Zero Waste: Self-Care

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.

1.Shampoo/Conditioner Bars

There are several recipes online for these bars, they are quite easy to make, and I love what they do to my hair!

2.Soaps

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!

3.Moisturiser

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.

5.Deodorant

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.
