I am supposed to take it easy and stay off my feet for a couple of days, so I decided to try a project I’ve been wanting to do for a while now. Make some natural body wash.
This project turned out to be incredibly easy (& I could do most of it sitting down) and only takes 2 ingredients.
- 1 bar castile soap
- 6 cups water
Other Equipment You’ll Need:
- vegetable grater
- large sauce pan
- Take your bar of soap and shred it using your vegetable grater. I chose Kirk’s plain castile soap, but I think you can get lavender & peppermint also. Next time I think I’ll add some essential oils for some nice fragrance.
- Heat the water until it is almost boiling; then add the soap flakes.
- Stir the mixture. The soap flakes should start to melt. Remove from heat and let sit for an hour or so. By this time the flakes should be melted.
- You’re done! Let cool & pour into containers.
NOTE: If you’ve used Dr. Bronner’s soap, you know that it is pretty runny. This recipe is also. If you don’t like the runny consistency, you might want to us it in a foaming hand soap container. Simply fill the container half full with this mixture, then add water to fill completely. I am going to try this as soon as one of our foaming hand soap containers is empty.
Thanks Life Blessons for a great idea!
Give this a try & enjoy your body wash!
