Is there anything better on a hot summer night – after you spent all day outside – than taking a shower? Well, if you count taking a shower with your own homemade shower gel! No, seriously. There’s nothing more important on hot days or when a summer thunder storm caught you on your way home (been there, done that).

Why is it then that all the shower gels that get promoted in summer are awfully sweet and heavy? Rose? Mango? Passionfruit? No, thank you. They don’t make me feel refreshed.

Homemade shower gel | LOOK WHAT I MADE ...

What better excuse to try out making my own shower gel. And guess what: it’s not that hard. To be honest: it’s pretty easy, much cheaper and the smell is heavenly!

I based my homemade shower gel on glycerin soap and perfumed it with stone pine, cedar, rosemary and orange. Can I tell you: it’s soooooo good! Like a walk in a forest (and I love my walks!). I also added some aloe vera gel to treat my skin after a day in the sun.
