I want to welcome you to my DIY Beauty Ideas website dedicated to natural and healthy beauty products. Hope you will enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing.

I started this website because I wanted to share the knowledge I gained while making my own natural beauty products.

I know how difficult it can be in the beginning, not knowing anything about making cosmetics or ingredients that should be used.

So if you have been thinking about making your own homemade beauty products or you just want to expand your knowledge, you are in the right place! This is where you will find detailed information about making your own products and what ingredients to use (and why).

Why homemade cosmetics?

If you are new to the idea of making your own products then you might be wondering why are our own homemade beauty products better than purchased products. The reason is clear – homemade beauty products don’t contain any artificial fragrances and unhealthy artificial chemicals like most of the products we purchase in a store. Even when the product says ‘natural’ it most often contains something not natural.

When I decided to make a switch to natural cosmetics, I started buying beauty products from aromatherapists in my area. But then I realized – I can do it all by myself. There are recipes available in books and some are available online (such as on this website) so why wouldn’t I just do it myself and save myself some money and enjoy while doing it. Yes, making homemade cosmetics is really fun.

By making your own cosmetics, you can actually save quite a bit of money. Most of the beauty products available for the purchase cost much much more than their cost of making. Making homemade beauty products costs more upfront but when you supply yourself with all the ingredients you need, you are equipped for a long time. So on a long run, you are saving money.

Some ingredients that are used in homemade beauty products can even be found in your refrigerator right now.

What is being published?

On this website, you’ll find all the information I learned while making homemade beauty products. It will save you the time of searching for this information and recipes all over the internet or going through all kinds of books.  This website has it all in one place!

Just read about using mustard oil for darkening hair. I had also read this on WikiHow. They suggested a patch test first for any skin irritation and also a warning mustard oil is not to be consumed. due to adverse reaction. You may want to caution folks using some of the DYI recipes.
Thanks, Susan

Hi, thank you for pointing that out. Yeah, I didn’t mention this as it’s going on the hair but you are right. I will add this caution tip as the mustard oil will touch the scalp too, not just the hair. Thanks again!
