No Poo Spray

No Poo Spray

diy no poo spray

Most of us know about the famous brand, “Poo Pourri.” It’s a No Poo Spray which makes going number two, well, much less stinky. Have you ever found yourself at a restroom in someone else’s house or in a public restroom, wishing you could erase any evidence of your existence? Sometimes, an aerosol spray is available for this purpose. Aerosols are not good for your health and they are certainly not good for the environment. That is quite a hefty price to pay for something which simply masks a smell, and does not get rid of it.

No Poo Spray is cheap and easy to make at home. Instead of masking smells, it forms a protective oily layer on the top of the toilet water, trapping odors beneath the surface until you flush. Not only does it mask these odors, it smells very pleasant as well! It is not harmful to your health to use no poo spray. It also is not bad for the environment. It’s an easy recipe, so let’s get right to it.

What You Need

How to Make It

  1. Using a pipette, put your essential oils into your glass spray bottle.
  2. Fill up the rest of the way with water, and replace the top.
  3. Shake before each use.
  4. Before using the restroom, spray 3-4 sprays into the toilet bowl. There should be a clear oily film on top of the water.
  5. Go ahead and do your business, of course flushing when done.
  6. Voila! No poo smells!

This version of No Poo Spray costs much less to make than the famous “Poo Pourri” brand. You can keep one in your pocket or in your purse when you leave the house.

Vegan Avocado Spread

Vegan Avocado Spread

vegan avocado spread

Butter and margarine both contain a lot of fat, and not the good kind. There is an endless debate on which product is “better for you,” and it doesn’t look like that debate will end any time soon. While Butter is a more natural alternative, many brands of margarine claim to be natural as well. They are usually vegetable oil based, however margarine is known to contain traces of dairy. It is often confused for a vegan alternative, but this is simply not true.

Avocados are full of healthy fats, and are the only fruit that contains a large amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. They contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals! That’s a whole lot of healthy packed into one fruit.

Coconut oil increases your healthy (HDL) cholesterol, and promotes heart health. Eating more coconut oil can help you lower your risk of heart disease. That’s a pretty big deal, in a country where heart disease is the number one cause of death.

If you don’t want to use butter on your toast, there is a healthy alternative. This vegan avocado spread is delicious, vegan, and super healthy.

What You Need

To make this spread, simply put all of your ingredients into your food processor. Turn it on for 20-30 seconds, and then your spread will be complete! Store this in either a Tupperware container or a glass jar such as a mason jar. Keep it in the fridge for up to a week. This Vegan Avocado Spread is perfect to put on toast or tacos, and you can even use it as a dip. Eat some every day if you want, it will add healthy fats and vitamins to your daily routine! It’s our goal to help you live a more natural and healthy lifestyle. What changes are you making in your life and at home to achieve your health goals?

DIY Natural Deodorant

DIY Natural Deodorant

DIY Natural Deodorant

DIY Natural Deodorant is not antiperspirant – it will help with moisture a bit, but the main goal is to eliminate odors. Antiperspirants block your pores, preventing sweat. Blocking pores is never a good idea, it can cause all kinds of irritation. When you do not smell nice, it can be unpleasant. Essential oils like Lavender are antimicrobial and antibacterial, so they in a sense kill the odor at the source. Bacteria causes odor when you sweat, so let’s help your body get rid of those pesky organisms!

Store bought deodorant can contain nasty ingredients like aluminum, parabens, and even triclosan. Hormone disrupters should never be consumed internally, nor should they be put on the skin where they are absorbed into the bloodstream. Yuck! Let’s try a DIY natural deodorant – it takes some time to get used to, but it is very much worth it. Your skin may detox for a couple of weeks when you make the switch. This is because your body is used to the chemicals, and needs to balance out its own PH levels as well.

What you need

How to Make it

  1. Using the double boiler method on low-medium heat, melt the beeswax pellets first.
  2. Once the beeswax is melted, add in your coconut oil and shea butter.
  3. After all ingredients are liquified, remove from the heat.
  4. Let it sit in room temperature for 20 minutes before adding in your essential oils. Mix well.
  5. Immediately add in your baking soda and arrowroot powder.
  6. Mix well into a paste type consistency, and then transfer immediately to your deodorant container.
  7. Without putting the lid on, let it harden overnight in room temperature, or for several hours in the fridge.
  8. Replace the lid, and store in a cool, dry place.

Now you have an all natural way to say no to stinky under arms! It’s just one more way to kick the chemicals out of your home, and keep them away from your body.

Cranberry Orange Sugar Scrub

Cranberry Orange Sugar Scrub

cranberry orange sugar scrub

Cranberries and orange – it is a delectable scent to bring in the New Year! Improve your skin’s texture and appearance by using a scrub a few times per week. It will gently wipe away dead skin cells, while using oils to nourish and replenish skin’s texture and moisture. This sugar scrub recipe will make you want to smell it again and again!

When you apply natural products to your skin, it is best to have a clean slate to help natural ingredients absorb properly. If you do not exfoliate, some of the moisture does not sink in or absorb. Layers of dead skin make it difficult for anything to move past it. In essence, it blocks your pores. This can cause acne or flakes, and even further irritate skin conditions like eczema.

What You Need

How to Make it

  1. Using a food processor, puree the cranberries.
  2. Put the cranberries, sugar, oils, and zest into a mixing bowl.
  3. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix for five minutes.
  4. Scoop out the mixture and put into a sealed jar. Mason jars work well and are cute, too!
  5. To use, take a small scoop and use scrub to gently exfoliate skin when in the bath. Wash away.

This cranberry orange sugar scrub will gently wash away your dead skin, revealing a healthy layer of moisturized and replenished skin. It is perfect for areas of concern or extra dryness, like legs, arms, elbows, and knees. Sugar scrubs contain natural oils, so make sure to be extra careful when entering and exiting the bath or shower at all times. It can be slippery. What is your favorite all natural body scrub recipe?

Sweet Almond Oil Benefits

Sweet Almond Oil Benefits

sweet almond oil benefits

Sweet Almond Oil has many benefits, and is very versatile. Almond oil has been used for a very long time for its hair and skin benefits, while science has only recently caught up as to why it offers so many wonderful properties. It is loaded with vitamins like A and E, fatty acids, and other nutrients. You can use it alone, in a recipe, or even just add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for scent personalization. Here are some sweet almond oil benefits worth mentioning:

Moisturized and soft skin

Almond oil absorbs well into skin, and contains vitamin E, which skin craves. Regular application onto skin will moisturize and protect skin from outside contaminants.

Clean and Clear Skin

Since almond oil is so easily absorbed, it is great for getting inside of pores and loosening up dirt and other debris. Using it in a facial scrub or cleanser will remove dirt and cleanse with deep penetration.

Eczema and Psoriasis

Sweet almond oil is very mild, while ultra hydrating. It can condition and moisturize skin while soothing it. The best part: it won’t irritate any skin conditions!

Healthy Hair

Because of the vitamins and nutrients almond oil contains, sweet almond oil will make hair healthier and stronger. Magnesium and zinc deficiencies can both be linked to thinning hair, and sweet almond oil contains both. You can expect less breakage when using sweet almond oil in your hair alone or in a DIY shampoo.

Strong & Healthy Nails

Similar vitamin deficiencies that can be found in thinning hair are also found in brittle, unhealthy nails. Rubbing some almond oil onto your cuticles daily will help your nails to stay strong and prevent white spots from deficiencies.

Sweet almond oil benefits are many, while the drawbacks are few if any. Incorporate this ingredient into your beauty and skin care regiment. The improvements and benefits are spectacular!
