Homemade Rose & Lavender Body Wash Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

3 oz. organic liquid Castille soap
2 oz. aloe vera gel
1 oz. rose hydrosol
.25 oz. evening primrose oil
30 drops (or 1.5 ml) lavender essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the Castille soap, aloe vera gel, rose hydrosol and evening primrose oil into a medium to large glass Pyrex measuring cup.

Use a dropper or graduated transfer pipette to add the lavender essential oil.

Mix the ingredients for this rose and lavender body wash recipe until they are fully incorporated then use a funnel to pour the body wash into a 6-8 oz. container of your choice.

Shake before use and enjoy as you would any other body wash!

Use it as moisturizing hand soap!

Alternately, this homemade rose and lavender body wash recipe also makes a wonderful, moisturizing hand soap by the sink! Simply refill your existing hand soap container with this body wash. To refill a foaming hand soap container, fill the container 1/3 of the way full with your body wash then fill the remainder of the container with distilled water.

Why evening primrose oil?

Evening Primrose Oil contains a high concentration of the fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid, also called GLA. This fatty acid gives this plant its remarkable healing properties. Studies have shown that evening primrose oil helps to moisturize, rejuvenate and repair skin cells as well as provide relief from skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. Don’t want to use evening primrose oil? You can substitute any carrier oil in it’s place.

What about other substitutions?

In addition, you can easily change the fragrance of this body wash recipe by substituting the rose hydrosol with any other flower hydrosol of your choice. Prefer simply a rose scented body wash? Omit the lavender essential oil. Or use your favorite essential oil in its place! Mix and match your favorite flower hydrosol and essential oil(s) for a fun custom scent.

    Thank u!! I LOVE IT AND WILL GIVE IT A GO!!

  2. Hello
    I made this the other days but i used Aloe Vera juice instead of Aloe Vera gel and some Glycerin. The Recipe turned out being too runny and is diveded in two parts.Something very white stayes on top

    • There isn’t a thickener used in this recipe, so yes, you can expect it to still be the consistency of the Castile soap. This makes it suitable for use as a foaming hand soap as well. Gently turning the bottle back and forth before use will remix the bubbles back into the soap along with the other ingredients so it’s an even color throughout.

  3. Hello Rebecca,
    Doesn’t aloe vera gel require a preservative for this body wash? If not, I was wondering why not..
