Natural Living

Definitely save this for later! The mother-load of DIY natural recipes and tutorials.

I’m always amazed at the energy and dedication people will give to choosing all natural real food and getting plenty of exercise. But there is one other factor in health living: Making sure we are keeping our body free from toxic garbage. This is why I believe in diy natural care products and living.

Most cleaning and personal care products are full of harmful chemicals. Our skin is the largest organ of our body. What we put on our body is just as important as what we put in it. Why? Because what we put on it eventually gets in. (Learn more about hidden toxins in your home.)

Thankfully, these all natural care products are easy to make, frugal, and very versatile. You don’t need a lot of crafty skills for these diy projects, and most of the stuff you need you can find easily at your local health food store or online.  Before you get started, make sure you know how to keep your homemade beauty products safe. Below are my favorite recipes, tips, and articles on natural living.  You can also check out all the posts listed under this category here.
