Lately I have been increasingly skeptical of all of the chemicals that we come into contact with. Our cleaning products, our soap, our toothpaste, diapers, wipes, toys... you name it... they all have chemicals in them. A few months ago I made the switch to making my own cleaning products (Thank you Pinterest) and have been very happy with the results. I have one product that multitasks as an all purpose cleaner, and even a carpet cleaner. I also use baking soda, vinegar, or peroxide to rid our clothes of stains. I have decided that I would like to take a more natural approach to my beauty routine as well.
If Brad is reading this, he is going to think I have gone on some crazy hippy kick again like I did when I switched to cloth diapers. Confession, Archer's butt has never come into contact with a cloth diaper. I know that I should get back in to using them, but being a working mom, I totally understand why disposables were invented... I digress...
I am giving up face wash, shampoo & conditioner. Yes, you read that right. I have been reading a lot about using olive oil as a natural skin cleanser. You can read about it here It apparently makes a great face wash. Also a combination of baking soda and water is said to make a great shampoo. You can read about that here I plan on trying both, and then I will get back to you with progress or results. Has anyone else done either of these things? Am I crazy?
Do you have any natural remedies you like to use around the house? Please share!
