Benefits of Shea Butter
If you’ve ever done a little research looking for natural remedies for dry skin, we’re sure shea butter has made it on to nearly every one of those lists. That’s because shea butter helps create a protective barrier around your skin so that your skin doesn’t lose any of that yummy moisture. It’s safe for most skin types, even sensitive skin types, and can be used on the face, hands, lips, and well, just about anywhere!
Because shea butter comes from a nut, it won’t clog your pores like many other oils might. It can be used to moisturize the hair and scalp too, especially for those who have dandruff or dry scalp! Its antifungal, antibacterial properties, plus the presence of both vitamins E and A help repair a variety of skin irritations from the scalp to the toes! It can also help prevent or fade the presence of stretch marks.
Benefits of Coconut Oil
Coconut oil for many of us is the mother of all oils. It has heaps of healing and medicinal benefits, both when consumed or when applied topically to the skin and hair.
Coconut oil can be used to condition the hair, reduce the presence of dandruff and dry flakage, it can be used to clean and remove bacteria from the gums and teeth, and it can be used as a pre-shave oil to prevent razor burn.
But it doesn’t end there!
Coconut oil can also be used as your skin moisturizer for lips, cuticles, and it can even soothe eczema. It’ll be a real challenge to try and find a DIY recipe or natural moisturizer or conditioner that doesn’t include this highly medicinal and soothing ingredient!
Benefits of Kaolin Clay
Kaolin clay is most famous for drawing up impurities, dirt and bacteria from the pores. It is safe to use on the face and all around the body. Most clay masks will help keep oily skin at bay as it absorbs all that excess oil from the surface of the skin. If you have no known allergy to clays, then you should be just about good to go, since Kaolin clay can benefit nearly all skin types. Kaolin clay is the clay for you if you have dry to sensitive skin as it gently exfoliates the skin without being too abrasive.
Benefits of Cornstarch, Baking Soda, Candelilla Wax
Both cornstarch and baking soda will also gently exfoliate the skin, aiding in removing dead skin cells to even out skin tones. Cornstarch is a natural drying agent which can be used to alleviate yeast infections, to remove skin fungus and can help alleviate skin irritation and itchiness because of its high concentration of zinc.
Baking soda can help brighten one’s complexion, soften calluses, absorb sweat to prevent excess perspiration, and its antibacterial properties will kill off any odor-creating bacteria from the underarms and feet.
Candelilla wax is like beeswax except it is absorbed more easily by the skin. Candelilla won’t clog pores, making it a great option for those with oily skin types looking for moisture because it’s a great humuctant, supplying your skin with necessary moisture (especially when paired with other moisturizing ingredients like shea butter!)
Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is an extremely popular ingredient in the natural community. Why? Because it’s just so darn good!
It can help remove or alleviate acne, dandruff, warts, tone the skin, add sheen to hair, remove aging spots or signs of hyperpigmentation, and so much more!
What makes apple cider vinegar so incredible is the abundance of calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sodium, sulfur, copper, iron, and silicon - try saying that in one breath!.
It’s also rich in B vitamins, vitamin C, acetic acid, and citric acid, which help fight off bacteria and fungus.
ACV is a very potent ingredient and should only be used with care and careful research, because when it’s used incorrectly it can cause more harm than good. We don’t want to scare you off, but we do want you to get all the benefits in a safe way.
Benefits of Zinc Oxide
Zinc oxide is an incredible natural ingredient that will actually sit on the surface of the skin, rather than get absorbed by the skin. Why is this beneficial? Well, because it’s there protecting your skin from dangerous environmental pollutants, like harmful UV rays and air pollution. It can help alleviate rosacea, psoriasis, eczema and acne. It can also speed up the healing process through its ability to stimulate the formation of collagen.
Benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil
Yummy peppermint essential oil!
Peppermint oil is an amazing essential oil that can be used as a natural remedy for the following:
- Relieves congestion and sinuses
- To boost energy and fight off fatigue
- Improves alertness and attentiveness in the classroom
- Reduces fever
- Relieves headaches and anxiety

Sounds like a keeper to us!
Benefits of Orange Essential Oil
Besides for its toning, soothing and skin moisturizing properties, orange essential oil can also be used to relieve stress, boost brain function, increase creativity, and improve sleep. The limonene antioxidant found in orange essential oil makes it a great oil to use for a skin detox, as it naturally cleans the skin fighting off skin-damaging bacteria.
