DIY African Black Soap Body Wash

I call this Urban ASMR, with all the natural sounds of the city, my ritual of Sanskrit mantras, and singing bowl. #diyskincare & #holisticwellness unite!

Black soap tends to melt, so I figured making it into a lush body wash will solve that problem and give me the chance to make the black soap less drying on my skin. To do that, i used Rose Water, which softens skin and attracts moisture. 

You can change up the essential oils, but I used ones that work on skin renewal and smoothing. Bet you didn't know Vanilla helps reduce acne huh? Or that ginger is an anti inflammatory for you immunity, but also you skin, reducing redness and swelling from rashes.
