Right now as you read this page, there are about 700 chemicals coursing through your body, many of which likely came from the cleaning supplies and personal care products that line store shelves.¹
Seven. Hundred. How is that even remotely ok? These chemicals disrupt hormones, cause cancer and create a whole host of problems not only for people, but animals and the environment as well.
Needless to say, you know you want to start using non-toxic personal care products.
But what if you don’t want to DIY them all? Rest assured, there are several incredible options available.
Here are my favorites, from head to toe:
Created by yours truly and sold in my online shop, The Balm is an all-natural, multipurpose remedy that does ALL THE THINGS. Seriously. It soothes skin, moisturizes, eases sore muscles, reduces the appearance of scars, makes new tattoos happy and so much more. There’s a reason it’s called The Balm.
doTERRA shampoo and conditioner
While I normally wash my hair with just water (say what!?), the rest of my family uses this shampoo and conditioner. It smells great, gets everything clean and is safe for color-treated hair. I love the bigger bottles with the pumps.
Verage Skin Care system
I place a high priority on my skin. Plus I have the tendency to be vain (I’m a Leo). So I have no problem treating myself to a great skincare system.
I’ve been using Verage for a few years now and even my husband noticed a difference after just a few weeks. It makes my skin feel supple and hydrated (even in our super dry climate).
Holy long eyelashes, Batman! I got this mascara because it was all-natural and highly recommended by a friend and LOVE it because it makes my lashes look soooooo long. Plus it comes off pretty easy.
Beautycounter cream blush
I love this stuff because a little goes a long way (consequently, it lasts a long time). It’s smooth and creamy and gives just the right shade of pink (I wear hibiscus).
Everyday Minerals Loose Powder
This has been a favorite for years. It goes on light and can be layered for extra coverage.
Beautycounter Lip Sheer
I’ve recently gotten brave enough to wear red lipstick. Ok, it’s a pinkish red – I’m not quite there yet. I love the Lip Sheer from Beautycounter. It’s not drying and the color stays put.
doTERRA On Guard Toothpaste
I’ve made my own tooth powder and clay toothpaste. But this is what I always fall back to. It makes my mouth feel super clean and I love the protecting essential oils that double as a breath freshener.
Primally Pure Activated Charcoal deodorant
This is the only deodorant that has kept my husband’s odor at bay. And if you’ve ever been next to him in a workout or on a semi-warm day, you know what a big deal that is.
Bohemian Peddler Activated Charcoal deodorant – NO baking soda
I was super excited about the Primally Pure deodorant … until it gave me a rash from the baking soda. Why must my skin be so sensitive?! Thankfully, my friend, Holli, was quick to whip up her own activated charcoal deodorant sans the irritating baking soda. (Sadly, it’s not strong enough for my husband.)
doTERRA body wash and bar soap
When I run out of my own homemade bar soap, I fall back on two doTERRA products:
- Refreshing Body Wash: Because it smells AMAZING. Get it here.
- Moisturizing Bath Bar: Also because it smells awesome and for the great lather for shaving. Get it here.
As you can tell, I’m a HUGE fan of doTERRA. If you’d like to buy their products AND save 25% on all your orders, I invite you to become a wholesale member.
You can fill out the application and choose a starter kit that will save you lots here.
Pacifica Beauty Cactus & Kale Oil Free Recovery Lotion
I’m super picky about lotion. Like, if I use anything, I typically have to wash it off my hands immediately because I hate the way it feels. Weird, I know. But I like this stuff. A lot. It’s super light but still hydrating and works great all over the body.
That’s about the extent of the personal care products we use. Our bathroom cabinets are delightfully bare and these all suit our needs very well.
It doesn’t take much to care for your body head to toe and these pre-made items make using natural personal care products super easy.
