Calling all natural living and DIY lovers. Have you heard of The Homegrown Collective yet? If not, you need to!
There are plenty of subscription box services out there, but this one is special. The Homegrown Collective doesn't just provide you with products to sample. They give you the materials and directions you need to complete DIY projects that allow you to live more sustainably!
I previously reviewed their Kombucha box and curated their BEATUY of Coconut box. And after getting to review this month's DIY Detoxify box, if I could have a membership to only one subscription box service, it would absolutely be the Homegrown Collective! I'm envious of some of the past boxes, like Home Remedies & Cure Alls, Honey: How Sweet It Is, Salt of the Earth and more! This month's DIY Detoxify box is pretty awesome.
Take a peak into this month's DIY Detoxify Box and the 3 projects that were included.
Dead Sea Salts & Lavender Fizzing Bath Soaks
I had never made fizzing bath soaks before, but we just got finished doing some science experiments with the girls using baking soda and citric acid, so it was pretty neat to see how that could be applied to everyday life. I'm happy that I now know how to make my own fizzy bath soaks. It will save me money and allow me to be more sustainable. I am SO excited to give these bath soaks a try this weekend. Brian just cleaned the tub (my least favorite chore), so it's calling my name!
I am a huge fan of loose leaf tea. There is less waste and it always feels fresher. I knew that dandelion had a ton of health benefits like helping with liver detox and being high in vitamins in minerals. However, what I learned from the materials that came with my Homegrown Collective box that it's one of the top 6 herbs in the Chinese herbal medicine chest! Wow. I think I need to drink my dandelion tea more often! I normally feed them to the chickens, but I think I'll use some of our “weeds” for the family this year.
Bentonite Clay & Rosewater Mask
I am a huge fan of bentonite clay for first aid, but I haven't used it much for beauty products. It makes sense that it would make an awesome mask for detoxifying since it has properties that allow it to pull toxins out of the skin (which is why it's great for scrapes and bug bites). I didn't follow the directions exactly, and I added some of the rosewater directly to the mask mix and I loved it! The smell made the mask so relaxing and invigorating, and my skin felt so fresh afterwards! I'll have to mix up a mask every week.
Plenty of Extra Supplies
One of the things I love about The Homegrown Collective is that they include enough supplies to make many of the DIY projects over and over again. I have enough supplies to make each of these projects several more times, and enough to experiment with some other projects of my own. It's a great way to be able to reinforce the skills you learn each month through their subscription service!
