Are you looking for an alternative to the store bought body washes? Have you been wanting to know how you can make something at home that is great for your body inside and out?
Our skin is the largest organ in our body and it absorbs within seconds what you put on it. So if you are paying attention to what is going inside your body, you may be at that stage when you are interested at look at option for outside your body.
You certainly don’t have to go and make this, there are great products out there, so shop around. The key ingredient is liquid castile soap.
