January 2014 Book of the Month
More of a go-to rather than a read cover to cover (although I’ve totally read it cover to cover), Make Your Place: Affordable, Sustainable Nesting Skills is one of my favorite informational books on using natural products for health and cleaning.
We think the back cover says it best; “Raleigh Briggs teaches us how to craft a sustainable domestic life outside of consumer consciousness. And it’s not as hard as we may think! This hand drawn book of charming tutorials is both fun and accessible. It’s full of simple skills that anyone can and should learn. From creating tinctures and salves, to concocting all-natural cleaners, to gardening basics, this book is great for anyone looking to live more simply and truly do it themselves.”
