Organic and Non-GMO Food
I love the convenience and prices of Thrive Market for my healthy food needs. New customers can use the link above to get 25% off and free shipping.
I’ve been shopping online at Vitacost for a very long time for healthy food and their service has just gotten better over the years. They were the first online store I started shopping at for organic and alternative food that was not available in local stores back in the day before gluten-free and organic was common. The prices are lower than what you can find at a local health food store. The link above will give new customers $5 off their order.
I buy my natural chicken and fish in bulk from Zaycon Fresh for the best prices! Check out the website to see if they have a drop in your area.
Check your area for local farms to support the local farmers and get fresh and local food. Local Harvest is a website dedicated to helping people find local farms, farmer’s markets, and CSA’s in their area. I feel good about supporting a couple of wonderful family farms in my area. For beef, I buy 1/4 of a cow once a year from a local farm in Southwest Washington where I get grass-fed, grass-finished beef. For pork, I buy a whole pig once a year from a local farm in Southwest Washington that are the cleanest eating pigs I’ve ever known. I won’t buy pork from a regular grocery store and I feel good to be eating pork from a once healthy pig. Pork is actually my main source of meat which is why I buy a whole pig. I get an autoimmune reaction to beef and chicken which means my doctor advises I eat beef and chicken no more than once a week.
I’ve been a happy customer at Azure Standard for years. I wrote a review of Azure Standard and how to get started with their service.
Pure Formulas sells gluten-free products and supplements to name a few. I have been happy with the supplement brands they carry for my family’s needs, great prices and free shipping every day. Boiron is a brand they carry that I trust for homeopathy. Thorne Research, Pure Encapsulations, and Garden of Life are brands they carry that I trust to have high-quality supplements.
PaleoPlan is full of recipes for the Paleo diet and specializes in helping people menu plan for eating Paleo. They offer exercise videos too. I bought this service for a year and it was very supportive for living a healthier lifestyle.
I am extremely ingredient picky when it comes to what I put on my skin especially makeup. I am so happy with 100% Pure for my makeup. The link includes free shipping.
Healing Natural Oils sent me their Argan Oil and Simply Skin Vitamin Oil. I’ve been using them ever since for softer skin and hair.
I am training to become a Certified Aromatherapist and have learned how to detect high-quality essential oils for the best therapeutic benefit. I have a doTERRA essential oil business because I stand behind doTERRA’s mission, values, and outstanding quality of their essential oils. Each bottle of essential oil has a code that can be inputted to a designated website to find the different components and their amounts that make up the various therapeutic benefits that an oil can offer. doTERRA also carries skin care products, toiletries, cleaning products, protein powders, and supplements which my family happily uses. Click here if you would like to buy doTERRA products at retail or wholesale cost. My contact page is the best way to contact me if you have any questions. If you are interested in starting your own doTERRA business, please contact me. When you buy through my link, you also gain access to my Facebook group, Aroma Mama’s Essential Oil Friends.
Babies & Kids
I am careful about avoiding chemicals around babies and toddlers porous skin. I trust The Honest Company for my children’s diaper needs because they don’t use chlorine or harsh chemicals. They sell diaper bundles that come with 6 packs of diapers and 4 packages of hypoallergenic wipes. They include free shipping. I love the cute diaper designs and for being a natural diaper they hold up better than any diaper brand I have ever tried which is a lot of brands. I’m a fan of their Healing Balm and cleaning products too. The link above is for $20 off your first bundle. When you buy the diaper bundle they give you the option to add on more products at a deeper discount.
I am a fan of Hanna Andersson’s line of organic underwear for kids. They sell organic training pants and underwear that they call “unders” and the designs are so cute. They also carry organic baby clothes and burp cloths. I find it worth my money to buy my children organic underwear because regular cotton is a heavily sprayed crop. Pesticides are taxing on the immune system and even more so for children.
I am a fan of Melissa & Doug for their classic wooden toys which are safer for kids to play with since plastic toys have chemicals that leech into the bloodstream. My kids have some toys that are made with plastic, but I like to limit them when I can. The link above will give you 15% off your order when subscribing to their newsletter.
Aromahead Institute offers several courses for an essential oil education. Click here to read my review of Aromahead Institute to find out more about the programs they offer. The following links are just a few of their courses.
This past year I went to a functional medicine doctor to treat my autoimmune disease. Functional medicine doctors are known for treating the root cause of an illness or disease, not just the symptoms. Many of them specialize in autoimmune disease, diabetes, and thyroid disease. Here is a directory if you want to find a functional medicine doctor in your area. The field is gaining popularity and more functional medicine doctors will be available as time goes on. If you can’t find one in your area, a naturopath or holistic doctor are other great options for doctors that focus on treating patients using more natural means.
A printable planner for helping you reach your healthy living goals. This is a brand new product on the market created by my friend, Brandice, from Grace Filled Plate.
I use a DefenderShield cell phone case that I use to protect myself from radiation when I’m talking on my phone. It gives me a lot of peace of mind that I can use my cell phone and not have radiation near my head. DefenderShield also carries laptop and tablet cases.
