The 'Eco-friendly remedies for everyday life' course at Rossett Adult Learning is aiming to reduce use of chemical-based products in single-use plastic bottles.

Course tutor Michelle, who has created her own blends and uses them in her own home, is keen to pass on her knowledge of simple everyday ingredients:

"From an early age I was always sensitive to commercial products... I always felt they were too abrasive. I started just by using a steam cleaner with hot water to clean the home and then started adding simple ingredients to that from around the house.

"I started using essential oils which smell absolutely gorgeous... What I'm doing is showing people how to bring the ingredients together."

Students can make their own cleaning blends, making use of natural plant-based materials such as lavender.
