If you have run out of body soap, you can always quickly make these at home and pamper your skin.
Homemade body wash using a bar of soap
If you are someone who is bored of the same old soap, and tired of using the bar, this interesting alternative is for you. You can melt your soap bar to make a body wash. Just take six to seven cups of distilled water, along with two bars of soap. First boil the water, and simultaneously microwave the bars of soap for about 30 seconds, until they melt. Take it out and then slowly add it to the boiling water, while stirring continuously. Make sure the liquid soap and water have mixed thoroughly. Now transfer the mixture to a glass bottle and make sure it cools down. It will then start to naturally thicken as that happens. Let it stay for about 24 hours, before you take a look. Before you start using it, make sure the consistency is not too thick. If it is, you can add some more water.

Homemade body wash using coconut milk
This is another interesting one which can benefits those who have oily and sensitive skin. Just take one cup of coconut milk, two cups of any mild liquid soap, two spoons of any essential oil of your choice — could go with jojoba oil. You can also add four to five drops of lavender essential oil. Next, take two teaspoons of glycerin and one teaspoon of raw honey.
First, pour the coconut milk into a transparent bottle and then add the liquid soap to it. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bottle, close the lid of the bottle and shake well. When you take a bath, pour the contents of the bottle into a loofah and use.
