Most of us love to use body wash or a favorite scented bar soap that doesn’t come in a body wash form. But one thing that we can all concord on this, bar soaps are a lot more affordable compare to the body wash.

So, let me show the way to effortlessly turn your favorite bar soap into a creamy, luxurious body wash. the best part of this concoction is that you can be creative by adding some essential oils to make it more pleasant-smelling body wash.


You’ll Need:

  • Dove beauty bar (3.17oz) or Olay , Ivory soap
  • Cheese grater (or knife for softer soap)
  • water
  • few drops of Vitamin E oil or olive oil (* this is optional if your skin is dry and want more moisturizer)
  • clean tub container or foaming dispenser for body wash

1Using a cheese grater, finely grate your favorite bar of soap or you can use a knife and slice the soap off if it is in softer form.


2Add 2 cups water to the grated soap and stir over medium heat until the soap completely dissolves and the water looks “milky.”

3 Let the mixture sit to cool down for around two hours. At this point, it will start resembling a body-wash type gel, now you can add the vitamin E oil or olive oil (this is optional). However, some water may reduced while heating that may resulted the mixture to become too thick, you can simply add a bit of water to reach that consistency that you like and re-heat the mixture if needed and let it cool down once again. Transfer body wash into a squeeze container and use.
