Welcome to Nature’s Nurture – a blog about everything simple, natural, and homemade.

Nature’s Nurture was officially launched in September 2011. It’s a place to document the changes our family is making to slowly convert our home into a more natural, sustainable, toxin-free environment. It also serves as a resource for others looking for simple ways to take small steps towards a more eco-friendly lifestyle.

Our philosophy can be summed up in just a few words:

  • Natural
  • Frugal
  • Sustainable
  • Homemade

Everything on Nature’s Nurture fits into any, or all, of these philosophies. From household cleaners to personal care products; real food recipes to kitchen tips – our goal is to share with you the little things we learn along the way on our journey to a greener home.

Thank you for coming along for the ride; we hope you find it as fun and exciting as we do! :)

Meet Sarah

Hi! I’m Sarah, owner and author of Nature’s Nurture.

I’m on a mission: To rid our home of all chemical, processed, or otherwise unsustainable products, one item at a time. I’m a big fan of baby steps and that’s how I’m tackling this. If I can inspire just one person to make one simple change in their life, then the world is a better place :)

I’m a licensed school teacher turned happy homemaker, wife to a work-from-home web developer, and mama to our two littles: Yusuf (Monkey) and Maryam (Peanut). We’re from the US, but moved up to Toronto, Canada in 2008 and love it! 

I like to live my life by one of my favorite quotes,

“Live simply so that others may simply live.”

I’m a lover of all things practical and conventional – I’d rather make things at home using tried-and-true methods, than spend extra money only to bring toxic chemicals into my home or body. I love the natural world and believe the solutions to the world’s ailments lie in nature – hence, Nature’s Nurture!

Thanks for stopping by and following me on my journey to natural health!
