Archive for Going green
Today is Earth Day and it really makes me think of all the ways I try to help the earth. A few things I do is use green cleaning products (that avoids putting harmful chemicals back into the ground), use refillable water bottles instead of plastic, recycling everything I can, use cloth bags for shopping, drive a hybrid (I love my Prius!) and eat organic food (organic farming avoids putting pesticides into the earth, using natural methods instead.)
Another thing I do to go green is use natural and organic beauty and skin care products. In turn I am not only helping the environment by using chemical-free products, I am also helping myself by not putting those chemicals into my system.
So on this Earth Day let’s take a moment to think about all the things we do to help the earth. I would love to know what you’ve done to go green or what natural beauty products you use. Feel free to leave me a comment.
When I tell people I live an organic lifestyle, I usually get the same response, “Oh, I can’t afford it.” But when you think about the question, “Can you afford to go organic?” it leads you to the question, “Can you afford not to?” Believe me, I feel your pain. I’m a teacher trying to live organically. I had to make a choice and it was made for me when I read Kevin Trudeau’s Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About. This book changed my life. I had already started going organic slowly (that’s the way to go.) But when I read this important book, I went the rest of the way.

It’s my birthday today and I just wanted to put up a short post. I am also celebrating the last day of school too! (I am a teacher in my other life…lol.)
My birthday wish is to reach more and more women (and men too, for that matter) learn about the toxic ingredients in their daily personal care products. It’s my mission to help people make better beauty choices and learn how toxins and disease can be avoided. I appreciate your support in this and ask that you bookmark, share, and forward my blog posts so we can reach more and more people. I am enjoying this journey helping women go green with their beauty routine and I look forward to convincing everyone that it is “easy being green!”
Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching! Do you already know what you’re getting for Mom? For that matter, for mom, grandma, auntie, and sisters? Here are some new ideas for you to help the special women in your life go green with their beauty routines!
A great way to show them you care is to educate them about the toxicity of their beauty products. Our moms are probably still using the same products they used 30 years ago. Do they know about the diseases linked with many of the ingredients in personal care products? Help them out by pointing them to toxicbeautyblog.com and by getting them started in the right direction with greener and safer beauty products. Here are a few ideas.
Commercial perfume has dangerous hormone-mimicing phthalates in them. Mama doesn’t need any of that! Aubrey Organics has 4 delightful all natural fragrances for the special mom in your life. They are free of chemicals and designed especially for sensitive skin. Choose from Light Citrus Floral, Musk, Ocean Waters, or Spring Floral. At just $21.50 for a 2 oz spray atomizer, this is sure to please Mama’s senses!
Anti-aging Skin Solutions
Your mom will love you if you get her Aubrey Organics Lumessence Lift Firming Cream With CoQ10 Liposomes. It’s a fantastic moisturizer and face lift in a bottle! Give your mom the gift of firmer, smoother, and younger looking skin. And it’s made with all natural ingredients.

Packages are available for daily skin care, anti-aging, and anti-aging wrinkle control. Hydrating, safe, natural ingredients are coupled with essential oils to please the nose and spirit. Or choose organic body butters with essential oils in lavender, sweet orange, or unscented.

Pure Complexions is one of my favorite online natural beauty stores. They carry only safe, non-synthetic, detergent free skin care, body care, cosmetics, fragrance, aromatherapy, home products, and pet care products. They cater to sensitive skin. This is a great gift idea if you’re really clueless about what to buy for Mom. You can purchase a gift certificate in $30, $50, $75, and $100 denominations.
If you were racking your brain for what to get mom on this special day, I hope I’ve made it a bit clearer for you. Moms have done so much for us….now it’s time to give back to Mom. Help all the mothers in your life be safer with their daily personal care routine. It may be the most precious gift of all.
Stay natural…stay beautiful…go green!
