7. Baking powder
Baking powder has many wonderful beauty benefits. It is nontoxic, cheap and serves perfectly well as a foundation for your homemade beauty-aids. If you are on a tight budget, instead of using high-priced cleansers, mix a tablespoon of baking powder with a cup of water. The powder will dissolve any residues, which will come off in the rinse. The same effect will be with your hair – use baking powder to clean your hair instead of a dry shampoo. You can also add some to you favorite shampoo to achieve more manageable hair. However, be careful not to use baking powder for your hair too often, otherwise you can overdry it. Once or twice a month will be enough.
You can also prepare homemade natural deodorant with baking powder. Combine 1 tsp. of powder with your favorite essential oil, for instance, lavender oil, and apply it with a powder puff onto your underarms to control your body odor. Moreover, you can make your own perfumed bags to aromatize the room and wardrobe. Fill the bags with 3 tablespoons of powder and drop any essential oil. A marvelous scent is guaranteed! This is one of the most amazing vintage tips to use more often.
