(NaturalNews) Most body
care products that you buy from the store are full of harmful chemicals
and toxins that don't even clean your skin or hair properly. The
products that are natural and organic that actually work are expensive.
There is a perfect combination of inexpensive ingredients you can find
in your kitchen that will give you the cleanest teeth, hair and skin you
Apple Cider Vinegar
Dr. Bronner's Soap
Himalayan Pink Salt
Idea 1: Oil Pulling:
Take a tablespoon of
coconut oil and put it in your mouth. If it was hard, it will liquify.
Keep it in your mouth for about 20 minutes, gently swirling around in
the mouth. When 20 minutes has gone, spit into a trash can or outside;
don't ever spit in a sink or toilet, as it could clog the drains. Oil
pulling is excellent for dental hygiene, while protecting the teeth
against bacterial rot and improving the digestive system by speeding up
Coconut oil should be a staple at home. It is so incredible for you with its antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties. It can be used all over the body, a tablespoon for constipation, for cooking, for oil pulling, deep conditioning and more.
Heat oil (olive, jojoba,
almond, coconut, etc.) and pour warm oil on the roots and hair. Put
hair up. This helps with hair growth and conditions the hair.
Spread honey all over the
face and let sit for 20 minutes. The honey pulls out the toxins and
black heads while tightening the skin.
2 tablespoons of baking soda and add 1 teaspoon of Himalayan pink salt.
oil pulling, dip your brush into the tooth powder and brush away.
You will have the cleanest and whitest teeth ever. You can also add
coconut oil with the baking soda and salt to make a paste. The baking
soda and salt help deep-clean the teeth and gums while making the teeth
Rinse the mouth with
hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide kills bacteria in the gums.
Head for the shower. When
you get in, rinse the honey off of your face. Grab the Dr. Bronner's
soap. Pour some in your hand and scrub into the hair and face.
Take the bottle of apple
cider vinegar and fill the capful. Pour capfuls onto the roots of the
hair and let it drip down the rest of the hair. Try and get a bit of ACV
on the entire head of hair. Then massage some into your face as a toner.
Take a drink of the ACV and rinse off the face with water. Apple cider
vinegar has incredible benefits for the body inside and out.
Take a handful of sugar
and mix with Dr. Bronner's Soap, then scrub your skin to remove all of
the dead skin that rests on the surface. Rinse body completely.
Once you dry off from your
shower, take a bit of coconut oil and put a light layer on the skin,
face, arms, hands, bottom of feet and anywhere else you want deep skin
Voila! You are extra clean and beautified with products from your kitchen. If you create this as your daily ritual, people in your life will start asking you why you look so good! You can tell that them its from your kitchen.
