You will need ¼ cup olive oil, 1/8 cup raw honey, 1 cup liquid castile soap and a few drops of essential oil for making this body wash. You can choose your favorite essential oil such as lavender or tea tree oil or a combination of essential oils.
First mix the olive oil and essential oil together. Now mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl using a spoon. Store the body wash in an airtight jar and keep away from sunlight. While taking a shower, take some of this body wash in a sponge and use it. The honey in this body wash is a natural humectant and gently moisturizes the skin. The essential oils have antibacterial properties that prevent skin infections.
