Course overview

In our Sustainable Home course, you will learn how to create your own home care products using ingredients straight from nature that are toxin free and safe for all your family members as well as our planet.

We will be covering the effects of commercial products have on your health, how to create your own natural versions of these popular products and how to use recycled materials to not only create effective cleaning products but also reduce the waste we produce.

We will be creating:

  • disinfectant sprays
  • a natural multi-purpose cleanser
  • air fresheners
  • glass and window cleaner
  • laundry powder and liquid
  • dishwasher tablets
  • fabric softener.

You will leave this course with the confidence to create these products over and over again and you will get to take home different products each lesson you have created.

All ingredients used are natural and organic where possible, as well as eco-friendly packaging.

You will also receive a weekly e-book with all the recipes and information you have learnt in that session to refer to in the future.
