I’m sure you’re all familiar with that little orange box in your fridge, freezer or baking cupboard. Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda has been helping generations of Canadian families cook and clean for decades.
Over the years, the team at Arm & Hammer – with the help of their loyal fans – have come up with more than 100 uses for baking soda! Today I am sharing 5 of my favourite beauty solutions that feature Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda:
Arm & Hammer Baking Soda Beauty Solutions:
1.. Reset your pH Levels Once a week, fill a bathtub with hot water. Add a handful of Epson salts, 10 drops of your favourite essential oil (I like soothing ones like lavender or citrus) and 1/2 cup of Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda. Relax for 20 minutes. This will draw out toxins, lower stress hormones and balance your pH. (Source: Happiest Woman)
2.. Brighter teeth Mix 2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted), 1 tablespoon Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda and 5 drops of peppermint essential oils. Cover toothbrush with mixture (as you would with toothpaste) and brush teeth. This mixture can be used in place of toothpaste. Within 1 week you will notice brighter teeth (Source: My Mom)
3.. Remove Dark Spots on your Face Add 3 tablespoons of Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda in 1 tablespoon of warm water to make it a fine paste. Apply to the dark areas on your face and massage in with a circular motion. Risen with warm water and dry face. Repeat 2-3x a week. For a more intense treatment, add 1 teaspoon of Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda in 1/4 cup of water. Mix well and apply generously to dark spots. Leave over night and rinse it off in the morning.

4.. Shiny, Cleaner Hair Forget fancy shampoos, use Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda for a thorough clean! Mix 1 part baking soda with 3 parts water. Apply the baking soda mixture to wet hair by gentle massaging it in from roots to tips. Let it sit for 1 – 3 minutes then rinse with warm water. Next mix up 1 part white or apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water. To make it smell nice add your favourite essential oil (peppermint, rosemary, lavender etc.). When pouring solution on hair, be careful not to get in your eyes! Rinse with cold water helps to seal in moisture, smooth the hair, and add shine! (Source: MindBodyGreen)
5.. Strengthen your nails Tired of your nails breaking and looking dull and yellow? Try soaking them in warm water and Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda for 10 minutes once a week. Finish off your hand treatment by massaging warm olive oil into your cuticles and coating them with Vitamin E. (Source: BeScented)
