This beautiful book teaches you how to stray from consumerism by making your own cleaners, home remedies and gardening needs out of common household items. It's a great book for anyone looking to reduce their impact on the planet and to live more sustainably. The recipes are accompanied by lovely drawings.
"From gardening to essential oils, Raleigh included it all! Not to mention the fact that the book is beautifully handwritten and illustrated. I often get my tips from the internet, but Raleigh's book is wonderful to leave in the kitchen or bathroom as an instant recipe book and guide. A definite must-have starting guide for anyone interested in living a more sustainable lifestyle."--"Best Selling Book"
