Tea Tree Oil & Castile Soap
I have two green mentors, Christina and Amy. These two gals have done their homework. A few years ago, they decided to rid their homes of harsh chemicals and did a lot of reading on the subject area. The rest of their friends got to benefit from their new found knowledge, including me! :) I so often email them asking what do you use for this or that? They have given me sooo many recommendations over the years...I am eternally grateful for their willingness to share their knowledge. Here are two of my all time favorite products they have recommended:
1. Amy: Castile Soap- The soap can be used for anything and everything. From cleaning your kitchen to washing your hair. You can purchase it at Trader Joes, Whole Foods, etc. You only need a little tab and it will go along way. Amy had the great idea of buying one hand soap pump and keep refilling it with the an ounce or so of castile soap and water. I wash my hair with it 75% of the time and then rotate in my naughty shampoo once a week. Even my hubby uses it for his hair. I think it is so important to use green products in the shower. You ingest sooo much of those nasty chemicals in a hot, steamy shower when you use the chemical ridden products. THANK YOU AMY!
2. Christina: Tea Tree Oil- I recently started using Tea Tree Oil for acne and it really works. I know my friend Maria puts a few drops in a spray bottle with water and cleans Ruby's toys with it...such a great idea. I know there are a million uses for Tea Tree Oil..my Holistic Mom's Group uses it for everything. THANK YOU CHRISTINA!
