This past week I tried some of the recipes from Easiest DIY Beauty Supplies Ever, and I wanted to share how it went.
First I had to go to the store and buy supplies. I bought everything for $45.15.
Cream of tartar, food coloring, olive oil, honey x2, cinnamon sticks, coconut oil, sea salt, corn starch, baking soda x 2, coconut milk, vinegar, lemon and oranges (not pictured), and brown sugar.
And here is what I have tried so far
1. Essential Oils
I used the recipe from Simple DIY Recipe for Essential Oils. I tried making it in oven and only cooked it for 3 hours thinking that was what I had read. ( sometimes I mess up with all the kids running around lol) However I reread and seen I should have baked for at least six hours. I also, tried using the handkerchief. It came out smelling weak and oily so I will try this again this weekend. I will let you know how it goes.
2. Hair Shine and Defrizzer
This recipe was not on my first post, but it was so simple. It is just a little bit of coconut oil mixed with water in a spreay bottle. i loved it. NOTE: Only takes one or two squirts for it to work. My hair is almost to my butt so I thought I would need more… I DID NOT!!! After washing and trying again, it was great.
Even though it did not feel like it was working in the shower, once my hair was dry i loved the feel and the smell.
With my hair I need to feel it lathered up. With this I did not. It did not feel like it was cleaned. So I will play around with this recipe and get back with you.
5. DIY Hair Wax
Click here for recipe This worked for me and I liked it, but be careful it can get hot.
6. Better Hand Lotion-
My recipe- coconut oil, olive oil, lotion, and a little corn starch
I tried this and loved how soft it left my hands. I added corn starch because at first it left my hands feeling very oily. The corn starch fixed that, but only a teaspoon.
7. Carpet Powder
Baking soda and essential oil drops. Easy peasy and I loved it
8. Body Scrub
I did not really like this as a body wash. However, I did like it as an in shower mositurizer or to use while shaving.
I loved loved loved
10. Bath Bombs
Again Loved loved loved
After all of these I still have two thirds of everything left, except olive oil and coconut milk:)
I really had fun trying these recipes and will be trying more in the future. As always, I will let you know how it goes.
