Ingredients we need to make home-made cosmetics

Hi there! It's me Svetlana.
We will need these organic ingredients to make home-made cosmetics:


Fruits

Vegetables

Berries

Coffee grounds

Cacao powder

Oils (either one of these: olive, sunflower, castor, or any light vegetable oil like canola oil; also coconut and tea tree oils)

Butter

Eggs

Salt (sea or table)

Baking soda

Sugar

Oats

Essential oils

Herbs (fresh or dried)

Milk

Sour cream

Kefir

Yogurt

Honey

Lemons

Aloe vera

Beer

Castile soap

Vinegar

Mayonnaise

Herbal teas and regular black tea

Cornstarch

Flower

Alcohol (any of this will do: vodka, gin, rum, witch hazel).

So long!

You noticed that these are affordable and easily found ingredients. I shop in regular food stores (while shopping for groceries) or local natural food stores. Again, you may already have many of them in your fridge and kitchen cabinets. Small amounts will take you far in homemade cosmetics. Always use fresh ingredients. Store final products in the fridge.
