Personal Products

I’ve been thinking more and more lately about personal products. What is in that lotion that I’ve slathered on every day for the last 10 years? How much has been absorbed into my body? Would I eat it (heck no)? How long will it take that shampoo to biodegrade? You get the picture. I’m also trying to reduce reliance on commercial items like cleaning products.  I’ve switched to mostly natural products (except for those few items I have in large supply), but it can be a pricey endeavor. Today, I am excited, because I got this post in an email. I’m going to look into it a little more, and then hopefully try it.  How have we gotten so far that we don’t even realize that certain things are possible to make at home?

I also can’t wait to read some on that blog. We’re getting excited about our upcoming garden, so I’m sure it will be helpful.
