This blog is about everything DIY so how can I not make a homemade body wash. To make your own thing is so satisfying for me wherein I not only know what all goes in it but I also know that store bought products can’t be better than this. In today’s post I’m sharing with all you guys a recipe for homemade milk and honey body wash which is the best thing you would have ever used.
This body wash is so gentle and moisturizing to skin that you’ll be amazed. A soap always has a tendency to dry out skin and make it harsh but this is just the opposite. This body wash will make your skin feel so clean and nourished and that too without all the harmful chemicals. Yes, it has no chemicals, even the foam comes from liquid castile soap which is all natural. The milk used here is not regular cow milk, I recommend using plant based milk like coconut milk or almond milk. I have used coconut milk which is really good for achieving soft and supple skin.
Apart from that this has honey which is rich in anti-oxidant and prevents saggy skin. Ideally raw honey should be used but I could not manage so used regular honey. Adding oils like olive oil or almond oil or vitamin E oil (acts as a preservative as well) will make this body wash super hydrating which takes this body wash ahead of any store bought ones. Including fragrance is a choice, I love adding lavender essential oil which not only makes the body wash smell really good but also acts as a preservative which makes this body wash last longer.
I highly recommend trying this product out and if in case you want to replace castile soap, do watch out my full video on youtube for which I’ll leave a link below. You can use this body wash like regular store bought ones with a loofah. Store in the washroom for about two weeks and then make a fresh batch.
