A Family, Beauty, Health and Lifestyle Blog
This year start your spring cleaning from the inside out starting with your cleaning products! When it comes to your family, you can never be too careful. We all love a clean home, but what if the products that we trust to clean our homes contain harmful ingredients? It is actually kind of scary, because your loved ones are coming into contact with as well as breathing in these possibly toxic chemicals.
I got to thinking about what kinds of changes I could make that could help to safeguard my family, and decided to start with my cleaning products.
I discovered Truce, a line of chemical free cleaning products that work just as well, if not better than my regular cleaning products.
Truce cleaning products offers a wide variety of items to cover all your cleaning needs, from all-purpose cleaner, wood cleaner and scouring powder, to get your home sparkly clean without the use of any harmful ingredients. Truce only uses SIMPLE and NATURAL ingredients, like borax, essential oils, baking soda, distilled white vinegar and aloe vera, and since they have nothing to hide, they share every ingredient on their labels.
I was given the chance to put a few of their products to the test:
Truce Natural All Purpose Cleaner -It seems that I am constantly wiping down the counter tops in my kitchen. I cringe at all of the times I would use chemically-laden products in the area that food is prepared!
This All-Purpose Cleaner can wonderfully clean your home and office using only safe, non-toxic ingredients in one simple formula. From your floors to the ceiling, you can use the All-Purpose Cleaner for all your cleaning needs. Wipe away messes on those sticky counter tops, remove spots and streaks from windows or mirrors, and get the grime off your shower walls with this one cleaner that is effective on all non-porous surfaces.
It not only works just as effectively as my previous cleaners, but smells like peppermint! I love it!
Truce Laundry Powder- Our laundry comes in contact with our skin, daily. How frightening to think about all of the possibly harmful chemicals that are in our regular laundry detergent!
Wear the freshest smelling and cleanest clothes without exposing your skin to nasty chemicals. The Laundry Powder from Truce is perfect for those with sensitive skin, allergies, or conditions prone to dermatological irritation. Avoid the crazy chemicals and toxins found in other laundry products; you deserve a safe, simple laundry detergent formula that works. this potent detergent can clean heavily soiled clothes and it works in areas prone to hard water. The natural oxygen bleach works to keep whites bright and colors bold without fading. The Laundry Powder is gentle enough for washing organic fibers and it is biodegradable and earth-friendly.
My clothes come out of the wash much fresher and cleaner with Truce Laundry Powder- than when I used my previous detergent. Plus, a little goes a long way!
Room & Pillow Spray- It seems that I am always using room freshener sprays. That is the scariest of all to me, because with my regular room freshening spray brand, I was actually spraying chemicals into the air that my family breathes! I didn't even think about it! I feel horrible for that.
Luckily, Truce Room and Pillow Sprays are here to help. From stinky trash or a foul microwave to that not-so-fresh bathroom air or a stale closet where you hide that old pair of shoes, Truce can help clean out some of the stench.
These Safe and Simple Room and Pillow Sprays clean and freshen the air around your home, car, and office while leaving a natural and pleasing scent. While most other home air plug-ins, sprays, candles, and car fresheners contain harmful chemicals hiding behind the word “Fragrance” on a list of ingredients, Truce is always transparent on where their fresh scents come from: aromatherapeutic essential oils. Extra ingredients containing harmful chemicals are never added into any Truce products because all our ingredients are simple, effective, and natural.
The Revitalizing Spray is a combination of lavender and lemongrass that is sure to rejuvenate and refresh the air around you. The Energizing Spray is a mixture of citrus and lemongrass that helps vitalize you and give you that extra boost to make it through the day. The Soothing Spray has a calming effect by combining the smell of lavender and citrus.
I still have the need for an air freshener, due to when I burn my cooking, or when someone 'stinks' up the air. Thankfully, I no longer need to worry about poisoning my loved ones! Truce Room and Pillow Spray keeps my home smelling fresh and clean. My favorite is the Soothing Spray. It makes the atmosphere nice and calm, while refreshing the air. I love to spray it on the carpet to freshen any stale odors, too.
So, clean out the cabinets during your spring cleaning and ditch the chemical filled products that can be harmful to your family. www.truceclean.com
Earth Day is right around the corner (Monday, April 22) and celebrated across the globe to bring awareness and demonstrate support for environmental protection. Each year billions of people around the globe celebrate Earth Day by turning their attention to the environment and ways to protect it. We all get caught up in our everyday lives, and “disposal” living, and Earth Day represents a great way to take a step back and think about our natural habitat, this wonderful earth that we call home.
