Why DIY?

In the age of the internet, when accessibility to products and services is constantly growing, it is increasingly easier for people to settle into the norm and buy commercial products. one quick shout to Alexa or Siri and Amazon sends you things faster than you get get to the store and buy them yourself.

At madelife, we focus on teaching you the skills you need in order for YOU to do the work.

Not only is producing your own products fun, but it can also save you money. Consider the lip balms for example. They can range in price and come from a variety of producers. Not only can commercial products like these be a burden on your budget but they can also contain chemicals or other fillers that you might not recognize or want. So why pay more for a possibly inferior product?

Taking things into your own hands…pun totally intended…and learning how to make some of the products you use in house is a way to add your own energy into the product and know each and every ingredient that goes into it.

Taking action and learning the skills yourself can provide some serious financial, physical, and environmental benefits. Free yourself from the grip of commercialism! Learn a few things on the way too.
