So I really wanted to make a homemade shower gel but I assumed it would be difficult to make…but, as with any learning curve, I soon discovered it was super EASY! This homemade shower gel will take you less than 5 minutes to make once you have acquired the ingredients. It has a nice suds action and is very moisturizing as well.
Plus this recipe for homemade shower gel is fully natural, non-toxic, and you can use whatever essential oils you like to make it smell divine. I will say I am partial to the scent in this recipe because it smells FANTASTIC…but you can use whatever essential oils you prefer!
I just want to note that this essential oil blend smells crazy good…and guess what? Ylang Ylang and Idaho Blue Spruce together are supposed to be great for getting in the mood…if you know what I mean! So enjoy this in the tub or the shower! As I said before, you can whip up a batch of this homemade shower gel in less than 5 minutes and I usually make it once every few months. I dare you to try this homemade version!
