‘Tis the season for dry, itchy, dull skin! If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know I’m particular about what I put in or on my body. Skin is the largest organ in our bodies, absorbing 60% of what touches it– that’s more than we absorb through ingesting. I have yet to find a good body moisturizer that meets my standards for safety and that I like, so I was intrigued when Grace Green Beauty reached out to see…

Our kids go barefoot most of the time but when they wear shoes, we like a minimalist design with a low profile which promotes natural foot movement and healthy foot development. I first discovered Soft Star shoes when Judah was a baby. They contain no toxic chemicals, dyes, or pollutants – only natural materials are used in these handmade kicks. Soft Star is also one of the most environmentally and socially responsible companies out there. The Child Sandal was a perfect summer shoe and the Vegan Hotcake moccasins became a…

We recently moved into a sweet little house with plenty of citrus trees. Among these is a bright and cheerful kumquat tree. Kumquats are often eaten raw and have a sweet edible rind and tart juicy center. Known to bring good luck and prosperity, I wanted to honor these little gems by making a kumquat marmalade to share with you! Kumquat fruits are only in season during certain times of the year depending where you live. Ripe kumquats should be yellow…

Non Toxic Shop™ Synergy Skin Care Review & Giveaway

September 12, 2012
Synergy Skin Care Prize Pack

Many companies with “natural” products on the market today focus on telling you what toxic ingredients they don’t contain, instead of revealing the toxic ingredients they do contain.  This is known as greenwashing.  For example, some companies will label their products paraben-free but use an alternative preservative such as phenoxyethanol which is almost as toxic as using parabens! The best way to ensure you are purchasing truly non-toxic cosmetics and skin care products is by visiting the Environmental Working Group’s Skin…

By Nieves “C” Perfect Skin Review & Giveaway

May 22, 2012

I was immediately drawn to By Nieves handmade natural body care products and was equally intrigued by her story. Born by candlelight on the Canary Island of La Palma to vagabond parents, Nieves doesn’t remember hitchhiking across Europe as a baby – but her nomadic youth is unforgettable. For the better part of her childhood, Nieves traveled the West Coast of California with pack donkeys alongside her father, a folk musician and renegade intellectual. Because of her upbringing in the counterculture, she…
