As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord… and a good cup of coffee! What could be better than the smell of a fresh pot of coffee brewing in the morning, am I right? And when it comes to that rich, black beaned goodness, there are only 2 brands that I brew.

Let’s be honest… making the switch to greener cleaning products can seem a bit scary, overpriced and well, ineffective compared to other products on the market. I know, because I believed all those things too! But the switch doesn’t have to be complicated or hard on your wallet. In fact, switching to greener cleaning options actually saves you money AND your health. Did you know that common cleaning products contain chemicals that are harmful to your respiratory system, corrosive to your skin and disruptive to your hormones!? I don’t know about you, but I’ll pass on all of that! (draxe.com) And if you’re anything like me, you want (and need) something that’s cost-effective, germ-fighting and non-toxic. Here are some of my favorite cleaning products and DIY recipes:

Products:

  1. Branch Basics: A multi-purpose cleaning solution that can be used for countertops, bathrooms, glass, laundry and more! This plant and mineral based cleaning concentrate is one of my favorite go-to’s when cleaning our home. To browse or shop products, click here >>> branchbasics.com
  2. dōTERRA: An endless amount of essential oils contain anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and purifying properties, making them ideal for cleaning situations. I even combine them with dōTERRA’s On Guard Cleaning Concentrate or even my Branch Basics concentrate. #NoGermsHere

DIY:

  1. All-purpose cleaner: In a 16oz spray bottle, mix 1 1/4 cup of distilled water and 3/4 cup of distilled white vinegar. Add 10-15 drops of your favorite dōTERRA essential oil, gently shake and clean away! My top 5 essential oils for cleaning include Lemon, Wild Orange, Tea Tree, Purify and On Guard.
  2. Bleach alternative: Mix 1 1/2 cups of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 cup of lemon juice in a gallon jug, top with distilled water. Add 10-15 drops of lemon essential oil, gently shake to combine all ingredients. Store in a glass container. Can be used for laundry and cleaning purposes! 

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair! Hair care is so important, whether you have long and luscious locks like Rapunzel, short and spunky hair like P!nk or somewhere in between. Keeping ingredients like phthalates, sulfates, parabens, and PEGs out of your products creates a healthy and happy scalp which in turn creates healthy and happy hair! 

My favorite brand for clean hair care products is Innersense Organic Beauty. They have everything from the basics like shampoo and conditioner to volumizing foam to pink Himalayan salt spray (my personal fav). And all of their products are gluten-free, cruelty-free, non-GMO and made with certified organic ingredients! I mean, does it get any better? 

Spacing out washes, daily brushing, hair masks and using clean products all contribute to strong, healthy hair. And if you’re like me, it’s especially important for color treated hair. To get your Innersense hair care products (read: mermaid hair) click here >>> innersensebeauty.com

If I could spend the rest of my life lying by the ocean and soaking up the sunshine, I would in a heart beat! I love the entire atmosphere – the salty hair, tan lines, care-free tones and beach bum style. The ultimate laid-back vibe. One of the reasons why when I stumbled across Pura Vida, I instantly fell in love with their style and products.

Pura Vida is centered around giving back, which is also at the core of Simply 65 Roses. Over the past few years, they’ve created their Charity Collection. A collection which has partnered with over 175 charities and has raised nearly $1.7 million. The other reason why I fell in love with Pura Vida.

My favorite Charity Collection is the  Legacy Pack. Created by Colton Underwood for the Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation, a nonprofit that supports people living with Cystic Fibrosis. You can check out this Charity Collection and many others here >>> puravida.com
