Hand SanitizerMany bacteria are carried on surfaces that we touch. Hand sanitizer is a well recommended kind of cleanser, and if it’ natural, it’s even better! Many soaps on the market have too many chemicals to be healthy for your skin. So, the natural path, is always the better path to take. Here’s a “solution” that you might like to consider, if you want to be as free from toxic chemicals as possible. I think plants, and natural remedies, supply all that we need for healthy living. The question is merely finding those solutions. That’s what we do, we find the answers to problems that confront us in this day and age, and toxic chemicals are an issue, so here’s your answer. This is how to make a natural hand sanitizer!

Cinnamon CakeDoes this look good or what! So good you can taste it huh? Yummy. Well here’s a recipe that is just in time for the holidays. We use a lot of cinnamon for the holidays, and apparently cinnamon is suppose to be really good for you too. What a great holiday treat as a gift for friends and family, instead of a fruitcake, although I do love fruitcake too! I saw this picture and I said, I HAVE to make that. So spread some holiday cheer with cinnamon cake muffins!

stovetop-potpourriOh wow, I never thought about this one, but it makes sense doesn’t it. If your cooking dinner, you can smell the food cooking right? So, stovetop potpourri is such an obvious alternative to the store bought, chemical ridden potpourri. This is an all natural “aroma therapy”. It’s easy to make, and a lot cheaper to what you can buy in stores. What a great idea! I think I’m going to make some right now!

bridesmaid gift ideasA bubble bath is such a treat! Oooo, what about scented bubble bath? Someone get to work on that! Really all that you would need is to add some kind of scent to this little formula we bring to you here. Bubble bath just says luxury, why else would you use it? It’s true, it just feels good, but when you’re soaking in bubbles, it just feels so self indulgent, doesn’t it? So keep yourself well supplied by making your own!

homemade-citrus-bath-saltsBath salts are always good, especially when it’s citrus! Citrus is refreshing and fresh smelling. What a self indulgent thing to do, that is, bath salts, but it’s so nice right?! It good for you too, because it relieves stress. I don’t know why salt relieves stress but it does, might as well smell nice too. You might even try to change the fragrance in the recipe to your favorite aroma! So just relax with your own homemade bath salts, and when you run out, just make some more. Enjoy!

Lavender-Hand-CreamI really enjoy the smell of lavender, most people do. I don’t like store bought hand cream, so this is perfect. I imagine that if you changed the aroma producing element in the formula, that you can make several types of hand creams! You got to love it though right, homemade lavender hand cream. I really appreciate all these clever people that come up with these awesome products for the general public, don’t you!
