Homemade Hygiene Items

Homemade hygiene items


With $18 billion spent each year on deodorant, it’s time to think about making a change. Our Laguna Place Blog has a few recipes that you can follow to make your own deodorant, as well as other hygiene items that you might use on a day-to-day basis. It’s time to go into DIY-mode in Kissimmee, Florida, and don’t worry, you probably have a lot of the ingredients for these already in your apartment.


Making your own hygiene items has a lot of benefits. First, you know exactly what is going into the product. Take, for example, this guide that we found for making toothpaste. Dr. Burhenne discusses why you would want to make your own toothpaste, the best ingredients to use, and what to leave out. He even mentions dry brushing as well as a simple baking soda toothpaste.


A second benefit to making your own hygiene items is that you can tailor them to your body’s needs. This recipe for deodorant is specifically for sensitive skin.


In addition to those, we found incredible recipes for Honey Face Wash, hand sanitizer, and lotion, all of which offer budget-friendly alternatives to an otherwise pricey selection of products. Sure, hand sanitizer might not cost much, but finding a good body lotion/cream can become pretty pricey.


If you find yourself with some dry lips, make 2-Ingredient Lip Balm, where all you need is honey and coconut oil. You can also try a recipe for Coconut Milk Shampoo, which smells great! Both can be found with a quick Google search online. Don’t worry, there are so many recipes out there that are simple to follow (You can even find simple recipes for mouthwash, which is often made with water and mint. Do a quick search online and share your favorites with us!).


We invite you to live a healthy lifestyle without spending all of your money. Let us know if you’ve made any of your own hygiene items and which ones are your favorites by leaving a comment below. Thanks for reading.
