When trying to use natural products in your home, one of the most cost efficient ways is to DIY. We love DIYing things over here and thought I’d share some of the best Amazon products for this and how you can use them.
Some of these things are ingredients, some are containers but they are all products that would be super helpful to have on hand so you can DIY some natural products.

1. Baking Soda
Baking soda is good for so many things! One of my favorite things to do with it is put some in a jar and add some drops of essential oils and then sprinkle it over my carpet. I let it sit for about 30 minutes then vacuum it up and it helps your carpet smell so much cleaner.
You can also make a paste with water and use it as a sink scrub or like a DIY soft scrub. Honestly you can use it to clean almost anything in your home.
You can also use it to deodorize your trashcan. All you have to do is put some in the bottom of the can and it’ll soak up the yucky smells.
And don’t forget the beauty DIY’s. You can use it in a detox bath or to do the no poo method for your hair. I love using baking soda on my hair when I feel it needs a little more powerful washing.

There are also many ways that you can use bentonite clay. You can make a face mask with it but adding some water and essential oils or you could make a detox bath with it.
Some people even use it as toothpaste as it’s known to help rid your body of toxins.
3. Epsom Salt
Epsom salt is one of my favorites to keep around the house. I love to add oils to it and then add it to my bath. Epsom salts help with muscle aches too.
You can also use it as a skin exfoliant and for a foot soak.
Fractionated coconut oil is coconut oil that won’t harden, it will stay in a liquid form. The most common way to use it is as a carrier oil for essential oils.
You can also use it as a makeup remover and a massage oil. Just add some essential oils and you have a great massage oil.
5. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has so many good benefits and so many uses. You’ve probably heard people talking about oil pulling which is done using coconut oil.
I’ve also used it as a hair mask to help moisturize my hair. I add some hair supporting oils like cedarwood and lavender and then put the coconut oil all in my hair. You can leave it for however long you like, some people recommend overnight. Then you just wash it out.
You can make scrubs and lotions, use it as a makeup remover and even cook with it.
6. Jojoba Oil
Jojoba oil is great for skin so I like to use it in any face serums that I make. I add in essential oils and use it as my face moisturizer.
You can also use it as a makeup remover or after shaving to help minimize skin irritations. Jojoba oil can be used as a hair mask also.
This is one of my favorite Amazon products on this list. This glass spray bottle is good for all of your cleaning and household needs. You could use it make all purpose cleaner, air freshener, glass cleaner or fill it with water to water your plant.
The options are endless and these spray the perfect amount and I’ve never had issues with them clogging or getting messed up.

9. Glass Jars
These glass jars are good for storing all of your homemade concoctions. We use them to store scrubs, lotions, baking soda, coconut oil, and so much more. The possibilities are endless.
This is another one of my favorite Amazon products on the list, its just so pretty and practical. These little dropper bottles are good for several things. You can make a homemade face serum and store it in these.
