Book your workshop now!

Want to host a Homemade Healthy Cleaners Workshop?

This is a great way to spend an afternoon with your friends and family learning about, and making, non-toxic homemade cleaners.

The format:
  • Usually 2 hours, depending on the number in the group. I usually ask the host to be ready for 3 hours.
  • $30 per person for 6-10 people or $27 per person for parties larger than 10 people. 
  • Host will provide the space, snacks and wine/preferred beverage (cocktails encouraged!)
  • We will make three cleaners: a disinfectant (in a sprayer or aluminum hand pump), a power scrubber in a glass jar, and an all-purpose cleaner in a large glass jug).
  • You can customize how you scent your cleaners using all natural essential oils (think grapefruit, lemongrass, lavender, rosemary, sweet orange and more). 
  • All materials are supplied by me. I will also provide some doors prizes that I makes (scrubbers, bonus cleaners, and unpaper products). 
  • If you have 6 or more attendees, the host is free!
  • I ask for a $50 deposit to hold your spot (refunded at the workshop), and can set-up online payments for your group if you want to add a prepay option.
Spots are booking quickly for the summer. I still have availability in late June and some of July, and August.

Laundry soap with liquid castile

I found this to be just as good (and a bit easier to make, because there isn't any grating involved!) as the typical bar soap + washing soda + borax recipes you'll find online. I also really like adding baking soda. I think it helps get the clothes cleaner. Some people have skin sensitivity to borax, and when my girls were tiny we just omitted it from the recipes all together and everything came out clean in the wash :)

In a large bowl combine 1 1/2 cups Borax, 1 1/2 cups Washing Soda, and 1 cup baking soda.

Using a stand mixer (whisk attachment), food processor or hand mixer, slowly add 1 cup liquid castile soap. I prefer to use the unscented variety, and add my own smell using essential oils.

Here are a few made at home Bug spray recipes...

This stores well but should be used within the year.
1/4 cup vegetable oil mixed with these essential oils (mix and store in a spray bottle):
8 drops cedar
5 drops eucalyptus
4 drops lavender
2 drops rosemary
2 drops juniper
1 drop peppermint
1 drop cinnamon
1 drop clove

This one is super simple- and you can add other scent to make it less "buggy"
2 cups witch hazel
1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin
20 drops citronella essential oil
20 drops lemongrass essential oil
Instructions: Mix in a spray bottle and shake well before use.

The Green Wagon

Have you been over to my Etsy site yet?
If you have you've seen my new spring line of upcycled wool scrubbers and unpaper towels. 

I couldn't be happier to let you know that they are now available for purchase at The Green Wagon in East Nashville! I hope you'll stop in and give Tara and Johnny some love. They have expanded the store's selection tremendously and are just a fantastic couple.

They've also asked me to come do some workshops. The first of which will be about making your own cleaners. It's a really fun workshop, and I am revamping all my handouts with some brand new recipes!

Hope to see you there!
