Have you ever read what is in a body wash bottle? Chemical's you can't even pronounce are what make up most of it. I like the smell of Peppermint. It is enlivening and smells good plus I don't want to strip my skin of oils. You can pay a lot of money for body wash and soaps so I investigated some alternatives, tweaked the recipe and came up with this version which I like. It was a little bit of an investment to buy all the various ingredients but I managed to order everything on Amazon.com and have it sent directly to the house. I am sure I can make several variations of this shampoo but in the end I should have a very economical product I can make at home. I also love the idea of not buying a lot of plastic bottles and using and reusing things I have around the house already.
1/4 cup Distilled or Rain Water
1/4 cup liquid Castile Soap - I use Dr Bronners organic baby mild soap
2 tsp Jojoba Oil
1/8 tsp Peppermint Essential Oil
1/8 tsp Tea Tree Essential Oil
1/4 cup Aloe Vera
1 tsp. Glycerin
1 tsp. honey
Flip Cap Bottles or Foaming Bottles to dispense - You can repurpose an old shampoo bottle or use a Squeeze Ketchup Bottle purchased at the $1 store

Mix all ingredients, then
add 1/4 cup distilled water or rain water.
Store in a bottle. Use as you would any body wash. The smell is fantastic and it leaves your skin smooth and glowing!
Your entire body will be left nourished, quenched, smooth, and invigorated. It smells delightful too!
