Easy, Uplifting, All Natural Body Wash

Easy Uplifting All Natural Body Wash

I love using a great smelling body wash in the shower after a hard workout. It feels amazing to get clean and smell good after getting all sweaty. I love this body wash because it is healthy, all natural, smells great and is super easy to make. And once you have the supplies, it is so cheap! As a former Bath and Body Works addict, I can tell you that making this, or other natural body washes, will save you lots of money. I like to make multiple batches at once so that I never run out. I also like to mix up the scent or the essential oils I use. I love this one because it smells “happy,” but I also like having an invigorating body wash, as well as a relaxing one, depending on the time of day I am using it.

You will need:

Citrus essential oil (or oil of your choosing. To make it “uplifting,” I like to use citrus oils because they great benefits for improving your mood, as well as peppermint for its invigorating scent.)

Liquid Castille Soap

Honey (I usually buy this at my local store)

Fractionated Coconut Oil (I get this from my essential oil company.)

Vitamin E Oil

8 oz glass pump bottle (it needs to be glass to contain the essential oils safely)

Note: You can also get some of this from Thrive Market at a cheaper price than from Amazon, or at your local store. It pays to shop around, but I have just added links to the products I use for convenience.)

I love knowing that with just a few ingredients I can make a healthy body wash for the whole family that is safe and effective, not to mention saves money!

Note: Sometimes, if you are new to all of this like I was, this can all seem overwhelming…making your own products and figuring out the best way to feed your family and keep everyone healthy. I always recommend just taking one day at a time, one step at a time. Maybe today you can switch out body wash, or buy organic food, etc. It doesn’t all have to be done at once. I just replaced all of my cleaning and beauty products one by one, as I ran out of them. That way it didn’t cost a fortune and I was still making progress and didn’t get overwhelmed. This is a lifestyle change, not a fad, so stick with it and your family will be healthier for it! 🙂

Have you tried a natural body wash? What was your experience?

P.S. If making your own beauty products is too overwhelming for you at this point (and we all have those days), I recommend Beautycounter for products when you want to buy them instead of make them. They are a mission-focused company who is trying to change the world, one safer beauty product at a time. Their stuff works great and looks amazing. (If you purchase through my link I receive a small commission and, as always, half of the profit from this site goes to helping those in need.) Here is a link to their amazing body wash.
