This shower jelly soap is so much fun to make and to use! My kids love using it. I used essential oils to naturally scent it, but you can use fragrance oils if you'd like. Jelly soap can be used as a body bar of soap or for your hands. My kids like to use it in the shower.
I needed a storage box for my essential oils, but I didn't wait to pay a lot. I found a cute blank wood wine box that I thought would fit my bottles really well, so I decided to upcycle it for my oils.
Cold and flu season is coming, so I need to start disinfecting my home again. I use natural cleaners to clean my home because my son has asthma. It saves a lot of money and helps us all breathe a little easier. This disinfecting spray recipe is easy to make and works great to naturally kill germs.
Scent your home naturally with this DIY gel air freshener made with essential oils. These are easy to make in about 15 minutes. You can make two or four at a time, and you can use different oils like I did.
I use this all purpose cleaner on most surfaces in my home. It has vinegar in it, so I don't use it on my stainless steel fridge. I use it on counters, walls, and cabinets though. It uses natural essential oils to kill germs and cut through grease.
I have eczema on my hand, and most bulk soaps in stores make it worse. I have to take my own soap with me when I go to the store. Rather than dealing with a liquid that can spill or a bar soap that can get messy, I make single use soaps. Since it's fall, I decided to use silk fall leaves to make soaps.
I like burning wax melts in my home, but I wanted to use natural products. I made these with soy wax and essential oils. Soy wax burns cleaner and without the chemicals from paraffin wax.
I may be a little obsessed with pumpkin spice lattes. Last year, I made a basic bar of soap, but this year I wanted to do something extra. I came up with a way whip soap to make this look like a little cup of coffee with whipped cream on top.
Pumpkin spice is the scent for fall. I used an essential oil blend called Essence of Pumpkin Pie to recreate my favorite fall scent to make this easy hand soap recipe. Making your own liquid soap from scratch is really easy, and it saves a lot of money. We use a lot of hand soap, and it really adds up in my monthly budget. Now I just stock up on liquid castile soap.
