The Birth Of A Blog

Frugalbynature.com began on my mobile phone almost by fluke. As a home educating mum of two and I’d been manifesting a way to be my own boss and build an online business doing what I love (what is often asked of me); to help others live more naturally. Then I stumbled across wealthy affiliate; a comprehensive online platform which trains in affiliate marketing and building websites. It’s been a fantastic resource and this website is the product of my ongoing training there.

I dedicated my free time to training and building my website (usually at night on my phone) and enjoy -almost- every minute of it.

The Back Story: Why We Banished Toxins

The essence of FrugalByNature is born out of a raw passion for natural health after experiencing how removing everyday toxins from our lives and harnessing the power of nature has changed my family’s life.

About four years ago my husband was diagnosed with skin failure due to an underlying rare skin condition. With modern medicine not doing him any favours and causing more problems than solutions, we decided to jack it in. After hours research and armed with little more than shea butter, carrier and essential oils and a makeshift double boiler; I began to make my creams in hope of easing my husband’s skin complaints. 

We cleaned up our diets and binned all our personal ‘care’ and cleaning products in favour of homemade natural alternatives. We took a holistic approach, it wasn’t an overnight fix and some things took getting used too (oil pulling anyone?). There were much trial and error but within months the difference was quite remarkable.

We continued and as my husband got better our friends wanted to learn how we’d done it. I began sharing the knowledge and continue to do so, just now the audience is worldwide. These days my husband is doing much better and his skin is pretty awesome. In fact, my children and I are in good health so it was well worth it and I’m never looking back. By leveraging the World Wide Web it’s my intention to share with like-minded souls who are seeking a more natural lifestyle, regardless of where you may reside, I want to connect and share with you.

About Me – When I’m Offline

I currently reside in not so glamorous Northamptonshire, England where I’ve been almost 10 years. I’ve completed some nurse training and spent time studying science (forensic). I am self-taught in natural medicine, foraging and wild food but do not claim to be an expert in any field, nor am I a medical professional. Just putting that out there!

When I’m not breastfeeding, helping my daughter learn computer science (or just letting her bounce ideas off me because I don’t speak Javascript like she does!), writing a post, researching or hanging out helping others at Wealthy Affiliate – I enjoy a good book, music – a very eclectic mix of Electronic and Rock to Classical and RnB – and being in the woods or near water. I like to travel, upcycle and love a good charity shop!

Stay blessed,

    Once upon a time, I had my own health challenges and also sought and found holistic solutions,. But that was way back in my 20’s. Now I am in my 40’s and I think I may have gone off-track somewhat. Time to find that balance again so signing up for your newsletter.

    1. Hi Lauren, thank you for coming by and for your comments.
