Super Sudsy Body Wash

Super Sudsy Body Wash - Colorado Urban HomesteaderI have been so excited to try out recipes for a homemade body wash, but sadly my first attempt was SO AMAZINGLY AWESOME that I didn’t even bother to try different ones.  It consists of 4 ingredients: Dr. Bronners Soap, Glycerine, Almond Oil & Vitamin E.

This body soap is really sudsy (from the glycerine).  I know bubbles don’t equal clean, but it does help give me the satisfaction of seeing the cleaning in action, and in turn I use less product. You can just as well halve the glycerine and still have a great body wash.

Super Sudsy Body Wash ‘Recipe’

Mix the following ingredients into a 15oz or larger bottle, shake to mix everything together.  Add a nickle-size dollop to a loofah and lather!

This body wash turned out to be fairly expensive (see cost comparison below), but since it is really moisturizing, I have not had to use a body moisturizer or lotion (this body wash has gotten rid of the need for it) and that has saved a bunch of money.
