6 Ways to Use Baking Soda

Baking soda is one of my favourite cleaning agents at home. It eliminates bad odours and cleans and it is also perfect in combination with my other favourite cleaning agent: vinegar. But did you know that this agent can also make you seem prettier and even a bit younger? It is a powerful and pure product that also has medicinal properties. Want to know what they are?

1. Stops excessive perspiration and absorbs bad odours.
Baking soda is the perfect replacement for deodorant and you can make it yourself easily. The agent makes sure your armpits will stay dry and fresh for hours. The only thing you have to do is mix a few drops of essential oil (with your favourite fragrant) with four tablespoons of baking soda and apply this to your armpits.

Do you love to take a bath? Then I have found another nice option for you: add a small cup of baking soda to the bath and stay in the bath for at least 30 minutes. The salt will make sure that bad odours are neutralised and oily skin is defatted.

2. Soft skin.
Do you want your entire body to become softer? Go through the ‘bathing process’ described above once or twice a week. Do you only want your hands and/or feet to become softer? Do the following: Mix a small amount of baking soda with water and shower gel and massage your hands and/or feet with it. The mixture will hydrate and soften your skin! The last step: rinse it off!

3. Healthy nails.
Mix 3 parts of baking soda with 1 part of water and apply to your nails to make them look healthier. Do not forget to rinse it off.

4. Freshens breath.
Add a tablespoon of baking soda to a glass of water and mix until the baking soda has been fully absorbed. Take the mixture into your mouth and rinse! Baking soda will kill off bacteria so bad breath will disappear and mouth and throat will be disinfected. Easy, and cheaper than the mouth water you buy in the shops.

5. Keeps your hair clean and healthy.
Shampoo you buy at the pharmacy is full of harmful chemicals that create imbalance in your scalp and hair. Use baking soda once a month and your hair will become stronger than ever before!

6. Whiten your teeth.
Did you know that nearly every tube of toothpaste contains baking soda? If you mix salt with hydrogen peroxide and put this on your teeth, your teeth will get whiter! Use it once a week so you won’t harm your teeth!
