Do you have dry skin that need some love? This DIY Body Wash is moisturizing, smooth, and smells amazing! It is SO easy to make!

I like to be clean.   On almost every night of the week,  I take either an African dance class, hot yoga class, or a take hike with Dexter.  This adds up to A LOT of sweat. (Sorry about offering too much information!)   I don’t mind getting dirty or sweaty, I just like to get clean shortly after.  This usually leads to taking more than one shower a day.  In order to suds up without the use of synthetic and harmful chemicals, I decided to make my own DIY natural Body Wash.  My skin thanks me, as many soaps and body washes have ingredients in them that dry out your skin. This DIY Body Wash is moisturizing, smooth, and smells amazing!   I have made several different blends so I can use the scent that goes with what I am doing. I use Peppermint Young Living Essential Oil to wake me right up in the morning.  An amazing Lavender and Vetiver blend send me on the way to relaxation.  You can make any scent you choose…..

  1. Does it have to be a glass bottle? Slippery, wet, sudsy hands + ceramic tile +glass scares me! Thnx for your newsletter; I’m really enjoying the tips and recipes! Love

    • Unless you are using a citrus oil, you don’t need to use a glass bottle. I like the sustainability of it!:)

  2. I’ve been looking for homemade natural recipes to swap out my cleaning supplies for – I didn’t think about cleaning myself! I’ll be trying this out. 🙂 For the relaxation one, what ratio of lavender to vetiver drops do you use?

    • Thanks, Rebecca! I use about a 5:4 ratio. You can really make it any ratio you want though, all depends on your preferences! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love making my own body wash as well. I haven’t tried the peppermint or lavender. I bet the peppermint does wake you up. I make mine with orange essential oil. I will have to give your recipes a try. Thanks for sharing!
