How one trade show saved my life… literally. Thank you Natural & Organic Products Show.

I am lucky, very lucky, to be invited to many trade shows throughout the year all around the UK as press. But if you follow me on Twitter you'll know I have one show that I always get excited about. The Natural & Organic Products Show has been my favourite trade show for the past few years. The show is exceptionally well organised and I look forward to the show as soon as I start to get the emails about it early in the year. However this year was different. This year, the show saved my life.... literally. As always,...Continue reading

Homemade Natural Washing Powder / UK Recipe Laundry Powder

Please note: I originally wrote this post back in 2014 - but it has now been updated with 2018 prices! We do a lot of washing in our house. About 20-25 loads a week roughly, sometimes more.  This is something that all households have to do but it does make it hard when one of your kids has very allergic skin.  We have a lot of problems with various washing powders and fabric conditioners as they contain so many harsh chemicals that I might as well just roll my youngest through a patch of nettles! So we decided to make...Continue reading

Dry Shampoo Recipe – Natural, Easy & Cheap! UK Recipe

My kids are obsessed with dry shampoo and it is very handy stuff.  Normal shop bought shampoo is full of nasties. They are overloaded with chemicals and really do no good to your hair and if used too often can strip out all the natural goodness and leave your hair dull and not to mention, very tangled. And what if you are out and about and need your hair to look good but can’t get to a shower? Then dry shampoo is the answer and our recipe is not only super easy to make, it is also cheap and natural….

Top 10 tips for creating a kids vegetable patch!

No, I'm obviously not suggesting that you hand over your garden to a 4 year old. However why not give your child (or children) a vegetable garden of their very own. Children's veggie gardens can be made from a small raised bed in your own garden, a large tub or if you don’t have a garden, they could have a window box. Getting your children into gardening will teach them many values. They will realise where their food comes from, how plants grow, what plants need to survive, they will have fun and of course they will eat their own...Continue reading