Thankfully there is a strong movement towards natural vs. synthetic ingredients as well as environmentally safe and sustainable packaging and consumers now have many options when making beauty purchases. For example, by choosing natural vs. synthetic ingredients you not only make a healthy choice for your individual health, but you also make a healthy choice for our environment.
Rahua® by Amazon Beauty® Inc.’s goal is to change the way people look at beauty products so people understand that they can have highly effective, results-oriented, luxurious beauty products that are created with natural, plant-based ingredients instead of petroleum based, toxic chemicals. Through this change, we can all make a dent in cleaning up the environment by elevating oxygen in the atmosphere and reducing our carbon footprint.
What can consumers do to make a difference?
- Invest in fewer, better, cleaner products that are more concentrated with dual purpose, limiting the number of products they purchase. (Rahua’s highly concentrated formulas lower consumer consumption and the sleek design of its packaging requires less space when shipping.)
- To reduce waste, use products to completion.
- Commit before purchasing, rather than purchase and mis-use.
- Avoid the most obvious dangerous ingredients including phthalates, sulfates and parabens. (Rahua is committed choosing plant-based ingredients which are generally much safer than synthetic counterparts.)
- Read labels and do your research before purchasing products.
- Choose responsible ingredients that are effective without being harmful. (Rahua® utilizes plant-based ingredients that are safe for humans and do not pollute our environment. Rahua’s key rainforest ingredients are grown wild, hand-harvested and processed in the Amazon Rainforest.)
- Check the packaging of the product. Is it recyclable? If it’s plastic, check for the recyclable stamp and the #1, as PET #1 is the most universally recyclable packaging available. (Rahua® is committed to choosing the most environmentally logical and friendly options available to package their products and chooses natural glass whenever possible and where it makes sense for consumer usage. Glass as well as plastics are both recyclable.)
I have been using Rahua® by Amazon Beauty® Inc for about one year now, and I love them. Never before has my hair been so luxuriously healthy, beautiful and shiny. I love the fact that all of their products come from ingredients found in the Amazon forests. What could be better than clean beauty?

When you become a pregnant with a precious little life, your body no longer belongs just to you. Your body is a temple and you are sharing that temple with the tiny human you are growing. It is up to you, Mama, to protect and nurture that special little person who is trusting you to grow his or her body. You must not only nourish your body with healthful foods, but that you also make sure to use products that are safe for pregnancy!
You need to steer clear of anything that contains harmful chemicals. This also important during breastfeeding. Any product that you use on your skin can be transferred to your baby through breastfeeding.
Being a Mama is hard work! And you DO sweat, and you DO get smelly, and it is nice to find products to help you to smell fresh.
However, please be aware that the chemicals in your deodorant can get into your breast milk. After all, your underarms are in very close proximity to your breast tissue!
Thankfully, Earth Mama Deodorants are formulated to be safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding. AND they come in a cute set of four minis!
Earth Mama’s mini deodorants give you four flavors in one box! They are also travel-savvy and very cute. Pop one in your purse, the diaper bag, your gym bag or stuff ‘em in stockings with a falala – they are just that good. You get all four flavors in one fun-filled box! Refreshing ginger-lime GingerAid Deodorant, tangerine-y Bright Citrus Deodorant, naturally unscented Natural Non-Scents Deodorant, and fresh, soothing Calming Lavender Deodorant.
Think you're too sensitive for natural deodorants with baking soda? You got another think comin’! This formula was made for extra sensitive skin with the perfect balance of baking soda and magnesium. Just enough to work, not enough to hurt sensitive skin. NO propylene glycol, artificial fragrance, parabens or aluminum. Dermatologist tested and clinically tested for irritation. Better than natural – organic!
Your skin soaks it all in.
So toxic ingredients in deodorant?
That’s a hard no.
- Wash underarms well, dry thoroughly, apply your new favorite deodorant.
- Formulated especially for sensitive skin, pregnancy, breastfeeding and YOU!
- NO artificial fragrance (or natural fragrance, or botanical fragrance, in fact NO F word at all! Just organic essential oils that smell great.)
- NO propylene glycol, artificial fragrance, parabens or aluminum
- Dermatologist tested and clinically tested for irritation
- Better than natural – organic! NSF/ANSI 305 certified by Oregon Tilth in fact.
- #LoveYourLymphNodes #NoFword
All of my babies were breastfed, and thankfully, my daughter is breastfeeding her baby who was born last month. Yes, baby Reylin is my first grand daughter. We are so blessed!
My daughter, Cassidy, is a wonderful mother. She is using Earth Mama’s deodorants to stay fresh. Cassidy says that she loves them. They keep her feeling fresh. She is thankful for that, because sometimes new mamas don't get a lot of time for regular showers. Each fragrance is uplifting and helps keep baby blues at bay, and the formulas do not irritate her sensitive skin. With these four minis, it is very convenient to have one in the bathroom, one in the diaper bag, one in the car and one in her purse. (Mommies sweat a lot.)
