This recipe calls for liquid castile soap, vegetable glycerin, and optional essential oils for scent. The castile soap is what does the grunt work, breaking down oils and what not. The vegetable glycerin keeps your hair looking healthy, shiny, and prevents it from totally drying out — it also nourishes your scalp as well. Castile soap on its own tends to leave hair feeling a little dry and tangled, which is where the coconut milk comes in, softening and nourishing your hair and scalp even further. It also adds a nice, rich, sulfate-free lather… and even though lather doesn’t do anything on its own, it’s still nice to have.
1- 1/2 cup of liquid castile soap -5-8 teaspoons of coconut milk.
2- 3 teaspoons of vegetable glycerin.
3- 1/2 cup of water -10 drops of essential oil.
Stir together all the indigents and store for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
Coconut oil has wonderful antimicrobial properties that make it perfect for toothpaste, as it holds back odor causing bacteria, as well as cavities. On top of that, some people find it helps whiten their teeth naturally. Baking soda also helps with bacteria and whitening, plus its slightly abrasive texture can scrub away things caught between teeth. Be sure not to go overboard with it though — a little goes a long way. The essential oils add flavor/ scent (I stick to peppermint/cinnamon). Only a few drops are needed, with coconut oil being the diluting carrier oil.
1- 1 cup of coconut oil.
2- 1-2 tablespoons of baking soda.
3- 2 drops of peppermint or cinnamon essential oil.
1- Soften coconut oil and stir in baking soda and essential oil. Store in a mason jar indefinitely..
2- To use you can place the jar in warm water or the microwave to soften it, or you can use a little measuring spoon to scoop some onto your damp toothbrush. Brush as usual, using a pea sized amount for little ones. .
First and foremost this contains vinegar (of course!) to act as the body of the cleaner, distilled water, and witch hazel. The witch hazel makes a good cleaning substitute for rubbing alcohol, disinfecting but gentle. Finally there’s lemon essential oil to add grease cutting power, and tea tree oil for an extra antibacterial kick.
1- 1 cup of white distilled vinegar.
2- 1 cup of fresh filtered or distilled water.
3- 15-20 drops of lemon essential oil.
4- 1/2 cup of witch hazel.
5- 5-10 drops of eucalyptus or tea tree essential oil.
6- A spray bottle.
Add your essential oil to your spray bottle and then pour in vinegar, water, and witch hazel. Shake well before each use. If you are cleaning a particularly stubborn spot, let it sit for 5-10 minutes first. It is safe to leave this out with water in it for 3 weeks. It could probably go longer because of the vinegar, but I don’t want to risk the nasties growing. If you make a large batch in advance, don’t add the water until you pour it into your spray bottle so you can use it all up in time.
I love glass in all its forms, especially the big windows that let sunlight stream into our homes. I am a huge fan of natural light, and can’t have enough windows in a room, but they are sadly fragile, and extremely prone to smudging and clouding. I have four dogs. Although all small, mushy-faced dogs that like nothing better than to stare out the windows — breathe on them, press their little wet noses up against them, and lick them. This results in some serious crusting and smudging. But the last thing I want to do is reach for store bought cleaner. I despise using it, and I know my pups are going to be right back at smooshing their faces up against the glass when I am done cleaning, and I don’t want that on their precious mugs. So I needed an alternative — something that would get the window clean, but not harm my four-legged children — and discovered that this natural glass cleaner does a better job than any I’ve used before.
This recipe contains a rather random ingredient — cornstarch. Made from the ground heart of the corn kernel, there’s something about it that reduces any streaking on your windows after you clean them. When you first spray this cleaner on and wipe with your cloth, it will look streaky/cloudy, and you will curse my name for tricking you into putting corn starch on your windows. Just wait — it does get better. After you’ve sprayed and cleaned with your first cloth, go over with a second clean cloth to wipe away any little smears you see. Voila! You will be left with the most gloriously clean windows you’ve ever had, and totally satisfied that you made it all yourself.
