Press Samples (Affiliated Links)

There are two new all natural, eco-friendly, paraben and toxin-free personal care lines that were recently introduced to the marketplace, and they are both well worth considering. Little Twig is a baby skincare line, and Eco Me offers safe and delightfully scented household products.

While Little Twig products were formulated for the delicate skin of babies, their products are so wonderful that they are happily used by all members of the family.
Little Twig Calming Lavender Baby Wash is an all-natural blend of "soothing lavender, restorative chamomile and gentle bubbles" that turn your tub into "a sanctuary of tranquil bath time bliss."  It provides aromatherapeutic benefits that are calming and relaxing, and that encourage a better night’s sleep for babies and adults. It is also wonderful when used as a shower gel, and I found that it even did an exemplary job as a shaving gel for my underarms and legs. It leaves skin soft, hydrated and smooth. The scent is not in the least bit pungent, but instead it is a mellow lavender that delights the senses.

Eco-Me Natural Plant Extract Dish Soap in Lemon Fresh is hands down my very favorite dish soap. This earth-friendly, lemon scented wonder is gentle on the hands, but is also highly effective at thoroughly cleaning even the most dirty dishes. I have never smelled such a lovely lemon dish soap as this one, and it is so pleasant that the experience of washing dishes no longer feels like a necessary chore. While I use the dishwasher, I do have pots and pans that require hand-washing, and this is now my go-to dish soap for cleaning them. I will be sure to pick up another bottle at Whole Foods when I finish this one.

Say goodbye to dirty dishes with this all-natural, earth-friendly soap featuring food-grade and plant -based ingredients that are tough on grease, but gentle on hands.  And, it’s non-toxic, so it’s safe to use on baby and kids’ dishes too!
