31 Days of MOO No. 22 - Make a Gentle Shower Gel

This is a simple recipe for a gentle shower gel you can make yourself in just a few minutes, using ingredients you most likely already have.

You will need:
1/2 cup liquid castile soap (unscented if you want to add your own fragrance)
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp sea salt
Up to 15 drops of your favourite essential oil (optional, use if you have unscented castile soap)

Step 1. Pour the shampoo and water into a small bowl and stir to combine. Make sure they are well mixed. 

Step 2.  Add the sea salt and stir until the mixture thickens. 

Step 3.  If using add the essential oil a few drops at a time, mixing well between additions, until you find the strength of fragrance you like.

Step 4.  Pour into a pump dispenser or bottle. Give it a gentle shake before using.

Notes: If you can't find liquid castile soap (you should find it at your health food shop) use a gentle or baby shampoo instead.

Table salt can be used as a substitute for sea salt.
