Generally you need closable bottles, curd soap, olive oil or direct nature liquid soap, essential vegetable oils and fragrant additives. You also need water. Look at the basic steps:
The required materials can be found in health food stores
The first steps to making shower gel yourself are always the same: cut the core soap into small pieces with a knife or use liquid soap.

Lavender – coconut shower gel
The best lavender shower gel is prepared with lavender tea instead of essential vegetable oil – we recommend freshly brewed tea. So the shower gel has a calming effect. First pour curd soap into a sealable bottle and add 100 milliliters of hot lavender tea. Shake until the soap has completely dissolved in the tea. When the mixture has cooled, add a teaspoon of olive oil.
Of course, you can create mild skin with shower gel with honey
The honey has an antibacterial effect and makes the skin mild. The shower gel with honey also moisturizes and delays the aging process. In the picture you can see that the honey is not heated. So the important enzymes are not lost. There are a number of optional ingredients that you can use. We have used some of them in our recipes. Look at the others here:
- Lavender oil has a soothing effect, which makes it perfect for taking a shower in the evening. But we recommend peppermint oil when you take a shower in the morning.
- Glycerin has a moisturizing effect.
- If you decide to cook on the stove, add a teabag or herb in the water.
