Treat your largest organ to an all natural alternative

INVESTING in our largest organ, our skin, is probably one of the best ways we can save cash in the long run.

It is not hard to make your own all natural body products, best of all it's cheap.

AJ Body Care owners Ann and John Fisher make their own, all natural, body care products.

Mr Fisher focuses on soap and Mrs Fisher makes all of the moisturisers and body scrubs.

They said using all natural products can save you money in more ways than one.

"It's much better for your skin," Mr Fisher said.

"There's minimal chance of skin irritation which is where people then go to the doctor to get a cure.

"It's a vicious cycle; what's your health going to be like in 20 years?"

The Fisher's all natural products contain goat milk, olive oil and natural clay.

Mr Fisher said the soap might be a bit more expensive but it would last you at least month, won't go mushy and there is no scum build up in the shower because there are no nasty chemicals or foaming agents.

The clay used in the soaps also helps target certain problems, for example red clay is very good for dehydrated skin and green clay is fabulous for acne prone skin.

So instead of paying $100s of dollars on chemical treatments it might be worth trying a $5 bar of natural soap.

There are plenty of recipes out there to make your own body scrubs and soaps.

To make a delicious lip scrub, take a teaspoon of brown sugar, mix it with coconut oil and apply to your lips.

Scrub then wash off!

Simple, cheap and effective.
