Healthy Household: Staying Clean Safely

infusion-area

This is where I do my infusions. It would be better to have a dark cupboard but I like watching the process. I have a book where I keep records of successful recipes. Remember to always label your medicines.

Over the next few months, I am going to put together a group of posts called the Healthy Household. These posts will go over how to make simple household cosmetics and cleaners. It is my hope that this series will help people become more interested in the ingredients of the cosmetics and household cleaners they presently use.

One good source of information about our cosmetics is the Environmental Worker?s Group. This website will give you some information about the safety of your cosmetics. Be warned, this website can be alarming. I remember the first time I looked up my favorite shampoo and was shocked at it?s level of hazard. I thought I was using a good product!

The quality of homemade products will be far superior to any products produced by the Cosmetics Industry. Making your own cosmetics and household cleaners is very satisfying. The ingredients we use are safe enough for children to help in making the products. These recipes will also save money. Lots of money. Some of the cosmetics that will be covered are how to make your own tooth powders, salves, creams, lotions, shampoo, hair wash, and soap. There will be simple, traditional recipes for homemade syrups, vinegars, tonics and extracts. There will be easy household cleaners, dish detergent and laundry soap made from ingredients that will leave your house smelling fresh, safely.

If you find these recipes fire your interest to learn more, please see herbmentor.com.
