Sweet Skin Softening scrubs from: Coconut Oil or olive oil Sugar Mason jar Essential Oils (optional)
Olive Oil, Essential Oil, Homemade Beautiful, Homemade Scrubs, Homemade Body Scrubs, Sugar Scrubs, Coconut Oil, Mason Jars, Skin Softener
Simply Sweet Skin Softening Sugar Scrubs- Things you need: Coconut Oil Sugar Mason jar Essential Oils (optional) Things to do: 1. Melt coconut oil. Or, if you can’t find coconut oil, use olive oil which is just as beneficial for your skin although it does have a stronger scent. The amount of oil to use depends on how big a batch you want to make. 2. Pour in enough sugar to make a paste. 3. If you like, you can enhance the treatment with an aromatherapy effect by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil. 4. Pour the skin treatment into a clean glass jar with a secure lid. Scoop a bit out every day when you shower and rub it over the parts of your body that need help exfoliating like elbows, knees and feet. Unlike some home beauty treatments, which should be made in small batches and used immediately to avoid spoilage, this one keeps beautifully for months. You can make this a beautiful gift for a friend by pouring in into a mason jar. Decorate the jar with stickers or decoupage images to personalize it. Wrap the jar with a towel to protect the artwork as you pour the body scrub in. Tie some colorful ribbon or raffia into a bow and give your friend a gorgeous gift. Your body scrub can also be part of a beautiful home foot treatment that will leave you feeling pampered and your feet feeling (and looking) more lovely. Fill a foot bath (or large pan) with 1 part water and 1 part apple cider vinegar. Rinse any dirt off your feet first, and then soak your feet in the vinegar bath. The vinegar will cool hot, aching feet after a day of hiking or yard work in the summer sun. The vinegar will take the both the ache and the odor out of your feet, leaving them cool and refreshed. After soaking your feet for 5 minutes, rub the coconut oil-sugar exfoliant into your soles. Then soak the feet again in the vinegar for another 10 minutes. Have a towel handy to wipe your feet off afterward.

Easiest homemade laundry soap recipe ever!
"DIY Laundry soap via Yellow Brick Home" >> Took 25 minutes from start to finish (including getting out the ingredients, putting everything away, and clean up). Grating took 15+ minutes of that time. A food processor might help? Also, the scent was very strong. I felt like I needed a face mask. Need to wear gloves with Fels Naptha. We'll see how the clothes turn out!
Homemade laundry detergent. so much better than the liquid DIY laundry soap. So far the clothes are coming out clean!
10 Laundry Soap Recipes. This is the best website I have found yet. I save sooo much money making my own laundry soap. There are lots of good reccomendations in the comments too.

10 Homemade Laundry Soap Detergent Recipes 270 Comments Print EmailHere is a nice stack of different homemade laundry detergent recipes I’ve collected over the years. Do they work? Yes, I’ve had good luck with them. At the time I was using them, we had a relative who was in trade school living with us. Every day he was mechanic grease from head to toe–the clothes still cleaned up nice! Making your own is a discipline and it’s not for everyone, but it definitely...
