When we mistakenly ordered 2 pounds of dried rose petals, I was eager to discover all the different ways I could incorporate them into my DIY skincare and beauty routine.
Roses have been a skincare standby for centuries, and for good reason. No matter your age or skin type, you can benefit from the inclusion of rose-infused products in your skincare regimen.
You can infuse anything with rose petals. Not only do they smell intoxicating, but they also possess a plethora of therapeutic properties. This makes them a wonderful addition to your DIY skincare arsenal.
Who doesn’t love a soaking in a warm bath with a good book and a glass of something delicious? Added bonus if you add a fragrant, fizzy bath bomb to your bath water.
Unfortunately, far too often store-bought bath bombs smell like you overdid it in the perfume aisle. Not ideal for the scent sensitive folks, or for those who want to avoid synthetic fragrances. Store-bought bath bombs can also contain toxic dyes which have been linked to UTI’s and yeast infections. And at $8 or more a pop, they’re far from economical.
The majority of store-bought cleaning sprays contain endocrine disrupting chemicals that can be harmful to your health. As well, the synthetic fragrances used in these products can irritate those who are sensitive to scents. As someone who suffers from chronic migraines, it’s extremely important to avoid these chemical fragrances as they can trigger a headache.
Also, for those with little ones at home, avoiding harmful fragrances is equally as important. And while there are definitely a variety of fantastic green cleaning products on the market, we have yet to find a natural cleaning spray that not only works well, but is affordable.
