Excerpt from Chapter 1
The Benefits of Natural Cleaning
You can believe me when I tell you that using a natural herbal products instead of a chemical-laden commercial one makes household tasks almost a pleasure to tackle. I know it's hard to get excited about cleaning a bathroom but when you realize that the surfaces are germ and toxin free and the soothing aroma of cedar or lavender lingers you won't be able to suppress a smile of satisfaction. And the enthusiasm is contagious - even the kids will want to pitch in!

Save Time and Money
Making your own herbal cleaning products is not a time-consuming or expensive endeavor. In fact quite the opposite is true. It only takes a minute or two to fill a spray bottle with vinegar and water and add a few drops of essential oil. Bingo - instant glass and appliance cleaner! Having done that there's one less aisle to visit in the supermarket.
The majority of commercial cleaners are quite expensive. A typical spray or foam cleanser for the bathroom for instance can deprive you of $4.00 or more. An herbal alternative on the other hand will cost mere pennies to make. I buy pure essential oils for an average of $3.00 per half fluid ounce. Since I am only using between 5 and 30 drops of the oil (depending on the particular formula) that half-ounce bottle goes a very long way indeed. Other all-natural ingredients such as vinegar baking soda water and castile soap are also inexpensive.

"tried a lot of the recipes in the book. The laundry soap is my favorite. Can't tell you enough how much money I have saved with using cheaper and non-chemical laiden products to get the job done. Thanks!!"

"So far so good, I love this book and have passed it on to others. I have tried a couple of recipes and can't wait to try others. It is a great way to use up last year's dried herbs."
