This homemade body wash recipe uses olive oil to create a thick lather of tiny bubbles that stay close to your skin. It feels luxurious and moisturizes well, so it’s great for the dry winter months.
My friend, Helene first gave me a sample of this body wash several months ago and I’ve been making it myself ever since. Substitute the oil or essential oils for your own favorites if you feel inspired.
Fractionated coconut oil would be a good substitute for the olive oil because it lathers well, is a little lighter and doesn’t have a strong smell.
Switch up the essential oils based on the time of day you shower. Sweet orange essential oil will wake you up in the morning and since it improves circulation it will keep you warm in the winter. If you shower in the evening try lavender, clary sage or German chamomile essential oils. All of these are calming and will help you drift peacefully to sleep.
