The beauty of DIY projects is that you get to use what you think is healthiest for you. And most importantly, you get to choose the quality of your ingredients. 

Always ensure that you test a little bit on your skin or hair before diving deep into your creations – as you should do with all toiletries. 

DIY Natural Deodorant (For Sensitive Skin)

You will need the following.

  • 5 drops of organic tea tree oil 
  • 3 organic green tea bags 
  • 2 drops of geranium oil
  • 1 drop of eucalyptus oil

Procedure

Simply steep the green tea bags in 1 cup of water for around 10 minutes and then leave the bag in the cup until it is lukewarm. Cover this in order to keep in the steam. 

Next, blend all the ingredients together and store in the fridge. You can use this on your skin and it can last at least 1 month. 

Dry Shampoo

Wow, how great would it be to make your own shampoo? This is a must-have product in almost all homes. Here is our recipe.

You will need the following.

  • 1 Tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups of water
  • Cornstarch – this is optional for thickening

Procedure

Mix the baking soda with the water. You can vary the amount of water as per how thick you want the shampoo to be. If you want it even thicker, then add some cornstarch to the desired thickness. 

You can also include any essential oils you want to get a variety of delicious smells.

Hair Rinse

You will need the following.

  • 1 Organic Lemon
  • 1 Organic Cucumber

The process of making this is very easy. Simply peel the cucumber and lemon, and put them in a blender. Mix this to the desired consistency. It is simply great for hair and it’s that easy. 

Deep Conditioner

You will need the following.

  • ½ of a mashed ripe avocado
  • ½ tsp olive oil.
  • 3 drops of lavender or rosemary essential oils.

Mix all of the ingredients together and use them straight away. Leave the mixture in the hair for around 10 minutes.

Oil Hair-Conditioning Treatment

You will need the following.

  • 2-4 tablespoons of jojoba, olive, or coconut oil
  • Essential oils of choice (optional)

Procedure

Warm the base oil and mix in any other essential oils in. I used a glass jar in a pot of hot water to heat mine.

Dampen hair. For long or thick hair, use 1-2 teaspoons of the oil mixture, and for fine or short hair, use 1/4 teaspoon of the mixture – when it comes down to it though, just use as much as you feel is right.

The heat will facilitate the conditioning processes so if you can, sit in the sun. Ideally, leave on for 1-2 hours and then shampoo out and rinse.

Shaving Cream

You will need the following.

  • Shea Butter – 4 tbsp.
  • Coconut Oil – use sustainable coconut oil – 3 tbsp.
  • Sweet almond oil – 2 tbsp.
  • Pure essential oil – lavender is the best – around 10 – 12 drops.

Procedure

Set up a glass bowl over a pot of simmering hot water. Turn down to lowest heat, add Shea butter and coconut oil and let them melt. Once melted remove from heat. Add almond oil and essential oils and stir.

Place in the fridge to solidify. When hard, mix with a handheld mixer until the texture of frosting. Leave to settle for ten minutes. Store in an airtight container.
