How many natural products do you use in your home? Over the past few months I have slowly started to change over the products we use in our home to more natural and safe alternatives. I've found that beauty products have been my hardest challenge. (I just can't give up my make up....yet!)
|Our little garden gnome had to get in the picture!|
When I saw Jack and Audreys Organic Baby and Beauty Products post her shampoo bars the other day I just knew I had to try one! I sent the owner, Sasha a message and explained that I have never used one before and told her the type of hair I had. She explained that using a shampoo bar is super easy, just rub in on like a bar of soap. She also gave me a recipe for a great conditioner rinse to use after (chamomile tea, apple cider vinegar and some essential oil). Sasha also sent some of her Natural Sunscreen to try out too!
I received the shampoo bar in the mail and let me tell you, it smells great! A nice light fresh scent. I was worried it would have too strong of a smell as some do (I'm not a fan of patchouli oil!) So I've been using the shampoo bar for about 2.5 weeks now. My hair feels great, although it did go through a 'detox' at first. And it's safe to use on my daughters hair as well. (List of ingredients at the end of the post) One more product changed over in our home!
I'm loving this sunscreen! This can be used every day as a cream under your make-up. It goes on nice and light and rubs in great (doesn't leave that white greasy residue) Always a good idea to wear sunscreen on your face every day, even when the sun is behind the clouds! I would definitely recommend this as it is all natural (no chemicals!) List of ingredients at the end of the post :)
So if you are looking to add some more natural products to your home, I highly recommend Sasha at Jack and Audreys Organic Baby and Beauty Products. She is so passionate about making her products with all natural and safe ingredients. She has answered all my questions about the ingredients used and always has great advice in how to make my choices more 'natural'. Check out her product list as it is huge! Everything from soaps and creams to bug spray and lip balm! (I've used the honey lip balm as well....it is my FAV!)
I will be placing more orders with Sasha as I love to support small businesses, especially moms working from home! (her two little kids are super cute!....this is where her business name came from!) Just send her a message on her Facebook page to order (she ships from Chilliwack, BC) or visit her at one of many events she will be attending!
