Shower Gels and Soaps – Coconut and Honey Body Wash


Shower gels and soaps are a staple of most healthy beauty routines, but I have found that they are almost always packed full of artificial ingredients and skin irritants.
Here are a few of my favorite organic recipes that offer great long-lasting perfume with natural organic ingredients.


By Boris Bulychev /



¼ cup organic coconut oil
¼ cup organic honey
1 tsp. vitamin E
½ cup castile soap
10 drops orange essential oil
15 drops eucalyptus essential oil
10 drops grapefruit essential oil
1 BPA Free bottle with lid


In a microwave-safe bowl, melt your coconut oil in the microwave for around 30 seconds or until the oil is melted.

When your oil is melted, add in your essential oils, honey and vitamin E. Using a fork or a whisk, mix together all of your ingredients to distribute them equally.

Once combined, stir in your Castile soap gently – stirring too vigorously will cause the soap to bubble.

Now, put your body wash in to your container and put on the lid!
To use, just pour out a small quarter size amount of your body wash and lather on to your body! Be sure to shake this wash before every use though!
