Trying New Things (Organic)

Hello Everyone,

Today is going to just be a quick little post about natural products that I am trying. I have been reading and watching a lot about natural living. I believe it is important but it will be a slow process for us all. 

I am starting with these natural candles that I found at my neighborhood grocery store. These are called Nature's Own Natural Candle. I found these in our cleaning section and wanted to give them a try. Now they are not as powerful as the other candles that I use but they are lightly scented. They do smell wonderful and burn quite well. I purchased the Wild Tuberose (smells like roses) and White Thyme and Tangerine. 

Next is this Ultra Downy Nature Blends- Plant Base Softener. It smells DIVINE! I purchased the rosewater and aloe scent. We love it! Now I must admit I have not used fabric softener in years! Everything I purchased made us itch! We have been using this for a month and now I believe that I can't live without it. It was a great find and did I mention it was plant-based!

And last on my list is this Simple Truth Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Cooking Spray. I use cooking spray every day and then it dawned on me that maybe I should try some organic spray. I love it and did notice a change in taste with my food. 

I hope you all enjoyed these products and if you have found something organic that you would like to share please do so in the comments section! I love reading about all your home ideas!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Hello Mrs. Shockley,
    I have been using Mrs.Meyers multipurpose cleaner in my home. I used to wait until my girls would go to bed to clean because what I was using before was rather toxic. Not anymore! I have taught my 9 year old to clean her bathroom and I don't have to worry about her inhaling toxic chemicals. Not to mention some of the scents are quite wonderful.

    1. Hello Mya,
      I love Mrs. Meyer's all purpose cleaners. I really need to get some of her autumn scents. I heard those are good. Your 9 year old cleans her bathroom? How fabulous! I agree with you about the harsh scents. I have been trying to find some for my daughter and I to use. I am truly inspired to hear that your 9 year is cleaning her space. That is wonderful to hear!
