I am having SO MUCH fun sharing these posts with you guys! I’ve been trying out so many different products this past year. There is a huge learning curve to switching over to more natural, non-toxic products. Some are better than others, and I am only sharing my absolute favorites with you here in this weekly series.
Today I am going to share a couple bath products and a couple household products. (I guess I technically am sharing more than three products, but I had a hard time choosing which ones to share this time… Haha!). OK, let’s get into it!
This combines two things I LOVE – exfoliation and body oil. I have dry skin, so I like to use a lot of oil and this contains vitamin E oil (the best!). It also smells like roses. I have been working on my shower/bath routine lately, and it feels really special to put effort into making it one of the best parts of the day! Why not?
When I first switched all my products, it was overwhelming and kind of expensive because I did a lot at once. So I really appreciate affordable products that come in bigger bottles and last longer! I’ve been using this lotion for months, and it’s one of my favorites. It’s simple and straightforward and smells really nice.
I still haven’t found one candle to burn in our home. I’m on the hunt, but in the meantime, it’s been fun to have a big variety. I am working to only purchase soy candles because they are less toxic and burn cleaner. I am loving this 42 Pressed brand. I have been burning the Charleston and Chicago candles.
A couple months ago, I heard someone talking about how many toxic chemicals are in dryer sheets. It wasn’t necessarily on my radar, but I read a few articles and was immediately convinced to replace them with a natural alternative. So I ordered these dryer balls, which help to reduce static. You can add essential oils to the balls to give them a scent.
White Fir Essential Oil
This is my favorite oil scent, but I can see how it’s not for everyone. I would recommend choosing a scent that’s similar to what you would choose in dryer sheets. 🙂
I hope this was helpful (or just a fun read – either way!!). I am always interested in trying new things and VERY much in a learning phase right now, so feel free to share any favorites of your own in the comments! xx- Elsie
