    Homemade Body Wash One 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 try it on my son's eczema prone skin. I am going to have to make this my body wash as well."

Nourishing Homemade Body Wash - Live Simply I have been using this for a month now and I really love it! Also, there is no soap scum in my bath tub, even better!!

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. I wasn't thrilled, but may try it with a higher end soap to see if it is any creamier.
