If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would educate people about the harmful chemicals, pesticides, and harsh detergents in their everyday store bought products.
I take pride in making my own “home remedy” products ranging from Windex and laundry detergent to shampoo and conditioner, and anything in between. I started doing so when I decided that I was going to go “all natural” with my hair. Once I started reading up on it, I started finding a lot of other “natural” alternatives to common products. That lead to me wondering why people made their own, and reading up on the toxicity of the products we use in our homes that we have no idea are affecting us.
To achieve this goal, I would start off by just talking to anyone who would listen, maybe start a blog, and eventually move on to a speaking role where ever I could get mothers and young women to listen.
This is important to me because we as a society trust that what we buy from a store is okay for us and in fact that is often times the very opposite of what is happening. Simple everyday products such as Clorox wipes, read on the back in fine print that they are harmful to humans and domestic animals. Yet we use them in our house because our busy lifestyles don’t allow us to stop and read the labels on everything we purchase.
