Primally Pure

Skincare, Bath & Body, Deodorant, Dry Shampoo. Primally Pure uses nature’s ingredients to create non-toxic skincare products that support radiant skin, a healthy body, and a happy self. This is my go-to company for safer deodorant and dry shampoo — two products that are traditionally full of harmful chemicals. The face oils and bath soaks are divine, I buy the lip balms by the dozen, and the baby products are super popular. Plus the Everything Spray is wonderful on armpits!

This Canadian small company is committed to providing an exceptional bath experience by highlighting the power harnessed within naturally derived raw ingredients. They only source fair trade, ethically produced raw ingredients and that are free of any harsh chemicals, artificial fragrances, colorants, phthalates, and parabens. Their Crush Soaks and Elixir Bubble Baths are divine, and there are options for little ones as well. My favorite is the Eucalyptus Apothecary!

With a combo of amino acids, magnesium flakes, lemon juice powder, and eucalyptus oil, this safer bath salt soak is great for post workout recovery, immune boosting, and giving you the best sleep of your life.

Nail Care

Cote 

Nail Polishes and Remover. All of côte’s polishes are created free of the major toxins and allergens that are often associated with nail polish: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, camphor, formaldehyde resin, TPHP, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens, and gluten. And yes, they really work! Bring these along with your own safer scrub and lotion to your next pedicure. 

 

Dazzle Dry

Oral Health Care

Dr. Brite

Oral Health Products. Dr. Brite is a B Corp, EWG Verified, and the products are made in the USA. A woman created the products because her toddler had a toothpaste eating habit, and she realized how many toxic chemicals her child was ingesting. We use the toothpastes, mouth rinse, fresh mouth spray (my fave!), the kids products, and the whitening products. Everything is just really good, and I love that they use hydroxyapatite instead of fluoride (which is a neurotoxin). They also have wonderful hand sanitizer and wipes!

 

RiseWell

Safer oral health care. If you are using a safer toothpaste that does not have fluoride, you want to make sure it has hydroxyapatite for tooth mineralization. I LOVE this Hydroxyapatite Toothpaste and Alkalizing Mouthwash! I also use their floss because it’s infused with HA instead of fluoride, and it doesn’t contain teflon (you know, that stuff that was removed from pans because of health risks but is in many flosses), petroleum wax, or artificial flavors.

Home Cleaning

Branch Basics

Home Cleaning Products. This female-founded company (these three girls are the sweetest!) provides a multi-purpose, plant-based concentrate to clean basically anything in your home — laundry, bathrooms, kitchen, etc. Each starter set comes with a bottle of concentrate and a set of refillable bottles, and every ingredient used has a rating of 1 on the EWG Skin Deep Database. It’s one of the cleanest and safest home products out there! They also have an awesome Oxygen Boost to whiten clothes and new dishwasher tablets that really do work.

Dropps

Laundry and Dishwasher Detergent. This is basically pushing the easy button for laundry and dishes. Dropps is a green cleaning company committed to being sustainable and earth friendly. Just pop the pre-measured pods with cleaner ingredients into your washing machine and dishwasher. And I especially love the oxi-boost pods, the active wear pods (because boys are stinky!), and the fabric softener pods. I use fragrance free, but they do have scents if you prefer.

Force of Nature

Safer cleaning products for the home. This EPA registered disinfectant kills 99.9% of germs to include Staph, MRSA, Norovirus, Influenza A, Salmonella, and Listeria. It is an appliance that uses electricity to turn salt, water & vinegar (it’s like a science experiment!) into a multipurpose cleaner and disinfectant. Hypochlorous acid is the active ingredient that does the cleaning, and it’s as powerful as bleach with none of the toxic chemicals. It’s also on the EPA’s List N, which means it’s approved for use against SARS-CoV-2. This is a must have item in my house.

*Codes vary every month, so email me for the current one! It will get you 40% off any of the Force of Nature bundles.

 

Truly Free

Clean home products for the entire home, to include the kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry. Truly Free creates innovative, powerful & family-safe products in refillable & reusable packaging which empower families to protect themselves from harm & reduce their environmental footprint. They are dedicated to protecting families and our planet from exposure to harmful toxic chemicals, and they also do amazing work to save women from human trafficking, provide meaningful work for survivors, and operate safe houses and orphanages. This company is doing amazing work in so many ways.

Fragrance

Skylar

Clean beauty company that creates clean fragrances which are hypoallergenic and safe for sensitive skin but suitable for all. All scents are vegan and cruelty-free, bottled in sustainable and eco-friendly packaging. I personally love the Discovery Set because you can try out 5 fragrances for just $25. Skylar gets a big thumbs up from me because they disclose full ingredient lists on the website – transparency is so important! They also have candles, and I really want to try the Vanilla Sky Candle.

 

Phlur

Clean Perfumes. Phlur is a wonderful company toI use for fragrances, because the scents are amazing and I know how much the company does to ensure safety. Phlur is a B Corps, which means they are committed to transparency, sustainability, and doing good for people and planet. They have full sized bottles along with travel sizes which are a great way to find your favorite scent.

CBD Products

Equilibria

If you’re going to take CBD, it’s really important to find a company that takes quality, potency, and purity seriously. And Equilibria does that with organic farming, in-house testing, and third-party lab results. This CBD company is dedicated to helping women find balance in their lives in the face of stress, discomfort, and chronic conditions. If you haven’t given CBD a try, now might be the time to give it a whirl! I use it for reducing inflammation, maintaining calm in a world of crazy, and optimizing good sleep. I personally use the CBD oil before bed and the Daily Softgels in extra strength for all-day balance, and the gummies for times of high stress. But the company also has dosage specialists to help you find what your body needs, which is think is one of the best features of Equilibria.

Essential Oils

Vibrant Blue Oils

There are a ton of essential oil companies out there, and this is the one that I regularly recommend to my clients. Vibrant Blue Oil blends have been created with the intention of bringing the body, brain and emotions into balance so the body can heal. VBO formulates proprietary blends of organic or wild-crafted essential oils that help balance organ systems and regions of the brain, including balancing emotions and supporting symptoms, so the body can function optimally and heal. They are free from pesticides, chemical fertilizers, adulterants, and added synthetic chemicals, all of which are confirmed by performing GC/MS testing on every batch. I always have the Parasympathetic blend on hand as it turns on the body’s ability to heal! It’s very powerful.

Water

Clearly Filtered

Water is the most essential nutrient we need, and it also has the potential to be full of harmful chemicals and toxicants. They are the only pitcher I’ve ever found that can remove fluoride, lead, and PFAS/PFOA (the “forever chemicals”) as well as over 230 unique contaminants commonly found in tap water all across the country. They do third-party independent testing of all of their products and publish the results. They’re also family-owned, made in the USA, and have a lifetime guarantee. Definitely grab the water bottles that allow you to transform ordinary tap water into clean and safe drinking water by simply sipping through the straw.

 

Berkey

I have owned this countertop water filter for years and absolutely love it. Berkey water filters can be classified as a water purifier because they remove bacteria and viruses that conventional filters cannot. Its  elements actually remove 99.9999999% of pathogenic bacteria (9-log reduction) and 99.999% of viruses which greatly exceeds the standards. I love that it does not require any electricity or pumps so it can be used in the case of storms or power outages. Removes 200+ unsafe contaminants and leaves you with water that tastes so clean and good! We use the Big Berkey for our family of 4.
