I am a wife to my best friend; a mother to my precious little bug; and a lawyer, who holds a full-time job. Becoming a mother was the single most significant event in my life. It beat passing the bar exam by a country mile. When I held my little girl for the first time, I promised her that I will do all that I can to care, protect, and love her.
My baby has extremely sensitive skin, and does not tolerate store-bought products. That’s not surprising. Have you ever read what’s in a store-bought lotion or body wash? I don’t blame companies for listing the ingredients in ultra-tiny fonts. After I researched and learned more about the common ingredients in these commercial products, I knew I had to find another way to care for my baby’s skin. My solution: create my own body care products at home, using only natural ingredients, without preservatives or synthetic materials.
I started NaturallyHandcrafted.com because I believe that I can handcraft beauty and body care products that are better for me, my family and the environment than those available on the market. I scour the internet, DIY and natural living blogs, libraries and books to find the best and easiest recipes. I try out and tweak the recipes, then share my experience and newfound knowledge on this blog. I also run an Etsy shop, under the brand name: NourishBodyCare, where I offer some of the best soap bars I’ve handcrafted using these recipes. I hope people who share the same interest will try my recipes and provide the community with their feedback and suggestions that build on or improve on what I post.
Join the community by dropping me a line, commenting on posts or reply to others’ comments. There are multiple ways we can share and grow our knowledge as a community. Who needs store-bought products and their harsh chemicals, questionable preservatives and synthetic smell, when we can create what we need, want and love ourselves, using natural ingredients, right in our own home. Perfecting one product at a time, we will replace all of our store-bought beauty and body care products with those we handcraft naturally.
