This body wash recipe takes minutes to make if you have the ingredients. Substitute ingredients if needed. You can even involve your kids.

DIY Body Wash Ingredients This natural body wash combines several of my favorite natural skincare ingredients. Each one offers unique benefits to your skin.

Raw Honey I’ve posted before about how honey is a great skincare ingredient on its own. Did you know honey is also excellent for wound healing (and even used in hospitals)? In this recipe, honey helps soften your skin and is naturally soothing & antibacterial.

Natural Oils Natural oils are great cleansers for our skin. I use the oil cleansing method to wash my face each day, and my skin has never looked better.

Liquid Castile Soap This gives the body wash the cleansing ability. I use Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild, which is unscented so that I can customize the scent with essential oils, but any scent of organic liquid castile soap will work.

Essential Oils Essential oils are a great way to customize it. There are so many combinations of scents you could use! You could even change up the oils you use seasonally or based on the holidays.

Pump Bottle Since essential oils don’t store well in plastic containers, it’s best to keep your homemade body wash in a glass container.

Notes: I use a natural sea sponge (like this one) with this body wash, and it foams up really well. If you don’t have a sea sponge, a washcloth will work well too!
