I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of quality time with loved ones and awesome food! ^.^ I decided last minute to throw together this guide of products that support green living as well as products that promote health and wellness. Maybe it’ll give you some gift inspiration for Christmas. Or, hey, nothing wrong with treating yourself! 🙂
P.S. I apologize in advance for my wordiness. I realized while compiling everything that if I kept that up, I’d never get this list out! I had to break it up because it got too long so stay tuned for the next part! Also, I’ll probably add more retailers to each section because I’m positive I’m forgetting a bunch.

I think one of the first green beauty skincare brands I’ve tried. Several of their products are holy grail status for me. They will be getting their own future post but seriously, you can’t go wrong with anything here. If I had to point out some stand out products off the top of my head, Dew Dab (great for cystic acne, healing acne scars) and Happy Gum Drops (this helps me pass every dental check up with flying colors).
- Now through Sunday (November 26), 15% off storewide on everything except gift certificates and current specials. Free shipping for US and Canada on orders of $100 or more. International, $15 off on orders of $200 or more.
Bend Soap Co sells a variety of goat milk soap, scented only with essential oils. They also sell bodycare and accessories. I highly suggest their all natural loofah bag made of sisal (from the agave plant) and their All Shield soap (anti-microbial). Good for if you’re seeking a gentle, nourishing cleanser that may help with skin conditions like eczema. Free shipping on US orders $50 or more.

13) The Innate Life
Cruelty free, natural, non-toxic, hand-crafted, plant based hair care. They added shampoo and conditioner a bit ago but I haven’t tried those yet.
