DIY Bath Bombs

Bath bombs are a fun way to make your bath enjoyable and luxurious. When you drop them into your tub, they fizzle and dissolve, adding beneficial ingredients into your bath. These easy bath bombs from Wellness Mama are great because they don’t contain the artificial ingredients that are sometimes contained in store-bought versions.
Plus, they are customizable – after using a base of salt, baking soda, and citric acid, the possibilities are endless. We love the mixtures of lavender & vanilla and rose & ylang-ylang.
DIY Hair Masks
Hair masks are treatments that condition and heal your hair. Good Housekeeping has you covered with seven different hair masks for various hair types. If your locks are dry, dull, or damaged, look no further. Just raid your kitchen and mix up a batch of one of these masks.
The honey, egg, and apple cider vinegar mask is perfect for dry hair, while those with greasy hair should check out the egg white and lemon mask.

Body scrubs help you remove dead skin cells, promoting soft and smooth skin. This DIY Coffee Body Scrub will keep your skin silky smooth this summer.
This coffee body scrub is vegan and has only three ingredients – coffee, sugar, and coconut oil – which means you can quickly whip some up whenever you’d like! Exfoliating periodically is beneficial for your skin, and is an essential step to a summer spa day.
