Create Your Own Scented Wash

This is ideal for those with allergies who want a scent and SLS free wash but I add my own choice of NYR essential oils to customise it. It makes a lovely bubble bath as well and is the only one I use because it's free from the Sodium Lauryl Sulphate many other brands use that brings me out in a rash.

Good for sensitive skin

Had been using another brand for years but wanted to switch to NYR for various reasons. The only real ask from this unscented shower gel was that it didn’t cause any sort of skin reaction. Happy to say it didn’t and I’ll continue using. Would love to try adding ingredients to make my own potions but given my overly fussy skin probably had better stick with the plain stuff to be safe!

Great for my sensitive skin.

I’ve been using the Create your own hair and body wash for at least 8 years now. I’m so glad I found something that suits my eczema prone skin. It’s very concentrated so a little goes a long way. And I like the fact that I can add my own choice of essential oils. Please don’t stop making this!

It is lovely!

This product is lovely. I use it mainly a shampoo, but you can use it as a body wash too. It is mild and great for sensitive skin. Very happy with my purchase.

Excellent product as always

Simple and adaptable

This product is simple with no plastic beads and it allows the use of essential oils to create an individually tailored fragrance to the body wash. I’ve been using it for more than 10 years and it is always consistent.

Love this Body Wash!

I love this body wash! I’ve been using it for years now. I have sensitive skin so need a perfume free wash. It also leaves my skin feeling very soft and moisturised, so an added bonus for me is that I don’t need to use a body moisturiser every day after my shower - I now only use a moisturiser once a week! Highly recommend! Thank you Neal’s Yard ❤️

Great stuff

Bought for my son who is a big fan of patchouli so I added patchouli oil to it and he loves it!
