Previously I made a post about self-care investments that will help you save money in the long-term, click here if you are interested in reading that post. On today’s post, I want to share with you self-care products that can be made at home. These products have fewer chemicals and less plastic. Living a frugal life doesn’t just help us save money, but it also benefits our health and our planet’s health.
There are several recipes online for these bars, they are quite easy to make, and I love what they do to my hair!
There are so many recipes online with really natural ingredients for you to make at home. It’s also a really good activity to do with kids and teach them a bit about a plastic-free life!
I’ve seen plenty of recipes online and even tried one. Absolutely loved it, it made my skin super smooth. Definitely try this at home.
4.Toothbrush and Toothpaste
I 100% advise you to get a bamboo toothbrush, they work just as well as the plastic ones but are way better for the environment. You can make toothpaste at home, I tried one recipe that had coconut oil, and I wasn’t a big fan of it! I’m still on the hunt for a more natural toothpaste with a pleasant taste.
To be honest, I’ve never tried to make deodorant at home, but I have bought natural, free of chemicals deodorants, and let me tell you, they are great! You don’t get stinky throughout the day, and it makes your skin super hydrated. I definitely want to try to make one at home, it will be a lot cheaper.
These are all the tips I have for you today! Thank you so much for reading it, and I’ll see you in my next post.
