Beauty Products to Stop Buying and Start Making at Home

Deodorant 

1

Ingredients:

  • 6 T. virgin coconut oil (this has anti bacterial properties, so you don’t want the more highly processed stuff)
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder (or you can also use cornstarch)
  • 2 T. shea butter
  • 20-30 drops tea tree oil

Slightly melt the coconut oil with the beeswax.  Add the clay and mix and add the arrowroot powder and mix well. Add the tea tree oil, and mix in and you’re done. To use, we allow it to harden in a small container, then “break it out” so that each person has their own little “stick”.

 

Shampoo

2

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup dr. bronners
  • 1 tsp peppermint
  • 1 tsp rosemary oil
  • ¼ tsp almond oil

Instructions:

Pour all ingredients into a bottle, and gently swish to mix. Use 5-6 squirts each time. To condition I use another spray bottle with 1 cup water and 1 cup apple cider vinegar. Spritz 2-3 times and rinse well.

Lotion 

3

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of tallow
  • 1 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup beeswax.

In a heat-proof container, add the oils and beeswax. I put my glass measuring cup in a pot of boiling water. Heat on medium high heat until all the oil is melted. Pour the hot liquid in a muffin pan and allow to cool completely. “pop” them out and store in the fridge during the hot summers. To use, simply rub anywhere on your body. Your body heat will help soften and “melt” the lotion on your skin.
