DIY Oatmeal Chamomile Bodywash

Shea butter creates a layer that seals in moisture. Castile Soap is used as the base ensuring a gentle luxurious lather. It is derived from natural ingredients that break down easily, so it’s much better for the environment. Oatmeal and Dried Chamomile act as an exfoliator. Orange Essential Oil is an effective skin brightener and toner (it also smells fantastic).
