ESSENTIALS:

These are the most versatile ingredients that should be fixtures in your pantry

  • Cold Pressed Coconut Oil: Use for deodorant, moisturizer, hair treatment, lip balm & toothpaste

  • Baking Soda: Use for deodorant, “shampoo”, face & body scrubs, toothpaste, cleaning abrasive

  • Arrowroot Powder (Cornstarch): Use for deodorant, absorbs moisture

  • Castile Soap: Basic soap base, use for hand and body soap, basic home spray cleaner.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar: Use for hair rinse, skin toner, acne treatment

  • Raw Honey: Use for face masks, soaps, spot treatments. Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, & anti-inflammatory

 

 

 

 

CARRIER OILS:

Use as a moisturizer, or in soaps and face & hair masks

  • Dry Skin: Jojoba, Olive and Avocado Oil. Great for intense moisture masks

  • Sensitive skin: Sweet Almond and Calendula Oil

  • Oily Skin: Coconut, Jojoba, and Grapeseed Oil

 

 

 

ESSENTIAL OILS:

Start out with one or two oils you are fond of. I find lavender, tea tree and rosemary are the ones I use the most. Please be mindful; use essential oils only for topical use and always dilute when using.

  • Rosemary: Regenerating, uplifting, use in shampoo

  • Lavender: Calming, anti-bacterial, use in deodorant

  • Tea Tree: Strongest natural anti-septic, used in deodorant or toothpaste great for acne and troubled skin

  • Peppermint: Energizing, cooling. Used in shampoo or foot rubs

  • Orange: Uplifting

  • Eucalyptus: Energizing, anti-viral, great for sore muscle and joint pain

 

 

 

 

STORAGE & PREPERATION:

Be mindful selecting containers. While glass or ceramic is best for storage, unbreakable containers are more suitable for the shower.

  • Soap Dispensers: Have one for each sink and shower

  • Small metal bowls: Use for mixing and for hair rinse

  • Glass jars with tight fitting lids: Find what works best for each of your products (easy to use, size, etc)

  • Clean Spoons
