Homemade products are in trend and why not, they are good for your health. Most of these products are easy to make too. Check out!
Homemade products seem to be the biggest trend lately, everything from deodorant to cooking spray. They sound difficult to make but actually most of the popular homemade products are extremely easy to make and require less than 5 ingredients, are a fraction of the cost of commercial products, but most importantly, they’re better for you and your health!
1. Homemade Fruit & Veggie Wash
Just a couple of ingredients that you probably already have at home to make this all-natural fruit and veggie wash! Fill a spray bottle with the baking soda, lemon juice, and water, shake gently, then spray and rub on your fresh produce. Don’t forget to rinse. If you’d like to label your bottle. Check out this pack of 40 unique labels in varying sizes.
2. Homemade Ear Drops
To prevent swimmer’s ear, put about 4 drops of this homemade ear drop solution (1 part vinegar to 1 part alcohol) in each ear after a day in the water. This is not for use if you already have an existing ear infection– the alcohol naturally helps dry out your ears while the vinegar helps combat the build-up of bacteria.

3. Homemade Foot Soak
There’s nothing better than sitting down to relax after a long day, especially if you’ve been on your feet for countless hours, and you might as well soak your feet while you’re at it! I’ve heard many great things about Epsom salt, but the idea behind this foot soak is that it draws impurities and toxins out of your body.
Mix the Epsom salt, baking soda, and lavender essential oil together in a container you plan on storing it in and use about 1/4 of the mixture in as warm of water as you can handle each time you soak. I like to use one of those disposable baking pans (although I reuse it over and over) and fill the bottom with marbles. Now that feels good! If you’re making this as a gift, don’t forget to give it a pretty label!
