DIY Personal Care {Sharing My Recipes}

Recently I wrote a blog about some of the DIY Personal Care products I use.  Someone asked for the recipes so I am sharing some of them here.  There are soooo many different recipes for these items and you may have to do a little research or testing to get the right thing which works for you.  Enjoy!


  • I use the No Poo Method
  • Basically  I add a teaspoon of baking soda to hot water and wash my hair with it.
  • I do  this about 2-3 times a week because my hair looks great for about 3 days      with this method.
  • Sometimes  I do a rinse with Apple Cider Vinegar – it eliminates the flyaway but since the weather has warmed up and  there is no longer static I have eliminated this process
DIY Toothpaste

DIY Toothpaste


  • 2 parts Baking Soda
  • 1 part coconut oil
  • Peppermint oil – don’t swallow
    • Mix  this all together and use a dollop on your toothbrush.  Slightly whitens your teeth each day

Cleanser – OCM (Oil Cleanse Method)

  • 1 part  Castor oil
  • 3  parts EVOO
    • I  have dry skin so I use only one part Castor oil – you may have to adjust       depending on your skin type
    • I  put some on my finger tips and rub all over my face
    • I  then wash is off with a very hot wash cloth

Eye Makeup Remover

  • 1/3 C  distilled water
  • ¾   Teaspoon baby shampoo
  • ¼  teaspoon baby oil
    • I  use an old eye makeup remover bottle which is 2.3 oz
    • I  have read bad things about baby oil on skin but I continue to use.  You could probably use olive oil
    • Mix  it up and then put some on a cotton ball and wipe away the eye makeup

Thieves Oil (this can be purchased from a Young Living Rep – But I found a recipe and made my own)

T = Tablespoon          t = teaspoon

  • 3T –   Clove oil
  • 3T –   Lemon Oil
  • 7.5t –  Cinnamon oil
  • 6t –    Rosemary oil
  • 6t –  Eucalyptus oil
    • Fills a little more than a 4 Oz bottle
    • The cost for this mix is about $35.00
    • It  lasts a really long time.


  • In  Antibacterial Foaming Soap
    • On  my acne and oily areas
    • On a  cotton ball to breathe in when I am congested
    • On my lips when I feel a cold sore coming on – then use 5-8 times a day and       it clears the cold sore up in a day or so
    • There  are tons of other uses
