Nontoxic home & beauty products for pumpkin lovers

A little over two years ago, I did a post called 10 beauty products for pumpkin lovers.  That post is a little out of date now, especially considering that only a couple of the products were green. We can’t have that now, can we? So, today I present to you, my updated list of beauty and home care products just for my fellow pumpkin lovers!

Happy October! It feels like I just did one of these posts for August.  September was kind of a blur with school and extracurricular activities starting up again, but I am really excited about October.  My oldest baby turns four at the end of the month! Aside from the fact that the weather finally started to cool off a degree or two, here are some of the things that I loved during the month of September.     LCOrganics Autumn Room & Linen Sprays I already wrote about these in my post on 3 nontoxic ways to instantly make your...

Still, I am always looking for more natural ways to add fragrance...

Home care spotlight: Norwex

Home care spotlight: Norwex

Please note: This is not a sponsored post. As always, this post reflects my own true thoughts. Perhaps you saw Norwex pop up on Facebook, and you wondered, “What the heck is that?” I sure did. And like me, you might have rolled your eyes at the thought of one more MLM taking over your feed.   My skepticism started to wane after reading up about the company and learning that it is devoted to cleaning without harsh chemicals or harmful cleansers.  My doubts completely vanished when my friend Mandy, a Norwex consultant, came to my...
