How Have Our Household Products Changed Over Time?

Our household products have changed rapidly in the last century. It’s only been recently that humans have been living the way we are today with our products.


This picture, thanks to My Baby Brilliant, really describes the devastating effects of our products.



We didn’t used to have these mass products because all we could get were things that we made ourselves or we went without them. Shampoo for example, is a great example.  Not only did woman not use very much shampoo, they also didn’t have to wash it as much because the harsh chemicals in today’s shampoos didn’t strip their natural oils like ours do.



This image, from Andrea Reed, shows the form of rosemary that would’ve been used in those natural shampoos!





They used things like vinegar, rosemary, rum, and even egg yolks for their hair care, which were all very natural and light on hair.  However today, we have created more and more chemicals and preservatives for the amount of people who want to buy them, and that’s a lot of people.

Here’s a photo that depicts how horrible our cleaning products are as being poison with the skull and cross bones on the spray bottle. Thank you Shawana for designing this!


Our bodies are not built to be able to cope with all these crazy chemicals. But what can we do about it? Well, that’s where I come in. There are so many ways of making wonderful natural homemade products that are so much safer for our bodies. Using more of the old fashioned natural ingredients is how I plan to make my products.
