Re: What personal care products do you use?

Shampoo -- varies a little bit, but right now I have Jason tea tree and Kiss My Face. The kids right now have Nature's Gate and Organix tea tree.

Toothpaste -- Ecodent. The kids are working on using the same. They are nearly at the end of their last tube of toothpaste, which was something natural without flouride.

Deodorant -- I make my own. My oldest uses Jason. My son will probably start soon and I'll give him the option of using what I make or getting something aluminum free.

Soap -- I had been buying some ewe's milk soap from a lady on here, but she had some major flooding issues in her basement earlier this year and is still working on recovering from it. So, right now I'm using a goat's milk soap I bought from the co-op. I don't remember the actual brand. The kids are using something homemade, as well, but I don't remember what.

Re: What personal care products do you use?

1.shampoo: no-poo method, baking soda and white vinegar
2.toothpaste: Tom's of maine cavity protection
3.deodorant: baking soda (want to look into making my own bar soap with coconut oil)
4.soap: Grandpa's Vegetable Based All Purpose Baking Soda Soap, Unscented
5.Face & Body: 3pt sunflower oil, 1pt caster oil, couple drops TTO
6.Face Mask: Mudd 5 min face mask
7.Hand lotion: unscented Burts Bees hand lotion & Burts Bees almond hand creme
8.Lip Balm: Burts Bees or Dr Bronners

For my son I don't use any bath products on (he is 3). Our hand soap is Dr Bronners peppermint in a foamer bottle. He uses silly strawberry Tom's of maine, that is about it. Since we have well water we switched him recently to fluoride toothpaste rather than give him the tablets the dentist wanted to give him. My son we use the oil on his body without the TTO. I will use lanolin on bad drop spots in the winter and the lip gloss, he has unscented dr bronners because I didn't want him thinking it was candy.

If nothing else I strongly recommend the soap: Grandpa's Vegetable Based All Purpose Baking Soda Soap!

My Mood:
1. Shea Moisture or Everyday Shea
2. Haven't made the switch yet- still using Crest
3. Toms deodorant (I still use Dove antiperspirant for work though)
4. Locally made bar soap for me, babyganics or Shea moisture liquid body wash for the kids

I use jojoba oil for face lotion, coconut oil for the rest, also for taming my frizzy hair. I've been slowly switching to more green products, but you can see it's a work in progress.

Re: What personal care products do you use?

1. Desert Essence, Acure Organics, EO 3in1
2. Aquafresh or Peelu Powder (I have not had any luck w/ any other natural product on my thin-enamel teeth)
3. DJ Deodorant (My own brand; see siggy)
4. Kirk's Castille for a cheap natural product, EO 3-in-1, other random shower gels I may treat myself to

Other stuff: Aubrey Organics hair serum for leave-in conditioning, Kiss My Face or Aubrey Organics B6 for gel, Bronner's, Nature's Gate Glow, Mill Creek Botanicals, or my own homemade lotion bars for lotion, Terratints or Dr. Bronner's on lips, a now-discontinued lotion on face that I don't know how I will replace, etc.
