For Eco-Conscious

Cotton shopping bag

It’s environmentally friendly to use a reusable bag and cotton is my favorite, skin- and food-friendly material. The one of my choice is moreover made in the USA (probably ethic working conditions for employees) from recycled cotton.
Wash, reuse. And don’t forget to take it when you go out!

Buy on Amazon.

Wooden comb by The Body Shop

I’ve bought it more than five years ago and use it daily. It looks like new. I don’t feel any need to replace it with any other comb or brush. It’s a perfect item for me.
Detangling. To use on dry or wet hair. Helps to distribute an oil or another conditioner.

Classic safety razor

It works like a plastic, disposable one. But for a metal one you pay only once (blades are very cheap and metal = recyclable) and you don’t add waste.
Butterfly opening makes changing blades 100% easy.

Natural oils

As alternative for cosmetics
COMING SOON: I’m working on a series about various natural oils and their benefits for the skin. They can moisturize, protect from harmful radiation, improve hair condition and so much more…
One example: poppy seed oil

Buy on Amazon.

For Health-conscious

Coconut oil

I use it to so many purposes that I had to write an entire article about it. If you want to enjoy its all benefits, remember to look for an unrefined and cold-pressed one. Here where I live, even shops labeled eco, natural, healthy, organic offer only refined oil.
My articles: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Buy on Amazon.

Raspberry seed oil

I use it as an alternative for sunscreen for me, my husband and our boys.
Remember to look for cold-pressed and unrefined oil.

Vitamins D3 + K2

D3 is important not only for our mood, but with K2 it cares for our tooth and bones.

Chlorella

With chlorella, I get minerals and vitamins that my body needs. So it gives me what I need but also takes what is harmful to me out. Chlorella purifies body from toxins.

For ReadersFor Parents

Woven wrap baby carrier

The wrap I’ve bought before having my first son is three years old, looking as new and used with the younger son. I wouldn’t sell it. Even when the older son didn’t need to be carried and he was the only child, I used the material as a cover on my couch or as a blanket when we went out.

Look for a 100% cotton material.

For ReadersFor Fashionists

Make up by Inglot

I don’t wear make up every day and I use just a few products. Some of them are by Polish company Inglot that offers some products in refilable containers (called Freedom System).
