March 2017 Favorites

Happy April! I don’t have many favorites from last month, but I did a ton of shopping this week (Happy Birthday, to me!) which means that my April favorites will most likely be out of control.  Get ready for it.

Green Kids Spotlight: Pleni Naturals

Green Kids Spotlight: Pleni Naturals

As you might expect coming from me, I only use products that are safe, natural, and clean on my three little ones.  While I am ultra cautious about the things that I use on myself, I am very strict about what goes in and on their bodies. I’m so happy to feature Pleni Naturals today, as the brand meets all of my criteria and more. The products contain safe ingredients, such as broccoli, cucumber, and olive oils, and they get their fragrance through essential oils.  So, they are gentle and nourishing enough to use on the whole...

Products in my natural dental hygiene routine

I’ve discussed many topics on the blog, but I do not believe that I have ever really shared the things that are a part of my dental hygiene routine. So, today I am sharing my current favorite toothbrushes, toothpaste, and mouthwash.  Unfortunately, I have yet to find a green dental floss that I really like, so if you have any suggestions, please leave a comment! By the way, in case you missed it, see the oral care products I use on my children. I’ve been using natural toothpaste for as long as I can remember, and I have used...

Healthy oral care products for little ones

Healthy oral care products for little ones

When my children first got some teeth and we had to start an oral hygiene regime, I immediately gravitated toward the traditional, plastic, character-themed toothbrushes at Target.  I figured that they’d be fun for my little ones to use and that they would do the job well enough.  It just never occurred to me that there were safer and better alternatives out there. Then one day, I was doing some online shopping and just happened to stumble across some oral care products by Jack n’ Jill, and it hit me!  I thought that I was being...
