst of motivation to reinvent my lifestyle. Well today, it was for my shower necessities. I realized that I had collected too many plastic bottles of shampoos, conditioners, and washes. I needed to simplify. So, I got on the magical world wide web and did some searching. In less than a day I had a whole new routine. Gosh, I love the internet.
Here’s to hoping this post will be your last stop during your search for the simplest recipe for an all-natural body wash! Because I can not help but share this recipe with the world. I even let my mother borrow it and she was adamant that I should sell it- it is that good. Though, lucky for you it is all yours!
I needed something that would leave my skin feeling refreshed, not stripped. So, as much as I love Castile Soap as a natural cleanser, I needed to add some nourishment. Which is where the honey and coconut oil comes in! These two replenishing ingredients provide your skin with the vitamins and minerals it needs for protection and repair. Then, I of course tapped into my essential oil arsenal for oils that will revive my skin after a long day- Eucalyptus, Wild Orange, and Lemon Oil. The smell is truly invigorating.
Now, get together a few utensils…
Then, collect the ingredients…
Next, all you need to do is first melt the coconut oil in a the microwave for about 30 seconds! Then, gently pour the essential oils and honey into the melted coconut oil and mix. Finally, add the Castile Soap into the mixture without creating suds (scoop them out of you need to). Now, you are done! Simply store your all-natural body wash in a glass bottle (I reused my kombucha bottle!) and shake it before each use.
The best way to create a natural routine that can heal your skin and body is to do little bits at a time. Sure, you can do what I did and make a shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in one day. But, let’s be honest those days come once in a blue moon. Natural Wellness revolves around simplicity. Keep it simple and keep it natural!
And if you love the simplest recipe for an all-natural body wash, share it! Shout it from the roof-tops! I cannot wait for you to be as shocked as I was when I discovered how easy it is to make a body wash that replenishes and revives. So, be sure to let me know how you like it in the comments & save it on Pinterest if you are into that kinda thing! Also, if you like the idea of natural wellness, here is how you can create the perfect face serum that nourishes your skin!
Keep thriving! – Kat
