I’ve said before that one of the things I love is that green, frugal and intentional living so often intersect, so when I make a small change to live more frugally, it’s often “green” as well. Similarly, when I make a green change, it’s often a simpler, more intentional way to live as well.
Homemade toiletries are a perfect example of this principle. when you simplify your beauty routine and choose homemade toiletries over dozens of store-bought varieties, you’re often simplifying and living more intentionally, saving money AND avoiding questionable chemicals, plastic waste, etc.
Do I think everybody should give up all of their favorite products and make everything from scratch? No, I really don’t. But it is worth giving some of these a try and sticking with the ones that work for your family!
Here are a few homemade toiletries you might consider:
1. Whipped Body Butter
2. Sensitive Skin Body Wash
3. Homemade Grass Soap
4. No ‘Poo Hair Care
5. DIY Body Scrubs
6. Rejuvenating Pumpkin Mask
7. Homemade Toothpaste
8. DIY Pore Strips
9. Coconut Oil Deodorant
