here is a list of what you MUST have in your home in order to make your own recipes and to live without chemicals.
-Bicarbonate of soda (american: baking soda)
You can make almost anything with just these 3 ingredients and WATER (such as; shampoo, soap, toothpaste, deodorant, hair conditioner, cloth de-stainer, kitchen and bathroom cleaning products)
GREAT TO HAVE AS WELL (affordable extras if you can make the effort)
|My Lab/shelf ... hehe|
-essential oils (at least TEA TREE)
-all herbs and spices
-pure cocoa powder
(with these ingredients you can enhance your hair conditioner and cleaning products as well as make some dry shampoo, natural make-up and hair dyes)
AWESOME EXTRAS (if you can afford them!)
-black seeds (other names: nigella sativa and kalunji)
-black seed oil
-shea butter and/or cocoa butter (I love shea butter)
-clay (bentonite or rassoul)
(with these ingredients, you can make immune-system boost drinks, moisturisers, face and hair masks and enhance your oral health.)
Can you think of any others we can add to the list?
