My journey to lightening up my cleaning products and skin care has been over the course of many years. It started back when I met Dave and moved in with him. I had never had my own home before, and I became more interested in my health. That snowballed in to reading lots of books about hormone disruptors in our daily lives. One of my favorites is Jillian Michael’s book Master Your Metabolism.
I didn’t realize it, but deep down I knew we were going to start a family and I didn’t want anything disrupting my hormones for pregnancy, or anything that could potentially harm my child once they were here. Little did I know that we would struggle with miscarriages and this would become even more important to me in the following years.
Gradually I transitioned to more all natural, homemade alternatives for my cleaning products and skin care. I had fun researching new recipes, and testing them out. As I trialed, I also compiled all of the recipes into a handy little book, and now I’m sharing it with you!
