Pinner says - Best home made body wash recipe I've found. (It's suppose to be ideal for Eczema) Update 3/15/12: I just finished making my first batch & I absolutely love it. It smells really great ( I used a lavender essential oil) & after washing my hands with it I quickly noticed how clean, soft & smooth they felt. I can't wait to have Jeremy try it on his eczema prone skin. Wash Recipe, Homemade Body Wash, Home Made Essential Oil, Beautiful, Coconut Oil, Lavender Essential Oils, Castile Soap, Diy, Bodywash

body-wash I halved this recipe to give it a try. I made one batch with Dial soap for kids & one with Irish Spring. I found that the consistency of both batches were like that of egg white or as my daughter called it, snot. lol. It also doesn't lather like commercial body wash. If you're looking for clean & low in cost, then this may be for you.
