9. Whipped Shea Butter Brown Sugar Scrub from Holly at Southern Mom Loves
This is a recipe for a whipped scrub using Shea Butter. It goes on smoothly, exfoliates, and heavily moisturizes, so this is a good recipe for extremely dry skin, eczema, or psoriasis problems. It's whipped texture belies its balm-y nature, and helps the mixture spread more easily, while the brown sugar is a gentle exfoliator to help remove dry, dead skin. Use it in the shower for great results. It's easy to make and all you need are four ingredients and a hand mixer.

I've seen scrubs everywhere, often for exorbitant amounts for exotic sugars or salts. Well, you can make this yourself, and probably with things you already have in the kitchen. This homemade sugar scrub recipe is super-simple, requires no special tools, and would make a great holiday gift for anyone who needs some TLC for their hands.

12. Homemade Lotion from Dina at My Unentitled Life
I’ve been on this path to becoming more self sufficient. I love that just a little research will bring you all kinds of new recipes and ideas. The latest one I made for myself about 3 weeks ago and have been using it daily ever since: I made my own lotion. It was so simple and you can do it too!
