Everyone of us wants to stay looking and smelling fresh after a heavy activity. We want to stay clean and refreshed the whole day. But how do we maintain those things? Are we going to spend lots and lots of money everytime we needed to use them? Do we need to go to city and buy the things we needed to maintain our physical attribute? I guess that’s too bothersome. However, there are ways that we can do without spending even a single cent. We just have to be resourceful and creative. Read more to find out!
Homemade Natural Body Wash
When I played soccer in high school, I spent a lot of money on fancy body wash products (and fancy personal care products in general). I definitely bought into all the claims of how they would make your skin softer/tighter/smell great/acne free/etc and had several that I mixed and matched to get the scent and effect I wanted (chemical cocktail anyone?)
I don’t use most conventional products anymore and usually just default to using bar soap, but when I still want the skin softening, great smelling benefits of body wash, I make my own.
Natural Body Wash Ingredients
This body wash combines several of my favorite skin care ingredients. I use:
Raw honey: I’ve posted before about how honey is a great skin care ingredient on its own and how it is great for wound healing(and even used in hospitals). In this recipe, it helps soften skin and is naturally soothing & antibacterial. I use local, raw honey when possible and use an organic raw honey (like this one)when I can’t find any locally.
Natural Oils: I use the oil cleansing method to wash my face each day and my skin has never looked better. This recipe uses natural oils to accomplish some of the same benefits as oil cleansing for the whole body. I used a mixture of castor oil and olive oil.
