Natural Woman

I'm way too young to have as many aches and pains as I've got. I'm sure weight gain and some disc issues in my spine are to blame, but it seems like there is something more going on.  I just don't feel healthy.  I've surmised that the things that go into and onto my body, including what I breathe in, could have something to do with that.  What's the solution?
I'm thinking NATURAL!  Not hippie granola natural, but non-chemical homemade kind of natural.  I know there are natural options, but they are usually expensive. Saving money has always been a desire, but maybe going natural has even more benefit.  Have you ever read the labels on your cleaning products and beauty products? I can't pronounce most of it!
I've seen a lot about going shampoo-free on the internet.  My initial reaction was, "Gross!  These people are crazy!"  But, with further investigation, it sounds like something I would like to try.  Most people claim that their hair is healthier and easier to manage.  My hair tends to be flat and breaks easily at the ends.  Maybe 'poo free is for me!
I've also found recipes for laundry detergent, deodorant, and lipstick.  I also found something about washing your face with oil...unreal! I plan to start trying homemade as I run out of store-bought products.  I'll let you know how it goes!
My hope is that I will feel better, save money, and be healthier!
Now, I think I'll go clean out my pantry!
