Seven DIY hygiene products you can make at home!

Guest Post by Morgan from Rogue Preparedness

I remember the first time I made lip balm. It was the first DIY product I had ever attempted and once completed, I couldn’t believe how easy it was! I absolutely loved it. I don’t buy lip balm anymore, I just make it.

Since then, I’ve been stepping out into making my own hygiene products to save money and be more self-reliant. Also, knowing exactly what’s in my products is really important to me.

Why is there so much junk in shampoos and deodorants?

I’m on a mission to live completely without store bought hygiene products.

Here are 7 homemade hygiene products that anyone can make!

1. Sugar scrub - this is the easiest homemade hygiene product that I’ve ever done and I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner! You mix equal parts sugar & coconut oil into any container and viola. Usually about 4 tbsps of each. You can make a bigger or smaller batch, depending on the size of your container. You have a sugar scrub! Use it on your face, neck, wherever! I leave the oil on my face, I don’t wash it off. It makes my skin feel so smooth!

2. Deodorant - This is again a very easy homemade recipe that I can’t believe I wasn’t doing sooner. All it takes is 6 tbsp coconut oil, 4 tbsp baking soda and 4 tbsp cornstarch. Mix it all together and place it in a container. Refrigerate for a couple hours to let it set. Apply to underarms with a tongue depressor or popsicle stick.
