Like soap, many store bought shower gels contain a host of harmful chemicals which you want to avoid being absorbed into your skin. Making your own means you know exactly what the ingredients are, and is a great and economical alternative to buying organic shower gel. It is quick and easy to make, and if you have little ones at home, they will enjoy helping too!
- 300ml liquid Organic Castile Soap
- 3 tbsp raw honey
- 1 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil (optional for dryer skin types)
- 5 – 10 drops of Orange or Grapefruit Essential Oil
- Measure out the ingredients and add them to a glass dispenser with soap pump. (I get mine here)
- Shake well.
Note that if your honey is solid, you may need to heat it gently to melt it a little. To do this, place it in a pyrex bowl over a saucepan of hot water. It is important not to let the honey get too hot otherwise it will destroy the enzymes that give it its therapeutic qualities.
