We have diluted apple cider vinegar conditioner in an old body wash bottle, homemade laundry detergent in a mason jar, black soap face wash in an old hair product bottle, homemade deodorant in an old deodorant container, shea butter and homemade lotion, both in old lotion containers, homemade tooth powder in a container I found at the dollar store, and store-bought olive oil soap with only 3 ingredients, no chemicals, and no perfumes.
It’s a motley little crew of easy, cheap, and effective products. Shampoo is missing from the ranks, as I have stopped using it. I am now exclusively water washing, which I will discuss in a future post. My sunscreen is still commercial. I do use aloe on my skin, and it is extremely effective at soothing my eczema, but I’m currently waiting for our sick aloe plant to perk up. I do not use makeup regularly enough for it to earn a spot in the picture. Also my floss is missing from the picture.
But yeah, that’s it. That is my extremely low maintenance supply of hygiene (and one cleaning) products. It does not take me long to get ready in the morning! Maybe if I really wanted to take care of my face I would have more, but I’m happy with this little assortment.
What types of homemade products do you use? Anything you think I’m missing (I’m still surprised by how small that ended up being)?
