Equals $1.34 a gallon for body wash (for men's body wash...and women's if you use cheaper soap) But I'm going to do what she did and use a philosophy bar...love that stuff and love that this will make it go so much farther for so much cheaper!!

DIY: Home made body wash-- Made 8/12 fairly successful...FYI using dove beauty bars turns out a very thin liquid. the best consistency was from the cheapy soaps I found at the dollar store. However, the Dove feels much nicer on the skin than the dollar store brand...what a conundrum! Will be experimenting with different brands in the future.
Homemade body wash. 1 bar of Castile soap.(can use other brands) Grate soap. Add to 12 cups water and simmer on stove until dissolved. Add 2 tbs glycerine. Take off heat and let sit for about 10 hours until thickens and cools. Can add 3 tsp of essential oils at this point if desired for fragrance. Makes about 3 qts. If adding essential oils, use aromatherapy, candle or food grade oils.
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.
