My ‘Green’ Choices!

April 27, 2010


My Greener choices.

I’ve decided to make some healthier choices, including how I wash my clothes, my body, and I’ve been thinking of more besides those.

Yesterday I cleaned my clothes without soap! Imagine that! LOL They still smelled really good, just like clean, fresh clothes to me.

Then I started thinking about my hair care, my body washes…and did some researching!

Baking Soda = for shampoo
Vinegar = for conditioner
Sugar = for facial scrub
Salt = for body scrub

I mixed the ingredients together, and will continue to play around with the ratios that work for me.

I felt like a chemist, doing this!

The finished products!!!
The first bottle on the left, is the Vinegar spray
Blue bottle = Baking Soda Shampoo
Pink bottle = Sugar Facial
Purple bottle = Salt Scrub

I bought travel bottle to have something to mix my concoctions in. At least until I can get my ratios right, then I’ll graduate up to some larger bottles!

I am thinking about trying my hand at some lotions, or lip balms next!

What’s your best home remedies?!

    You can make lip balm from beeswax and add oils like mint,cinnamon,or alomnd. If you can find a place that sells local honey in your area you can get the wax there.
