All Natural Homemade Citrus Body Wash

We finally did it. We finally ditched the store bought, so called "good for you",
 body washes and made our very own!

How can you not feel good about knowing that what you are putting "on" your body is as good as what you put "in" your body.

Since we are really making  many life style changes for cleaner eating and living, 
making a chemical free body wash had to be done in our minds.

And it certainly makes a fabulous Mothers Day gift too!

Here it is...Kristin's Citrus Body Wash!

Citrus Body Wash Recipe


2 cups Dr. Bonner's Citrus Pure Castile Soap
 (we used the Dr. Bonner's Citrus Castile Soap for more citrus action!)

1 cup organic fractionated coconut oil {preferred} or organic almond oil

1 cup melted organic coconut oil

Safe plastic pump bottle BPA free(we found ours here)


Essential Oils Used

20 drops Pink Grapefruit 
15 drops Tangerine
15 drops Orange
15 drops Lemon
5 Patchouli


Melt coconut oil on stove in a glass jar in a pot of warm water.

Mix all ingredients into a glass measuring cup adding the essential oils last. 

Gently blend.

Place body wash in bottle. Add label...enjoy!

Makes one quart of body wash. 

You may experience some separation, just gently shake prior to using.

We love how this recipe turned out. 

Smells wonderful.

No artificial ingredients, coloring's or preservatives.

Be forewarned.... this body wash is not going to billow up like you are use to with brands that have all the added junk.

You will still get a good slip and some lather. 
But we just don't want you to be disappointed by the lack.

Gentle enough to use on a baby!

Now we in the process of making a citrus body butter 
and body scrub grapefruit enriched!

Speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.
Ephesians 4:15
