DIY Milk and Honey Body Wash: Spa Days at Home

You guys already know how much I love using honey in my skin care routine! So I just couldn’t resist sharing this Homemade Milk and Honey Body Wash recipe. Four simple ingredients will leave your skin feeling fresh, clean, soft, and incredibly moisturized. Check it out!

DIY Homemade Milk and Honey Body Wash
  • ½ cup canned coconut milk
  • ½ cup liquid castile soap
  • ⅓ cup raw honey
  • 7 drops of essential oil (peppermint or lavender for a calming experience, lemon or orange for a pick-me-up)
  • 2 tsp vegetable glycerin, optional
  • 1 liquid soap dispenser or bottle
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bottle. Shake the ingredients together until the honey is fully dissolved.
  2. Shake the bottle before each use. Use on either a sponge or washcloth.


This body wash has a very short lifespan since it lacks preservatives, so it’s best to keep this body wash in the fridge and just pull out a little as needed. I use this within 2 weeks and freeze the extra, if needed. If you’d like to extend the shelf-life and create a recipe that can be stored at room temperature, replace the coconut milk with distilled or boiled and cooled water.
