Grow Your Own DIY Beauty Products

Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? With silver bells and cockleshells and beauty product ingredients all in a row! Ok, so this is not how the famous nursery rhyme by Mother Goose really goes. Maybe the reason Mary is contrary is because her garden isn’t growing what she needs to make her own beauty products at home!

DIY face masks, moisturizing creams, and exfoliating cleansers are rapidly becoming more popular, giving the $445 billion-dollar cosmetic industry a run for their money. People everywhere are saving and repinning beauty recipes on Pinterest that include ingredients you already have in your home. Why not try growing your own?

DIY You Gotta Try

Here are some of our favorite beauty DIY recipes that call for items you can grow in your garden. Choose from face and hair masks, homemade lotions, sugar scrubs, and more! For even more great recipes, check out our “Beauty Ingredients in Your Garden” board on Pinterest.

Beautify From Within

If you are looking for ways to save money and have a little more control about what you are putting on your face, on your skin, and in your hair, consider growing some of the ingredients in your very own garden.

Some of these DIY beauty recipes might not have you laughing alone with your salad but growing the ingredients in your very own garden can help you reach your beauty goals in two ways:

  1. 1) Using natural ingredients instead of using chemicals
  2. 2) Providing nutrients your body needs for glowing skin and healthy hair

What Else Can You Do?
