I love starting out my day with an invigorating citrus shower with the added benefits of therapeutic essential oils. I tried Caldrea hand soaps and lotions years ago but after I discovered how to make my own soaps and lotions at a fraction of the cost with high quality essential oils, I was moving on to easy DYI projects!

This body wash is so easy to mix up. In minutes, you can have a moisturizing body wash that will tickle your senses. This body wash is made with simple ingredients that you can pronounce with no parabens, sulfates, or preservatives! I love how this body wash moisturizes my skin and leaves me feeling uplifted and energized. enJOY!

    1. Sweet!!! I hope you enjoy it. Lemongrass and ginger have so many benefits (even though I initially got them to make body wash and lotion). My hubby really likes this body wash too. Bonus points 😉 Blessings.
