Most of us make a trip to the grocery store or drugstore when we need personal care products. However, if you stop to consider the fact that most of the personal care products we buy in stores are derived from natural ingredients, a trip to the garden may be all we need. Here are some easy and economical personal care recipes right from the garden.
Note: Some recipes are not suitable for sensitive skin. Each person is different, so test on the inside arm or wrist for any possible allergic reactions before using these recipes.

My brother has lots of allergies.....and he loves to soak in the tub....Here is my special bath salts for him......
4 cups epsom salt....
1 cup instant milk...
1 cup bicarb of soda.....baking soda
You may put a cotton ball that has been exsposed to your favorite scent in the top of the bottle(put a few drops of scent into a sealed container and pack it with cotton balls, the cotton balls will take up the scent...this is a good way to use up those little things you find in magazines with trial scent on them.......I get empty liquor bottles from a friend who owns a bar....wash them out dry them for a couple days, and fill with this bath salt.....add a quarter to half a cup to bath....then fill tub..
