First of all, I am about any DIYs that'll save me some $$$$. But, I'm also into the idea of making all-natural products so I know exactly what is inside of them! 

I know a lot of people who are allergic to the ingredients inside standard beauty and household products, plus there are often chemicals in them that nobody wants on their body!

So, I've found a list of some solid products that you can make yourself, using all-natural ingredients you might already have at home.

1. Charcoal is definitely having its moment, with tons of products using activated charcoal that are available commercially. 

Cleanly Consumed used charcoal to create their own DIY scrub, and honestly it seems pretty easy to do yourself!

To make your own scrub, you'll need sugar, coconut oil, activated charcoal, and some of your fave essential oils.

Then you basically mix it all together and you've got a fun scrub for your body! There are tons of ways to customize this, and it would make a sweet gift.

2. Essential oils are super useful when it comes to creating your own all-natural products.

In fact, I actually have a box of them in my desk right now, waiting to be turned into fun sprays, lotions, and more. 

Just make sure you are getting the pure ones, not the synthetic ones.

Once you've got your collection, you can make a ton of products like The Nutty Pear did.

These lip balms would be super fun to make in all sorts of fun flavors!

3. How much money do you spend on dryer sheets and laundry every month?!

I've been trying to use dryer balls more frequently, but My Momtastic Life has a way to create your own reusable dryer sheets.

You're going to need a large jar to keep everything in, as well water, white vinegar, vegetable glycerine, and some cotton quilting squares.

Toss in some of your favorite essential oils and you'll do the best laundry of your life!

4. I've heard a lot of friends talk about wanting to make the switch to all-natural toothpaste.

Turns out, you can just make it yourself if you want to give it a try! 

Trash Is For Tossers came up with a simple recipe that you can probably make with ingredients you already have in your kitchen.

You're just going to need some baking soda and coconut oil, and you might want to grab a bamboo toothbrush, too.

5. Another DIY using essential oils!

A Cultivated Nest came up with an easy recipe for creating your own body wash, and trust me, you're not going to want to miss it!

I've learned from researching all-natural DIYs that castile soap is a popular ingredient.

Because we want our body washes to have some moisturizing component, you'll also need to add some coconut oil, and of course essential oils to make you smell nice!

6. Who else doesn't leave the house without filling in their brows?

I mean, we all want brows on fleek, right?! A Blossoming Life created her own eyebrow filler, and I've got to try it out.

7. Want an all-natural way to get rid of mosquitoes?!

Mosquito repellent is full of stuff we probably don't want to put on our bodies. According to The Crochet Crowd, you can put cloves and other spices in a lemon to ward them off instead.

8. Okay, so we've got mosquito repellent, beauty products, and makeup, but what about for our hair?

Using jojoba oil, arrowroot powder, beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, and your fave essential oil, you can make pomade!

It seems almost too good to be true, right?!

My boyfriend goes through this stuff so fast, so I'd love to learn how to make it myself. Thanks to One Crazy Mom for this idea!

9. I love this next DIY because it's one I want to try so badly!

I've actually bought all-natural dry shampoo before and I loved it. But one day I dropped the glass bottle and it shattered everywhere.

Poor And Pretty has a recipe for it, though! 

It's a pretty simple process, mixing cornstarch, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and some of your favorite essential oils. I am definitely giving this a try!

10. When I'm sick, I love a good vapor rub bath.

Basically I'm just a weird person, literally bathing in the stuff because it smells so darn good. Luckily, you can make your own at home!

Crunchy Betty shared a recipe, and I'm excited to try it for myself!

You're going to need beeswax and olive oil, and also peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils. I'm excited just thinking about it!

11. While there's no guarantee that an herbal cough drop is going to get rid of a pesky cough, there's no harm in trying with all-natural ingredients.

The Nerdy Farm Wife used items most people have at home to create these!

I love that she used herbal tea to create these! 

You'll also need some sugar, honey, and peppermint extract! I can't wait to give these a try next time I'm sick.

12. Like toothpaste, I know a lot of people are trying to transition to all-natural deodorant. 

But, it's actually harder to find than one might think! Good thing you can make your own.

This Original Organic Life created this deodorant using coconut oil, shea butter, arrowroot powder, baking soda, and essential oils. 

And you can reuse an old deodorant bottle for it, too!

13. I love a good body spray! 

I also like using all-natural ones as a setting spray for my makeup. This similar recipe uses things I definitely have at home. 

14. And we can't forget about our lips!

It's actually pretty easy to make your own lip tint. Again, you're going to see coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, and essential oils. You'll also need almond oil and alkanet root powder, too!
