Homemade tooth whitener. Use a little toothpaste, mix in one tsp baking soda, one tsp hydrogen peroxide, and half a tsp water. Thoroughly mix then brush your teeth for two minutes. Do this once a week until you have reached the results you want. Once your teeth are good and white, limit yourself to using the whitening treatment once every month or two.
Hair conditioner. Mix a tsp of apple cider vinegar and a tsp of glycerin. Mix ingredients until smooth. Mix in a beaten egg. Add 2 Tbsp caster oil. Thoroughly mix. Apply mask on the entire length of the hair. Place hair in plastic cap and wrap your head with a towel. Leave mask on for 2 hrs. Wash hair using shampoo. The mask should be done 2x a week for a month. After 1 month, apply 1 time every 2 weeks to keep hair in good condition.
Once a week for 20 minutes, sit in a hot bath that contains a handful of Epsom salts, 10 drops of lavender essential oil, and a half cup of baking soda. This combo draws out toxins, lowers stress-related hormones, and balances your pH levels. Good to know!
