DIY Spa Treatment: A Lovely Lavender Liquid Body Wash

For all of you who have really enjoyed my at-home beauty recipes, I really think you'll love this easy to make scented body wash. Not only is it a fraction of the cost of most store-bought products, but it's something special that you can share with house guests — you wouldn't offer them your used soap bar, would you? Here's what you'll need to create this luscious liquid body soap:

  • One bottle of unscented shampoo
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
  • 15 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • 5 drops of rosemary essential oil
  • 5 drops of tea tree oil
  • For three fool-proof directions,

    .

    • Step 1: Take a large, glass mixing bowl and pour in one and a half cups of shampoo. It doesn't need to be expensive, it just needs to be unscented.
    • Step 2: If you're someone who likes your body wash to be extra thick, add in a thickening ingredient such as Xanthan gum and mix well.
    • Step 3: Next, add in all 30 drops of essential oils to the bowl and blend well. Feel free to choose whatever oils you like best. I like this effervescent combination for the shower because the lavender is calming, the tea tree oil works as an antibacterial (and it smells great), and the peppermint and rosemary are invigorating.
