What Makes Us Unique
If there were a way to describe you it'd be: health conscious, hungry for change and in pursuit of better health.
But if the one word to describe how you feel about making the lifestyle changes necessary to achieve your best state of health: Overwhelmed.
You just don't know where to begin or what to try next, you may not know an awful lot about about plants, herbs, essential oils and all that "holistic" health stuff. Even if you have some knowledge, navigating world of "natural" products presents it's own problems, there are thousands. And then you need to wade though which products, brands and ingredients are merely masquerading as healthy because not all are what they seem. Never-mind creating your own because that means sourcing sound ingredients and kit to go with it... Aggghh! Making big changes like this is daunting and may even impossible. It's easy to give up before you start or become disappointed with the lack of results. But it doesn't have to be this way and that's where I can help you.
Here at Frugal by Nature the intention to make your journey to natural health and wellness simpler. Whether you are a total newbie or a well seasoned crunchy, I help you unravel the power of mother nature and apply it so you can become the healthiest version of yourself. Designed to inform you and arm you with sound information and non-toxic alternatives to every day chemical laden products, be it beauty, household or otherwise from.

While sticking up a couple of fingers to big pharma in the process, of course (wink).

The journey began in 2014, after a serious road traffic accident I left my nursing career behind. Somehow between learning to walk again I stumbled across the man who was to become my husband. It was his health conditions that lead us down the path of holistic health.
Over 20 years of mainstream medicine had failed to provide a cure for my hubby's rare skin condition, Pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) and his health deteriorating fast. In 2015 he was diagnosed with skin failure and we knew we had to do something. There simply had to be another way. I spent weeks reading, researching and finally, armed with little more than raw 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 jacked in big pharma drugs in favour of a holistic and natural approach. As I researched, I was horrified at the chemicals and toxins we are routinely exposed to and we changed the way we lived. We cleaned up our diets and binned all our personal 'care' and cleaning products in favour of homemade natural alternatives. Sure, there it trial and error but within months we saw remarkable results. Our friends, the pharmacist and doctors began asking how we'd done it. They were flabbergasted that the process was completely natural. We continue to live consciously and these days hubby is doing much better, his skin is pretty awesome actually. That's when I realised this success had to be shared with the world because you can heal yourself. That's what your body is designed to do - if you let it.
Since We Started
Frugal by Nature was born in 2016 after experiencing how reducing toxic exposure and harnessing the power of nature changed my family's life. I was pregnant with my son when I began exploring the possibility of building a website despite having never done anything like this before. My son was born at home that winter and not long after that Frugal by Nature was born too.
Month on month our number of visitors and customers continued to grow and in 2017, I became an Independent Consultant for Neal's Yard Remedies Organic. The blue bottle love has been infectious and I now have a growing team of Consultants across the UK.
Frugal by Nature has since has reached thousands of people worldwide and it is my mission to help you to ditch the crap and take responsibility for your own health. I have always believed everything we need is right here already and it's time we all started to really embrace mother nature and what she has to offer.
