Healthy natural cosmetics
Make your simplest cosmetics for everyday personal hygiene
When you start eating only natural, raw, plant food, there is no longer be a problem with bad breath, with unpleasant sweat. When you throw out poisons from your diet, you will never stink again :D
Since 2008. when I switched to a healthy diet, I made sure our cosmetics is healthy too. Then I start to research, ask, read and find out that the ingredients from the cosmetic products we use, goes directly into the bloodstream.
That's why my shelves with cosmetic products are minimalistic. Only basic cosmetics for personal hygiene: toothpaste, shampoo and hair conditioner, cream face and body, bath and deodorant.
Here's how I shake it:
- 1/2 cup of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of honey or stevia
- 1-2 teaspoons of bicarbonate or zeolite, clay ...
- a few drops of essential oil of mint or eucalyptus, lemon ....
Mix all ingredients and you will get a toothpaste. This paste does not penetrate.
If you use baking soda, it will take several hours of mixing, while soda melt with coconut oil. Just pulling oil in mouth is a type of washing and whitening teeth and cleaning your mouth from bacteria.
Shampoo and conditioner
- 1dl apple vinger
- 2.5dl of water
Soda and water or zeolite and water is your shampoo. Mix and rub on wet hair. Leave on hair for 2-3 minutes. Rinse with water, and apply balsam of apple vinegar and water. Rinse again and that's it.
NOTE: The apple vinegar's aroma disappears as soon as the hair is completely dry ;)
Cream for face and body
- 2-3 tablespoons of english marigold flowers
- 10 gr bee wax
- 100ml extra virgin olive oil
- a few drops of essential oil you like
Warm oil on light fires and add flowers of english marigold. Leave 15 minutes to boil until the flowers release the medicinal ingredients. Strain and return on light fire, add bee wax. Mix until the wax melts. Add a few drops of your fav oil and pour mixture into a glass jar. Cream will immediately begin to thicken.
NOTE: Make sure you are not adding oils which are phototoxic, as after using these oils, you should not be exposed to sun. Example of such oils are essential oils of citrus.
- palenta (corn flour) or zeolite
One or the other, the palenta is a phenomenal peeling of skin tand the water is enough to wash other impurities. If you want healthy natural bath, then just put 1-2 teaspoons of zeolite in a full bath of water or just rinse with it
- soda or zeolite
All you need to do is hit a little baking soda or zeolite beneath your armpits. Try, you will never use deodorant again.
