Have you ever thought about making your own bath, body, and cleaning products - you know, living a little healthier - only to be dissuaded by the sheer number of recipes that you’d have to master? I mean, imagine it: you start with shampoo, then there’s conditioner, then of course body wash and Keep Reading
Bath and Body
I absolutely love to DIY bath and body products for myself, my husband and my kiddos. If you have been around the blog for a while, you know that I don’t like having toxic stuff in my home and that goes double for body products that we use! I only want my family exposed to products that are healthy for us.
I have a lot of DIY recipes for bath and body products, including homemade makeup remover wipes, homemade summer deodorant, oatmeal lavender goat milk soap, peppermint toothpaste, Shea butter lotion, homemade face wash and so many more! The list of my homemade body products goes on and on.
Almost any bath product you love can be made at home with non-toxic ingredients. One of the best things about DIY-ing your favorite products is that you can choose the scents you use! You can also decide what kind of ingredients to source.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees. All opinions are 100% mine. Our lips take a lot of abuse. Think about it: We we wash hot and cold liquids over them, scrape our food on them, they’re exposed to the weather pollutants, and the list goes on and on. And yet, they Keep Reading
I’m not a doctor, or even a certified herbalist, so I can’t give you any scientific facts, or cite studies or anything like that, but what I can tell you is that my mother use to make garlic infused oil anytime one of my siblings or I started complaining of an earache, and it worked on almost a Keep Reading
Homemade mouth wash is a fantastic way to improve your dental health using all natural ingredients! I’ve mentioned before that I have really bad teeth, and how I’m working really hard to strengthen them through natural tooth care, mostly by making my own, homemade remedies. Namely, I’ve made my Keep Reading
There are lots of things that just aren’t worth buying the cheap versions of. Things that can impact your health, and in the long run, make it more prudent - cost-effective even - to go ahead and buy the more expensive version with wholesome ingredients. Like I said a few weeks ago, I’m not Keep Reading
I’ve never been huge fan of hand sanitizer. When you kill bad bacteria, you kill good bacteria along with it. It seems to me that when you kill all the bacteria around you, you never give your immune system a chance to build immunities. At the risk of looking like a redneck, country bumpkin, this Keep Reading
Ready to pamper your skin? This baking soda face wash will make you feel like you just spent the day at a spa! We all know that exfoliation is good for the skin, but sugar - and especially salt - scrub is just so abrasive. Okay, so I know it wouldn’t be exfoliation if it wasn’t abrasive, but Keep Reading
I’ve been interested in making my own toothpaste for a long time. I’m not a fan of fluoridated pastes, and Tom’s is quite expensive. Add to that, neither of those two options contain remineralizing ingredients, which, as someone with terrible, terrible teeth, is important to me. Still, making my Keep Reading
Making homemade bar soap is easy. Ingredients are fairly accessible (you do usually have to order lye, but with Amazon and eBay, that’s no problem), And you only have to work with cold process soap for about ten minutes before setting it aside for three weeks to cure. Or you can make hot process Keep Reading
Remember when you were a kid, and use to play outside in the summer sun for hours at a time? Remember how bad those sunburns were when you forgot to wear your sunblock? Or maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who tan. I’m not! And boy do those sunburns hurt! Now that I’m an adult, I don’t seem to Keep Reading
