3 DIY Self-Care Products


The Texas Pioneer WomanI’ve made three homemade self-care products that I would like to share with you. Self-care products are essential for wellness. Wellness is purposefully making choices for a good life where you have mental, social and physical peace where ever you are at any given moment throughout life’s changes.

Once you learn to make these three personal care products you will never have to buy them again. Plus, and perhaps more importantly, when you make your own products you know precisely what  ingredients goes into making them.

All of these do-it-yourself products pertain to keeping your feet happy and healthy. Most often we do not think of our feet because they are covered up inside of our shoes. We are so dependent on our feet to get us everywhere we need to go. They are such hard workers for us and often are so overlooked and forgotten. You do not need expensive spa treatments to take care of your feet; instead you can make these  homemade self-care products for your feet.
