Eco-Friendly, Organic

A Soap to Try

I know I was going to post about plants helping to freshen our homes but then I found a ‘must have’ that I want to share with you.  I am always looking for greener alternatives to use personally and around my home.  I use organic as much as I can…despite the price.  I have even turned to organic skincare…my face is healthier, but the lines are definitely creeping in!!! I need to do more research into something healthy for my face that will also melt away (not literally) the years.

As skin covers our bodies, and is a wonderful organ for soaking up any ingredient we put on it, I have been looking for a fairly well priced and effective soap that the whole family can use.  With glee I checked into one of my favorite BIG blogs The Simple Mom and discovered some pearls of wisdom and a must try product from Tsh Oxenreider. Please check out The Simple Mom for even more great ideas.  This is my next purchase:
