DIY: Chemical Free Moisturizing Body Wash


It’s hard to find to chemical, toxin free body wash out there right now. It seems like all mainstream body washes are chalked full of sulfates, fragrances, dyes, parabens and a whole host of other chemicals. After learning about all the possible scary side effects (including cancer) – I decided to make my own. This is such an affordable option (bonus: because it was not my 1st concern) and is totally organic, natural, biodegradable and free of any harmful ingredients. Plus, you can recycle and reuse your old glass bottles.

(This recipe is for a quart size bottle)

I choose to make my body wash extra moisturizing, as I get really dry skin in the winter. You could simply just add your doTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils to the Dr. Bronner’s Organic Unscented Castile Soap , but I went a step further. Adding almond oil and coconut oil to my mixture made it extra creamy and moisturizing. It feels so luxurious on the skin!

Please feel free to use whatever essential oils are your favorites. My combination turned out beautifully. If you are making this for babies, I would use the lavender oil by itself as it is very gentle and calming.

You will need:

Dr. Bronner’s Organic Unscented Castile Soap

(You can get from Amazon, Target or Whole Foods)

Organic Sweet Almond Oil


Essential Oil(s) of your Choice

1 Glass container (quart size)

Funnel and Measuring Cups

Add 2 cups of Unscented Castile Soap

Add 1 cup of Almond Oil

Measure out 1 cup coconut oil and melt in microwave or stove top

Add to the rest of the liquid

Add your essential oils. Shake well, which will make all your ingredients incorporate.

Add a cute label then lather and rinse!

    does this last indefinitely or does it go bad at some point?

    • Mary Crimmins July 29, 2014 at 6:11 pm #

      Thanks for your comment Dev. As long as you keep it out of the heat it should last indefinitely.

    Can you make this without the fragrance oils?

    • Mary Crimmins July 29, 2014 at 6:12 pm #

      You can definitely make this without the essential oils if you prefer no fragrance. I like to put oils in there not only for fragrance but for their therapeutic benefits as well!
