I am going to share something most people would not... I'm a stinky sweater. I sweat A LOT and since I've taken up running, I'm very aware of my own "unique" scent (seriously, my underarms sometimes still smell even right after a shower). I have to say, I'M IMPRESSED!! This is literally the best deodorant I've ever tried (even better than the "clinical" stuff) and it's inexpensive to make!

Next on today's agenda is homemade body wash! I'm planning on making mine lavender scented (I have lavender essential oil leftover from making my deodorant). It's very simple, only 2 ingredients (3 if you opt to use essential oil for scent) and water. I have another recipe using coconut milk and a few other ingredients that I will try at a later time. I made sure to save an empty bottle from the body wash I used to make it easy to dispense. I'll be sure to post a review when I've tried it out as well!
I've been looking for homemade shampoo recipes and there are a TON out there. I'm wondering if any of you have homemade shampoo that you really like?
UPDATE: OK, so I just made homemade shampoo and body wash and couldn't WAIT to try it out (and I haven't showered since my run this morning... DON'T JUDGE)! The shampoo has a very thin/water consistency so pour with care! I put it in an old shampoo bottle with a squeeze top, you only need a little (maybe a teaspoon). It lathers nicely and my hair feels squeaky clean (since it's the weekend I'm letting it air dry so not sure if it affects styling). So far 2 thumbs up (and it smells really nice)! The body wash as also a success! I put it in an old foaming hand soap bottle for easy dispensing (it also has a rather thin/watery consistency) and it worked like a charm. Three pumps on my scrubby was all I needed for my whole shower! For comparison's sake I will make the other body wash recipe next time (I have all the ingredients and it makes a much bigger batch making it super affordable) and decide which one to keep!
I'd love to hear what you think! Would you consider trying any of these recipes?
