3. Baking Soda
Baking soda, which you probably have on hand for baking, is also very exfoliating. Baking soda can be used to make your own toothpaste to whiten teeth. You can also use it to freshen fabrics and other materials. If you have a stinky yoga mat, try filling your bathtub with water, mixing in baking soda and soaking the mat for up to an hour.
4. Essential Oils
Keeping essential oils like lemon and tea tree on hand means you can create many different products from a very tiny bottle of oil. Use lemon oil to make household cleaners and the tea tree oil as a topical acne treatment. You can also add essential oils to shampoo, conditioner or body wash for aromatherapy benefits.
5. Raw Honey
In addition to tasting delicious, raw honey also has antioxidant properties. Add it to tea to treat a cough or sore throat. You can also use raw honey as a balm for treating minor burns on the skin due to its antibiotic and analgesic properties.
