Why Should You Make Your Own Aspirin Mask?
In the past, I used to use commercial products. But now, I rarely buy a product from market. I use natural ingredients to make my own skin care and hair care products. Well, you might ask how did all this start? Of course, there is a reason behind it.
One day when I was out there shopping, I noticed one thing. I was constantly reading labels of every product I want to buy. And this was consuming my time. Normally, it would only take 10 minutes to shop. But with all these label reading, my shopping ritual went as high as 2 hours. And I wasn’t even buying some of these products.
When I read the labels, there were tons of harmful chemicals like paraben and other stuff. I don’t want my skin to absorb those chemicals. So, I decided to take a different journey and do my own cosmetics.

Otherwise, you should avoid using essential oil.
