Once you start looking into just what ingredients and chemicals are actually in a lot of our personal hygiene products - it can get a little overwhelming and a bit scary.
But the good news is it is easy to create your own natural alternatives. Its very empowering to know exactly what you are using on your body.
This is a really simple recipe for body wash:
3/4 Unscented Castile Soap
1/4 Aloe Vera Juice
2 x tablespoons of Vitamin E Oil
10 x drops of Cedarwood essential oil
10 x drops of Lavender essential oil
10 x drops of Tea Tree essential oil
Put them all into a glass soap dispenser and shake to combine.
You can customise this recipe with any of the essentials oils that work best to support skim. Lavender and Tea Tree have been my go to oils for skin, but Cedarwood also has properties that promote healthy skin.
