d.i.y.friday ~ Homemade Natural Bath Set

Homemade bath and beauty products are easy to make and serve as wonderful gifts – especially with Christmas coming up. I like that I can make them natural and cruelty free, avoid excess consumerism, and personalize the set to peoples tastes. Lots of mainstream beauty products are full of detrimental chemicals, many scented candles actually contain fragrances that are toxic when they burn – so it’s great to be able to create safer alternatives.
