DIY Body Wash & Foaming Hand Soap

For Christmas as gifts I made homemade body wash and foaming hand wash. Since then I have kept up stock in this super awesome stuff. We have saved lots of money when we buy one bottle of Castile soap it lasts for awhile. I buy this brand.

We LOVE this recipe for both products but the body wash leaves me soooooo soft. Oh my goodness!!!

Body Wash

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup aloe

1 tsp vegetable glycerin

1 Tbsp guar gum

3 cups distilled water

1 cup Castile soap (I use this brand here)

In a blender mix all ingredients except Castile soap. Blend until thick and creamy. After blending stir creamy mixture with Castile, I use lavender scent at this time you can add any essential oil you want I add Sweet Orange. Then put in any 32 oz container and enjoy! The smell is so wonderful you’ll love it!

Foaming Hand Soap

1/4 cup of Castile soap here

1 cup water

Mix together and put in any foaming hand soap dispenser. I add essential oils to this also.

For both of these I made mason jar dispensers. I just saved the pumps and drilled holes in the tops then glued them in place. Wahla you have a fancy dancy dispenser.

Cove Castile Soap

Benefits of the Ingredients Found in Our Soap All of our soaps contain a moisturizing blend of Argan, Hemp and Jojoba oils. Our Lavender-scented soap also contains the wonderfully fragrant addition of Lavender essential oil. We’ve highlighted the benefits of these ingredients below, so you know what to look forward to from your bottle.

Lavender Essential Oil is a popular essential oil frequently used in a variety of forms including aromatherapy oil, perfumes, gels, infusions, lotions, and soaps. Known as a natural sleep aid, people often use lavender oil to help regulate their sleeping patterns. Other benefits include:
– beautifully fragrant
– good for sinuses
– natural sleep aid
– calming and soothing aromas

Argan Oil is a highly moisturizing oil derived from the argan tree native to Morocco. Typically, pure castile soap can be quite drying for hair, so the addition of argan oil helps to boost the moisturizing properties of the soap.

Jojoba Oil is the only oil that closely resembles human sebum – a waxy substance naturally produced by glands within the skin. This makes it a great choice for natural skin conditioner.

Hemp Oil is rich in proteins, essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, and vitamin E antioxidants. These nutrients have a number of great effects when used on skin.

What Makes Our Soap Different

You can feel good about using this soap. It’s natural, vegan, and fully biodegradable. We left out the bad stuff, so there’s no detergents, no foaming agents, no chemicals, and no animal products – only pure, certified organic plant oils transformed into soap. We keep it simple and eco-conscious.

We care about your skin. The added argan, hemp, and jojoba oils are packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. For good measure, we also threw in some olive oil and vegetable glycerin. Together, these ingredients work to repair and illuminate your complexion.

But, it isn’t just bath soap. You can dilute and mix it to create a thousand different personal care and cleaning products (well, maybe not that many). Use it as a body wash, hand soap, shampoo, facial cleanser, shaving cream, baby wash, pet shampoo, dish soap, laundry detergent, scrubbing cleaner, glass cleaner, insecticide, anti-fungal plant spray, and many more! Because we’ve got your back, several of our favorite recipes are included right on the bottle.

Men’s Aftershave

I found this recipe for aftershave for my husband and he absolutely loves it! It leaves his skin so soft actually our grandpup loves to lick it off his face. He says it doesn’t irritate his skin like regular aftershave does. This year for Christmas I might make up a bunch of these for my guys!!

4 Tbsp aloe gel

4 Tbsp witch hazel 

2 Tbsp distilled water

4 tsp vegetable glycerine

5-10 drops of each Cedar wood and Frankincense essential oils

I used a left over hot sauce bottle which I washed repeatedly and thoroughly. Could you imagine if I didn’t whoa he’d definitely feel the burn lol but I just mixed all the ingredients and shook it all up.

I love Cedar wood and Frankincense oils it gives it a manly woodsy scent with wrinkle fighting elements. You know it’s a battle we all face… Hope this works as well for you as it did for my better half.

I Needed to Lose Weight Too

My wife lost weight nearly six years ago by using Nutrisystem. She was able to wean herself off of it after losing all the weight, and she has not gained a single pound back since. That is one of the nice things about Nutrisystem. It teaches you how to control your portions much better, and it also teaches you how to eat better too. While she has not gained any weight, the same cannot be said for me. That is why I did a search for the Nutrisystem for Men cost.

I wanted to see if it was still affordable, and I honestly did not know if it would be a different price for men. I was going to ask my wife to help me since she does her own meals now so successfully, but I thought that I would just check into this first. She has tried to help me in the past, and I have always complained about the size of the meals she wanted me to eat. read more

How to Pick a Power Company

I have been trying to figure this out ever since Texas started deregulating power distribution. Of course it used to be quite simple when you got your power from a local monopoly. They decided what you paid and that was all that there was too. Now there are probably around a hundred power companies in Texas. If you look around you can find a number of web pages likes which list the ones which are available where you live, usually there will be around three or four on the site, but it depends a lot on how many people there are in the are. Obviously a lot of power companies want to sell power in places where there a whole lot of consumers all living one by the other. read more

Findign Way to Save for My New Car

I want to buy a new car in the spring but I had to lend family some money and I spent a lot of my own during a bad time so it is going to be tougher than I thought to do it on time. I saved some money on my TV bill by looking into direct tv packages. This was better than what I had been paying. I then switched to a less expensive but still good quality food for my dog as well as buying myself less snacks and making more of my own food from scratch. This has also been more healthy for me. That in turn has given me more energy to work longer hours and stay more focused so I am earning more and this will help me reach my goal faster.

I am planning to buy a Prius of course to save money on gas. I think I will get a Prius V. They said it gets a bit lower mileage and handles a wee bit less well than the regular Prius but it has a lot more room. I do live a bit far from the city so need something with a bit of space for shopping trips. I am not sure if I will get the extra package though. It sounds nice the auto car spacer thing for cruise control sounds great for the freeway but my freeway driving is fairly limited since I live out of town. I looked at other cars at first but why not pay about the same and get a hybrid, I figured. The extra package adds a decent amount to the price though and I am not sure if worth it. I may just stick with a basic V3 instead of the v5 but it is tempting if I can save enough.

Our Fiber Optic Internet at Home Seems Faster Than What I Use at Work

We got a new TV with built in streaming apps for Christmas. Our daughter got her own game console. Both of the kids got new laptops. It was their first real computers. I got my wife a new tablet for her birthday. I have a fast computer I use for work. All of the hardware combined with our smartphones and security cameras being connected to the Internet made it so going to to get fiber optic service worth it. It is a much nicer experience to use those fancy new bandwidth hungry electronics on a really fast FIOS Internet service.Fiber Optic Internet at Home

It is tough to imagine the speeds of fiber optic Internet service unless you have tried it. The only comparable thing I can think of is the fast Internet I had when I was in college. When using their computers connected directly into the Internet backbone, it was just a second to download huge file sizes. Fiber optic is the next best thing to that. read more

Tacoma Based Internet Service Providers

I moved out to Tacoma recently, or well not in the city proper, but in the nearby area. It is a pretty nice area, and I am glad that I made the move. I have some things left on my to do list for moving, and one of those, is to get internet set up at my new place. I have been sitting here browsing for awhile, and finally came across this link which is specific to my area, which is nice and so maybe I can find the best deals on internet connections that are specific to the area where I am now living.

I am not hard on cash, but when it comes to utilities and everything in life, I like to get the cheapest things possible. read more
