Linnea's Lights - Luxury Candles of quality, beauty and giving back

Many times I am in need of a classy gift that is on the side of luxury but not outrageous prices. I have needed such gifts to make Mother’s Day extra special on rough years or gift a boss or bring to a BUNCO party. I always think of home gifts as well that will be useful.

Candles always seem like the perfect choice especially ones designed well with unique scents and packaged with quality such as these luxury candles from Linnea’s Lights.

Reserve Candles

When I am getting a quality gift I tend to budget a minimum of about $50 and these candles definitely fit the luxury style and are less than that! Linnea’s Lights Reserve Light candles will take your senses to fields and flower valleys, herbal gardens and mineral aquatic experiences. The Reserve Light collection comes in a frosted vessel and birch box for elegant gifting like the candles I am featuring.

In contrast, the Reserve Dark collection comes in a matte black glass vessel and charcoal box and your sense of smell will bring you to leather, ambers, resins and exotic woods. Great for the men who like their luxury candles to freshen up their space.

Keep your hands clean with safe products – Peet Bros 100% palm-free soap

Keep your hands clean with safe products - Peet Bros 100% palm-free soap

Soaps and sanitizers! Have we said those 2 words more in one season ever?! What is real scary is now hearing that many products out there meant to keep us clean and sanitized are deemed unsafe to use. Soap should be simple. It should do its job and that can easily be done without unnecessary chemicals that do more harm than good. I have a bar of Peet Bros. 100% palm-free soap in every bathroom and my kitchen. My guest bath has a bottle of their lotion too and here is why…

One reason I choose this soap in my home is not because they sent me some, I could easily keep what I had out and stash this one after photos but that is not the case. The reason is in it’s title: 100% palm-free soap. Palm oil has great natural benefits and is a safe ingredient. Unfortunately, as one of the largest contributors to global deforestation, greenhouse gas emissions, and biodiversity loss, the palm oil industry also has a devastating impact on the environment. That is never ok with me and I had no idea until I looked more into it.

The second reason why I choose to use Peet Bros palm-free soap as my choice in the home is that I am highly attracted to their main ingredients of shea butter, olive oil and hemp oil. Shea is the second ingredient in our soap, meaning you’ll get up to 25 times more Shea Butter than other Shea bars out there. My hands get clean and remain so soft. The softness is not temporary either.

Just days ago I was complaining about my skin on my hands as it was so dry and uncomfortable. I am looking at my hands now and they have no dryness and even are a bit brighter. They do not look so thirsty anymore and the only change I have made is using this palm-free soap by Peet Bros. that I wash my hands with throughout the day.

Aside from it being truly natural and safe for us and the environment, the scents and varieties they have are fantastic. I really love the Coconut Vanilla. I chose this one for my guest bath. I put the Charcoal soap in the boys bathroom upstairs and the Argan & Sandalwood soap in my master bath. Make sure to pair their bar soap with a Peet Bros. lotion too. That is how I use their products to get these hands so soft again.

Visit Peet Bros. palm-free soap and stick up for back to school. Your environment and hands will thank you!

ECOS Mother & Child Packaging Allows You To Reduce Plastic Consumption

ECOS Mother & Child Packaging Allows You To Bulk Buy & Is Eco-Friendly

For more reasons than one, this new bulk buy ECOS packaging is making my life so much easier. ECOS is a favorite brand of mine already because of its safe, eco-friendly and effective cleaning products but now they make packaging that helps my (already) out of control cleaning product shelves. It is called the Mother & Child packaging. Reduce Plastic Consumption with this new packaging!

This Mother & Child packaging is available for the dish soap and all-purpose cleaner. The smaller, everyday use size package snaps right into the refill package, making it really easy to use and reuse. The bottle you use everyday helps save you space in your cleaning shelves because of this genius design. 1 refill bottle gets you 5 full fills.

My fault is actually forgetting that I have a refill because I tend to tuck that extra bottle away and out of sight. I can literally snap these two pieces together with one hand. I still get the great environmentally-safe cleaner and save space by buying it this way while feeling good hat I can reduce plastic consumption at the same time.

ECOS laundry Reduce Plastic Consumption

If you want to know what other ways ECOS products help the environment, consider the ECOS Laundry Detergent sheets. It is not a pod or large plastic container of liquid, but simply a dissolving sheet you toss into your HE machine and wash your clothing and fabrics with hypoallergenic, plant-based detergent. I keep a box in the RV so when I do campsite laundry when we travel I can walk down with a sheet rather than pods that could burst open on me (I have had that happen before).

ECOS Mother & Child packaging makes it easy to be cost-conscious and reduce plastic consumption at the same time, while also keeping your family safe and healthy. You can find this design at Whole Foods stores.
