Lemons and Lavender: The Eco Guide to Better Homekeeping

By it's title, I had it in my head that Lemons and Lavender was going to be one of those "You need to do this for the environment because it's your duty" books. In reality, it's anything but that! Lemons and Lavender is my new go-to book for everything green and self-reliance related.
"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."
Were to begin, hmm...there are just so many amazing tips and ideas in this wonderful book! Lemons and Lavender outlines the benefits to health, wealth, and the environment when living more naturally. It contains a wealth of knowledge about eating clean, use of natural extracts and essential oils, sharing the wealth by recycling and freecycling, growing your own food, and being creative, all to benefit you, your pocketbook, and Mother Earth!

I've become addicted to this book. I've read through it in it's entirety, and each time I flip through to find my highlighted ideas I come across something I'd overlooked before. The amount of knowledge in this book makes me want to go out and try everything! (and you can, pretty easily! There are several recipes I looked at and thought "I have these ingredients right now...")

I can't stress enough how much of a perfect gift addition this book is. For yourself, your family members, or anyone who's even the slight bit curious about living more sustainably or eco-friendly. Treat them to a gift that keeps on giving (and saving!)
