DIY Cleaning Products

 

 

Article by Ainsley Crase

 

Supermarket cleaning products can be costly and are full of harmful chemicals. There are plenty of safe options in your pantry that can do the same job, while still being safe for the whole family. Try these alternatives during your next spring clean!

 

Lemon Juice

 Lemon juice is a strong food acid and can fight most household bacteria, and the fresh citrus smell is a bonus.

 

Baking Soda

Baking Soda cleans, deodorizes, softens and scours. It can also provide relief to burns or insect bites when mixed with water.

 

White Vinegar

 Vinegar cuts grease, removes odours, mildew, stains and wax build-up.

 

Isopropyl Alcohol

Isopropyl alcohol or rubbing alcohol as it is commonly known is a fantastic disinfectant. It is also a solvent so it dissolves dirt and oil, and also dries fast to aid in a quick clean.

Article by Ainsley Crase

 

Essential oils are aromatic oils derived from nature. Flowers, wood, seeds, leaves and roots can all be used to extract oils for a multitude of uses. From aromatherapy to fragrances, essential oils are a safe, natural alternative for harsh chemicals. Here are 5 well-loved essential oils and their uses:

 

  1. Lemon

Lemon essential oil works to prevent oily skin. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps to clean and purify. Fun fact: although called ‘oils’, essential oils are not in fact oily.

 

  1. Lavender

Lavender essential oil is excellent for calming and relaxation. It also works as moisturiser for chapped lips and dry skin.

 

  1. Peppermint

Peppermint essential oil aids in digestion and soothes an upset stomach. Drinking it in tea or inhaling it also curbs hunger.

 

  1. Rosemary

Rosemary essential gets rid of dandruff – enough said. Massage it into the scalp before rinsing and wave goodbye to flakes.

 

  1. Chamomile

Chamomile helps to induce sleep. It is also an anti-depressant and can raise spirits simply by smelling it.

 

 

What is Fairtrade?

Article by Ainsley Crase

 

We see Fairtrade printed on a wide range of products these days – but what exactly does it mean?

Fairtrade means fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in developing countries. It involves good prices, sustainability and decent working conditions. Fairtrade ensures companies pay producers enough to develop their product and make a profit. A minimum price is established between producer and purchaser to ensure a safety net if the market falls below a sustainable level. This agreement also allows for a pre-payment deal so farmers can afford to establish their crops.

Producers also receive the Fairtrade Premium, an additional sum of money provided for social, economic and environmental investment in communities. This money is often used to build and sustain medical and educational facilities. Fairtrade certification also prevents the use of unlawful or abusive child labour.

Fairtrade is a win-win for everyone – shoppers can buy quality products that support their values, companies can receive a credible reputation and producers receive a fair price and a better quality of life. By supporting Fairtrade you are supporting a sustainable future and ensuring all workers receive what they are entitled to. Next time you do the shopping lookout for the Fairtrade label and help contribute to the future of fair-trading.

At Richiam Organics were possible we purchase Fairtrade.
