In an effort to live more simply (as well as being frugal), my family makes many of our own products to replace store-bought things. We also do this in order to reduce the amount of toxins in our environment. This page is where you'll find a growing index of these goodies, so you can make them too. You'll notice many of these recipes include essential oils. We've come to love and depend on these, as they really are powerful players in many of these recipes.
