If you’re making the push towards a more natural lifestyle, you may be interested to know that you can make so many of the daily items you need right in your kitchen.  Take one day a month and spend it making household cleaners, superfood chocolates, face cream, shaving soap and what ever other products you use on a daily basis.

I am here to share various recipes and ideas for you to become more self sustainable in these very strange Covid times.  As a bonus you'll know exactly what you are using in your home -- and you'll save a little money too!


Let's start with the Cleaners...

Commercial cleansers are often laden with chemical additives that can be detrimental to your family’s health. Non-toxic natural cleaning solutions are easy to make, store, and they clean just as well as commercial cleansers.

The best part is, you only need a few ingredients for each recipe.


Before I get into the specific recipes, though, let me just say this: white vinegar and baking soda clean Just. About. Everything. You’ll see it’s the main combination in a bunch of the recipes below, but there are heaps of other things it can clean, too!
