I use coconut oil for a lot of stuff-hair mask before shampooing it, as a body moisturizer post-shower, massage oil, etc. I also made DIY toothpaste once from baking soda, gratted lime and peppermint oil, but I switched back to Organic toothpaste because I didn’t want to risk cavities if it didn’t work as well.

I use honey as a face wash. It’s great for sensitive skin and if I’m having skin issues I just add a drop of lavender oil to it. (Don’t get your face too wet before you rub it in.)

i boil deep red rose petals and make my own rosewater…. its great for spritzing on your hair and scalp, as well as just smells yummy and freshens up your skin.

Great ideas! I think the DIY toothpaste would be great for during the day, just to freshen up. I worry about too much fluoride!

I like to make a salt scrub with sea salt and extra virgin olive oil – your skin feels heavenly afterwards. I also use oatmeal masks, yogurt masks, honey as an antibacterial topical for acne, fresh aloe vera gel, and some other things I can’t remember off the top of my head… I love diy!

Also I use a mix of cornstarch and cinnamon to fluff up my hair when it gets a bit greasy at the roots.

The cornstarch and cinnamon mix is genius! I never thought about that! I almost always hate the dry shampoos, so will definitely give this a try!

if you have dark hair, baking cocoa makes a great dry shampoo. sounds kind of weird to put it in your hair, but it actually works great since it’s so finely milled.

I use olive oil as a makeup remover :) It takes off waterproof and regular makeup very easily and it is a great moisturizer. It will also reduce under eye circles with continuous use!

I use sugar & water mixed together very well as an exfoliant! It works really well and leaves your hands or anywhere on your body feeling soft and refreshed! :)

When I colour my mums hair with Henna powder the packets usually advice to add warm water but we ignore that haha. We mix the henna powder with egg, yoghurt and rose tea and when we wash the henna out later on her hair is so richly coloured and silky smooth! All those ingredients work wonders on your hair

I have yet to try it, but I heard that if you rub coffee grinds in your hair after you wash it, your hair will be super soft and shiny. The coffee grinds have to be used, so after your morning coffee you take the grinds into the shower and rub them in your hair and wash them out.
