PRODUCT I LOVE: Brita Limited Edition ME to WE Water Bottle

True story the other day. A girl in the yoga class that I had just taken had just finished pouring filtered water from the tap into her cup. She kept the water flowing, while she sipped and talked to her friend.  I literally went around her and shut the tap.  She likely thought I was rude but I don’t care. Water deserves our respect.

Products I Love – Veeda Fem Care

 

Veeda Fem Care-2

Let’s talk feminine products for a quick sec before I introduce this product. Now, this isn’t necessarily a topic that I’ve dived real deep into but it is something that I find myself very conscious about for two reasons:

  • Most feminine products contain an enormous amount of packaging.  If you’re using feminine pads, as an example, you have the wrapper, the sticker liner and the pad itself that gets dumped into our waste lands.
  • And, most commercial feminine care products use genetically modified and/or synthetic ingredients. When our body is our largest organ, and in some cases these products are inserted into our bodies, I’m very concerned how this impacts our health.

And, it does impact our health especially our endocrine system (hormones, isn’t that crazy)! Synthetic ingredients and perfumes have the ability to affect our overall health.

I’ll be completely transparent here and tell you that I primarily use the Diva Cup which is something that I transitioned to a couple of years ago and I never looked back. But…

I do use tampons and liners at certain parts of my cycle. Unfortunately, feminine care products are a necessary evil unless you choose a company that creates healthier products.

Take Veeda Fem Care Products.  They provide 100% natural cotton tampons and pads that are free of synthetics, dyes, or fragrances in their products and hypoallergenic so you know that it is going to be gentle on your skin.

From an environmental standpoint, the applicator free line is the best choice in reducing waster. Not to mention, if the applicator is a transition for you, it’s quite an easy process once you get the hang of it.

If you do use the applicator, they are BPA-free and the wrappers are completely biodegradable which is a super BIG win for me. And, hey, the package is pretty spot on and very feminine too!

THe-Raindrop-Classic-by-Organic-Aromas

I’ve been crushing on essential oils for years, my friends.  Years ago, when I was struggling with stress and anxiety in my crazy-corporate job, I instinctively reached for essential oils.  I naturally knew that I did NOT want rely on anti-anxiety pills at that point.  So, I started to explore natural remedies such as a plant-forward diet, to more holistic approaches to managing stress.
