I miss my long daily showers, long relaxing ones. Being a mom of a little girl,it is difficult to even think about it. So I had to cut short my showers. But I still manage to make my showers special by using relaxing, fragrant body washes. I love my body washes so so much. Now who doesn’t!
Have you thought of making a body wash all by yourself? At the comfort of your home? Do you wish to? Don’t worry it is easy, easier than you could think of. You just need a few items to make your own body wash at home. A body wash which not only cleanse but moisturizes your body too. And you will forget your normal body wash or soap when you experience the rich, bubbly lather of this amazingly fragrant body wash.
So lets get started. Oh my god! I’m excited!!

How to make the body wash
Measure out all the ingredients and mix them up in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Next pour this into a bottle of your choice pump-top or squeeze top. You have your very own body wash.
Use it like you would normally use any other body washes. Pump out the body wash onto a bath pouf or natural sponge and lather on. You can use this directly on your skin. Don’t forget to shake well before each use. This stays in good condition for as long as one year.
Now that you know how to make the body wash lets get into details of the ingredients used.
Liquid castile soap
Castile soap is a vegetable oil based soap made from pure olive oil or coconut oil. This is used to ensure that our body wash has enough lather which is so gentle to your skin.
Sweet almond oil
The purpose of adding oil is to make our body wash moisturizing unlike most of the store bought ones which dries out our skin. The benefit of adding sweet almond oil is that it is effective in lightening stretch marks and also reduces signs of aging.
Honey helps in the treatment and prevention of acne and helps in improving complexion. It is great for slowing down aging. Honey is added in our body wash to moisturize. It also helps in retaining elasticity of our skin. Honey also thickens the body wash and promotes lather.
Lavender oil is great for treating acne and eczema. The purpose of adding lavender oil in our body wash is to give a pleasant smell to our body wash. Moreover, lavender oil is great for all skin types and is very gentle to the skin.
So make your own body wash and feel the difference.
