10 Great Ways to Use Essential Oils


5. Homemade Toiletries

Do you know what toxic chemicals are lurking in your shampoo or body lotion? Most store bought toiletries contain irritants such as sodium lauryl sulphate and alpha hydroxy acid.

Making your own soaps, moisturizers and shampoos is both safer and economic. Grate a 100 g bar of Castile or olive oil soap into 400 ml of water.

Place the mixture on the stove, and boil gently until the soap is completely dissolved. Add your favorite essential oils and herbs to create a non-toxic shampoo and shower gel.
