Why I make a lot of things myself - and why you can, too! PS: Christmas is coming up

If you've read my blog for a while, you know that I make a lot of things myself: from-scratch cooking, medicine, candles, and also natural body products like soaps, lip balms and medicinal salves.  There's just too many weird ingredients in commercial stuff, many of them cancer causing.  

In fact, there are over 80 thousand chemicals on the market and many of those are found in items we use every day in our homes and personal body care items!  Yuck!

But to make matters worse, only 1 percent of those have been studied for safety!  Insane!!!


In the good old days, people made their own products, from growing herbs, making their own candles and soaps.  They knew the exact ingredients that went into their products and they had the skill sets to do it.

They didn't rely on big corporations to sneak questionable ingredients into the items they used on a daily basis.

How have we lost that in just a few generations?

For starters, we're busy and the stores make it convenient, at least in the short term. Many of us didn't have anyone to teach us how to make these things at home. The only way we've ever had them is to purchase them from big companies and store shelves, trusting they're making it from the best ingredients.

But we don't have to be at the mercy of big corporations and stores. 

Enter my friend Melissa Norris.  

If you don't know her, she's a popular homesteading blogger and public speaker, gorgeous, talented mom and teacher, and my friend.  She's written a couple of wonderful books, and her latest is Hand Made: the Modern Guide to Made-from-Scratch Living and the Hand Made Masterclass.


The reason I want you to know about Melissa, her awesome book and her masterclass is because I want you to know how to make things yourself.  You know I don't recommend things lightly, but I can say 100 percent that this is worth it.

The Hand Made Masterclass and Bonuses are packed with resources to help you:



  • make your own nourishing soaps with natural colorants
  • beeswax candles in Mason jars
  • herbal infused body butters and moisturizers
  • create your own customized tinted lip balms and lipsticks
  • countdown calendar to Christmas to help you plan out your handmade gifts
  • tried and true recipes for making your own handmade natural products
  • each project is broken down in the amount of hands on time, cost per item, and how long until you can use the item
  • and so much more!

The combined value of all the trainings and resources is over $180, but for the next few days (until October 3rd), you can get EVERYTHING at 80% off!

Click here to get the Hand Made Masterclass for only $37, including the physical paperback copy of Hand Made: the Modern Guide to Made-from-Scratch Living.

And guess what, it's worry free because if you don't love it, Melissa has a money back satisfaction guarantee.  I love that woman.


Here is an excerpt from her intro:

"You'll discover old-fashioned, from-scratch cooking, and recipes so finger-licking good, they'll become your new go-to's.  Because I firmly believe food should be enjoyed, that the best recipes don't have to be complicated, and healthy can still taste good!

You'll find a marriage of the old ways and modern methods - recipes and tutorials for growing your own culinary and medicinal herbs and for making homemade soaps and body care items, and strategies for creating a haven in your home amidst our crazily paced lives.  The door is flung open, soup is simmering on the stove, a cup of tea is steaming, and the rocking chair with grandma's quilt and I are waiting.

Come on in, friend. Come on in."

Click here to get the entire Masterclass for only $37.

P.S. Remember the early bird pricing is only through Tuesday October 3rd!

PPS: Christmas IS coming, and some of the things you'll learn how to make would be awesome Christmas gifts!
