I really liked the body wash idea but can you explain me why oatmeal and red gram flour is used. And it is possible to make this mix without them. Also since I live in a hostel I wanted a mix that I have to make only once in while. And that I dont have to invest too much time in making it. But your recipe here contains milk and honey. Would using these ingredients reduce it’s shelf live? Can you suggest something? Because I am looking for alternatives to chemical based soap and body washes. I would be happy to DIY stuff.
oatmeal / wheat bran
soya flour / red gram flour
curd / milk
Dried Neem leaves powder
you can replace milk with milk powder and mix it with water, so it wnt be problenm in hostel to arrange for
