You may have noticed on Instagram that I recently had surgery. I had been diagnosed with Uterine cancer and had a complete?hysterectomy 4 weeks ago. I haven’;t written about it here, but maybe someday. The important information is that I’;m cancer-free. ??

The precautions they take to help prevent the spread of harmful germs leave you with really dry and flaky skin. They gave me these large sanitizing wipes to wipe down my entire body from neck to toes. Then, of course, the solution they wipe you down with once in the surgery room causes even more dryness. Even though I normally don’;t have sensitive skingifts for grandma, this has left me with really dry skin.

I used my sugar scrubs, which helped, but my skin would be dry and itchy by midday. After breaking out with hives one afternoon (still, haven’;t figured out why) I figured I’;d try making a ph balanced DIY body soap using Castile soap. It couldn’;t hurt, right? See what else you can use Castile for!

I’;ve been using this body wash and my homemade?whipped?body butter and my skin is getting better. While I’;m at it, I may try this Chocolate Facial Mask too!

Once you have the supplies, you’;ll be able to make several batches that will last you a month or more. Store in a shatter-proof bottle.

I put it in a cute glass bottle because well…;.. it’;s much cuter for photos this way. But I transferred it to a plastic travel toiletries bottle for the shower. No one needs broken glass in the shower, right?

I also designed a quick and cute gift tag or label in case you’;d like to make a batch for quick gifts. Find your labels in the Printable Vault.?

Come the holidays, you’;ll be looking for inexpensive DIY gift ideas. You should pin this for later! A small plastic bottle of this would be great in a Blessing Bag.?

This body wash could also be used for your hand pump soap dispensers. Tailor the scents for each room or use.?
