It removes grime and rings from around the bathtub, and even brightens tile!

It can be used for many bath and body products like lotions, creams, shampoos, bath salts, bath bombs, and gels.

It is also the state flower of New York, North Dakota, Georgia, Iowa, and the District of Columbia. Did you know that in ancient Egypt, roses were used as offerings to the goddess Isis because they were considered the most sacred flower? And in ancient Rome and Greece, they were associated with the goddess of love?

Many bath and body products can contain roses. There are many skin care benefits when using them in bath and body products. Rose oil has many anti-bacterial properties. It also helps to treat acne, soften skin, and hydrate and moisturize skin. It also helps to fight skin diseases, regenerate cells, restore skin texture, and fights inflammation.

The oil also adds shine to the hair, prevents hair loss, promotes hair growth, and can improve blood circulation in the scalp. Rose water can even be used as a natural hair spray! For all the soapers and candle makers out there, rose petals make a beautiful natural decoration to your creations. And when used as an actual ingredient in soap, it is great for softening the skin.

There are countless medicinal benefits to roses as well! When rose oil is used in a compress, it helps to treat puffiness of the eyes, and also treats inflamed and tired eyes. When combined with Melissa oil, rose oil is awesome for treating herpes sores. The fruit that grows on rose plants, rose hips, is very high in vitamin C. The rose hips help to treat high blood pressure, lower cholesterol, chest pains, fevers, and they can even be used as a kidney tonic. Rose oil is also used to help with panic attacks.

Cloth diapers can be cleaned with a mixture of baking soda and water. It can remove grease stains and oils, clean cars, corroded batteries, ovens, microwaves, vinyl shower curtains, and it can even remove marks on walls. Baking soda also has deodorizing qualities! It can be used as a replacement for deodorant, deodorize pet bedding, cars, closets, refrigerators, shoes, cutting boards, dishwashers, garbage disposals, trash cans and even stuffed animals just to name a few.

There are many medicinal benefits to baking soda as well! It can help slow kidney failure and there is a theory that it can be used to fight cancer. It is also used to treat indigestion and heartburn, it can also be used when removing splinters and for allergic reactions to poison ivy, sumac, and oak. For oral health, baking soda is used as an ingredient in toothpastes to help remove plaque from the teeth. Soaking your feet in baking soda can treat foot fungus and odors. Athletes also can use baking soda to keep them from getting tired during a game and it helps to enhance their performance.

Those are just a few of the many ways to use baking soda! Aren’t you just dying to try some of them out now?
