Make-up: I've replaced my mascara with this organic mascara from Physicians Formula. Free of all chemicals and toxins and created using plants and natural elements. I love it! I am planning to go to my local co-op soon to look at their organic/natural make-up selection and keep replacing my products!
One word--NORWEX. I was introduced to Norwex a few years ago and love love love their products. My first go to product is their enviro-cloth. These cloths are made with fine fine strands (like 1/500 of a human hair!) of silver, which naturally repels germs and bacteria--so you can use it on meat juices, toilet seats, and your hands and the germs wont transfer----so crazy! I need about 5 more.
Hairspray: Replaced my treseme hairspray with organic hairspray. Still smells pretty strong, but toxin free!
Oh Coconut oil. Thank you to my friend Regan for introducing me to the greatness of this stuff! I use it for:
Face and Body Lotion
Natural first aid--think neosporin
Again, Norwex :) I use the make-up cloths from this brand to both remove my make-up and wash my face. The exfoliating cloth does the same work as an exfoliating scrub and a face wash because of the antibac qualities. I love them and use them daily.
Essential Oils: I am learning new things daily about how to use oils and what to use them for I really dislike and have always disliked taking pills so being able to find a holistic alternative has been so nice. I got this starter kit with some essentials and use at least one every day. Some things I use them for often:
Natural cleaning solution (mixed with water and vinegar)
Cinnamon in my sanitizer--natural antibac
Shampoo: I got rid of all of Everett's bubble baths, shampoos and body washes and incorporated this new product into his (and MY) bathing/showering routine. It serves as a 3 in 1 being a shampoo, bubble bath and body wash. It is chemical and toxin free--again using plant solutions. I use it for my own shampoo!
Wish List: The products below are, you guessed it, Norwex! :) I am going to a fellow crunchy friend's house this week for a Norwex party and hope to get the following products! (And hope Curt doesn't notice the bank account if I do :) )
See. Simple people. If I can do it, you can too! Have you become chemical free? I'd LOVE to hear about the ways you have replaced your oldies with some goodies! :)
