Bar Soap to Liquid: I didn't follow the proportions exactly, so mine turned out too thick and had to be thinned. One bar really does make a gallon.
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.
DIY Body Wash-get any bar soap, grate it, add flakes in pot on medium heat-add 2 cups of water if you want to make a big batch add 4 cups. Leave on stove until the flakes are melted-let cool down for about two hours-can add a cup of coconut milk for added moisture (optional) after it cools down and u remove the thin layer on top if its still to thick add water and repeat the process:)
DIY Dove liquid body wash: 1 bar of grated soap, microwaved till melted + 2 cups hot water. Stir over medium heat until COMPLETELY melted-may take a while. Pour into glass jar or bowl to cool. Will thicken over 24 hours. Add more water if it's too thick for you. Pour into plastic bottle for shower use.
