All Homemade

Found this great new website called DIY Natural. Love it!!! I started making homemade concoctions right away from their site!

Their recipe for Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub & Lemon Sugar Scrub (from left my hands smelling and feeling so smooth and awesome!

And then I made this flexible-hold hairspray on the stove. I was using Pantene. I like this better. (I can't seem to link to it, but go to

And because it was on their site, and my sister has used this forever & loves it....

....shampooing my hair with only baking soda. I'm in week two of trials. Liking it so far.
(also found at

And while this one is not on their site yet, my sister highly recommended it as well, so I'm giving it a try too....

....Facial toner using apple cider vinegar. There were MANY rave reviews and testimonials online about using this! I followed THIS recipe mainly (except mine has raspberry pomegranate green tea and about a Tablespoon of Witch Hazel as well).
Yea for Homemade and saving money! I've really started into the essential oils now...

And I've been using Jojoba oil on myself, and for my baby's eczema, and it's cleared it completely up! What will I make next? I can hardly wait!

If you try something out too, let me know what you think of the results!

  2. Thank you for your recipe for the facial toner! Yours sounds better than any I've found. I bought the Braggs organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar today, as it was highly recommended. I may make your version very soon! Thanks! Do the mint leaves help mask the vinegar smell, you think?
