We buy organic /natural self care and home care products in our home and love the products we use however, recently I have noticed how much money I am spending on them.
I have decided that I would like to start making my own products to use on ourselves and our home. I am not interested in something that will take a lot of time to make, I need simple. I have looked around for a book that has recipes for such things and explains the basics of making these things but, I have not had any luck.
Can anyone recommend a book that offers recipes for home care and self care products like deoterant, soaps, toothpaste, cleaners, etc. that are easy to make and don't take a lot of ingredients? We use vinegar for a lot of cleaning but, I would like some more ideas.
so far here are some of my home made ingredients i'm trying (brand new to this this week!)
