Bathtime is successful when your kids get wetter than you do.

Floral Fantasy Body Wash Recipe

  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 1 Tsp citric acid
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 cup liquid castile soap
  • 1 tsp guar gum
  • 1 drop Ylang Ylang essential oil
  • 1 drop Tangerine essential oil
  • 2 drops Jasmine essential oil
  • 2 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 2 drops Vanilla CO2 extract
  • 3 drops German Chamomile

Boil water in a kettle or heat up in the microwave.

In a bowl whisk your oil, honey, hot water, and citric acid together.

Sprinkle in the guar gum, whisking to combine, and then immediately afterward whisk in the castile soap (if you wait too long the guar gum will thicken and you’ll have clumps) until blended and smooth.

Drop in your essential oils and fold in with a spoon or spatula. Store the mixture in a bottle that you have sterilized (opaque is best) out of direct sunlight and shake before each use.

NOTES: The citric acid is used to prevent bacterial growth. The olive oil can be swapped out with coconut oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, or any other oil. The guar gum is used as a thickener, binder, and volume enhancer. You can find the guar gum in most stores that carry natural foods.
