Make Your Own Body Wash Using 2 Ingredients

This 2 ingredient body wash is easy to make, for yourself or give as a gift. While many body washes can be expensive, this do it yourself body wash can be considerably quite cost effective. Choose your favorite full bar of soap, grate and dissolve in 2 cups of boiling water. When finished, place liquid body wash in a decorative container and you have yourself a body wash made by your own two hands.

Supplies needed for this project:

  • Full bar of soap of your choice (I used Goat Milk Soap in Tea Tree Oil)
  • A course grater
  • 2 cups of water
  • A container (use a decorative container to give as a gift or upcycle one of your own)

Choose your bar of soap

Use a grater and grate your bar into a container. I grated half of the bar of soap and saved the rest for later. 

Bring 2 cups of water to a rolling boil.

Add in your grated soap.

Stir until the grated soap has dissolved. 

Allow body wash to cool. If the water has boiled away more water than necessary, add more water and heat through. I did need to add more water. Approximately, 1 cup.  I reheated the liquid body wash and added the 1 cup of water.

When the body wash has cooled, use a funnel and place your diy body wash in the container of your choice.

You can add essential oils to your own body wash if you so desire. Add in your favorite essential oil scent. Or add a teaspoon of coconut oil to add moisturizer to your body wash.

Now you tell me-

What would you add to make this body wash your own?
