Chamomile Lavender Body Wash


Soothe the mind and skin with a powerfully fragrant natural DIY body wash.

The undertaking of switching your bath and body products to all natural can be daunting and expensive if you try to do it all at once!

Going Natural

When I began the process a few years ago, I found it best to replace products as I used them up. So, I finished what I currently had while I planned to create a natural alternative.

Although, when I came to this recipe I found myself using double the amount of my regular body wash from a popular American bath and body store. So, I could make this one sooner! I loved all the creative fragrance combinations they came up, and I worried I couldn’t make a natural body wash that would be as fragrant as theirs.

Natural Chamomile Lavender DIY Body Wash Ingredients


In Search Of a powerful yet soothing combination, I tried a few things but each either smelled like a household cleaner or didn’t stay fragrant when applied.

Then when browsing the aisles of Target I saw a hand soap with a chamomile fragrance. It had a divine scent! I quickly put the lid back on the hand soap and finished my regular shopping to stop at my local family owned vitamin store for chamomile essential oil. Much to my delight, they had a half an ounce bottle and the owner said it was the best!

I couldn’t agree more when I combined it with lavender essential oil. Both known for their calming and nourishing benefits for the skin.  It was the powerful fragrant combination I was hoping for.

Chamomile adds an almost fruity scent to Lavender’s soft floral fragrance for a relaxing DIY body wash recipe. Try this body wash with my Lavender Lemon Sugar Scrub for added exfoliation.

      I’m definitely interested in trying out this recipe, it looks so nourishing! Question: do I need to use fractionated coconut oil or can I use regular coconut oil? I usually have Trader Joe’s Organic Triple Filtered Coconut Oil on-hand and curious if I could use that. Thanks!

        Jessica, it needs to be fractionated coconut oil. The other is to thick and won’t come out of a pump bottle. Look in the beauty or vitamin section at Trader Joes or Whole Foods you can find it there from Aura Cacia!
