Product Recommendations

This page serves as a quick reference for all products I have recommended as well as products I use that don’t warrant a post all their own.  Feel free to bookmark it for easy access in the future!  Each category has one or more blog post links where you will find great info regarding that product or topic.  I have also listed all products I recommend within that post just below it.  I have included promo codes I have scored for my readers in parentheses as well.

For many of these products, I have obtained affiliate links, which means I get a small commission when you purchase through my links.  I DO NOT recommend products unless I believe they fit within my safer standards.  Many of the products I use currently myself!  The commissions allow me to continue to spend time researching, sampling, and recommending safer products; so, I very much appreciate your support by shopping through these links!  For Amazon, I get commission on everything you purchase after you click one of my links!  So, if you’re feeling extra supportive, stop here and click an Amazon link (such as OXO or Pyrex under Kitchen) before starting your Amazon shopping spree 😀

Hope you find this page helpful!  I have organized by categories and sub-categories and added color coding to help make it more reader-friendly.  If you have feedback regarding ways I can improve this page, please let me know!

Skincare

Deodorants
DIY or a great ready to go option – your choice.  I more often choose the latter because I just never get to my DIY list 😬, but the recipe really is super effective and easy.
