20 Ways To Make Your Own Natural Personal Care Products
We all have to spend our hard earned money on personal, everyday products. Some of those personal products have become so expensive that we always look for alternative ways to obtain them. A lot of people are starting to make their own personal products. These products are not only cheaper than going to the store, they are also natural and healthier for your body. Let’s take a look at some natural personal products that are healthier for you and your pockets.
You can make your own shampoo by using just two ingredients. Just mix together one cup of water and one tablespoon of baking soda. Mix well and shampoo your hair like you normally would with store bought shampoo.
Honey Vanilla Bubble Bath
Want to take a bubble bath and some like calming natural products? This Honey Vanilla Bubble Bath is very easy to make. You need to mix together 1/2 cup of light almond oil, 1/4 cup of honey, 1/2 cup of mild liquid hand or body soap, 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract. Pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup under running water. Keep excess in the refrigerator.
Non-Toxic Eye Liner
Buying eyeliner from the store can be very pricy. You can make your own non-toxic eye liner by mixing 2 teaspoons coconut oil, 4 teaspoons aloe vera gel, 1 – 2 capsules of activated charcoal for black, or ½ tsp cocoa powder for Brown. Store mixture in an airtight container.
Non-Toxic Vapor Rub
Store bought vapor rubs are expensive and can smell funny. This Non-Toxic Vapor Rub can be made by following these directions: In a small glass measuring cup or mason jar set over a small pot of hot water on the stove on low heat, gently melt 3 Tbsp grass fed ghee, add 1 Tbsp of beeswax pellets and stir until melted. Remove the oil from the heat and allow it to come to room temperature.
In a small, empty and clean 2 oz. glass jar, add 1 Tbsp of sweet almond oil and 1 tsp of R.C. blend essential oil. When the ghee/beeswax mixture is cool enough to touch, pour into the jar with the almond/essential oil mixture. Stir to combine. Place in the refrigerator to set.
Store at room temperature so it is soft enough to rub on the feet or chest. Rub as needed, every 3-4 hours on the chest or soles of the feet.
