Author profile pictureGreetings Newbie!

Welcome to Natural Nerd.

I’m Christina, a former city dweller turned small town gal. My goal is to help you and your families live healthier, in ways which also help our beautiful planet. All on a budget of course! The recipes themselves are easier than pie. Scratch that – making pie is difficult. The recipes are easier than making a sandwich.

Now I could waffle on about the scary chemicals lurking in your products, but if you are reading this blog, chances are that you already know a little something about this. If not, then take a squizz at some quick facts to get you in the loop. I also think it’s important for you to know how to use essential oils safely, since many of my recipes contain them.

Where to start?

As a starting point, I first recommend getting rid of your roll-on/ antiperspirants. You can either trust that I got your back on this one, or you can assume I’m crazy and read why I babble such nonsense here.

So now that you’ve chucked the roll-on, your fresh armpits are a ticking time bomb! Get the ball rolling by making your own roll on, body wash, face wash, shampoo, moisturiser, lip balm and much more! You can look forward to new recipes every week including:

I’d also love to send you updates when I post new recipes and reviews, so please sign up for my newsletter below. No spam, I promise!

Shopping Guide

If you are having trouble finding a specific ingredient or product that I’ve mentioned, then my personal shopping guide might help you. You can also find many of the ingredients online at Faithful to Nature or Dischem, which is another way you can support my blog. I make a tiny commission when you purchase from them within 24 hours of clicking my links to their website. If you do support me, thank you so much. I sincerely appreciate it. You will also receive R100 discount on your first purchase from Faithful to Nature when you sign-up for their newsletter. That’s a good way to get started 😉

Please feel free to ask questions and share your experiences with me in the comments section of posts, or on my social media channels (see the sidebar for links). You can also read my full disclaimer & privacy policy here.
