  • 1/4 cup shea butter
  • 1/8 cup cup aloe vera gel
  • 1/8 cup jojoba oil
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 cup castile soap
  • 15-20 drops essential oils optional


  1. Fill a small pot with 2" of water, and bring to a boil. Add shea butter into a mason jar and place the jar in the pot of water. Allow shea butter to melt, then add in aloe vera gel and jojoba oil, and mix. Remove from heat and add in xanthan gum, castile soap and essential oils. Mix together until fully incorporated.
  2. Pour into a glass mason jar, or other container with a lid. Use as you would any other body wash (i.e. avoid contact with eyes and for external use only).
