With so many companies our there, it’s hard to know who to trust. Over the years, I have tried my best to seek out transparent companies that I feel good about using–and good about recommending to you.
Here are some of my favorites. I hope you like them as much as we do!
Please note: many of these links are affiliate links so if you purchase any of these items through the links on this page, I make a commission. Of course, I only link to products I personally use.
I used to think that essential oils were “hocus pocus”, but I later found out that they are powerful natural means to support health. After working with some of the large Direct Sales essential oils companies, I felt I needed to change – to get more answers and lower prices.
BEAUTY & PERSONAL CARE
Looking for a company with transparency and ethics that performs? This is it! Beautycounter’s mission is to get safe personal care products into the hands of every one. Every one of their products is rated on EWG’s Skin Deep site. But besides just being safe, these products perform — and they perform well.
I love their Lengthening Mascara, their Countertime Skincare is the BEST skincare I have ever used, their Countermatch Eye Cream really works on dark circles and puffiness, their Tint Skin is my favorite foundation ever, their Eye Pencils are a fantastic value (at least 3x the size of other clean competitors’).
Go from bed head to pretty in a flash.
I ignored Lilla Rose forever, thinking they were too frilly, but once I tried them I LOVED them. They’re super cute, don’t rip out your hair like many clips and they are super sturdy.
Making your own bone broth is of course the most budget-friendly way to go. But when you’re short on time, having some quality bone broth already made is a HUGE help. Kettle and Fire is my favorite brand. Delicious, made from grass-fed beef bones, and shelf-stable!
Water filtration is one of the most important things you can do for your health. We started filtering our water years ago, but only had one of those faucet-mount systems and those do not filter out fluoride, which is not something I want myself or my family to be drinking.
Over the years we’ve had a carbon block filter, a Reverse Osmosis, and a gravity filter, but now this is our water filter of choice. We have an under the counter version and love it. Click here to learn more.

Thrive Market is a great place to find healthy foods and natural personal and home care products — for less. It’s kind of like a online buying club — without the bulk buying.
As I say all the time–filtering your water is perhaps the most important thing you can do for your health. Our bodies are made up of a high percentage of water, and we should be drinking a lot of it every day. There are so many contaminants in our water – lead, chlorine, fluoride…even personal care products! This Berkey Dealer has the best deal around for superior filters that clean even seriously dirty water – and they are currently my choice for portable water filtration.
I love this line of cookware! They are totally non toxic, and Recently I needed a non metal pot to make a special tea, and this was the perfect thing! Plus they are pretty too.
Corganic simply has AMAZING products. From their super gut healing Gut Pro probiotic (that happens to be a Low- Histamine Probiotic) to the ONLY Cod Liver Oil I will use, to great Magnesium Supplements (Good Night Maggie!) you can trust this company.
Everything is natural, no nasty fillers, and no nonsense. Potent and Pure.

When my blog got bigger, I need more services, but still wanted to save as much money as possible. Flywheel fit the bill. They have great service too – their Emergency Service has always responded to my calls for HELP! and they’ve been helpful and courteous each and every time.
Bluehost was my first host when I started blogging. A great place to go for reasonable hosting fees and decent service!
