This Mom is going Green(er)!

Why? Because I spend waaay too much money on purchasing organic products when they can be easily made at home. Green is healthier for you, the environment and your pocket book!

If you are not an organic consumer - you may find some of these listed in your household product ingredients.

MIT (methylisothiazolinone)
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
DEA (diethanolamine)
Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate
Propylene Glycol
Tocopheryl Acetate

These are just some of the harmful chemicals that you will find in your shampoo and other beauty products.
With your skin being the largest organ - it is only soaking these nasties right up! These chemicals are known to cause cancer, birth defects, Alzheimers, rashes, dandruff, infections, blisters, hives, reduce fertility and cause hormone inbalances - just to name a few. ;)

So, feel free to join me in the upcoming weeks as we make all natural, organic household products such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, lotion, deodorant and cleaners. It will not only be easy (and most ingredients you will already have!)... but fun too! (And I guarantee you they will work!)

Stay tuned...
