Re: Toiletry Recipes

I have just posted a recipe on how to make lip balms, on my blog, so here is the very short version. Lip Balms are really easy to make and make great presents too, (thinking December) and actually work out far more cheaply, and you can also create to your own personal preference. Basic Ingredients: ...

Re: Shampoo that won't send my scalp into a flat spin

Just wanted to mention a pure natural mineral called Rhassoul Clay, it is used for replacing shampoo's and soaps, as it is fantastic for cleansing hair as well as your whole body.

Re: Making soap/toiletries

A good and natural fabric condtioner is this:

mix equal amounts of water with vinegar, and bicarb of soda, (it will fizz when you add the vinegar and soda) then simply pour into a bottle.

To use add roughly a quarter of a cupful to your wash.

Re: 101 chemical free ideas for the home

Citric Acid Descale your kettles, coffee machines, baby bottle warmers, sterilisers, I use 10g of citric (1 tablespoon more or less) to 200ml of water and leave for around 20mins. I prefer it to vinegar, as vinegar takes a while to work, but citric is fast reacting! Clean off water marks on shower d...

Re: Making soap/toiletries

I haven't tried an actual shampoo soap, which one do your make? I have used my honey and beeswax soap for my hair as well as everywhere else. For pressies, you can wrap things in really nice fabrics, or re cycle packaging, my husband gets fed up with opening cupboards and drawers and finding boxes s...
