DIY Moisturizing Body Wash for Dry Skin

Having grown up in New England, I can honestly say that I really enjoy fall and winter weather.  I love the smell of leaves and the feel of a crisp breeze.  What I don’t love, however, is the dry skin that comes with turning the heat on in my house.  This DIY moisturizing body wash for dry skin is an easy way to restore the moisture to your skin that the dry air just sucks right out of your body.  If you love homemade beauty products, you could also try my Lavender Honey Milk Bath Recipe.

Castile Soap is a Must Have Item for Natural Beauty

Are you familiar with Castile soap? If you have never used this stuff, it is truly amazing and very inexpensive.  Castile soap is an olive-oil-based hard soap made in a style similar to that originating in the Castile region of Spain. What does that mean? All you really need to know is that it is pure, all-natural, and contains NO chemical ingredients.  It is a must-have item if you want to make natural beauty products like liquid soap, shampoo, etc.

I found Dr. Bronners Castile Soap at my local grocery store.  Considering how far this stuff will go, it is pretty inexpensive.  Making this DIY moisturizing body wash for dry skin is incredibly easy and you can choose your favorite scents to add.  You really don’t need anything special to make this body wash recipe but to store it, I recommend a mason jar with pump dispenser.  If you already have a large mason jar, just get a pump dispenser to make using it in the shower easier.

The only real caution I leave you with is to mix the solution GENTLY.  If you shake it up too hard, all you will do is create massive amounts of bubbles!  Just combine the ingredients in the mason jar and rock it back and forth gently to mix them together.
