For the past few weeks I have been really considering the products I use, how much they cost, how good are they for me really and if it is worth making my own. The more research I did, the more I was convinced that I should I really start making my own house hold goods. So far the list of goods that I will be attempting to make over the next few weeks are:
- Body Lotion
- Lip Balm
- Body Scrub
I know there are a boat load of items that I can make on my own, but I think this is a good start. For some of the other items I have to wait for the ingredients to arrive in the mail. However, this week I am sharing with you my experience with making my own body scrub. Out of all the items this one seemed to be the easiest to make.
The ingredients I used to make my own sugar scrub include: Pure olive oil, Raw Sugar, and Essence Oil (I used tangerine). You will also need a jar that can close to store the items, a measuring cup and a mixing utensil.
Watch the scrub making fun here:
