Last year, I picked up this awesome eBook, DIY Organic Beauty Recipes by Heather Dessinger of Mommypotamus. It is packed with 50 easy, DIY organic beauty product recipes! I have been using it for all my skin and body care essentials – face wash, toothpaste, lotion, deodorant, etc. Switching out my store bought products for these organic homemade versions has saved me money and I know exactly what I am putting on my skin!
According to DIY Organic Beauty Recipes, “Right now as you and I sit here there are about 30,000-50,000 chemicals coursing through our bodies, many of which were lathered into our hair before we could write our ABC’s: potent hormone disruptors, formaldehyde and cancer-causing 1,4 dioxane to name a few”.
Many organic brands are actually not much better than conventional brands when it comes to the use of harmful chemicals. I like to either use the EWG Skin Deep database to find safe products or I make my own. I tend to go with the latter option more often, now that I know how easy it is to make my own. All you need is a good recipe, a little bit of time and quality ingredients.
All the recipes in this eBook are tried and true! I have yet to try one that I haven’t absolutely loved.
I was flipping through this eBook again recently and I found so many recipes that would make amazing holiday gifts! I am excited to gift friends, family and neighbors things that are nourishing for their skin.
Here are a few of the things I plan to make as holiday gifts this year:
Lemon Salve for Even Skin Tone
White Chocolate and Peppermint Lotion Bar
Sweet Orange and Honey Shampoo

Help. I just used your website link to order the DIY book by Heather Dessinger. My paypal account says “complete”, showing payment to her, but I have no email or anything with the ebook. I’m sorry for posting this, but not sure where else to go.
Sorry for the last post. The ebook was just delayed in arriving. I received the info to download in an email. I’m excited to look at the book. I also love your website and your holistic approach. 🙂
No worries, Karen! Sorry that I didn’t see your comment earlier. I am glad that the book came through!
