It's undeniable that society's reliance on the quick-and-easy fix is causing mayhem; for human health, our planet, and future generations. Naturally Inspired is the perfect resource for those on a mission to live a natural life free from avoidable toxins.

By replacing a few store-bought products with DIY alternatives, not only will you improve your overall health and wellbeing, you'll also save money and reduce waste. With her gentle and realistic approach, Krissy Ballinger will help you reduce your body's toxic burden with recipes for common day-to-day essentials like deodorant, sunscreen, magnesium oil, dishwasher tablets, cleaning sprays and much more. It's easy to be inspired by the simplicity of the recipes and the stunning photography, along with the inclusion of thermal appliance methods and seemingly endless ideas on how to use essential oils.

Natural DIY has never been so easy and rewarding
