DIY Moisturizing Mint Body Wash *Great Gift Idea

This gentle body wash is great for sensitive skin because it’s made with coconut oil and aloe vera gel, making it extra soothing. It’s also super refreshing and the cooling effect of mint is a great way to start the day.

You Will Need

Yields 1 1/4 cups

1/2 cup Castile soap, unscented

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted/jojoba oil

2 TB. aloe vera gel, at room temprature

1 Tb. honey, melted

25 drops peppermint essential oil

5 drops eucalyptus essential oil



To Make

Whisk together all the ingredients until completely combined. Use a funnel to pour the body wash into your container of choice. I like to use one with a pump handle to make this soap easier to use, as it’s thinner than store-bought body wash. This body wash will separate between uses because there are no binders or stabilizers included. Simply shake it together before each use.
