I don’t wear makeup. I started using only organic shampoo a couple years ago. I make my own conditioner. I avoid flour and sugar that has been bleached. I use unbleached coffee filters. Our bodies are so inundated with unhealthy chemicals from our surroundings and products on a daily basis. It just makes sense to me that as part of our homesteading life, we strive to return to a more natural way of caring for our bodies. Thanks to Alaska’s extremely low-humidity winters, I go through lotion like crazy, I just want a safe healthy lotion to use too.
