Save Money

Homemade Toiletries Recipes Round-up

We previously had a round-up of homemade cleaners to help you save money while saving the environment and keeping your families from using toxic ingredients. This month, we have put together another great round-up, but this time, it is full of recipes for homemade toiletries.

That’s right! You can make all kinds of toiletries at home, and they really do work. Homemade anything (meals, cleaners, toiletries, clothing, etc) can be great money-savers for families who are preferring a frugal lifestyle. In this post, you will see several recipes that will cover four main topics: hair, face, mouth, and body.

You will have the opportunity to visit blogs that have shared posts about how to make your own lotions, shampoos, bug sprays, and even deodorant! They use simple, everyday ingredients like lemons, eggs, baking soda, coconut oil, and others. It is fascinating how many toiletries we can make with ingredients we already have in our homes.

Come and take a look! Enjoy!