Laundry detergent recipes: First Some Tips: Tipnut's Homemade Laundry Detergent For the bar soaps required in the recipes, you could try Fels-Naptha, Ivory soap, Sunlight bar soap, Kirk’s Hardwater Castile, and Zote. Don’t use heavily perfumed soaps. Washing Soda and Borax can normally be found in the laundry and cleaning aisles. Some people with really hard water or well water may have to adjust the ingredients if the clothes look dingy. Although several of the recipes have the same ingredients, the measurements are different–some contain a higher soap to water ratio. Test and see which works best for your needs. You can make huge pails of this at once, or smaller quantities. Also if you can get your hands on a few empty liquid laundry detergent bottles they work great for storing the detergent. Just make a big batch and pour in bottles, cap then use as needed–shake before use. Some of the recipes call for large amounts of water. Check with a local restaurant to see if they have any empty large pails from deep fryer oil–that’s how many restaurants buy the oil. See if you can have one or two of the pails after they’ve emptied it–just wash them out really well before using. They’re big, heavy plastic and very sturdy when stirring the soap and hot water. #1 1 quart Water (boiling) 2 cups Bar soap (grated) 2 cups Borax 2 cups Washing Soda Add finely grated bar soap to the boiling water and stir until soap is melted. You can keep on low heat until soap is melted. Pour the soap water into a large, clean pail and add the Borax and Washing Soda. Stir well until all is dissolved. Add 2 gallons of water, stir until well mixed. Cover pail and use 1/4 cup for each load of laundry. Stir the soap each time you use it (will gel). #2 Hot water 1 cup Washing Soda 1/2 cup Borax 1 Soap bar Grate the bar soap and add to a large saucepan with hot water. Stir over medium-low heat until soap dissolves and is melted. Fill a 10 gallon pail half full of hot water. Add the melted soap, Borax and Washing soda, stir well until all powder is dissolved. Top the pail up with more hot water. Use 1 cup per load, stirring soap before each use (will gel). #3 Hot water 1/2 cup Washing Soda 1/2 cup Borax 1/3 bar Soap (grated) In a large pot, heat 3 pints of water. Add the grated bar soap and stir until melted. Then add the washing soda and borax. Stir until powder is dissolved, then remove from heat. In a 2 gallon clean pail, pour 1 quart of hot water and add the heated soap mixture. Top pail with cold water and stir well. Use 1/2 cup per load, stirring soap before each use (will gel). Powdered – Recipe #4 2 cups Fels Naptha Soap (finely grated – you could also try the other bar soaps listed at the top) 1 cup Washing Soda 1 cup Borax Mix well and store in an airtight plastic container. Use 2 tablespoons per full load. #5 Hot water 1 bar (4.5 oz) Ivory Soap – grated 1 cup Washing Soda In a large saucepan add grated soap and enough hot water to cover. Heat over medium-low heat and stir until soap is melted. Fill a large pail with 2.5 gallons of hot water, add hot soap mixture. Stir until well mixed. Then add the washing soda, again stirring until well mixed. Set aside to cool. Use 1/2 cup per full load, stirring well before each use (will gel) #6 2.5 gallons Water (hot) 1 Bar soap (grated) 3/4 cup Washing Soda 3/4 cup Borax 2 TBS Glycerin Melt bar soap over medium-low heat topped with water, stir until soap is melted. In a large pail, pour 2.5 gallons of hot water, add melted soap mixture, washing soda, borax and glycerin. Mix well. Use 1/2 cup per full load. #7 2 cups Bar soap (grated) 2 cups Washing Soda 2 – 2.5 gallons hot water Melt grated soap in saucepan with water to cover. Heat over medium-low heat and stir until soap is dissolved. Pour hot water in large pail, add hot soap and washing soda. Stir very well. Use 1 cup per full load. #8 2 gallons Water (hot) 1 bar Soap (grated) 2 cups Baking soda (yes baking soda this time–not washing soda) Melt grated soap in a saucepan with enough hot water to cover. Cook on medium-low heat, stirring frequently until soap is melted. In a large pail, pour 2 gallons hot water. Add melted soap, stir well. Then add the baking soda, stir well again. Use 1/2 cup per full load, 1 cup per very soiled load. Powdered – Recipe #9 12 cups Borax 8 cups Baking Soda 8 cups Washing Soda 8 cups Bar soap (grated) Mix all ingredients well and store in a sealed tub. Use 1/8 cup of powder per full load. #10 – (Powdered) 1 cup Vinegar (white) 1 cup Baking Soda 1 cup Washing Soda 1/4 cup liquid castile soap Mix well and store in sealed container. I find it easiest to pour the liquid soap into the bowl first, stirred in the washing soda, then baking soda, then added the vinegar in small batches at a time (the recipe foams up at first). The mixture is a thick paste at first that will break down into a heavy powdered detergent, just keep stirring. There may be some hard lumps, try to break them down when stirring (it really helps to make sure the baking soda isn’t clumpy when first adding). I used 1/2 cup per full load with great results. Note For Liquid Versions Soap will be lumpy, goopy and gel-like. This is normal. Just give it a good stir before using. Make sure soap is covered with a lid when not in use. You could also pour the soap in old (and cleaned) laundry detergent bottles and shake well before each use. *If you can’t find Fels-Naptha locally, you can buy it online (check Amazon). Optional You can add between 10 to 15 drops of essential oil (per 2 gallons) to your homemade detergent. Add once the soap has cooled to room temperature. Stir well and cover. Essential oil ideas: lavender, rosemary, tea tree oil
