DIY Personal Care and My Test Subject

Not sure if you know this about me but I am really into DIY Personal Care, Healthy Recipes and trying new things.  But let me preface this with the fact I have so much going on in my life and I don’t have good patience.  Sometimes things don’t turn out so great.  (Just letting you know for future installments)

So a few weeks ago my goal was to start using even more DIY (Homemade) items for my personal care.  I already used homemade eye makeup remover, moisturizer, sun enhancer & sun screen

So this was the week to add:

Facial Cleanser, Shampoo/Conditioner, Body Lotion & Toothpaste

All my stuff turned out ok and looked good.  But did it work???

I am still in the testing stages but I did use J as a test subject.  She wanted whiter teeth so I said use my new toothpaste with baking soda, it will whiten your teeth.  I told her it tasted a little salty but she informed me she liked salt.

She barely had it in her mouth before she spit it out and said “No way!!!!”  But dear I thought you liked salt?  Oh well, no white teeth for you I guess.

Next was the stuff to clear up her acne.  Well I already had this made from before but just learned it could be used on acne.  Thieves Oil!!!   I had been putting some on my acne prone areas for a week or so and I could see a huge difference where things were drying up. So I gave it to her to try.

She came screaming in my room “It burns!!!!!!”  I just laughed and said “suck it up butter cup.  You want clear skin you gotta suffer”.  Well it has been a week and she is still using it – I guess it works and the pain must not be so bad.

One of these days I will have her totally hooked on all this natural stuff but baby steps is good.

(PS facial cleanser and toothpaste are hits with me.  The other things I am still working out).
