(Natural Living) You might be realizing that most of the products out there that aren’t made organically or naturally contain a lot of toxic chemicals. Not only that, many of these products can be harmful to our environment in a number of ways.
Making things yourself not only saves you money and helps the environment, but it lets you know where your products are coming from and exactly what’s in it.
You can make anything from food items to personal care and cleaning products all in very simple ways.
Remember: whenever you can, use organic foods and ingredients in recipes. Use sea salt instead of table salt. Use healthy oils like coconut oil. Use raw cane sugar or honey as sweetener instead of refined white sugar. Choosing the cleanest ingredients is the best choice for your mind and body.
