My Favorite DIY’s Ever

This post is a collection of my favorite diy’s ever. I get comments about this on a regular basis on Instagram as well as Youtube and figured it’s about time I compile them all into one post. Let’s do this!

My Favorite DIY's Ever

Homemade Herbal Shampoo Bars

When I am not traveling around the world for months on end, this is what I use on my hair and face. I don’t really use soap on my body unless I shave or happen to be extremely dirty.

Out of all the soaps that I’ve purchased over the years, this is my absolute favorite one! I can make it myself within less than an hour and only a handful of ingredients.

Body & Lip Balm

This is a super basic recipe that I’ve made several times and absolutely love. It’s a body balm, it’s a lip balm – it’s whatever you want it to be.

It only contains three ingredients and can be made within minutes. It’s easy, it’s quick and it’s incredibly good for you!


This deodorant consists of less than 7 ingredients and I absolutely love it! I’ve made this particular recipe multiple times since and keep coming back to it.

If you’ve never tried a natural diy deodorant, then this is the recipe I recommend trying first. Making your own deodorant is fun, and it’s so much better for you than the store-bought alternatives!

Face mask

I am huge on face mask and make a face mask at least once a week. It keeps my skin free of excessive pimples and makes it feel incredibly clean.

Bentonite clay and black charcoal powder are my favorite ingredients for making my own masks. If you’ve never given it a try, give it a go.

Dry Shampoo

I used to use store-bought dry shampoo and disliked buying it because it wasn’t cheap and only came in spray bottles. A couple of years ago I switched to a diy version and I absolutely love it.

This particular one only consists of one ingredient and while it can be a little tricky to find, it’s so worth it! If you are currently using a store-bought dry shampoo, then give this one a try.

This was it for my favorite diy’s ever.

I love making things myself and greatly enjoy trying out new recipes. If you’ve got something that you make on a regular basis, then please share your recipe in the comments.

    Wow! Thank you for this. I will write the recipes down in my notebook. I am mostly looking forward to try the lip/face/body moisturizer. Winters in northern Sweden are so dry. I will also buy some clay.

    I am sick and tired of all the chemicals, perfumes and plastic that conventional products come with.

    Thank you for sharing <3

      I figured it’s time to put them all into one post! šŸ™‚ Totally! I really like the body balm – I can’t wait to make it again! It’s really thick and perfect for winter.

      I’ve also found that it’s a lot cheaper to make my own as opposed to buying something similar at a store. You can make something however you like it and don’t have to compromise or put up with ingredients that you aren’t overly fond of.

      I think it’s awesome!

      I plan to try lots of new diy’s in 2019 and will also share those on the blog. Provided, of course, that they turn out!!! šŸ˜€
