Honey Coconut Body Wash RecipeHoney Coconut Body Wash Recipe1

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 20 drops sweet orange essential oil
  • 10 drops lemon essential oil
  • 6 drops chamomile essential oil
  • 1 cup unscented liquid castile soap
  • Fill the bottom of a double boiler with water and put it on the stovetop over medium heat. Once it reaches a boil, reduce heat to simmer.
  • Place coconut oil in the top and cover. Simmer until it’s melted, stirring occasionally, about 1 minute. To preserve the beneficial botanicals, do not overheat. Remove from heat; take the top pan off the double boiler and wipe it dry with a towel.
  • Put honey into a mixing bowl and add melted coconut oil, using a rubber spatula to get the remainder out of the pan. Whisk ingredients together for a minute, then add essential oils and whisk to blend.
  • Finally, add castile soap, whisking gently to create a uniform liquid. Do not overwhisk, as this activates the soap bubbles.
  • Carefully funnel mixture into a 16-ounce bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Label with contents and date; use within a year.
To use, apply to damp skin in small, upward motions. Rinse well. Makes 16 ounces.
