The recipe is the same in ingredient amounts and ratios as my original post Homemade Coconut Bodywash, just different products.
Three bars of unscented natural soap (approximately 12 oz) at $1.79 each, cut up into small pieces. I prefer unscented so I can add whatever I want, but use any scent you like!
Dissolved and melted in 12 cups of boiling water.
Add in 3 Tablespoons of vegetable glycerin.
(This bottle was $9.99 at the Co-op, but can be found cheaper on Amazon)
Add in 3 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil.
Then add in your favorite essential oil or a mixture of oils, if you desire. I added about 10 drops of Peppermint and 15 drops of Lemon.
Natural Coconut Bodywash
- 12 cups water
- 3 bars unscented natural soap (12 oz)
- 3 Tablespoons Vegetable Glycerin
- 3 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
Cut the soap into small pieces. In a large stockpot, bring water to a boil and melt the soap. Add the Glycerin and Coconut oils. You can add about 20-25 drops of your favorite essential oils if you want a scented variety. Pour into jars or containers and let thicken overnight. Another alternative is to put it in the fridge or outside if it is cold. Makes 5 pint sized jars (approx. 80 oz).
Another 6 months of clean!
