    I like the idea of a peppermint face scrub, I need to try making things myself as they’re so easy. I found a good one to make your own bath bombs which I am going to try out next week x

  14. Helen @ Fuss Free Flavours

    I used to make soap from scratch which was huge fun, then fell out of the habit of doing it. Need to get creative again, its not really that much different from cooking is it?

  15. Paula Schuck

    Thanks so much for sharing these! I’ve really gotten into making my own scrubs and what not. I’m bookmarking this!

  17. aimee fauci

    I love using scrubs, mainly for my hands and feet. The smells of a good scub are so amazing.

  18. Jessica McDonnell

    This is exactly what I need. I’ve been quite poorly lately and my skin is totally dried out. I’ve noticed recently that my skin has been quite sensitive probably because of all my medication so I’m trying as much as I can to use natural products. I will definitely be trying some of these.

  19. Jeanine

    I want to try some DIY bath bombs! I think they’d be awesome and would save so much money! This is a great list!

    I love making my own body products. Especially scrubs. They smell amazing and cost pennies to make!

    I should have read about the Organic Foundation Sunscreen when I was in the Philippines. It’s summer there and this one is a must!

  22. Amanda Love

    I love making my own products and I’ve done a few body scrubs and butters. It’s not as hard as everyone thinks and the good thing is that you know EXACTLY what is in it.

    Great post!! I love this post. I use a lot of these (but never thought to use all of them at one time lol). I absolutely love using chamomile green tea bags in my bath water. And some calendula in there too, it is great for combating inflammation, soreness, soothing and achy muscles. Thanks.

  32. Heather White (@fitandbeauty_)

    Great round up and cute blog! Thanks for the post.
