Although I’ve become a pro at reading labels for all of my beauty products at the store (to avoid icky, toxic and animal-derived ingredients), nothing beats the satisfaction I get from making my own natural, vegan, and cruelty-free skin and hair care goodies from scratch. This particular recipe is one of my all-time faves:

Homemade Vegan Shampoo

  • 1 cup of pure liquid castile soap
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1.5 tablespoons of olive oil or jojoba oil
  • 5 drops of your favorite essential oil (I like to use peppermint oil)

Mix all the ingredients together. Then grab an empty shampoo bottle (yahoooo for recycling!), and pour your DIY concoction in there. Don’t let the liquid consistency freak you out. This shampoo is super lathery, sudsy and wunderbar!


Just keepin’ it real,
