DIY Home Products

Here at Seed & Sprout we are always looking at ways to reduce waste and our footprint on the planet! Recently we did an Instagram Live where you might have seen us giving some DIY home products a go. We made a Toothpaste, Deodorant and a Coffee Body Scrub!

Making your own products just makes sense on all angles! It’s cheaper to make, it feels better, and it is better for you! They’re all so easy to make, too! You simply mix all the ingredients together!

PACKAGING:

Another benefit of making your own products is that you can put it in glass jars or stainless steel containers that you can wash and reuse infinitely. No plastic, no trash, no landfill!

BONUS TIP:

To remove labels off recycled jars easily, simple pour boiling hot water into your jar (keep the label dry) let it sit for 10min then the label should peel straight off, remove any glue residue using Eucalyptus Oil.
