Yeah, you guessed it. I make most of my personal care products. And here’s what I use.
I am ashamed to say that I don’t clean that much. I should. I want to. I don’t like being filthy but remembering to do basic chores has never been my strong suit, even before allergy life. I kept an okay house during my calmer times but any time I got in the least bit busy, the the dishes and laundry would pile up apallingly high before I did anything about them. Then my food allergies went out of control and I started having to spend a ton of time cooking, researching, and sourcing safe food on top of my full-time-and-then-some job. So yeah, lately I don’t clean too much. Fortunately my wonderful boyfriend puts up with it and (usually) good-naturedly does way more than his fair share. Then every few months I go crazy cleaning All The Things to make up for my general slovenliness. Well, maybe it’s been more than a few by this point.
But here are the products that get used when cleaning happens.
1 cup coconut oil
2 tsp neem oil
- Melt coconut oil.
- Stir in neem oil.
- Transfer to jar.
- Allow to harden.
- Rub on when you need it.
Should store at room temperature pretty well indefinitely, but I’d ditch it after 12 months or so.
