The ingredients are quite simple... and you don't need a scientific degree to understand what the ingredients are!
Here you can see that the four main ingredients have been added - honey, glycerin, Dr. Bronner's castille soap, and skin oil. I love the layered look!
And then add your favorite combination of essential oils (I used Thieves, a Young Living oil) .... (and no, I am not selling it... I just happen to love it!)
Tipping the bottle to mix it all up...
And there you have it - easily made in about 2 minutes - an luxurious Honey-Silk body wash that soothes your skin while it cleanses it.
Want the recipe? I'm happy to provide it. I've experimented with different body washes that I've found recipes for, and this is the one I'm happiest with.
HOMEMADE HONEY-SILK BODY WASH
3 tbsp vegetable glycerin
3 tbsp castille soap
2 tbsp vitamin E oil (olive oil, rose hip oil, or other skin oils will work)
12 drops essential oil (I used Young Living Thieves, but your favorite essential oil would work)
*Use an empty clean container that is at least 8-10 oz. It needs to have a pourable lid which makes it easier to use in the shower. I use a plastic container because glass containers are dangerous in the bathtub.
In your empty container, add the above ingredients. Close the lid tightly and gently turn upside down, and shake a few times until mixed well. Use about a quarter size on your washcloth or sponge.
Note: If you find that you would like more bubbles, you can use a bigger container, and add more glycerin to the mixture, which I've found helps create more bubbles.
Making your own body wash has a bit of a startup cost at first, but after you invest in the ingredients, it makes a lot and lasts a long time, and you have a body wash for your skin that nurtures it while cleansing it. Best of all... you can customize and experiment with the skin oils, and essential oils to get it just right for you and your skin. :)
