What if I told you that 25% of people are exposed to 168 chemicals on a daily basis.

Here's how you can eliminate them from the products you and your family use every day. 

Make your own natural products at home.

Know exactly what's in the products you and your family use. 

Never rely on a large corporation or the store again

Hand Made the Modern Guide to Made-from-Scratch Living and the Hand Made Masterclass shine the light on:

  • How commercial products have stripped soaps and lotions of their skin nourishing properties, causing you to use more and instead shows you how to make them at home with natural skin loving benefits. 
  • Easy recipes that take less than 60 minutes to make... half the price as store bought items... and uses herbs and natural oils to create your own soaps, balms, salves, creams and candles.
  • Countdown planner and ingredient guide so you can have all your gifts made and ready, without fighting traffic, standing in lines, or wasting time

Problem is, huge companies aren't always looking out for our best interest or health and their products show it.

Whatever happened to the art of hand crafted and satisfaction creating items that nourish the body and home?

Give me 30 minutes and you'll never have to buy lip balms, soap, or body creams again

 You've wanted to make your own products and may have tried a few things, but you're a little bit intimidated by all that's involved. You don't want to waste time or ingredients.

But you don't want to keep using the store bought processed filled stuff, but you don't have time for complicated.

No worries, anyone can learn how to make their own handcrafted items to create a nourishing wholesome home using simple recipes and ingredients. That means you, my friend. Yes, you!

Once you learn how satisfying it is to make it yourself, you'll be hooked!

  • Save money. Making your own homemade products is usually much cheaper than purchasing it from the store and of better quality. Not to mention you're not wasting time in traffic or checkout lines, score!
  • Better for the environment. Instead of wasting ingredients and preservatives, you can minimize the amount of resources that are used, which is a big relief to the environment!
  • Reduce your chemical load exposure. It seems synthetic ingredients are in everything nowadays: cleaners, food, air fresheners, even our clothing. It's estimated that 25% of women are exposed to 168 chemicals daily. We can reduce our exposure and help give our bodies a break from the constant exposure.
  • Better taste/performance. Sometimes, the store-bought version can’t even compare to the homemade one.

I started making almost everything at home and from scratch over 8 years ago - after a cancer scare, I knew the only way to reclaim my health was to cut out all the processed chemicals and ingredients in the store bought products we were using.

The only way I could avoid ingredients I didn't want and to afford it, was to make it myself. I credit this to the healing of my stomach and the building of a natural home and medicine cabinet.

Homemade Natural Items that Really Work

At first I was skeptical if the items and things I made at home would work as well as the store bought items. I mean, after all, wasn't that the reason people started buying from the store in the first place? And if these natural ingredients worked, why wouldn't the big companies use them to begin with?

Plus, what if I put in the time and the ingredients and it didn't turn out? None of us have time or money to waste.

Well, not only did they work, but for our family, they've worked better than the store bought items. Plus, I share the troubleshooting tips I've learned along the way so you can skip the learning curve.

Imagine if
Your lip balm and lip stick was infused with herbs that helped nourished your skin. If you wanted some color, you could customize it easily for the exact shade that complimented your skin. What if it actually moisturized and stayed on for long periods of time due to beeswax, not petroleum?

Imagine if

Your soaps didn't have all of the glycerin stripped from them? They didn't leave a film on your skin and weren't filled with synthetic fragrances and dyes or fillers. Instead, they used natural plant matter, were filled with nourishing oils, and used essential oils for your favorite scent combinations.

It becomes much easier to fill your home with good for you nourishing items when you know the exact ingredients that go into your products and how to do it yourself.

This is why I've taken all of the recipes and tutorials I've been using in our home, and created easy to follow tutorials, recipes, check lists, and guides so you can do the very same.

You'll have proven recipes and  methods
all in one place so you can :  

  • angle-right
    Make nourishing soap with natural colorants and scents.                       Knowing how to make your own soap was something almost every  home of old knew how to do and did often. This is quickly becoming a lost art, not only are we in danger of losing knowledge, but we're sacrificing it for an inferior product. Start with melt and pour to gain confidence (no dealing with lye) or jump into making it all from scratch with safety tips in our cold process soap masterclass.  
  • angle-right
     Create herb based body butters, lip balms and moisturizers.
    Many of today's lotions and moisturizers are packed full of preservatives, synthetic fragrances and dyes and use water as their first ingredient. While water is great for us internally, as a moisturize on the skin, it doesn't do the job. Create your own with herbal and essential oils based moisturizers with ease.
  • angle-right
    Your Own Beeswax Mason Jar Candles.
    Candle making used to be a yearly activity in the pioneer homes. Not only did they need a way to create their own light come fall and winter, but they used common items they could create or grow on their land. Instead of burning synthetic fragrances and candles with questionable ingredients, create your own natural candle, perfect for dim days, power outages, and scenting your home with the smell of warm honey. 
  • angle-right
    Handmade gifts people will use and want.                                                                These are items we use every day in our homes or on our bodies. Instead of buying something just for the sake of having something to give, craft something that will nourish those who receive it. Let's take back the holiday season with gifts from our hearts and hands.  
  • angle-right
     Spend time with your loved ones while learning.

About the Author

I’m just a plain country girl who loves Jesus, playing in the dirt, stuffing food into Mason jars (after I wash my hands of course), and hunting down as many traditional old-fashioned skills as I can to put into use on our homestead. I believe simple is better and everything just tastes and looks better in a Mason jar.
