non-toxic body and cleaning products

What you use in your home and on your body is directly associated with your overall wellness and long term health. It is important to do a little homework and find products that are free of known carcinogens and toxins. For information on non-toxic body and cleaning products you can reference these websites below and check out my personal recommendations.

In general look for products that are free of:

Soaps

Chandrika Bath Soap Ayurvedic, 75g, 10 Pack

Good Soap! It’s only ingredients are: Coconut Oil, Wild Ginger, Lime Peel Oilm, Hydnocarpus Oil, Orange Oil, Sandalwood Oil. It has a “Irish Spring” color and a very pleasant smell that doesn’t linger on your skin (like chemical fragrances do).

25 Oz Dishmate Dish Liquid Free and Clear 1 unit

Jason Powersmile Toothpaste, Powerful Peppermint, 6 Ounce (Pack of 4)

Floride-free toothpaste- a MUST. See my post on this topic. Buy a pack of 4 for $20 = only $5.00 a tube – that’s about $2-3 less than they sell for in our health food stores here on Big Island. And you don’t have to run to the store every time you run out! You just need to reorder when you are on your last tube.

Foundation:

Gabriel Color Moisturizing Liquid Foundation Natural Beige

Deodorant:

For a natural deodorant that works, use Crystal roll-on or spray bottle and add a few drops of organic lemongrass essential oil to the top of the roll on or inside the spray bottle every few days. Works just as good as store bought deodorants, although you may want to apply it 2-4 x a day if you are very very active. Be careful not to put too much lemongrass or your armpits will be burning for a good half hour.

Lemongrass (Large 4 ounce) Best Essential Oil

Crystal Body Deodorant Roll-On, Unscented, 2.25 Ounce

Shampoo and Conditioner:

These are important to choose wisely because you use them 1-2x per day! Find shampoos and conditioners with no fragrance or a mild fragrance that washes away and doesn’t linger around.

Desert Essence: Organics Hair Care Shampoo, Coconut 8 oz (3 pack)

Everyone Sulfate-Free Hair Conditioner, Nourish, 20.3 Ounce

Castor Oil

Castor oil is an age-old natural remedy for reducing inflammation and healing. This product is the best I have come across for chapped lips. It is also great to use for facial cleaning along with another carrier oil. Check out: http://www.theoilcleansingmethod.com.

Note about Amazon links:

The titles and images are Amazon links. Each time a reader clicks the link and purchases anything on Amazon, I get a small small percentage of that sale. Living in a rural community on Big Island, Amazon prime has been a huge tool in helping me find ways to save money and find exactly what I want. I know buying local is ideal (and I do everyday) but I prefer Amazon Prime for many items for a few reasons:
