Getting started!

Hi there 🙂

This blog will be a place for me to share my knowledge of green health, beauty and home tips. I have a passion for all things green and hope that you will enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy writing it!

I believe that the best way to look and feel your best is by using natural, fresh solutions. I genuinely don’t understand how so many people think that lathering themselves and their homes with a ton of chemicals is going to do them or the environment any good. In addition to posting my own recipes and tips I will also share other articles which may be of interest (of course these will be clearly referenced).

So that’s what my aims are, if you have any suggestions/comments/questions then don’t hesitate to get in contact 🙂
