What to buy if you want to make your own low-tox cleaning products

I’ve been slowly collecting a new ‘range’ of cleaning and body products in my home. This has taken a good few months to get all of these goodies.

If you decide to start making all your own cleaning, room sprays, body balms, magnesium sprays, washing products… then this takes time to collect. Don’t feel like you have to race out and spend a heap of money. Most of them come from the supermarket with a few additional online purchases.

Don’t feel overwhelmed! Just start with something small. When you next throw out a bottle of product have a think about what you could make yourself to replace it.

Many of these shopping items will last me months (even years!). The low-tox alternative will be cheaper in the long run. I feel like I now have a lifetime supply!

  • Washing soda
  • Borax
  • On Guard concentrate cleaner
  • Foaming hand wash
  • Witch hazel water
  • Castile dish washing liquid
  • Vinegar

  • Arrowroot
  • Shea butter
