For a long time I ran a series, Natural Products I’m Loving Now, where I showed you the natural products I tried and loved. I tried many natural products that I didn’t like or didn’t work, so I wanted to take some of the guess work out of it for you. I started out sharing every month, then quickly changed it to a seasonal series. After sharing quite a few times, I stopped having as many new products to tell you about. Since I haven’t tried enough new natural products lately to warrant a whole post, I thought I’d share with you the best of the best. These are the products that have passed the test of time and are used regularly in my life. I looked through all of my old natural products posts and I actually still use everything I’ve shared with you, but these are my favorites. Keeping my home as natural and toxin-free as possible is my goal. Let me help you on that same journey!

Natural Products I Love in the Kitchen
I get a lot of mileage out of these baking mats. I use them every single week. It helps me cut back on the amount of parchment paper I need to use and they work perfectly. Nothing sticks to them and they are easy to clean. These are the best-priced silicone baking mats I’ve seen, as well.
I use both the fine salt and the Kosher salt from this brand. This is salt that retains its natural mineral content and isn’t processed like many salts on the market. There’s no anti-caking agents or extra ingredients. Just salt! This is the only salt we use in my kitchen.
e-cloth continues to be my go-to brand for cleaning cloths. They are the cloths that clean everything with JUST water! They do a fantastic job on counters, stainless steel, windows, just about everything in your house you need to clean. I also use their mop and love it. Chemical-free cleaning at its best.
Pyrex glass storage containers are used every single day in my kitchen. I store leftovers in these, use them for the produce I chop ahead of time, and they can even go right into the oven. I don’t know what I’d do without these! I’ve stocked up quite a collection over time and they are fabulous.
Personal Care Natural Products I Love
If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it. This is the ONLY natural deodorant I’ve tried that works. And believe me, I’ve tried a lot. I’ve used this for almost 2 years now and it continues to keep my pits smelling fresh. 🙂 It also comes in stick form if you feel strange about rubbing the paste under your arms. Tim and I both use Primal Pit Paste. He prefers the unscented variety, while I like lavender or jasmine.
Tarte is my favorite, go-to brand for natural cosmetics. They are cruelty-free, gluten-free, chemical-free, and the best part is the products are awesome. I can’t deal with natural products that don’t work. This stuff works. It looks great, stays put, and is my favorite make up line I have ever tried, natural or not. All of my make up is Tarte.
I’ve been using the Diva Cup for almost 3 years now. I can’t imagine going back to tampons. Tampons are made with chemicals that you really don’t want close to your lady parts. You know how pristine white they are? Chlorine bleach, baby. I don’t want my body absorbing that. Dioxin (a chlorine-compound left behind by the bleaching process) is listed as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization. No, thank you.
This hand cream is a little jar of magic. This saved my hands and Meghan’s hands two winters in a row now. If Meghan doesn’t use this, her hands are red, dry, and irritated. As soon as she begins using it nightly, her hands go back to soft and smooth. It’s fabulous. I also discovered this Savannah Bee Company Royal Jelly Body Butter Cream. Oh. My. Goodness. This stuff is gold. I am in love with it. It smells like heaven. I find it so difficult to find products that smell good without synthetic fragrances. This one is the exception! Worth every penny.
This is still my favorite shower soap. We’ve been using it for over two years and love it. The bottle lasts a long time so it’s really a great value. You can use this soap for household cleaning also.
I fell pretty hard for this skin care collection the first time I tried it and have been hooked ever since. A friend of mine recently started her own organic skin care line and asked me to give her products a try, which I have been for the last week, but I have to say this line is going to be hard to beat. It comes with a cleanser, a toner, a hydrating serum (which makes the whole set 1000% worth it) and a moisturizer. It smells great and is perfect for (ahem…) aging skin.
These are the best of the best on my list of natural products. I get tons of people asking me if I have a good natural shampoo and/or conditioner recommendation, and so far, I don’t. I feel like I’ve tried every kind under the sun, but haven’t found one that I love. If you have a great natural shampoo and conditioner recommendation, I would LOVE to hear it! Please share any other recommendations you have in the comments. It’s so much easier to try a new natural product when you hear from someone who has tried it and loved it. It was a reader who prompted me to try Primal Pit Paste. I love this community! 🙂
