Baking Soda…

or sodium bicarbonate is often used in baking, as a polishing agent & for deep cleaning/deodorizing around the house.

I use it instead of the many harsh and toxic household cleaners & get great results.  Sprinkle some on half a grapefruit & clean the bath!

Baking soda is also used for cleaning teeth & as a deodorant too.  As a a natural beauty solution it is effective in treating acne &  can correct the skin’s pH balance & help to heal breakouts.

The combination of bicarb & coconut oil is great for getting deep into your pores to prevent acne and blackheads & removing excess dirt, oil and exfoliating dead skin.

Coconut oil is antibacterial & moisturising but you can use any oil you prefer.  I use hemp oil or rosehipseed oil…

Baking Soda and Coconut Oil Facial Cleanser

Only make enough for one treatment at a time & wash your hands beforehand just as you would when preparing food to prevent bacterial contamination.

Mix 2 tspns of coconut oil [or oil of your choice] with 1 tsp of bicarb to make a paste.  Apply to your skin & massage in.  Leave for 5 minutes & rinse with luke-warm water.  Pat dry.  You may not even need to apply moisturiser afterwards.
