Natural Antibacterial Body Wash Recipe

I developed this body wash by combining aspects of other recipes that I liked. This is more liquidy than the body wash you would buy at the store, so I use a spray bottle to be less wasteful. It's kind of fun because it is so different than any other way you would use soap in the shower. My boyfriend says he really likes using the spray bottle!

The castile soap is a great natural soap base, and aloe vera and coconut oil are awesome moisturizers. Eucalyptus, tea tree, and lavender are all antibacterial oils. I use the glycerin is to help preserve the concoction, but also acts as a moisturizer!

Ok, here you go!

Earthwise Natural Antibacterial Body Wash Recipe

1 cup castile soap (your choice of scent) (I used Dr. Bronner's Lavender)
1/4 cup aloe vera juice
1 tsp. vegetable glycerin
10 drops eucalyptus oil
10 drops tea tree oil
5 drops lavender (I just like to add more lavender ;) )
1 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
Spray Bottle

Mix together everything except the coconut oil. Melt the coconut oil to a liquid, whichever method you like, it doesn't take much to melt it. Then mix it in quickly, so it doesn't re-solidify. Then use a funnel to put it in your spray bottle!

If you want to make more at a time, just double the batch!

I hope you will try it out and let me know what you think!

love & light,


  1. OOoooh I would love to try this! Where do you get your aloe vera juice??

  2. You can get aloe vera juice at health food stores or somewhere where they sell vitamins and supplements. I think I have even seen it sometimes at Walmart.

  3. Love you blog! I nominated you for a Liebster Award :-)
