If you've ever heard of the 80/20 Rule, also known as Pareto's Principle, you probably know that it directly applies to home remedies.
Pareto's Principle states that, for most events, 80% of the effects come from 20% of its causes. This rule can be used in almost any area of life.
80% of your weight loss may be caused by 20% of your efforts (cutting out processed foods).
You may find that 80% of your lost time at work is due to just 20% of its causes (unnecessarily long "meetings").
Hence, the 80/20 Rule also applies to home remedies. I remember one day realizing that 80% of the home remedies I wanted or needed to make were made up of the same 20% of ingredients in my pantry.
This was a very exciting discovery, as it can become expensive and tedious to stock every type of essential oil out there.
In creating this herb chart, I've narrowed down the 20% to just six all natural ingredients that you should never be without. I think that you will also find that these ingredients make up the majority of your remedies.
What are the most frustrating and difficult things you are facing in regards to home remedies and natural living? How could I provide your ideal solution to this problem?
