Summertime Homemade Body Care Roundup

summer-bodycare-recipes

Living a healthy lifestyle goes beyond real food – it’s important to use non-toxic products in our homes as well. What we put on our skin and clean our homes with has as much effect on our health as the food we put in our body. This summer, try making some of your own non-toxic body care products like bug sprays, lip balms, and skin healing remedies.

I’ve been buying non-toxic home and body care products for years but recently have started making my own from simple ingredients and essential oils. When you use high quality essential oils in these products you get many therapeutic benefits and can tailor their non-toxic scent to your likes. It’s also cost-effective and a great family project to do together with your kids.

Enjoy this roundup of summer must haves – like bug spray and sunblocks – from my fellow “Oily Angels” bloggers (and check out our new website!).
