I'm excited to announce that I have launched a new line of products which are all natural and of course, safe for you and your family. We currently have a range of lip balms for men and women and a pregnancy belly butter. Check it out at BareNaturals.co.nz
Welcome to my blog!
My name is Christina and I currently live in Christchurch, New Zealand with my husband, my 3 year old son Bear, and one and a half year old Arabelle. I started this blog as a creative outlet and to share my love for cooking and making natural cleaning and beauty products. Hope you enjoy – thanks for visiting : )
So Wendyl Nissen is a bit of a hero of mine. A friend recommended one of her books to me called 'A Home Companion' about a year ago. I've always been inclined to lean more toward natural products in the house where possible – but have never thought of making them myself or where to start. Enter A Home Companion. Until reading Wendyl's book I didn't realize just how many chemicals and the impact that has on our health are in our every day house and beauty products. I read it from cover to cover and was very inspired by how easy Wendyl made it seem to go green. I then went on a mission to source ingredients (which was very easy thanks to Lotus Oils) and now I have a great time creating my own cleaning and beauty products. I so enjoyed this new hobby that I started to research new recipes as well.
I emailed Wendyl when I was going to start this blog and asked her if I could post some of her recipes here and she promptly emailed back saying 'yes of course, the more people that know the merrier' (how great is she?!). So you will find some of her recipes here – but I really encourage you to buy her books. You will use them for years to come and then hopefully hand them down to your children to help keep the 'green' spirit alive. Visit Wendyl's site HERE to purchase her book and products.
