A Family, Beauty, Health and Lifestyle Blog
It isn't too early to be thinking of Spring cleaning! It may be the middle of winter, but that is not stopping me from cleaning out cupboards, drawers and closets. I am thinking of renting a huge dumpster to toss away everything, and simplify my lifestyle! One of my New Year's resolutions is to start fresh!
When I say that I want to start fresh, this also includes using only products that are environmentally friendly as well as non-toxic. I have a baby grand daughter, and another one is due in July. I want my home to be free of not only clutter, but dangerous chemicals that could be harmful to my loved ones.
I had heard so many wonderful things about Dr. Bronner's products, and I wanted to try them for myself to find out what the hype was all about. I had heard they were known for their soaps that are good for the environment, but I did not know that they also created and sold bath and body care products.
I was given the chance to review a few of Dr. Bronner's products. I chose their liquid soap, body lotion, sugar soap, shaving soap. Here is some information about each product I received.
Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Pure-Castile Soaps are good for just about any cleaning task. Face, body, hair & food, dishes, laundry, mopping, pets—clean your house and body with no synthetic preservatives, detergents or foaming agents—none! Dilute! I am absolutely amazed at all of the uses this soap has. So far, I have used it on a damp wash cloth to dust my furniture, clean up sticky spills on my hardwood floors, and to bathe my cat. it has surpassed my expectations each time I use it. I just cannot get over the fact that I can use this miracle product on tough laundry stains as well as washing my fruit before I eat it! I love the pure peppermint scent.
Fair trade & organic sugar gives this Organic Pump Soaps a rich caramel color and sweet scent. The sugar combines with organic white grape juice to keep your skin nourished, hydrated and smooth. Organic coconut-olive-hemp oils blend for a creamy castile lather & soap making tradition! I have been using this heavenly soap in my shower. I use it to wash my face, hair and body. It works perfectly to remove my makeup without irritating my eyes. it is fabulous as a shampoo as well as a body wash! I imagine that it would be the perfect shampoo to repel lice since it contains tea tree oil. (That is not a pleasant thought, but with one child still in school,that has definitely crossed my mind.)
Get a close, comfortable shave with organic ingredients that nourish and cleanse the skin! Like organic shikakai powder from India, used there for centuries on hair and body. This Organic Shaving Soaps are great for both men and women. I simply squirt a little bit of Shaving Soap onto my hands (about the size of a nickel) and rub them together for a good lather. I apply it to my underarms as well as my legs (and bikini area-can't forget that!) and continue to rub soap into my skin, enhancing the lather so that I prepare my skin for a good, clean shave. It works perfectly in the shower, and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth.
Nourish and hydrate skin with good ingredients: organic jojoba oil to heal and soothe, organic coconut oil to moisturize, organic hemp and avocado oils to keep skin smooth and supple. Gentle enough to be used anywhere — hands, face or body. This lotion is highly emollient, so start with a small amount. I keep a bottle by my sink and always apply it after hand-washing. I also apply it from my shoulders to my feet right out of the shower, before my skin dries. Just a few squirts will cover the whole body and absorb quickly into skin. Nourishes and moisturizes organically. Massage slowly into skin for deep relaxation, always towards the heart. My skin is keep perfectly hydrated.

I love cats! I am definitely a cat person. I have had kitties all throughout my life. I love everything about them, except the messiness and odor of the litter box. Boy, am I thankful to have discovered Swheat Scoop cat litter!
In 1994, the company that created Swheat Scoop Cat Litter set out to create a litter that would be safer for pets, people and the environment without sacrificing performance.
Swheat Scoop litter contains natural wheat enzymes that destroy litter box odors on contact. These enzymes work around the clock to keep your house smelling fresh. Swheat Scoop also containsnatural wheat starches which form firm, solid clumps so you can scoop them out with ease. This makes litter box cleanups a snap. Plus, wheat litter tracks less and doesn't raise clay dust clouds when poured.
My Experience: Well, I hate to say that I did not get my cat fixed on time. She had seven kittens.( I promise you that she has an appointment to be spayed as soon as these fuzzy little creatures are weaned.) Needless to say, as these kittens are learning to use the litter box, we go through an awful lot of kitty litter. The litter box gets stinky rather quickly and needs to be changed quite often! I have used many different brands of cat litter throught my lifetime as a cat owner. I have been very frustrated at the quality of some of the litters I have used that just did not control odors. Swheat Scoop is different. I am very impressed at how effective it is in keeping my home smelling as if I do not have cats! No more embarrassing kitty odors! I love how it clumps and is easy to scoop, and I especially love that it is flushable! It truly makes life with these kittens so much easier. Even after these adorable little balls of fur are gone, I will keep buying Swheat Scoop for their mama because it is simply the best cat litter ever!!!!!
Are these little guys cute or what?
