It turned to winter literally overnight here in Nashville. Low 80’s early last week, then BAM, last night the low was 27! BRRRRRRR! But I confess my skin has been feeling winter coming for a couple weeks now. Each night after my shower, my skin would feel tight and the winter itch is taking over. But unlike with previous years, I am armed with the knowledge to fix it! In recent months, I have learned how to develop beauty recipes to help with all of my skin issues! My latest concoction is this All Natural Moisturizing Almond Body Wash.
Gather your ingredients (affiliate links):
Because everybody’s bottle size might be different, an exact recipe is not helpful. Pour Castile soap until your container is half full (3 parts). I used a 16 ounce bottle, so 8 ounces.
Fill your bottle the rest of the way with the three remaining oils, Almond, Avocado and Vitamin E oils (1 part each). If you have a nut allergy, you could replace the almond oil with any other oil you wish, like apricot kernel, fractionated coconut oil, grapeseed, or just double up on the avocado oil.
Now for the best part: essential oils! I chose my oils based on my skin’s needs. Cedarwood for skin regeneration, Lavender for soothing skin, Sandalwood to battle dry skin and Melaleuca for any skin issues like acne, athlete’s foot and it’s cleansing and rejuvenating properties. I used 10 drops each for a 16 oz bottle. Shake well before each use.
If you have a question about the brand of essential oils I use, send me an inquiry here. Due to policy regulations, I am not allowed to tell you directly. I promise to only answer your questions and WILL NOT pester you with newsletters and sales gimmicks. I honestly don’t have the time to be a multi-level marketing guru.
This body wash is so luxurious and leaves my skin feeling soft and supple. As tempting as it is, try not to use ultra hot water when showering. If your skin still feels tight after a few uses, add more oil. You can use this for shaving too. I love how easy this was to make and replace the harsh sulfate-filled body wash I had been using. What about you? Ready to stop stripping your skin every time you wash?
