Women seem to be most concerned about beauty and good personal care, but the fact is that a good number of men also care about how they look and smell for that matter. There are so many products designed for men and most tend to be stronger than those of women because of how they are created naturally. Body wash is among the products that you can find in the market for man and they are created using different ingredients.
If you are not careful with the products you buy, they could end up drying the skin or harming it in other different ways. If you are a man looking for soothing, gentle body wash or a wife who wants the best for her husband, you can try making a homemade body wash using the best essential oils and other simple but effective ingredients.
The essential oils – When it comes to the body wash for men, there are a number of essential oils that you can select. The best masculine scented oils are lemongrass, cedar wood, lavender, clary sage, patchouli and sweet orange essential oils. Apart from offering masculine scents that men are bound to love, the essential oils are also gentle on the skin and keep it clean and healthy. You can try different combinations until you find a blend that you love for the body wash.
Epsom salt – This is an important ingredient for the body wash because it gives the soap longer shelf life. You will also need salt to help in preserving the soap.
Coconut oil or almond oil – They make amazing carrier oils for the body wash and they also act as natural moisturizers for the skin. You can decide to use one or a mix of the two for your homemade body wash.
Other ingredients needed for the soap are castile liquid soap and distilled water.
Essential oil combinations
The best way to find out what body wash you like most would be to try a few combinations to make a few batches, then you can decide to stick to one or alternate between them. Try combining 20 drops lemongrass essential oil and 10 drops cedar wood essential oil for the first batch. The next combination you can try is 15 drops lavender essential oil, 10 drops patchouli and 5 drops clary sage essential oil. The last possible combinations for the essential oil body wash can be 10 drops patchouli essential oil, 10 drops lavender and 10 drops sweet orange essential oil. The mixtures make strong and nice scents. If you would rather make less strong body wash, then use fewer drops of your favorite essential oils.
