Homemade Body Wash

We love a little DIY around here, and if you’ve been following along with my blog posts so far you also have figured out we like saving money, decreasing our waste production and plastic use, and try to limit our exposure to various chemicals. Thankfully we’re able to do all of the above when making our own body wash, and not only is it super simple to make it is luxurious to use! 


1/4 cup honey (I like to microwave it for 30 seconds to get it a little runny and easier to mix)

2/3 cup liquid castile soap

2 tsp olive oil

35 drops lavender essential oil

15 drops tea tree oil 


Add all ingredients in a 2 cup or larger measuring cup and whisk to combine. Pour into desired container (I use an old pump container). You can add 1/4 or so of distilled water to thin it out a bit and make it last a little longer. To use, pump a small amount onto a poof or similar and scrub away!
