Body Wash

Nourishing Homemade Body Wash
  • ½ cup canned coconut milk
  • ⅔ cup Dr. Bronner's castile soap,  Baby Mild
  • 3 tsp vitamin E oil 
  • 5 drops of essential oil
  • 2 tsp vegetable glycerin 
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bottle. Shake and use on either a sponge or washcloth. So easy!
  2. This body wash has a very short lifespan since it lacks preservatives, so it's best to keep this body wash in the fridge and just pull out a little as needed. 


Natural Foundation

  • 2 teaspoons of argan oil or jojoba oil
  • 1 teaspoon of shea butter
  • 1/2 tsp emulsifying wax
  • 1 tablespoon aloe gel
  • 1 teaspoon witch hazel
  • 1-4 teaspoons non-nano zinc oxide
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1//2-1 tsp mica powder of choice
  • 1/2 tsp clay of choice (if using)
  • OR 2-3 teaspoons of All-natural mineral powder in color of choice

Melt the shea butter, argan oil and emulsifying wax in a double boiler until completely melted.
Add the aloe and witch hazel and whisk until completely incorporated and smooth.
Turn heat off.
Slowly, start adding colors. Start with zinc and clays until desired coverage is reached. It will still be too pale at this point.
Add mica powders and cocoa powder a tiny pinch at a time until desired color is reached.
Dip the tip of a spoon into the mixture and let cool for a few seconds. Test the color and coverage on your forehead to make sure you’ve achieved the right tone for your skin.
Spoon the mixture into the desired container and let cool.

This can be easily stored in a glass jar or old makeup container.
