The Home Herbals & Hedgerow kitchen -
making kitchen cosmetics, home remedies, natural cleaning products & ayurveda beauty & health
Using many of the everyday household items, either found in our kitchen cupboards or grown in our gardens, to make kitchen cosmetics, home remedies, natural cleaning products, and Ayurveda beauty & health, is a natural, simple and cost effective method of looking after our skin, maintaining good health, and treating ailments, and living in a natural, chemical-free home. Making these recipes & remedies from items found in our kitchen cupboards and pantries, is simply an extension of cooking. As well as using produce from the garden for food, our ancestors would have used produce as a medicine source, using what was fresh when it was in season. Using in season produce has many benefits, including being in harmony with our natural environment, supporting local farmers and businesses, reducing carbon miles, and benefitting from lower prices when buying local, in season produce. Unlike many of our forebears, we have an abundance of fresh fruits & vegetables all year round, including many such as avocado and coconut, which are not suited to our climate and have come from further afield. The result is an abundance of health giving, skin nourishing, naturally cleaning & disinfecting, potions & lotions for health, beauty & cleaning, at our fingertips!
