Eggs, yogurt and honey are, at first glance, all components of a tasty breakfast—but they also happen to be hair treatment ingredients, and affordable, all-natural ones at that.

Or that the mild acidity in lemon is an effective—and gentler—alternative to chemical-laden products? Next time your locks need a lift, save money by using one of these kitchen fixes.

We have both always loved experimenting in our kitchens and our bathrooms, checking ingredients in products we love, isolating the main ones, and then trying them on their own.

How to make a natural air freshener, and assemble your own laboratory for concocting teas, salves, and syrups As a little girl I mixed up shampoos and lotions in my laboratory, trying to improve on the toiletries we had.
