Natural Face Cleaners


My face wash which I bought in like October just came to an end.  I bought it because it was organic.  While most of the ingredients were meant to be organic some weren’t and there were still words in the ingredients list that sounded very much like chemicals.  Not good.  I was thinking of searching for a more natural face wash or getting something from Lush when this appeared in my inbox.  Four natural DIY cleansers. It had me intrigued from the start.  Sounded just like what I needed.    I read on the list included: Natural Yoghurt, Honey, Oil and the use of Grains for more of a scrub.  Well, we had a pot of natural yoghurt in the fridge(we buy one 500ml pot a week)that had just the last bits in the tub and the date for eating it was  up, so I decided I’d try it out.

I must admit it was weird rubbing yoghurt onto my face and smelling dairy in the shower, but my skin does feel quite soft!  I’ve got some honey sat in the cupboard too, so I might give that a try next!  Have you got any natural face cleansers that you use?

War On Germs


Seeing as we all fell victim of the norovirus and flu, I vowed while I was very sick that I would being disinfecting pretty much everything that our hands touched or Miss E snotted over.  Today, I finally felt up to it.  As we are trying to eliminate nasties from our house as much as possible, a bleach solution was not an option.  I got out my trusty friend, tea tree oil.  I put a good few drops into my basin and filled with warm water (probably too much as my eyes stang a little from the vapour!).  And then I got to work……all door handles, light switches, tables got a wipe down and all Miss E’s toys including all her ball pit balls got washed.  Some may say I went slightly overboard, and when my husbands arrives home very shortly, and the smell of tea tree oil assaults his nostrils he will probably say the same, but why take the risk of those germs infecting us again? 🙂  Do you have any natural products you use to disinfect your house after a bout of sickness?
