For the past year, I have been on a mission to begin ridding my home of unnecessary chemicals.
Detoxing our Personal Care Products
One of the first places I started was with soaps and products that touch our skin. Can you believe all the stuff that is in your body wash and shampoo, half of it I can not even pronounce?
The process of changing to more healthier alternatives has been slow going.
I will admit to a major failure on my first attempt at creating a No Shampoo product and it nearly destroyed my hair. Months later my hair is just now recovering and I plan on sharing that exciting journey in another post.

But to get back to the subject of this post, all natural homemade body wash!
Like every busy mom out there, I feel like I am constantly covered in some sort of dirty nastiness from my kids.
From snot, to sticky fingers somehow some way I always end up feeling gross by noon. The sad part is there are days that I can't even remember when the last time I showered. My poor Husband, he has no clue sometimes what kind of creature he married.
So in this post, I'm going to share with you, my quick, simple and easy to make
All natural homemade body wash!
It smells amazing! So if you are a mom like me, who finds it a treat to be even standing in a shower you are going to love this homemade body wash.
One thing I love ya'll, is that the recipe has only 5 INGREDIENTS!
and something else you might like is it cost me less than $5 to make! Before I started doing a lot of DIY stuff I will tell you I had never heard of Dr. Bronner's Soap. Now if I don't at least have a bottle of it somewhere in my house I get worried. It is so versatile and it has no toxic ingredients.
My favorite is Dr. Bronner's baby unscented soap. It is super gentle and can be used on my girls.
Now for this homemade body wash, I decided I wanted to use Citrus Fresh Essential Oil, it is an oil sold by Young Living and I absolutely love the scent.
Citrus fresh is made with Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarin, and Spearmint. It has such a great pick me up and it just makes me happy.
The first try at making this soap I only used about 10 drops but to be honest I could barely smell the Citrus Fresh. So in this recipe, I added 30.
It still is a nice light smell. What I like about this recipe is you can play around with the scent. Just pick your favorite essential oil and use it in this basic homemade body wash.
ALL NATURAL HOMEMADE BODY WASH
How to make the BEST homemade body wash! The perfect homemade body wash for the whole family. I love this homemade body wash featuring Citrus Fresh Essential Oil. Make it all your own by choosing your own favorite Essential Oil.