Best of all, using Earth Mama's deodorant gives Cass one less thing to worry about, so that she has more time to focus on her sweet baby girl.
No chemicals for this precious angel!

5 Natural Solutions for your Backyard
We are heavily dependent on modern technology for almost everything. Seemingly quick and easy solution, high tech equipment has its downsides. First of all, it wastes natural resources (even in situations where it doesn’t have to). It can also lead to increased pollution.
Truth of the matter is we can do a lot with naturally made items. This is the precise reason why DIY is so popular nowadays. Not only does it save money, it also helps us avoid all the issues of modern technology.
If you wish to live naturally, without relying too much on tech, these are solutions you have to consider.
1. Rainwater barrels
Rainwater barrels were around for centuries. They aren’t anything revolutionary and that is their main charm.
As the time went by, we became spoiled and started relying solely on water provided by a local water distributor. This is really wasteful and expensive. Even if you do not wish to use rainwater for drinking or washing yourself, there are many things which can be done in your backyard if you have a barrel of free rainwater.
Like with everything else, people expanded on this idea and nowadays you can even find rainwater tanks that work submersible tank pumps. But, getting a tank and water pumps can be expensive in itself. A cheaper yet great solution would be to
buy pump from ForPumps.
2. Creating organic compost
Most families have different plants in their backyard. Whether we are talking about flowers or vegetables, they need constant care.
Now, big companies would like you to buy chemical products and use them as fertilizers. But what if you can create that same fertilizer without paying any money?
You can create an area for disposing your organic trash. This trash should be exposed to the elements which will quicken its process of decomposition. In the end, you will have free fertilizer that only costs you some space in your backyard.
Windmill works perfectly in conjunction with barrels. It provides the necessary energy for manual labor performed around the house.
Have in mind that windmills are really modern nowadays. They can be used for generating electricity for your whole home. Although this is undeniably a great solution, you can also accomplish a lot with simple old wooden windmill.
4. Vegetable garden
If you have a big family you should definitely consider planting fruit and vegetable garden.
Food prices are constantly increasing and we don’t even have any idea what we’re eating. There is a lot of organic food but it costs a lot. So, why don’t you go for simpler solution and just make food yourself?
Vegetable gardens are becoming increasingly popular in western world. This is partially due to slow economic decline many countries are experiencing. Having in mind that a lot of people lost their jobs in last 10 years and weren’t fully able to recover, this method provides a valid solution that allows homeowners to take care of their family.
5. Use old wood
This is not so much of an idea as a notion that should lead you through life.
Like most other materials, wood can be recycled. In worst case scenario all you’ll have to do is reshape it for the next object. Anyway, it definitely beats getting new planks and generally speaking, wooden material.
So, the next time you decide to tear down an object in your backyard, make sure to save that wood, place it in a shed or some other impregnable room and leave it for later use.
A lot can be accomplished by simply recycling and turning to nature.
There is no need for you to waste money when there are perfect natural solutions to be used.

I love the idea of a place that I can shop for all natural and chemical-free products all in one place! Recently, I was looking for some household cleaning products that would make my house smell wonderful for the holiday season. I was getting pretty tired of the horrible chemical smells that most cleaners leave behind. I was also very worried about how much harm those strong fumes were bringing to my family. I was thrilled to find that Pharmaca sells Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products!
Mrs. Meyer’s products use natural ingredients like aloe vera, lavender, honeysuckle, soap bark extract and more to naturally degrease pans, clean hands and wipe down countertops. Mrs. Meyer’s soaps and cleaning products are paraben free, phthalate free, phosphate free, formaldehyde free and cruelty free.
My two very favorite products from Mrs. Meyer's are Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Sunflower All Purpose Cleaner and Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Geranium Room Freshener.
Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Sunflower All Purpose Cleaner is a hard-working generalist for natural cleaning on all non-porous multi-surfaces. Safe and effective for bathroom and kitchen cleaning of floors, counters, and other surfaces. It's concentrated, hard-working and earth-friendly.
This amazing cleanser works just as well if not better than most any other product I have ever used to clean in my home. I use it on the kitchen counter tops and floors (after diluting with water.) It gets rid of grime and dirt and leaves everything clean and sparkly. The entire house smells nice and fresh. I love knowing that this product is 98% naturally derived.
Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Geranium Room Freshener contains natural essential oils and fragrance to quickly freshen any room. Comes in a non-aerosol bottle, this earth-friendly formula is such a treat!
