Happy Earth Day! I thought it was timely on this day to discuss how we can be a little more conscious of the Earth by switching over to more natural and organic products. Besides, most of these companies are offering sales and discounts on their websites to celebrate this day.

You should be able to find the items below at your local organic or natural market. Examining the list of ingredients is always helpful in understanding what might be harmful or beneficial for your body.


  • Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap
    • Oh oh, it's magic! We put this soap on our dishes, heat up hot water in our electric kettle and then let them soak in our sink for a few minutes. Choose from flavors like tea tree, lavender or peppermint, to name a few.
      • Try making your own version using vinegar + tea tree oil.
  • Seventh Generation - Disinfecting Wipes & Chlorine Free Baby Wipes  
    • These rock! Use the disinfecting wipes for your counters and floors. Purchase the baby wipes for your hands and face if you know you'll be camping and won't have access to running water.
      • Try making your own using vinegar + pine oil or tea tree oil.


  • Nature's Gate Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, Lotion & Toothpaste
    • These are great, but don't expect the same effect on your hair right away after switching from more common shampoos or conditioners.
      Tip: Try using less shampoo and sub in conditioner between washes. And if you're feeling brave, try going a few days between hair rinses.
  • Honeybee Gardens Cosmetics
    • All their products are fantastic, but I particularly love their mascara, which is vegan and made with palmetto fruit and avocado butter.
  • EcoTools Bamboo Brushes
    • Recycled aluminum ferrules and 100% cruelty free. Yes please!
      • Use code EARTH15 to get 15% off their website.
  • Burt's Bees Hand Salve
    • Do you love lavender and rosemary? If so, you'll love using this to keep your hands from drying out.
  • Soapwalla Deodorant Cream
    • This is a great option for those of you looking to steer away from aluminum deodorants. Friends recommend applying a little bit of apple cider vinegar before using the cream.
  • Coconut Oil + Oregano Oil
    • I ran into an "oil guru" at Natural Grocers that advised me to add oregano oil to my Oil Pulling routine. Apparently the Wellness Mama agrees and has her own recipe for using these two things.

Bonus Item

  • Reusable Gallon Jugs
    • Please don't buy a pack of cheap plastic water bottles. This is a good alternative if you're going camping and won't have access to running water.
    • Most grocery stores have stations where you can refill them with their reverse-osmosis filter system. Usually they cost me around $.15-.25 a gallon.
