Here are our latest faves, DIY style!

BEAUTY: Raw Cacao Facemask. Bennett, our chocolate-makin' master, recently experimented with this super easy DIY cacao mask recipe and we love it! All you’ll need is 2 tablespoons of raw cacao, 1 tablespoon of raw honey, 1 ½ tablespoons of organic coconut oil. Combine all three ingredients into a paste consistency. Apply to skin with fingertips and let dry for 15-20 minutes. Remove with warm water and apply a toner and moisturizer. Just another way to reap the benefits of our favorite superfood, raw cacao!

HEALTH: All-natural Bug Repellant. In the Northeast, we’re celebrating the full bloom of the spring season. But we know too well that the change of the season means the revival of our pesky nemesis, the mosquito, and with it the threat of disease (not to mention the swatting and scratching). Most commercial bug sprays contain chemicals that are bad for you and the environment. We prefer this easy all-natural DIY alternative!

HOME: All-purpose Home Cleaner. This three ingredient cleaner can be used for just about anything in the household. Simply combine 2 cups of water, 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide, and ¼ cup of lemon juice in a spray bottle and get cleanin’! The key ingredient here is hydrogen peroxide, which is inexpensive and non-toxic. It’s odorless, cleans better than vinegar, and is safe for the environment unlike bleach cleaners. The lemon acid fights grime and smells lovely!

DECOR: Homemade Wall Art. A pinterest search for DIY wall art turns up HUNDREDS of ideas for creating your own inexpensive and beautiful original art. We love these because of their ease to make and their rustic organic feel! (1, 2, 3, & 4)
