Treat yourself right with these easy DIY bath and body recipes!
Shopping for bath and body products can be tricky. So many commercial beauty products contain questionable ingredients, and it can be tough to stay on top of what is and isn't safe, can't it? Instead of rolling the dice with bath and body products from the big box store, you can make your own with some of these DIY recipes!
1. DIY Sugar Scrub
With some kitchen ingredients and your favorite essential oil blend, you can whip up a homemade sugar scrub in minutes. The scrub pictured above there is one that I made using the Meditation Oil from Aura Cacia. It's my husband's favorite.

2. Make Your Own Perfume or Cologne
You can use rubbing alcohol, like the recipe calls for, or substitute grain alcohol if you're not partial to rubbing alcohol. Either way, it's a simple recipe that's much cheaper and less toxic than store-bought colognes.
3. Homemade Deodorant
Check out my new favorite recipe for making deodorant with just a few ingredients! You can make it stick-style or lotion-style. The best part? No aluminum, triclosan, or other harmful ingredients here!
4. DIY Bath Bombs
Nothing says decadent like a hot bath and a soothing bath bomb. The trouble is that those fizzy wonders usually include mystery ingredients to make them smell nice. Boo! Make your own bath bomb to skip the chemical fragrances.
5. Sunburn Salve
Did you overdo it at the beach or by the pool? The faster you treat your sunburn, the lower your changes that the burn will do long-term damage to your skin and to your health. Soothe your sunburned skin naturally with a homemade salve.
