    I haven’t updated Chemical Free in 2016 in a long time and wanted to check in with some awesome product swaps I’ve made!

    I recently discovered Grove Collaborative and I’m obsessed! They ship you chemical free and all-natural home and beauty products every month! And the prices are great! One thing that holds me back from buying the all natural alternative (I usually make my own), is that they can be much more expensive. But with Grove, I was really, really surprised! My order only came to about $25 (with shipping!) and I got 7 products! Here’s what I got this month:

    Essential Oil Spotlight- All About Lavender

    Today I’m talking about an oil everyone should have in their house- Lavender. Even if you’re not into essential oils, you should definitely have some lavender in your house. If there is one and only oil you buy in your whole life- it should be lavender.

    Lavender is a gentle oil so it’s one of the very few that doesn’t have to be diluted- unless you have extremely sensitive skin. I usually dilute it when I use it on Sawyer, just to be safe. You can never be too careful when using essential oils and want to make sure you are properly educated in using them correctly. Here are some of the amazing uses for lavender.

    Chemical Free in 2016- Household Cleaners

    Hello all!

    Today, we’re continuing our Chemical Free in 2016 series, by replacing our household cleaners! Newsflash: You’re household cleaners are toxic! Some of them could literally kill you if accidentally ingested, and the fumes are often harmful. Why are we all so okay with keeping products like this in our homes?

    For me, it’s simply convenience. I though that buying cleaners at the store would be much easier than making my own.

    But I was so wrong.

    Making my own cleaners literally took minutes. And included items I already had in my pantry, so I didn’t even need to pick anything up at the store! And, it saves so much money. Today, I will be sharing two cleaners with you; All-Purpose, and Glass cleaners. I’ll save some other cleaners such as bathroom cleaner and wood polisher for a separate post.
