By Bargz Oils September 23, 2019


Things you will need: 

- Mixing bowl and spoon
Pump bottle
⅔ cup of Castille soap
¼ cup of honey
2 teaspoons Jojoba oil
1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
2 teaspoons vegetable glycerin
40 drops Orange Essential Oil 



    It’s nice to start the day with an invigoratinshower. It wakes you up in the morning and prepares you for the day. Ending your day can also be relaxing with a warm shower. Whatever time of the day it is, using a body wash can ultimately enhance your shower or bath.

    Body washes are similar to shower gels. They are both liquid cleansers. Body washes, however, are slightly more moisturizing because they usually contain skin-softeners. Somebody washes also gently exfoliates pore-clogging dead skin cells. These body washes help smoothen rough areas without using harsh granules that irritate the skin. A good body wash should be able to clean the skin without stripping off the moisture. It should be able to moisturize and hydrate the skin. Of course, body washes can add fragrance to our skin. It can make us smell good and feel good when we step out of the shower.

                   Making your own body wash is very beneficial because you can use natural products. You are not only protecting yourself from toxic chemicals but you are also helping the environment as well. The ingredients are also very easy to find. 

    Castille soap is the base of the body wash. It is organic and gentle. It is a common ingredient that can be bought at local pharmacies, grocery store or health food stores.

    Jojoba oil is a moisturizing oil that is safe and gentle for the skin. It is easily absorbed by the body and does not have any scent. 

    Vitamin E oil moisturizes and nourishes the skin. 

    Glycerin gives the bubbles and foam. 

    Honey is an additive for this body wash. It is antibacterial and antifungal and accelerates healing. 

    Orange Essential Oil has distinct orange but not too sweet. It is best known for its cheerful and uplifting scent, perfect for a body wash. Orange essential oil promotes a positive environment and is used in many bath and body products.


      1. In a mixing bowl, pour Castille soap and honey.

      2. Add jojoba and vitamin E oils.

      3. Add orange essential oil and glycerin. 

      4. Gently whisk or still all the ingredients together.

      5. Using a funnel, transfer the body wash into a pump bottle. 

                       It would be a great idea to shake the bottle gently before each use to mix the ingredients and use it as you normally would for a body wash. If you are using a glass pump, be careful when you put it in the shower. Some say it’s fine to use a plastic pump bottle instead. Either way, you can enjoy an invigorating shower and smell good at any time of the day.
