A great way to get just the right thing that you need it to make it yourself. You choose exactly what goes into it, and you alone can control how the finished products turns out. Not sure of how to do/make something? The Internet can tell you! I guarantee you that there are instructions some where online to do just about anything and everything.
As long as you aren't driving all over town in search of your products/ingredients, then this benefits the environment as well. You could even try using what you already have around your house.
