The Best Sourdough Glazed Donuts

Beyond eating real food, I care about what I put on my skin and hair as well! It’s just as important, so I am here to share some of my favorite Natural Personal Care Products!

I went live on my FB page last week in a two part series on my personal care products. The response was overwhelming so I wanted to put all of that info here where it can be accessed easily!

I will post the video below so you can hear me ranting and raving about these products!

  • Earthpaste – I have been using this for years and it’s not what my kids use. It’s made out of clay and can be ingested safely. Our favorite is the LEMON flavor!
  • OnGuard toothpaste – last year I switched to this toothpaste and LOVE it so much! I feel it’s extra whitening and feels so fresh in my mouth. It contains oils that are excellent for oral health.


If you’ve been around with me for a while, you know I make my own whipped coconut oil that is my number one and only moisturizer! These are the ingredients I use. It’s SO easy to throw together!

Immortelle – this is an oil blend from doterra that is incredible for the skin. I use a tiny bit under my eyes and around my mouth every.single.day. It helps with puffiness, wrinkles, fine lines, pimples, you name it! It’s expensive, but one roller lasts me almost a year. I recently discovered another oil that I am switching over too for this purpose. I will fill you in on it when I have given it a good trial run!


Lush Lip Scrub and lip balm – these are easy and effective. ‘Nuff said. I have never worn lipstick and don’t foresee me ever wearing it, so this is good for me!

My MONAT products have changed my hair forever. That sounds dramatic, but it’s true. After having four babies, my hair was just not the same. It was limp, I lost a lot of it that never grew back, and it was really scraggly on the ends so I kept cutting it short. The video below describes in detail my fight with my hair and how MONAT changed that.

For product details, take my beauty quiz.  would love to help you and your hair and skin!
