DIY Vegan Grapefruit Body Wash


I recently shared with you all some recipes for a kitchen and bathroom antibacterial spray and laundry detergent. Since so many of you enjoyed those posts, I decided I’d share some more of my DIY projects that I do to save some money.

It was always a challenge for me to find organic body wash that didn’t have chemicals or other ingredients I’m sensitive too. When I finally did find one that I could use, at $9 a bottle that stuff adds up quick! I decided it’s best to make my own. It’s not only much cheaper but I can customize it with different fragrances or oils to fit my skin needs. Plus there’s no honey in it like most recipes so it’s great for my vegan friends!


1 cup liquid castile soap

1/2 cup water

2 tbsp oil (jojoba, almond, grapeseed, olive, etc)

15 drops eucalyptus oil

10 drops rosemary oil

10 drops grapefruit oil


Pour the castile soap, water and oil into a mixing cup and then into an empty soap bottle. Pour in the essential oils, shake and use. Shake before each use.


Use any of your favorite essential oils or change up what oil you use depending on the needs of your skin. Jojoba and grapeseed are good for acne prone skin, olive and coconut are great for dry skin. Make it your own!
