Skin care today is full of chemicals. It is ruining our skin and the worst part is we are not aware of it. As I was browsing through natural skin care products, most of them were fake and others which were natural were very costly.
So today I have come up with my own method to make a 100% natural body wash that will take care of your skin and make it more healthy and soft. Healthy skin is just a few steps down.
So just follow me!!!
Vitamin E oil
Essential oil ( of your choice )
Raw organic honey
Rosemary ( optional )
Spoon ( to mix )
Jar ( something to fill )
Step 1: ADDING COCONUT OIL
The first step is to add 1/4 cup of coconut oil. I have used organic extra virgin coconut oil.
Coconut is a very good moisturizer for your skin and is an essential part of skin care.
Step 2: ADDING HONEY
Now we have to add 1/4 cup of honey. I have used organic raw honey.
Honey soothes your skin and has very good moisturizing properties.
The ratio for honey and coconut oil will be 1:1.
Step 3: ADDING CASTILE SOAP
The next step is to add 1/ 2 cup castile soap. I have used store bought castile saop you can also use homemade castile soap. It is responsible for giving foamy texture to our body wash.
Step 4: ADDING VIRAMIN E OIL
Now it's time to add 1 tablespoon of vitamin E oil. It has many benefits -
It has antioxidant properties and is known to help fight free radicals. Studies have shown that when used topically, it can also act as a protectant from skin damage due to sun exposure.
Step 5: ADDING ESSENTIAL OIL
Time for fragrance. Add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil. You can use any fragrance of your choice. Adding essential oil will make your body wash smell good.
Step 6: ADDING ROSEMARY
Now it's time to add rosemary. But this is an optional step, it is upto your choice
First chop it and then separate stem from leaves. Remember to cut it into fine pieces.
The nutrients of rosemary can help protect skin cells from damage often caused by the sun and free radicals. Since rosemary has natural antiseptic properties, it's a superior disinfectant for our skin.
Step 7: MIX AND FILL
It's time to mix all the ingredients which we have added. Do not mix them vigorously because it can leave foam. Just do it gently.
Fill it in a jar or bottle and remember to shake it slowly before every use.
