One of few books on this topic

Posted

Pros: Real life stories, real expectations

Cons: 16 years old

I bought this book on sale, because I've never seen another like it. Most pregnancy books are for first-time moms and what they experience. Rarely do you get any instruction about what happens with baby #2 and how different those pregnancies can be. She has some good perspectives from moms in there and shares out of her own experience as well. This is an older book. I'm not sure if there is a more edition.

A must have for caring for you family naturally

Posted

Pros: Easy to use, explains well

Cons: None

I have this book out on what seems like "permanent" loan from the library. Essentially, I need to buy it, because it is an incredible wealth of knowledge about how to keep your family healthy using homeopathy. I have used several of the suggestions to cure ear infection, sore throat, and other maladies. The categorizing is common sense and makes the book very easy to use. There are also instructions on how to build your own natural first aid kit. Fantastic book.

Okay lip balm

Posted

Pros: pomegranate, natural

Cons: not organic

This lip balm is not my favorite. It felt a lot heavier and waxier than the regular Burt's Bees lip balm. Also, natural is not a regulated term yet, so I'm not exactly sure what all is going into this product. It's an okay lip balm, but there are better ones out there that don't have questionable ingredients.

This smells good

Pros: Organic, great scent, easier shave

Cons: none

We got a free sample of this shaving cream and my husband tried it out. I really like the "manly" clean scent. It's not overwhelming, but lingers nicely after the shave. My husband reported that it makes for a smooth shave. I think we'll be investing in the full size version of this product.

Delightful lip balm

Posted

Pros: essential oils, organic, yummy mint flavor

Cons: none

This is my new favorite lip balm. It is organic and uses pure essential oils. My lips always feel very soft and have a nice, light, minty feel to them. I can whole-heartedly recommend this lip balm and know that you'll find it's superior to others too!

Healing cream for cuticles

Posted

Pros: Very effective, nice scent

Cons: not organic

This was a gift that my husband has especially appreciated. He used to work construction and his hands, cuticles especially, would get very dry and torn up. The cuticle cream would help to moisturize and repair his jagged cuticles. We like it a lot and it's lemony scent. If only it were organic...

One of my favorite lip balms

Posted

Pros: Nice flavor, works instantly

Cons: not organic

I really enjoy the minty flavor of this balm. It makes my breath feel a little fresher. The balm is very healing and works wonders on my dry lips. I find this to be a very affordable lip balm. The only thing that would make it better is if it were made of organic materials.

Effective conditioner

Posted

Pros: Great smell

Cons: Didn't really add shine to my hair

Again, this conditioner smells just as good as the shampoo and the scent blissfully lasts on your hair for a good long while. The conditioner moisturized my hair without weighing it down, nor did it leave my locks feeling greasy soon after. I love that Desert Organics makes their products with such pure, chemical-free ingredients. You can definitely feel good using this product. 

great smell

Posted

Pros: Smells great, organic, cleans hair well

Cons: pricey

This red raspberry has a sweet, fun scent that lingers on your hair long after you've washed it. This is a pretty good organic shampoo. There is no compromise with harmful ingredients. You get pure goodness to wash your hair with. My hair is thick and prone to oiliness, but this shampoo would keep my hair from getting super oily for two days (which is a plus in my book). The price is still pretty expensive though.

If I could give this lotion 10 stars I would!

Posted

Pros: Organic, nourishing, no harmful chemicals

Cons: pricey

What's not to like about this lotion? It's organic, has no parabens, SLS, phthalates, artificial fragrances, colors, silicones, EDTA, glycol, or petroleum ingredients. You can feel good wearing this lotion knowing it's safe and that the manufacturing supports wind power. I love this lotion! It's very moisturizing and has a great coconut scent.
