I recently came up with the idea of combining my shower gel with my body scrub and I have to admit, I found it to be pretty genius! This recipe for my Tropical Exfoliating Body Wash is one that I think you will really enjoy all summer long! It’s a body wash + body scrub in one. The scrub is very gentle so if you are looking for a serious scrub, you can make a grittier scrub to have on hand for those times. This body wash scrub can be used daily since it is gentle. The smell is amazing and the best part…it’s all natural and filled with clean, eco-friendly ingredients. It’s easy to make and you might even have everything you need on hand. Making DIY body products is something I love to do!
Tropical Homemade Exfoliating Body Wash Tutorial
Ingredients/Supplies Needed for Body Wash Recipe:
- 8-10 oz empty squeeze bottle
- 1 Cup of Lavender Dr Bronner’s Castile Soap
- 1/4 Cup of distilled water
- 2 TBSP sugar
- Young Living Lime, Orange and Lavender essential oils
How To Make Shower Body Wash:
Gather all your supplies for the exfoliating body wash and head to the kitchen counter. Start with your castile soap and sugar.
Pour 1 cup of your Dr Bronner’s Lavender Soap into your squeeze bottle. Next, add 2 TBSP of your sugar into the bottle as well.
Grab your essential oils (*I only use & trust Young Living essential oils since they are high quality and truly pure) and add 5 drops of Lavender, 8 drops of Lime, and 8 drops of Orange. These essential oils are great for the skin and they are very uplifting so you love the way this homemade body wash smells and makes you feel.
Finally, add in your 1/4 cup of distilled water.
You will want to give your body wash scrub a good shake before each use!
I would love to hear how you like this exfoliating body wash if you choose to make some. So come back and share your thoughts!
I have had a few questions about using this on your face and yes you can use the bubble scrub recipe for a gentle soapy face scrub but I would make a separate one and use Lavender essential oil & Tea Tree essential oil or Lavender and Frankincense instead of the citrus essential oils in the DIY body wash. Tea tree essential oil and frankincense essential oils are great oils for your face!
I hope you enjoy this recipe and make some Tropical Bubble Scrub for the summer!!
