My month long challenge of slowly ridding our house of nasty chemicals began several weeks ago. Two weeks ago, I shared my Recipe for Facial Moisturizer and last week-my DIY Organic Dishwasher Detergent.
I am concocting my own household replacements with little more than what I have on hand or what I can find at the organic market.
But the replacements must meet or exceed three important expectations for this frugal gal:
1. It must be easy to replace-no beakers or science lab experiments. Thank you.
2. It must be just as good or better than the current product I’m using and,
3. It must cost the same or less than the current product I’m using.
If the product I create passes the final test-me using it for over two plus week to make sure it does its job-then I’ll be sharing it with you. I will break down the cost for you, provide you the recipe and give you my honest opinion of the final product.
Without further ado: here is Phase 3 of ridding my house of chemicals-Cheap, Organic Face Wash made from nothing other than oatmeal.
First things first-this ‘recipe’ is simple-so simple in fact, that it shouldn’t be called a ‘recipe’. Oatmeal naturally exfoliates the skin, reduces redness, fades out sun spots and leaves the skin feeling supple.
