Work With Me Wednesday: Moisturizing Body Wash

Work With Me Wednesday: Moisturizing Body Wash

Welcome back to Work With Me Wednesday. I'm so glad you can tag along. Today, I'm making a moisturizing body wash. More specifically, I'm making the Queen of Flowers Body Wash. 

The ingredients in this formulation are key to its moisturizing benefits. They are:

  • Organic Castile soap. It's an oil-based soap made from olive oil, coconut, castor, or hemp oils. Castor oil is natural, nontoxic, bio-degradable, gentle on skin, and non-irritating.


  • Organic Castor oil. It has antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and moisturizing properties. Castor oil has been used since Ancient Egyptian times.


  • Raw Buckwheat honey. It's antiseptic, antibacterial, and contains natural alpha hydroxy acid, which exfoliates the skin. Honey is also a humectant that attracts and retains moisture in the skin.


  • Essential oil blend. The Queen of Flowers is a floral melange of Madagascan Ylang ylang, Egyptian Jasmine, and Bulgarian Rose Otto essential oils.

I add the essential oil blend to the castor oil and combine all the ingredients.

The ingredient separates. I stir the ingredients until they blend nicely together. The rich brown color is from the Buckwheat honey. It looks like hot chocolate, but smells like a flower garden.

Thank you for tagging along with me in the lab to Work With Me Wednesday. Be sure to tag along next week and invite a friend or two to join us.
