The Green Boutique

Household products are very harmful, both to the environment and to our health. I learned that everyday household cleaners (not just bleach) have a toxic effect on our bodies and contribute to respiratory problems, skin irritation, nervous- system damage and other health issues. And the sources of toxicity are common: for example, the average woman on a typical day wears 515 Chemicals, many of them for purely cosmetic reasons; then, more broadly, there are harmful substances that we breathe, or continually eat and use for cleaning our home. 

The Green Boutique different approach was to start my own household and cosmetics DIY based on natural, toxic-free and biodegradable ingredients. 

It has been a long journey. Over the last five years I have studied the subject-matter intensively, reading myriad books and blogs from reputable sources and experimenting with scores of recipes. Some time ago, I took a bachelor's degree in philosophy, an ideal grounding for the analytical way in which I now pursue my interests - I love the process of examining a problem in search of the truth. For that reason, whenever I undertake research my priority is to identify trustworthy sources.  Obviously, the web today is full of tips and tutorials of questionable value, and it's a challenge to find the right path: a classic case concerns sodium bicarbonate, which is a useful compound, certainly, but one quite wrongly recommended as a softener or limescale remover.

Now I feel confident enough to share my knowledge with you: on this website and in my book you will find everything that you need to make your home a healthier place to live in.I hope you find your own right path. Always remember...
