It is really easy and economical to make homemade shampoo.

Commercial shampoo contains harsh cleansers called sulfates that can be drying and damaging to hair and skin and making shampoo that is chemical and toxin free is pretty simple and can be customized to meet your personal needs.

To make shampoo all you need is a base, distilled water, herbs and/or essential oils that are safe for your dog. There are some essential oils that should never be used for animals: Anise, Clove Leaf/Bud, Garlic, Horseradish, Juniper, Thyme, Wintergreen, or Yarrow, to name a few.

Cleaning the house can certainly be a chore, but it shouldn’t expose you to health risks and foul the earth.

The issues associated with toxic chemicals found in household cleaning products that line store shelves across America are a concern to health conscious consumers.

A recent Product Report from the Organic Consumer’s Association stated that the chemicals in many cleaners that foam, bleach and disinfect to make our dishes, bathtubs and countertops gleaming and germ-free, also contribute to indoor air pollution.

Fragrances added to many cleaners may cause acute reactions such as respiratory symptoms, allergy and asthma, headaches, sneezing and eye irritation.

Oftentimes common household cleaners contain substances that are poisonous if ingested and/or harmful if inhaled or touched and many are among the most toxic products of any found in the home. …read more of Tea Tree Oil: Effective Alternative to Hazardous Household Cleaners? here
