Health, Food, Nutrition, Natural Body Care:
We share lots of recipes and tutorials for making your own body care products on the Herbs & Oils World blog – but I know that some of them are too difficult to make or require too many hard to find ingredients…
One of my greatest joys is showing people how easy it is to make natural body care products at home.
I think many are under the impression that is is complicated or time consuming to create personal care products; but it’s not! (Well, it could be, I suppose. But we won’t try those recipes).
Below are 10 easy (and natural) body care products anyone can make. Most of these can be made in less time than it would take to prepare dinner for your family! There’s not much involved beyond measuring and pouring.
You can do it!
Most of my supplies are purchased from Mountain Rose Herbs. But amazon carries a lot of stuff, like beeswax, cocoa butter, and lip balm tubes.
