How To Make Body Wash With Essential Oils

Are you tired of using store-bought body washes filled with harsh chemicals and artificial fragrances? Why not try making your own natural, nourishing body wash using essential oils? With the right blend of oils and ingredients, you can create a body wash that not only cleanses and refreshes your skin but also promotes wellbeing and relaxation. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of making your very own body wash using essential oils, with a focus on Oshu Oils' artisan essential earth oils.

Choose Your Essential Oils

Before you can create your body wash, you'll need to decide on the essential oils you'd like to include. These oils will not only provide the desired scent, but they can also have various benefits for both your mind and body. Here are some popular essential oils and their benefits:

  • Lavender - relaxing and calming
  • Rosemary - energizing and uplifting
  • Eucalyptus - invigorating and helps with sinus congestion
  • Tea Tree - antibacterial and antifungal properties
  • Ylang Ylang - reduces stress and promotes relaxation

For the best results, we recommend using Oshu Oils' artisan essential earth oils, which are expertly blended for their positive effects on sleep, energy, work, stress, and overall wellbeing.

Gather Your Ingredients

In addition to your chosen essential oils, you'll need the following ingredients to create your body wash:

  • 1 cup of unscented castile soap
  • 1 cup of distilled water
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable glycerin (optional, but recommended for extra moisture)
  • 1 tablespoon of a carrier oil (such as almond, jojoba, or coconut oil)
  • 30-50 drops of your chosen essential oils (typically a combination of 2-3 oils works best)

Create Your Body Wash

Now that you have all of your ingredients, it's time to create your body wash. Follow these simple steps:

Create Your Own Essential Oil

Have you ever dreamt of crafting your own personalised Artisan Essential Oil blend? We've turned this dream into reality. Every blend is carefully hand-blended and prepared to order, tailoring a sensory experience as unique as you.

Choose from our expertly curated blends or explore your creativity. Delve into the essence of up to three handpicked ingredients. It's an opportunity to let your intuition guide you.

  1. In a glass or plastic container, mix together the castile soap, distilled water, and vegetable glycerin (if using). If your castile soap is concentrated, you may need to dilute it according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Add your chosen carrier oil to the mixture. This will help nourish and moisturize your skin while you cleanse.
  3. Slowly add your chosen essential oils to the mix, starting with around 30 drops. You can adjust the amount depending on your scent preferences. Be sure to stir well after each addition.
  4. Pour your body wash into a reusable bottle (preferably one with a pump) and you're ready to use your homemade essential oil-based body wash!

How To Make Body Wash With Essential Oils Example:

Imagine a refreshing and uplifting body wash that incorporates the energizing properties of Oshu Oils' rosemary essential oil, the invigorating power of eucalyptus essential oil, and the antibacterial properties of tea tree oil. In this example, you would follow the instructions above, using 15 drops of rosemary essential oil, 15 drops of eucalyptus essential oil, and 20 drops of tea tree oil for a total of 50 drops.

You now have the knowledge and tools necessary to create your very own essential oil-based body wash, tailored to your specific needs and preferences.
