As a busy mom, running business, and living rural, I am all for easy buttons. If I can get the quality I’m looking for, delivered to me, you bet I’m going to take it. No loading the kids up, there’s 3 of them. No burning gas to driving to a big store. No dragging the kids through the store asking for everything they see. I’ll take the products delivered, Thank you.
I do enjoy shopping local and like to patronize local stores as much as possible. But as I said, I live rural. My local town is 300 people. But they do have nice stores. As our family has evolved and shifted our health and diet needs, some of those things I cannot get at the local store. That is where I must either go to a city, HyVee is 1.5 hours away and Walmart 1 hour. Or I can have them delivered.
As I have continued my own journey in being proactive with our health, I have become quite picky on what products I bring into my home. I do not want synthetics, parabens, chemicals, and endocrine disruptors. News flash, most products sold on store shelves contain those. You can read more on the complete list and where they are commonly found, in this past blog post .
One of the brands I have come to love, and trust is the Young Living brand. They are not all essential oils! They have quite a few home products as well. All plant based, nontoxic, and chemical free. The scents are from truly pure essential oils, and they are all listed on the labels (no sketchy fragrance secrete). And they have a subscription program!
Some of my favorites that are routinely in my monthly box are below. No, they are not all in there every month. In the list is also about how often I order them. Clicking the name will take you straight to the product.
- Ningxia Red: A tasty juice puree, packed full of nutrients. I can mix this into a hot tea in the cool days or add some club soda for a fizzy drink in the warm weather. I order 4 bottles every month.
- Thieves household cleaner: I use this for everything! Counters, floors, mirrors, stain buster, de-grimmer, laundry booster, and I’m sure more I’m forgetting. I buy the big bottle about 1 once per year.
- Toothpaste: the whitening is my husband’s favorite, the KidScentsis the kids. I buy a tube about every 3-4 months or less.
- Body Wash: For me I like to use the Bath & Shower Gel Base, then I can change the scent up using the oils I have. I buy 1 bottle every year and mix it into a foam pump bottle.
- Laundry soap: I split this bottle into 4 and buy one every 6 months or so.
- Hand soap: I prefer the thieves soap and buy the refill bottle every 6 months or so.
As I've grown in my journey as an entrepreneur, mom, gardener, and livestock owner, I struggled to find a planner that met my needs and kept me organized. So I MADE MY OWN. You can take a look at it on the link blow and buy it on amazon below
Don't want the whole calendar part? I got you! I pulled the gardening and animal care pages out and put them in a book all their own.
