Save Money. Save Time.
Protect Yourself and the Environment.
I know that your time is as valuable as your money. That's why our recipes are inexpensive, fast, and simple to create while standing up to national branded natural products.
Save money. Approximately 75% - 90% when compared to similar natural retail products.
Save time. Creating your own products is fast and easy! Most recipes take between one and two minutes to create without compromising effectiveness or quality.
Help protect yourself, your family and the environment. Our skin is the largest organ of the body and everything that we put on it becomes absorbed into our bloodstream. Even the products that we use in the shower vaporize with heat and steam, entering our bodies through our breath. Household cleansing products are also easily absorbed into the bloodstream simply through inhalation as well as with skin contact.
According to studies, what we put on our skin takes approximately 15 minutes to absorb into our bloodstream. Studies also indicate that many body care products and household cleaners may contain carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) among other toxic chemicals. These chemicals may contribute to a variety of adverse health conditions including asthma, respiratory problems, cancer and more.
"The Story of Cosmetics" indicates that the average woman uses 12 personal care products daily, men 6, with each having 12 or more chemicals that are potentially hazardous to our health.
"Despite marketing claims on children's products such as 'gentle' and 'pure,' dozens of top-selling children’s bath products are contaminated with potentially carcinogenic (cancer-causing) chemicals.... Babies may be exposed to several products at bath time, several times a week, in addition to other chemical exposures in the home and environment. Those small exposures add up and may contribute to later-life disease." (March 2009 Campaign for Safe Cosmetics report, "No More Toxic Tub.")
By creating our own effective products we are empowered to take more control over our health, our time, our money and the environment. During the current economic climate and the fast pace of life, who can't afford to save time and money?
We do so much to ensure the safety and well-being of our families. It makes sense to take this simple and inexpensive step toward healthier living. Small changes can add up to a huge impact not only on your body but on the planet and the well-being of others!
The bonus: You can reduce your carbon footprint when you bypass the manufacturing process, eliminate the use of synthetics and reduce packaging. Whether using fair trade, organic, or conventional ingredients you have more control over your D-I-Y product sourcing, labor rights, human rights, social and environmental concerns.
