When I first read the title of Lemons and Lavender: The Eco Guide to Better Homekeeping, I assumed it was a book about DIY green cleaning. The products most people use to clean their homes is very, very toxic, and lemons and lavender are a great alternative. This book is much, much, more!
From composting to nearly free holidays, this book truly is a guide to greener living. Billee Sharp shows you how in Lemons and Lavender: The Eco Guide to Better Homekeeping.
Author Billee Sharp shares her freecycling, budget-savvy, barter-better wisdom in this step-by-step handbook for revolutionizing spending habits and reclaiming quality of life. Lemons and Lavender is an inspiring and instructive guide to living the handmade life by consuming less and creating more. Practical and profound, this handy how-to covers every area of life and offers easy-to-do tips, recipes, and advice for saving money and the planet. Learn how to ditch your lawn and raise organic vegetables, cook healthy meals for pennies, cure minor maladies from the kitchen cabinet, save big dollars with small repairs, and eco-clean your house with lemons and lavender. With this guide, families can live more joyfully and far more creatively, all on a dime.
This book is very comprehensive! There is something for everyone to learn and be inspired by reading. For example, I need to learn to consume less. I am pretty green about my consumption, but I am still stuck in capitalist consumerism and fall into the want vs. need conundrum.
I love how this book covers the gamut. There’s a recipe for natural dye, as well as eco-paint stripper. I can’t wait to try both!
