I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely in need of some inspiration these days. The permacloud in the sky is getting a little old, and definitely not doing anything to help my mood.
We spent about 30 minutes outside the other morning and it was refreshing to just get outside and breathe fresh air, but I am definitely missing the sun! The picture above is the only little glimpse we got that morning, and almost as soon as it came, it was gone again. So I went looking for some inspiration elsewhere and wanted to pass some along to you!
We’re wrapping up the month here at Live Renewed talking about personal care products. I think we’ve covered them from just about every angle possible, don’t you? Well one thing that I didn’t offer much of was recipes and tutorials for making your own products, because I haven’t done much of it myself. Here are some great posts I found about making your own homemade personal care products.
- Homemade Hard Lotion Bar Tutorial from Kinda Crunchy Kate
- Homemade Toothpaste Recipe from LuSa Organics
- Homemade Hand Cream from Heartfelt Homemaking
- Homemade Lip Balm from Bee’s Nest
I can’t wait to start trying to make more of my own products at home! Fortunately, I have many of the ingredients already on hand, so I can get started right away. If you need a good source for ingredients, or even some cute containers, Mountain Rose Herbs has great selection and prices!
Also, I was over at Green…Your Way yesterday talking one more time about choosing safe personal care products and how to be a conscious consumer with The Problem with “Natural” Products – Being A Conscious Consumer. Head over to Green…Your Way to read more!
Do you have any links to share for great homemade and natural beauty products?
