Upon learning that since 1930 over 75,000 synthetic, toxic chemicals have been introduced into the environment, Loreen began to source information to help reduce unnecessary chemicals in the home.
Another huge priority for Loreen was to reduce spending on household cleaners and personal products so that she could afford to stay home with her young children.
Becoming extremely disheartened at the amount of incorrect information out there, Loreen began to research extensively, test and experiment, and glean out the natural tips and remedies that were effective and safe. She was thrilled to find that they could be cheap to make, the ingredients were readily available and they were amazingly effective.
Loreen became excited about the money she was saving making her own, often using what was already growing in the garden or sitting in her fridge or cupboards.
After seven years of extensive research, trialling and testing hundreds of tips and recipes, Loreen decided to catalogue her successful creations to share with discerning people.
The result is two user-friendly step-by-step guides to natural household solutions and natural beauty care that do not include SLS, phosphates, formaldehyde, parabens and petrochemicals.
A former professional singer, Loreen Doherty lives happily on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia with her husband and four children.
