DIY Scented Bodywash recipe -Dawn Goehring, doTERRA Desert Naturals

Scented BodyWash recipe with essential oils

Make your own body wash with nourishing essential oils and healthy natural ingredients

Scented bodywash is a fun way to wake up your senses in the morning or calm them down at night. Bodywash can also provide valuable nourishment to your skin, if it contains the right ingredients. 

This bodywash recipe uses all natural nourishing ingredients that won't dry out your skin.  Customize it to your liking with your choice of your favorite scent.


Here's my Amazon picks:


  1. Combine ingredients into glass pump bottle.
  2. Add desired essential oil(s).
  3. Shake to combine. 

Make sure to shake before each use, as the ingredients will separate.

 To use, add a teaspoon or so to a washcloth, a natural loofah, or foot scrubber to scrub away dead skin and reveal the fresh, new skin.

doterra Mini introductory kit with Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint Essential Oils

You can pick this inexpensive starter kit with lemon, lavender, and peppermint here.  All three would be great in this recipe, and also have many other therapeutic uses. 

Please note that so called 'essential oils' sold in most retail drugstores, super-centers and supermarkets are NOT actually essential oils, but synthetic perfumes even though they are marketed as 'pure'.  Many tests have been done on these brands to prove this.  Synthetics will not give you the same results as true essential oils. 

 I choose to use doTERRA essential oils.  They are the purest, highest quality and only brand I use.  

 The cheapest way to get doTERRA is with a starter kit which start at only $55.  Check out the details here or fill in your information in this quick form and I'll email them to you.
