In this timely and motivational guide, author Julia Watkins shares rituals, recipes, and projects for living simply and sustainably at home.

 

For every area of your household-kitchen, cleaning, wellness, bath, and garden-Julia shows you how to eliminate wasteful packaging, harmful ingredients, and disposable items.

 

Practical checklists outline easy swaps (instead of disposable sponges, opt for biodegradable sponges or Swedish dishcloths; choose a bamboo toothbrush over a plastic one) and sustainable upgrades for common household tools and products.

 

Projects include scrap apple cider vinegar, wool dryer balls, kitchen bowl covers and cloth produce bags, non-toxic dryer sheets, all-purpose citrus cleaner, herbal tinctures and balms, and more, plus recipes for package-free essentials like homemade nut milk, hummus, ketchup, salad dressings, and veggie stock.

    WILDWOOD is a grassroots apothecary and herb craft studio creating small-batch, healing care potions, infused with magic in the heart of Wellington County. 

     

    Unapologetically Analog. We embrace the old ways. Handcrafting our organic formulas slowly, and with the utmost of care, using the purest and most wholesome botanicals, rare essences, and house-distilled whole plant extracts. Our flora is wild gathered from hedgerows and tenderly dried from the rafters in our stone crofters cottage. No automation, no machines. Simple hand tools, carved wooden spoons, an heirloom mortar and pestle of worn stone, and pruning shears of burnished brass, stored in the whitewashed antique bakers cabinet in our stillroom.
