Ok. So now I have gotten into my Fall routine. It’s mainly teach, shop, cook, try to stay healthy, have a bit of fun…repeat.
If you are like me…you are probably ready for a break—a bit of a regroup, as we head into the Winter and all the Holidays!
I totally recommend taking a bit of time for yourself, mama, and find some little changes you can make that will nurture your body and spirit as the days get colder. And, I have a treat from the perfect spot to buy eco-friendly baby products- Ecomom. (They have cool stuff for moms, too)
This Fall, I have struggled with our going organic thing—I am still very committed to it and determined to feed my family pure, healthy things. I am proud that my cooking and shopping has changed dramatically.
I am also excited that a my green lifestyle is actually becoming a habit and I am starting to internalize some of these ideas—to the point where I am taking better care of myself.
Lately, I do not have to run and get the computer and “the recipe” to make a little sugar scrub for the shower—I will squeeze a bit of lemon and mix in some olive oil and make a little paste with my organic sugar. It works so well and smells heavenly.
I use a deodorant that is a spray of mineral salts. My Happy Mama Spray is still not giving me a headache….and I am oh, so in love with my Terralina skincare stuff…so much so that I finally went ahead and tossed my Clinique!
My newest luxury is to have a cup of green tea while I let my Farmaesthetics Rosehips and Clay Mint mask set. Who knew going organic could be such a pleasure?
“Healthy living doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Small steps matter, and make a big difference.” Ecomom says they “ Make it Easy.” And they did!
I was so glad I got the mask…the simple blend of organic ingredients did clear and smooth my skin. Technically, this may be called “decongesting the skin” but whatever…it felt great! I also loved the charming bottle. Here is a bit about the mask:
100% natural Vitamin C infusion and extraction mask to purify and decongest the skin.
A potent blend of organically grown peppermint leaves and rosehips, working together with kaolin clay, to wick away oil and bring down inflammation. Especially good for minimizing pore size and spot-treating breakouts.
Peppermint also cools the skin, settling irritation; while organic rosehips, nature’s most potent source of vitamin C, infuses the skin with restorative benefits in it’s most accessible whole herb form.
Nature’s perfect mask to decongest, deeply cleanse the skin, cool and calm all skin types.
Anyway, I really recommend changing things up and taking a bit of time for yourself to try some new things. Try a bit of homemade sugar scrub…dump some of those overly scented products!
I want to share some of this organic fun I’m having with you. I was so pleased that Ecomom offered to do a giveaway towards a product on her site.
There are tons of wonderful products for eco-concious moms showcased on Ecomom, from beauty to toys to clothing and gifts—all eco-friendly, all safe for your family. I love just browsing around the site, the photos make me want to try all kinds of new things and the prices are excellent—many of the items can be found elsewhere—but for more money.
