Healthy living and green living are both near and dear to my heart and they go so well together. My health and the health of our planet matter to me in a huge way on a very personal level so it is only natural that I enjoy trying new eco-friendly, natural, and organic products. There are a ton of great organic brands out there but today I will share with you 10 brands that I recently received samples from, most in conjunction with a ShiftCon program. Several of these brands are old favorites and several of them were completely new to me.
10 Natural & Organic Brands You Will Love
Would you like to welcome 2017 in a healthier, safer and more environmentally friendly way? Then you will really enjoy this list of natural and organic products. You can trust the quality and safety of their ingredients and enjoy trying something new.
I always already familiar with the BeautyCounter brand but I had not tried the actual products. The BeautyCounter travel collection includes shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand cream and a sample SPF 30 sunscreen, all wrapped up in a cute BeautyCounter pouch. I really dig the whole principle of safer ingredients in our personal care and I am actually considering becoming a consultant myself now that I have tried the products first hand and really enjoy them.
- Organic Valley
Of course, Organic Valley is an old favorite. I always buy organic dairy without exception. However, this was still a new product to me because Organic Valley has just recently introduced the convenient 6-ounce Grassmilk Yogurt Cups available in Strawberry, Wild Blueberry, Plain and Vanilla. The 100 percent grass-fed yogurt cups appeal to people looking for premium yogurt with extraordinary flavor, nutritional excellence and grab-and-go convenience. They really are a creamy, delicious treat and I found the Organic Valley Whole Cream on Top Grassmilk, Half Gallon, at my grocery store too and I just love it.
Boiron is another old favorite. My mother used to use it on me and I still use it for my family. Borion USA helps you be prepared for the inevitable colds and flu in your household with homeopathic remedies. Oscillococcinum is for body aches, fever, chills and fatigue. Children’s Chestal syrup with natural honey is for common coughs. Children’s Coldcalm Pellets are for sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, and minor sore throat. Note, these uses have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
- Nest Fresh
I love that Nest Fresh Eggs are always cage free. In addition to the cage free eggs that started NestFresh, they now offer Non-GMO Free Range, Organic, Pasture Raised, and Omega-3 eggs (all still cage free).
- Plant Therapy
I absolutely love essential oils. My grandmother turned me onto them over 20 years ago. The Plant Therapy USDA Certified Organic Essential Oils are so nice to have on hand and they have so many uses. Plus, they are fabulous for making DIY beauty products.
- Fresh Wave
The Fresh Wave products were all new to me but I really love them. They remove odors using natural ingredients without harsh chemicals and without heavy perfumes. Fresh Wave natural odor removing products are a blend of plant extracts and water and they work to remove odors from your life. The odor removing gel is a new favorite of mine and I think I need to have one for each of my children’s rooms and my kitchen all of the time.
- Pukka Tea
I love good tea. I received a box of organic Love Pukka Tea and I thought it was quite nice. I have to say that the dark pink box color led me to expect a more bold blend of flavors but it is instead a very relaxing, mild flavored tea.
I love this brand because they are all about delivering quality vitamins in from real food so you can actually absorb them and benefit from them. I received NonGMO Verified Balanced B Complex supplements (super useful for energy, mood, and immunity), NonGMO Verified Blood Builder, and Turmeric Strength for Whole Body (great for reducing inflammation). Really good stuff.
- Molly’s Suds
Molly’s Suds laundry products are made with only earth and plant derived ingredients. Molly’s Suds was started in 2008 by pediatric nurse & mother of four, Monica Leonard, who was inspired by the loss of her stillborn daughter, Molly. You can learn what Monica discovered and why she chose to create a truly safe laundry products line on the Molly’s Suds website. It is a sad story made beautiful.
- Goddess Garden Organic
It is always a great feeling to use organics for my facial care and I am loving the Goddess Garden Face the Day Sunscreen & Firming Primer!
- Bonus- Lovetica
I have enjoyed trying Lovetica’s residue-free natural deodorant without the use of harsh chemicals and toxic antiperspirants.
- Bonus- Batteroo
This clever product makes a great bonus that I just have to share because I love that it is so eco-friendly. This simple little reusable sleeve for your disposable batteries works to significantly extend battery life. Pretty nifty gadget!
- Bonus- KobiKids
The SAFEST deodorant available for kids and teens. Gentle yet powerful formula with no aluminum, no parabens, no phthalates, no GMOs, no fake stuff.
I think you will definitely enjoy trying these natural and organic brands and adding them into your routine in place of less healthy choices. Which ones have you tried already? Which ones do you want to try the most?
