Beauty products can be a source of toxic chemicals in your home you may not have thought about. Minimize the toxins with DIY, natural formulas to replace some of the products you’re using. Here are a few you can make with items you may already have:


Apple Cider Vinegar (to clarify your hair)

Use ¼ cup of organic apple cider vinegar with 1 cup of water and follow with conditioner. It will remove any build up you may have from hair products like gel or hairspray.


Body Scrub

For a quick body scrub, mix olive oil and kosher salt (in a 2:1 oil-to-salt ratio). It will exfoliate your skin, leaving you soft and glowing.


Honey Face Mask

Just honey! Use organic, if you can. Measure about 1 Tbsp. and smooth it over your face, leaving it on for 10 minutes. Honey is naturally antimicrobial and will cleanse and soften your face.


Deep-Conditioning Hair Treatment

Massage melted coconut oil into your hair and scalp, leaving the oil on for 1 to 2 hours. When you’re ready, wash out the coconut oil with shampoo and skip the conditioner.
