Baking Soda is a very versatile product that can be used for baking, cleaning and DIY projects. Here are three of our favorite ways to use baking soda. Each can be presented as a gift to your friends and family.

Shower steamers with baking soda and cornstarch

Shower Steamers:


1 1/4 cup of Always Save baking soda

1 tablespoon of Always Save cornstarch

2/3 cup of water

3-4 drops of your favorite essential oils (we used Lavender/Peppermint


A muffin tin

12 muffin liners

Prepare your muffin tin with 12 muffin liners.

Mix your baking soda and cornstarch with water until you have a thick paste. Slowly add the water as you might need more to create the thick paste.

Pour the paste until your muffin tin is about 1/4 full.

Place these in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow them to cool and add essential oils.

Share with your friends as gifts or just enjoy in the shower.

Fridge Refreshers

1 1/4 cups Always Save baking soda

1/4- 1/2 cup water

8 drops of your favorite essential oil

Create a paste with the three ingredients in a bowl. Add to a silicone mold and allow it to dry for 2-3 days until completely hard. Remove from the mold and place it in your refrigerator.

Natural Deodorant Bars

4-5 TBSP Always Save Cornstarch

2-4 TBSP Always Save Baking Soda

Meltdown your Shea or cocoa butter over a double boiler.  Once your butter has melted add in your other ingredients.  Stir occasionally with a craft stick or coffee stick. Add your mixture to the mold and let cool. You can place it in the fridge to speed up the cooling process.
