Natural Products That I Love

I sometimes get questions about various products that I use – everything from eyeliner to frying pans.

And I totally get it. There are toxins in so many unsuspecting areas (coal tar and petroleum in your makeup, anyone?), and “greenwashing” is so rampant in product marketing, that it makes it really hard to know what is truly natural and nontoxic… and what isn’t.

With that in mind, I put together a huge list of my favorite products that are all natural and that actually work! It contains everything from supplements to food and drinks, baby products and, of course, beauty products.

This is a long page, but I’ve divided the products into sections, which you can jump to via these links:

Supplements I use

Blue Ice Royal Butter Oil

Arm’s Reach Mini Co-Sleeper Bassinet - Natural
