Household DIY

1 cup borax, 1 cup washing soda (or baking soda will work, as well), 1/2 cup citric acid, and 1/2 cup of kosher salt as a scrubbing agent. Use vinegar as your rinsing agent.

50% water 50% vinegar 2-3 drops of dish soap

The secret is in the pump, not the soap, so never throw out an empty foam soap dispenser. Refill it with 1 teaspoon of liquid soap or dish washing liquid and fill the rest with water.

4 cups warm water, 1-2 tablespoons Coconut Oil. (1-2 squirts of baby wash or your your favorite face wash if you want, but it’s not necessary)

Homemade Lavender Bath Salts:
1 cup Epsom salt
1/2 cup Sea salt
2 tablespoons dried lavender buds
10 to 15 drops of lavender essential oil
a few drops of lavender soap colorant/a small pinch if using powdered ones (optional)

In a glass mixing bowl, gently stir all ingredients to combine.  Transfer mixture to a glass, airtight container and let it rest for a couple of days. This will give the herbs and essential oil time to infuse the salts with their aroma. 

To use as bath salt: Spoon about 4 to 6 tablespoons of Lavender Bath Salt under warm running bath water. Soak for 20 minutes and let the rich minerals absorb through the skin. 

To use as an exfoliator: Mix 2 tablespoons of Lavender Bath Salt with a handful of your favorite body wash. Gently massage mixture onto skin to slough away dry patches, reveling a healthier looking complexion.
