Natural in the New Year Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Natural in the New Year Giveaway Hop hosted by the Blogging Mamas Network.
The New Year is seems to be a time when most people start evaluating ways that they can live happier, richer, and healthier lives and I've joined a group of 30 other bloggers that have come together to help you do just that... in a more natural way! Each blog in the linky below has a natural prize to give away worth at least $25! So, join us all by going more Natural in the New Year!




"We see beauty everywhere.
It’s in the soil we till, the flowers we grow, the partnerships we build that honor the human spirit and respect the natural world.
And of course we see it in you.
But our mission isn’t just to recognize beauty. Our mission is to actively cultivate beauty.
We do it with Biodynamic® farming methods. We do it by developing fair trade partnerships for a more positive impact on the world. We do it by empowering the individual to make positive change in the world.
And of course we do it with meaningful products that work with your body’s own natural vitality and ability to nurture and heal.
We strongly believe in supporting your health and beauty, and that of every individual. By doing so, we hope each of us will be empowered to cultivate beauty in the world. For ourselves, for our children, and for the children of all the generations to come. "
 
 ***UPDATE***
I received Weleda Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash, Weleda Calendula Diaper Rash Cream, and Calendula Baby Lotion to review. The Diaper Rash cream prevents very well, but there have been times when I have forgotten to use it, so in those cases when diaper rash has occurred, this cream takes care of it in just a few diapers changes. I have been using the Shampoo & Body Wash on my daughter's long locks and it has been very conditioning for her hair and skin without breaking her out. I don't care for the smell of the lotion, but it is hydrating because I even used it for myself.



"ReusaWool Dryer Balls are the natural solution to reducing dry time, reducing static and softening your clothes, all with out the use of harsh chemicals. Even better, they are all made right here in the USA. Everyone does laundry, and ReusaWool can save up to 50% of the time and energy it takes to dry your clothes. Great for all laundry, and they're reusable for years!"

  6. It is not a 'new' resolution but rather more of a continuing journey for our family. We are not so well behaved as to have completely cut-out fast-food, and I don't have my compost going yet, but getting there. It just seems to make the most sense to stay more 'natural' and our overall health has already been improving with the changes we have already made.

  73. because you hear all about the harmful chemicals that just magically get into our food, toys, clothes, cleaners, etc! i don't believe there is enough testing done to know what it will really do to our bodies! its a shame that these products were made in the first place because all they're doing is hurting us: not only us, but more importantly, the environment. i am proud that many companies are coming out trying to improve their products, packaging, and processes. although i fear many irreversible damage has already been done.
