So I ran out of the body wash I bought, so I decided to make my own. Since I’ve decided to severely scale down the amount of products in my home, I wanted to try making body wash. It’s cheaper and I know what I’m putting on our bodies.
Here’s the recipe:
You’ll need a container – reuse what you have if you can.
1 1/3 cup Castile soap
(I used hemp eucalyptus and hemp rose)
2/3 cup oil
(I used coconut, but you can use almond, grapeseed, olive oils)
1 1/3 cup filtered water
You can double this, but I already doubled it since my container was larger..
Prices for products
Hemp soap: I got on sale for $5ish
Coconut oil: I already had this one – $8
Total: roughly $15 (rounded up)
I can make several batches with these products, so all in all I’m saving. It smells awesome too. It’s so much more gratifying to make your own products. Yes people will think you’re crazy if you tell them you don’t buy certain things anymore, and just make it.. Think of it this way, you won’t have any questions as to what you’re putting on your body. Major plus there, and you’ll be saving money.. I mean come on.. we all want to save money.. give it a try I think you’ll come to like it. Just remember it will be thinner consistently than store bought stuff. Also remember to give it a shake before you use it, just for good measure.
