No, it is completely up to you if you want to add essential oil into your homemade shower gel or not. You may go for a non-scented shower gel if you don't like adding essential oil to your gel. Or you may also keep the quantity of the essential oil very little if you prefer a shower gel with an extremely light scent.

Shaking the mixture well before use

Now remove the funnel from the bottle and apply lid to the bottle. Always keep in mind to shake the mixture very well before use; this is recommended in order to ensure good mixing of all the ingredients to give better results. So, shake the bottle very well for even distribution of the oils.

How to use the homemade shower gel?

You can keep the homemade shower gel as a replacement to your branded soaps or branded shower gels. Never forget to pour some water on your skin before applying the shower gel. So wet your skin and add a tablespoon of shower gel onto a wet shower sponge.

You can also apply the shower gel on a wet cloth, a wet puff, or directly onto your wet hands if you are not comfortable with using a shower sponge. Now lather the shower gel and apply it well on your body. Rinse it off after a few minutes of massage.

To wrap it up!

No one wants any compromise on the quality of the product that he is going to use on his skin. For this reason, market items, no matter how well-known brands they belong to, never satisfy all the people in the world. So, one should make a little effort to make his own shower gel according to his needs and tastes to take a better advantage from it for a long time.
