5 Favorite Natural Health & Beauty Products

 

RevolutionofLove.com - Five Favorite Natural Health & Beauty Products (ff_natural_beauty_logo2)Ever since Brian first got cancer, we’ve been moving away from our usual mainstream health products and trying more natural brands. Here are my current Five Favorite Natural Health and Beauty Products. I’m linking up with Efficient Momma.com for 5 Favorites.

California Baby Calendula Cream

My bambinos are well out of the diaper stage butΒ California Baby Calendula Cream is still a favorite. John-Paul tends to get little patches of eczema on his cheek and this lotion has worked well to sooth and heal it. It also smells nice, which helps since he can’t stand “the stinky stuff.”

Alba Botanica Un-Petroleum, Multi-Purpose Jelly, 3.5 Ounce

At the beginning of the school year, Andrew was having trouble with bloody noses. He always had a tendency to get one but it was getting bad. He was getting one every day for over a week. We took him to the doctor worried that it was something serious. The doctor asks us numerous questions but before running tests to rule out serious causes, he wanted us to try a simpler solution. He suspected that Andrew had sensitive nasal passages and suggested that each evening we place a little petroleum-type jelly on a cotton swab and swipe his nostrils with it before going to bed.

We bought Alba Botanica Un-Petroleum Jelly and did just as he suggested. The first night, no bloody nose. The second night, the third night, the same. For the whole month we only forgot to use the jelly twice and both of those days he got a bloody nose. Since then we swab his nose each night and he hasn’t had a bloody nose in many months. (I’ve tried it myself when I visit my family in the heat of So Cal and it works for my sensitive nose too.)

Everyone 3-in-1 Soap, Citrus plus Mint, 32 Ounce

It took a little effort to find a natural soap that was strong enough to clean up my three smelly Jedi yet not too flowery smelling to make them complain. I finally found a winner with theΒ Everyone Soap in citrus and mint that both the males and females in the family enjoy. It has a fresh citrus smell and comes in a large 32 oz dispenser so it lasts awhile.

Desert Essence Hand and Body Lotion, Tropical Coconut, 8 Fluid Ounce

I am constantly fighting dry skin and get excited when I find a lotion that works well, is not too greasy and smells nice. One of my favorites is Desert Essence Hand and Body Lotion. I especially like the smell of Tropical Coconut. It is pleasant without being so strong that it triggers my allergies.

Burt’s Bees – Deep Pore Scrub Peach & Willowbark

I picked this up about a month ago and I fell in love with it. TheΒ Burt’s Bees – Deep Pore Scrub leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, especially after a grimy day.

Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, Superfruit Blister, 4 Count

Bella and I both love Burt’s Bees products but especially their lip care. You will find lip balms in my pocket, in my car, in my purse (and most likely in the boys’ toy box.) I especially love the Grapefruit flavor!

What about you? What natural products do you like? I am always looking for recommendations so do share. πŸ™‚

  • I’ve loved the burts bees face scrub and the lib balm πŸ™‚ Thanks for linking up!

  • I am going to try that Everone Soap!

  • Jen says:

    I seriously love the Baby Bee Wash from Burt’s Bees.

  • Tacy says:

    I’m a huge Burt’s Bees fan. When we got married, we registered at a store with Burt’s Bees products so that we could stock our guest bathroom!

    • bobbi says:

      That was smart thinking, Tacy! I am glad Burt’s Bees are so mainstream now that you can find it at Target or even the local super market and don’t have to go to a specialty health store. Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

  • I LOVE Burt Bees products as well. I especially enjoy using all natural soap shampoos from Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve, Fresh As A Daisy Soaps on Etsy (Her Rosemary, Neem, and Tea Tree Oil soap really helps control the Sebborheic Dermatitis on my scalp and leaves my ultra thick, coarse wavy hair soft and manageable- my favorite soap!), and making my own remedies such as a Braggs Cider Vinegar Rinse after shampooing (Again, helps keep the SB under control and leaves my hair soft, shiny, and manageable!). I am thinking of creating a blog (and writing an e-book about these remedies) very soon. Stay tuned!

    PS. I’ve been in and out of dermatologists offices since I was nine years old due to acne, sebborheic dermatitis, ect. After experimenting on my own, I’ve discovered some natural remedies that work much better for me than anything a dermatologist could prescribe.

    Natural remedies is a favorite topic of mine! I could talk about this forever!

    You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers! XO

      I would love to read about your natural products. I think it would be a great blog idea. I will have to look up some of the products you recommended, especially the hair ones. Thanks for stopping by, Maria! πŸ™‚

  • Laura says:

    I’ll have to check out that lotion – my hands get SO dry especially in the winter.
    Burt’s Bees lip products are the best. I love the tinted lip balm – just the right amount of color and moisture for me!

    • bobbi says:

      Hi Laura, I recently tried one of the Burt Bees tinted lip balm and you’re right, they are great! Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚
