DIY Lavender Body Wash Recipe
- 3 cups of distilled water
- 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 tbsp shea butter
- 1 tsp Guar Gum OR xanthan gum
- 1 cup Lavender Castile Soap
As you're looking through these ingredients you may ask yourself…what the heck is guar guam? Guar guam is a natural thickening agent which will thicken the DIY body wash and give it that nice, silky texture. You can find guar guam at your local health store or online.
You can opt not to use guar gum or xanthan gum, but then your body wash will end up being watery.
- To a blender, add all of the ingredients except for the lavender castile soap. If you DO add the soap, you'll end up with a foaming, bubbly mess that will take forever to clean!
- Blend on high for about a minute, and pour into a clean bottle or container.
- Then, add in this castile soap and stir well.
- Shake well before each use to separate ingredients.
- Your DIY lavender body wash is now ready to use!
