9 DIY Recipes You Need In Your Shower ASAP

by Bri Kane

You are a green goddess, as everyone knows, and you want to avoid makeup that is tested on bunnies or filled with chemicals that belong in a landfill. Making your own shampoo/conditioner can be intimidating (what’s even in shampoo?), but it is so much easier than you thought. BUST has scoured the interwebz on your behalf to find all the easiest, fastest and cleanest DIY recipes for all the products you already have on your sink counter:

1) Lavender & Rosemary Shampoo 


This buddy from Premeditated Leftovers might have a different texture than you’re used to, but it smells so great you won’t even care. Find it here!

2) Rosemary Mint Hair Conditioner


Premeditated Leftovers does it again with this conditioner. Not only is this conditioner super easy to make, but the website shows you exactly why you want to use all the ingredients listed — dandruff can GTFO! You know you can’t wait to make it.

3) Orange Honey Body Wash


Fitnessista has such an easy recipe for this body wash — shake and shower! Full recipe here.

4) Eucalyptus Shaving Cream


The Garlic Diaries has a great shaving cream that involves no garlic, just everything else you love. This product might not have the texture you’re used to but it makes your skin dolphin smooth to a whole new level! Find it here.

5) Antiperspirant


This awesome deodorant, by Pronounce Skin Care, is a little more complicated to make and looks weird as all get out, but it works wonders on your smelly pits. Hurry up and get the recipe.
