    I’m so happy I came across this post today, as I was planning to make my very own Lavender Bath Salt and a homemade Body Scrub for myself today. I really love the DIY makeup remove so I’m going to add that to the list as well!

    I love the rose water spray!! I have used essential oils my whole life and I cant even tell you the miracle that has come from them in my life! Natural remedies are the way to go. Always, I resort to making my own products before I go buy some.

    I love these ideas. I’m an avid hiker and backpacker and I look for natural products to use while I’m on the trail and at home. I’m going to try the dry shampoo the next time I’m on an extended backpacking trip. Thanks for the great post!
