DIY Olive Oil Body Wash

There's nothing more refreshing and relaxing than taking a shower after a long day. Normally, everybody uses soap for bathing but do you know that a shower gel can make a huge difference? Shower gel might still sound a luxury for most of us. But he aroma and the foamy texture of shower gel can give you a totally different experience. Also, shower gels are softer on the skin when compared to soap.

Though there is a wide range of shower gels available in the market, if you are looking for a cost-effective one, you can easily make a DIY body wash at home. And a natural shower gel has many more benefits than the ready-made products that we buy. Let us see what are the ingredients required and how to make it.
