Today's focus is on how to reduce the toxic exposure in your home by making your own body wash with essential oils instead of something from the store which are often filled with nasties

With some simple ingredients that are easily purchased online, a health food store or even your local supermarket it is really easy to make a bodywash that is good for you and does the job.

I like to combine my essential oils for there properties and get creative with my combinations for different purposes/ and or time of the day it will be used

One of the main ingredients in many DIY items is Castile Soap like liquid soap of various kinds as well as shampoos etc.  It is truly amazing and very inexpensive. It is plant based alternative and really is great! Its pure, all natural and contains no chemical ingredients.  olive oil 

Todays DIY contains the following items
> 1/2 cup of coconut milk
> 2/3 cup of Castile Soap
> 2 teaspoons vegetable glycerine
> 3 table spoons of your choice of carrier oil (jojoba/almond/argan etc) I am using fractionated coconut oil
> 10-15 drops of essential oil of your choice
See below for some of my favourite combos

(Once you have all your ingredients simply combine then in a measuring jar, stir until thoroughly mixed together and then pour into your chosen dispensers.

You can now store your home made body wash inthe shower and use by adding it to a wash cloth or spounge and wash / rinse as usual 

And they were really easy to find purchase too
I bought my Castile Soap from my local health food store
I bought the Glycerine from Woolies in the personal health care isle
I bought the coconut milk from my local fruit and vegie shop that also has a great variety of other products

Here are a list of my fav combos
>Lavender and Tea Tree are just all rounders oils! They are supportive to the skin and calming to the mind so usually this is my go to when making it up some for the boys bathroom
> Lavender Peace Restful blend and Frankincense would be a great combo to use if you were only using the body wash at night and needed some extra support when it came to switching off you mind to promote a restful sleep
> Ylang Ylang and Geranium are a part of the oils known for their hormonal support for women so this would be my go to if you wanted to support this area of your body. PLUS they truly smell delightful!
> Wild Orange and Peppermint is a great blend if you are using this in the mornings and are needing some extra assistance to get yourself motivated and out of the house for the day 

And remember doTERRA are giving you the FREE Citrus Bloom Collection including your own hand wash concentrate on all orders over 200 points before the end of the month so head to SHOP to check out what suits your needs and budget. You could try using the handwash concentrate instead of the Castile Soap in the above recipe. Otherwise you could use the handwash foaming pump and add just the extra carrier oil in it should you wish to use it as your body wash as the carrier oil adds a little more hydration and comfort to the skin
