Practical Pampering With Baking Soda

by in Featured, Product Review

I don’t spend as much time on myself as I should so when I was offered the opportunity to talk about baking soda’s benefits to pamper yourself and some ways that you can do it at home I jumped at the chance.

I love the spa, but am too practical to make it a habit so some of the tips that baking soda offered me were welcomed.

For my review I was sent a nice gift basket that included a designer shaker of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda along with how-to’s to recreate your spa treatments at home; an aromatherapy candle, organic tea bags and a tea cup to create a spa experience; a nail kit, nail polish, organic body lotion and lavender oil for a manicure/pedicure; and a terrycloth hair wrap and organic wash cloth for a facial.

Finding a couple minutes to myself is always a challenge so Arm & Hammer’s quick tips were really nice.

For my face, I just simply made a paste with 1 pt water and 3pts baking soda and used it to exfoliate before bed.

For my feet, I exfoliated them and then soaked them in warm water with a couple teaspoons of baking soda.  Moisturizer and some comfy socks finished the quick treatment to give my feet new life.

Arm & Hammer also suggests that baking soda mixed with your shampoo can help remove residue left behind by styling products, a little on your toothbrush can brighten your teeth and a 3:1  baking soda to liquid hand soap mixture can be used to neutralize on your hands to neutralize odors.

In addition to using baking soda on my skin, I use it around the house to clean with and on our laundry.  It’s funny that it’s real use – to bake with – is the last thing I actually use it for.  Instead, I have a container in the fridge to prevent foods from crossing flavouring each other, a container in the bathroom for me and another in the laundry room to get stains out of the boy’s clothes.

For just a couple dollars a box, Arm & Hammer’s baking soda offers a wealth of reasonable priced pick-me-ups for the financially responsible mom.
