2014 Best Homemade Beauty Recipes
10) Homemade Lotions and Body Balms
Homemade lotions and Body balms are an easy way to ease into homemade products. It’s something my family uses daily, especially during the winter. This article provides some great recipes. You can also purchase this in My Shop.
9) Homemade Shampoo, Conditioners, and Detanglers (No lye Soap)
It’s great to have alternatives to store bought, chemically laden shampoos, conditioners, and detanglers. You do not have to make lye soap to make these recipes. They are simply cleansing and nourishing to your hair.
8) Anti Aging with 11 Essential Oils
Once you know how to make your own lotion, it’s easy to take the next step and add essential oils that are specifically chosen to help tighten, heal, and nourish your skin. In case you don’t have all the essential oils, you can also find this in My Shop.
7) Homemade Natural Mascara
It was a lot of trial and error in finding something that works. Though I like all the recipes mentioned, I love the egg yolk recipe the best (and so do a lot of others it seems).
6) DIY Eye Shadow and Blush
It’s amazing how simple it is to make your own eye shadow and blush. This is SUPER frugal! Plus, you can always add some mica for sparkle.
5) Homemade Lip Stick and Lip Balm
This is another family favorite. I use the tinted lip balm that adds just a bit of rosiness to my lips, while the rest of my family uses the cocoa lip balm that has a cocoa and mint scent. Perfect for if your lips get dry in the winter. Also sold in My Shop.
4) Essential Oils for Scars
A lot of us have a scar or two that we’d like to heal. Essential oils are a great natural way to speed the process.
3) Homemade Foundation – Liquid and Powder
This has been another experiment in the making. I LOVE the powder! I like a very light cover occasionally in order to even my skin tone. This recipe really works. I’m still not 100% with the liquid, but I’m in the process of trying new ideas right now and will report my new findings.
2) Anti Aging Serums with Essential Oils
Anti-Aging Serum is great to put on a freshly washed face before adding any lotions. This article provides a complex recipe requiring a number of different essential oils. If you don’t have all of these oils, you can find the serum in My Shop. There is also a more simple recipe, only requiring the top boosting essential oils.
1) 7 Homemade Shampoo Bar Recipes
If you make your own body soap, then making your own shampoo bars will be no problem! Shampoo bars are a natural way to wash your hair without any of the harsh chemicals. Know what you are putting on your body (also found in My Shop).
