DIY nail oil/ cuticle oil

Hello everybody!

Happy spring time! Recipes for the nail and cuticle oils are in my last blog. You can blend both oils in a spoon or a small jar and rub them straight in to your nails and cuticles or put them into a small glass jar or roller bottle. As a carrier oil you can use olive, jojoba or coconut oil. In a vlog I speak Finnish, but you can easily watch this muted, it is just a small demonstration 🙂

DIY natural hand soap

Hello!

Lovely spring is bringing it’s light and hopefully soon it’s warmth too. I made a video to show you guys how easy it is to make your own liquid hand soap. I wrote to my last blog the recipe for natural hand soap. I use on the video a natural aloevera soap that I dilute with distilled water. The hand soap went to a toilet that I don’t use very often. That’s why I wanted to use distilled water instead of regular tap water, even though in Finland the water is pretty good. I added doTerra’s Onguard essential oil blend to protect me and my toddler and lavender to take care of our skin. In the video you can also see my burmese cat Örri, who is part of all home project like burmese cats often are.

DIY liquid hand soap

I have used homemade hand soaps for years. Natural liquid hand soaps are quick and easy to make. I want to keep all the extra chemicals and additives away from my home. You get enough of them from outside of the home. Many 100% pure essential oils are naturally disinfecting and they bring a natural sent.  If you have a sensitive skin, lavender oil is a good choice. Lemon and peppermint are favourites for other people. If it’s the flu season, I use doTerra’s protective Onguard blend that has wild orange, clover, cinnamon and eucalyptus oil in it (or I use ready Onguard foaming hand soap).

Here is my recipe for self made liquid hand soap:

  • 1/3 of the bottle Castile soap (or other natural liquid soap/ doTerra’s cleaning concentrate)
  • 2/3 of the bottle distilled/filtered water
  • few drops of essential oils

You only need few drops for normal pump bottle.

DIY stain remover

If you want to reduce the amount of chemicals in your home or chemicals also give you a head ache like me, here is a recipe for DIY natural stain remover. (I made a blog post, where I talk more about natural cleaning earlier)

tahranpoisto

You will need:

  • Natural liquid soap (good ones are for example: Dr Bronner’s baby and doTerra’s Onguard cleaning concentrate)
  • Baking soda
  • hydrogen peroxide (in Finland you can get that from pharmacy)
  • airtight plastic or glass container, if you want to make more
  • lemon essential oil for smelly stains (or doTerra’s Purify oil blend)

Mix together 1/3 of your wanted amount liquid soap and 2/3 hydrogen peroxide. Add baking soda one table-spoon at a time until you have a paste. Add few drops of lemon essential oil.

Put a generous amount to the stain and use an old tooth-brush. Do both sides of the fabric. Leave it for an hour and then throw it to the washer. Make sure that the stain is gone before putting it to the drier (drier dries the stain really hard).

Natural cough syrup (vlog)

Hello!

I found a great natural cough syrup recipe that is more gentle to the stomach and to your whole system than the chemical version. I just read a study that said that chemical cough medicines don’t even work 😦 Honey has great health benefits for those who suffer from cough and flu, which I also go through in the vlog.

Natural cough medicine

Here is a DIY recipe for a natural cough medicine. Honey has some great health benefits and it has been proven to work better for coughs than chemical cough medicines. Honey has less sugar than some cough medicines and it is more gentile to the stomach. Honey has antibacterial properties and it has been proven to work against dozens of different bacteria. I like this, because my stomach does not like chemical cough medicines. Essential oils have also a lot of health benefits.

Mix well together with a table-spoon of honey:

  • 1 drop of doTerra’s lemon oil (if you use some other brand make sure that you can use it internally)
  • 1 drop of doTerra’s frankincense oil
  • 1 drop of doTerra’s peppermint oil
  • 1 drop of doTerra’s lavender oil

You can mix the honey with tea or hot water.
