So I wanted to write a piece that explains why I choose the business model that I do, and why I think YOU should book a DIY Party with me!
If you are following my blog, you must already have an interest in making your own products. So if I’m preaching to the choir here, I apologize. But here it goes: What are some motivators for learning to make your own products, and for hiring Jayne to help you?
1). Save money. This one is so important to so many of us, that I will repeat it again, with emphasis: Save yourself TONS OF MONEY! I mean it. Making your own products with my simple recipes is CHEAP. Most of my products use very easy to source ingredients that can be purchased very cheaply. You will save lots of money in the long run by learning to DIY. For example, a 120 ml container of my toothpaste costs around $1 to make, compared to $6-$7 for a tube of “natural” toothpaste, that may still be harboring certain toxins. Which leads me to…..
2). Avoid toxins. Many commercially made products are loaded with toxins that are harmful for your health. I always source the least toxic, most natural ingredients possible for all of my recipes. Nearly all of what I use is organic and non-GMO, and I can provide these sources for you to purchase the same quality ingredients when making your own products.
3). Reduce your carbon footprint. Commercial products use a ridiculous amount of packaging, and much of it is non-recyclable in many municipalities. By purchasing individual products rather than making your own and buying your ingredients in bulk, you are contributing to a massive amount of unnecessary waste being sent to our landfill.

4). Get some HANDS ON experience, with troubleshooting right there for you. It can be a lot easier to begin to DIY certain products when you have someone there to coach you through it. Jayne has long term experience tweaking recipes to get the consistency & functionality just right for you. If you aren’t sure whether your finished product looks like it should, Jayne is right there to answer all of your questions. No more searching through endless forums trying to figure out what you should be doing to get your recipe right!
5). Feel empowered. It can feel pretty good to purchase products you know are less toxic alternatives, but it can feel even BETTER to make these products yourself. YOU are in control of what you are putting in your recipes, on your body, and in your home. It’s a fabulous feeling to know you can take control of this part of your life.
6). Have FUN with your favourite people! A DIY party is a unique and fun filled idea for a get together. Share the learning experience with friends, family, or coworkers, and have fun doing it! Laugh along with each other as you embark on your DIY journey. It’s a lot more exciting than googling recipes! And what a better way to convince others to DIY that might not be 100% on board with the idea? Sometimes it helps your loved ones to hear it coming from someone else to give them the jumpstart they need.
7). Support a local, stay-at-home Mom. By using Jayne’s services, you are supporting a local Mama looking to reduce the carbon footprint in her community, and engage in an ethical business that can truly make a difference in the lives of others.
So what are you waiting for? Book your DIY Party today and save money, avoid toxins, reduce your carbon footprint, get some hands on experience, feel empowered, have FUN……and support a local business!
