Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate is often used in homemade baked goods. People also use it as a polishing agent, deep cleaning and deodorizing agent for household use. This amazing ingredient can replace many household cleaners that contain too many toxic and chemical compounds in them.

This amazing ingredient is also used as a cosmetic product. People use it to white their teeth with it or as a deodorant. It’s a natural beauty product, also very effective in treating acne. Usually, when the pH value in the human body is imbalanced, it can cause skin breakouts, and being an amphoretic compound, baking soda can be used to correct the skin’s pH balance. This is why you can use baking soda as an aid in healing breakouts.
The other, also super healthy, ingredient has antibacterial, healing and moisturizing properties. This healthy ingredient can moisturize, nourish and sooth the skin blemishes. The coconut oil is much gentler and safer product than baking soda. When these 2 ingredients are mixed together, the coconut oil balances out baking soda’s harshness, making it safe for even the most sensitive skin. There are many different types of coconut oil, but it’s highly recommended for you to use wet-milled traditional coconut oil. This type of coconut oil has showed the best results.
