Fall Orchard Homemade Body Wash Recipe

Pamper your skin with a homemade body wash recipe!

This body wash provides incredible nourishing benefits to your skin thanks to the use of all-natural, skin-loving ingredients. But that’s not all! Fall Orchard Body Wash also features a deliciously wonderful autumn scent with the power of essential oils!

Why Make Your Own Homemade Body Wash?

Making your own homemade body wash is a great way to ensure you use natural and safe ingredients on your skin. By creating your own body wash, you have control over what goes into it and know exactly what you put on your skin. Unlike many store-bought body washes, homemade versions do not contain harsh chemicals that may cause irritation or harm to your skin. Natural ingredients such as essential oils make your skin feel refreshed and nourished. Not only is making your own body wash better for your skin, but it can also be a fun and creative DIY project, just like what an Earthie, Susan Wilson, did to celebrate Columbus Day.

What’s in This Fall Orchard Body Wash?

Body Wash Powder

Body Wash Powder is a body wash base made with clean ingredients that you can mix with water, making it an easy and affordable way to get a great body wash. The best part? It’s customizable! You can add your own essential oils to give it your desired scent, or mix in some exfoliating ingredients for extra smooth skin.

Almond Oil

Adding Almond Oil to your homemade body wash provides a nourishing and hydrating component. Almond Oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, making it a great addition to any skincare regimen. It not only keeps your skin moisturized but also helps to soothe irritation and redness.

Distilled Water

Distilled water is perfect for mixing with body wash powder because it is free from impurities, ensuring that the final product is of the highest quality. 

Autumn Air Essential Oil Blend

With the help of Autumn Air Essential Oil Blend, you can create a luxurious shower gel that perfectly encapsulates the season. This delightful scent uplifts the senses, filling you with the warmth and comfort of Fall

Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot Essential Oil imparts a refreshing, citrusy, and floral aroma. It has the power to both uplift and calm the senses. Feeling stressed? A few drops of Bergamot Oil in your body wash can work wonders for your mood. Plus, its deodorizing properties will leave you smelling fresh and clean all day long.

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

Some essential oil recipes are not generally safe to use if you are pregnant. Consult your doctor prior to use.

This essential oil recipe is safe to use with kids aged 10+.
