So lately I have been leaning toward all natural foods and making my own cleaning supplies, shampoos, detergents, and even lotions! I already posted my coconut oil lotion recipe on here, and that one I still use to this day, especially on my tummy to save me from those nasty pregnancy stretch marks (one can hope, right?).
With my son being born within the next 3 1/2 months, it makes me realize that our world has some NASTY stuff in our foods and health and beauty products. The amount of GMO’s and “icky” stuff in our foods today is shocking, like the use of pesticides, preservatives and artificial flavorings. I don’t want that in my system, and I certainly don’t believe that my son should be exposed to these products either, whether it be through me during my pregnancy or after he’s born.
With that in mind, I am beginning my search for all sorts of home DIY stuff. Soaps, candles, lotions, detergents, cleaners, etc. My hubby has extremely sensitive skin and can’t use soaps with glycerin or anything like that, so my first big task is to create a soap that doesn’t irritate his skin. I too have sensitive skin, but not quite to that extreme. I do anticipate our son to have sensitive skin too because of that though. I will be posting my findings here to share with any of you that read or follow my blog. And for those of you who do..thank you! I truly appreciate it. I realize I may not update every day, but that’s mainly due to my pregnancy brain right now. I forget even the simplest things! So bear with me, and hopefully I can share with you some wonderful and safe DIY recipes for the whole family.
