Earth’s Care Sweet Almond Oil

Earth's Care Sweet Almond OilIf we could pack only one item in our toilet kit, it would be a high-quality cold-pressed oil.  Our favorite this summer is Earth’s Care Sweet Almond Oil. This 100% natural oil is expeller-pressed from dried almond kernels and is rich in Vitamin E, mono-unsaturated fatty acids, proteins, potassium and zinc.

Earth’s Care Sweet Almond Oil is a great facial (and whole-body) moisturizer not just because it is light and absorbs easily, but the Vitamin E helps protect against UV radiation damage and can even reduce the appearance of sun spots and wrinkles. To maximize the moisturizing benefits of the oil, we apply it to wet skin before toweling off.

Baking Soda in the Bathroom Makes an Eco-friendly Shampoo, Deodorant, and Toothpaste!

For years I knew that baking soda had a huge variety of household applications.  We use it to make a soft scrub for the sink, we deodorize the fridge, it helps our muffins rise and can even be used as an antacid. 

But, thanks to a tip from Frugal Babe I tried baking soda as a shampoo.  When I first worked it into my hair the lack of suds and lather seemed a little strange.  Surprisingly, my hair was actually very soft and clean after the wash—as was my skin.   Since then I’ve heard that really oily hair can benefit from a quick “dry wash” with baking soda if there isn’t time for a full shampoo.  Just sprinkle the baking soda onto oily hair without wetting it, work into the roots, and brush out.
