    1. Jocelyn, I have not heard that stickiness was an issue in this recipe. However, you could just leave it out all together if you’d prefer

    1. Jan, you could definitely sub the Jojoba for Avocado carrier. The Avocado will have a thicker consistency but is very moisturizing as it has vitamins A, B, D, E and beta carotene in it

  1. This looks perfect! I have always wanted to try Relax. Does this have a shelf life? Is there a certain type of plastic bottle you should get?

    1. It’s a great blend to try! This recipe is good for 1-2 weeks, since there is no preservative. We generally recommend PET plastic for EOs.

    1. Maria, you would want to add a preservative of your choice. I would recommend doing some online research to find a preservative that will work best for you

  2. I can’t wait to try this! I’ve used Castile soap to make body wash before, but never added honey or the Relax blend! I can’t wait to try!

    1. LC, body wash didn’t feel sticky to some who have tried this recipe. If you are worried about that at all, you can leave it out from the recipe 🙂

  3. This sounds so great! I’m trying to eliminate all of the products in my home with toxic chemicals and switch over to DIY essential oil products so I can’t wait to try this!

  4. Sounds like a good recipe to try. I might also try using coconut milk in place of the water.
    For those who are worried about the honey, it doesn’t cause stickiness when mixed with the other ingredients. It is has a lot of good properties that it adds to the body wash.

  5. Love this!!!! I’m especially excited to make this as it is safe for kids!!! That way family members of all ages can enjoy!!!!
    Thank you Plant Therapy!!!!:)
