  • Medium microwave-safe bowl
  • 8 ounce pump bottle



  • Scoop coconut oil into a microwave-safe bowl, and heat on a medium setting for 30 seconds until melted.
  • Add essential oils, honey, and vitamin E and whisk together.
  • Add Castile soap slowly, stirring gently to avoid creating suds.
  • Transfer to a glass or plastic bottle. Shake before each use.


Coconut oil, on the one hand, contains high levels of linoleic and lauric acids, which are helpful for those with acne-prone skin. Coconut oil cleanses and removes excess oily residue and make-up from skin. But some coconut oils have a tendency to cause breakouts. I recommend using Dr Bronner's Coconut Oil, as it's the only one that doesn't cause my sensitive skin to break out.
You’ll notice the body wash separates as it sits, so just shake it up before each use.
Use within 2–3 months.
