Creating Your Own Wellness Products at Home

Is your bank account balance not where you would like it to be these days? You are not alone. We all seem to be trying to save money and doing our best to cut down on non-essential purchases. Even if you aren’t directly trying to boost your finances, you may find you are still not able to purchase some of your favorite products. Some items have temporarily disappeared from store shelves due to high demand or disruptions in the manufacturing process.

Now is the perfect time to begin experimenting with creating beauty products from home. Not only will you save money, but you can be sure of every ingredient that has gone into your concoction. For those of us with extra sensitive skin, we can tailor-make our products that won’t leave our skin feeling irritated and inflamed.

Homemade Face Scrubs

If you are like most people, you have noticed that wearing a face mask can be uncomfortable. While the necessity of these masks outweighs any discomfort, you can still address the irritation that masks can cause by using a face scrub created within the comforts of your home.

Try one of these face scrub recipes to help you care for your skin while not breaking your budget. Most of these ingredients can be readily found in your kitchen, with no trip to the grocery store required! You can use these scrubs to help clear those pores after wearing face masks for several hours a day.

Homemade Lotions

It can be difficult to find a lotion that is suitable for your exact skin time. Some lotions can leave your skin feeling greasy, while others don’t seem to provide enough moisture. Try out this homemade lotion recipe that uses basic ingredients like aloe vera gel and beeswax to create a product that you can easily customize for your skin type.

With all of us washing our hands so much more than usual, the perfect lotion can go along to make us feel comfortable and reduce the number of cuts and cracks on our hands.

Homemade Shampoos

Salon style shampoos can be notoriously expensive. Why not use your downtime to experiment with different types of shampoo to find one that leaves your hair feeling like you just left the beauty parlor (but not your whole paycheck)?

This list offers ten different recipes that utilize ingredients like castile soap, apple cider vinegar, and even apple juice. Have fun with your friends by inviting them to a Zoom chat where you each can try to make a different shampoo recipe. Compare recipes and outcomes. You can even send the products in the mail to one another.

You can have just as much fun making your own wellness products as decorating the containers you store them in. Use paint, markers, or even ribbon to turn the containers into works of art. You may find you have such a knack that you come out of the pandemic with your own line of wellness products!
