13 okt: Natural skincare

I think it´s really fun with skincare and beauty products. Have tried many different brands and products over the years. Has taken me through the jungle, been tricked by several “miracle products” and with professional help learned more about my particular skin type. Good facecare products have always been important to me since I have a sensitive skin. However, it´s only the last year that I have switched to completely organic products, even for my body. Why organic: Safer for my skin and health, the planet and animals. Our skin is our largest organ and what you put on it is just as important to your health and well-being as what you eat. When it comes to skincare I don´t think I ever will use anything other then certified organic. I just don´t want any bullshit on/in my body, but it´s hard to know who to trust. The truth is,…

01 jun: Natural kitchen

Have gone through the kitchen and got rid of a lot of bad stuff (from a chemical point of veiw). First things first. Plastic is a good material, but not when it´s warm and not in our body. So I started to get rid of all plastic that comes in contact with heat (Chemicals from the plastic releases in heat) and then got a bit carried away… Got rid of our old teflon pans and got two lightweigh cast iron pans instead. Bough one new and one on a fleamarket, thats the charm with cast iron, the older the better! Got rid of all plastic lunch boxes and got glass ones instead. Kept the small plastic ones, perfect for salad and to bring fika on adventures. Got rid of all plastic kitchen tools and got stainless/wooden ones instead. Got rid of our plastic strainer and got a stainless instead. Got…

15 maj: Natural oil skin care

Have bought a couple of different organic oils and bottles from Opella to make my own skin care. Fun, natural and comparatively cheap. For the face oil I used: Almond, argan, jojoba, sesame and wheat germ oil. For the clensing oil I used: Ricin, almond, argan & jojoba oil. For the body oil I used: Almond, argan, jojoba, sesame oil and essential lavender oil. Exciting to see how my skin will react.

18 apr: Naturlig babyvård

Hudvård När det gäller baby-hudvård använder vi så få och så vänliga produkter som möjligt. Främst Baby Oil & Baby care från Maria Åkerberg som jag älskar. Oljan för återfuktning, tvätt & massage. Krämen för när hon blir lite röd eller torr. Våtservetter änvänder vi bara när vi är utomhus. När det gäller blöjor … Jag var till en början sugen på att kombinera med tygblöjor när vi var hemma. Robin var det absolut inte det så de blir engångsblöjor… Hårvård Min tanke är att vi kommer att tvätta håret med olja från början, och om det fungerar bra ser jag inget behov av att införa ett schampo alls. Hon blir nog en No Poo´er precis som sin mamma. Vi kommer använda en extra mjuk borste från Redecker, lämplig för spädbarn. Napp Om det behövs kommer vi anväda en napp tillverkat av naturgummi. Utan plast, gift, kemikalier, BPA och ftalater….

06 apr: Natural shower

Here´s the only products I use in the shower. A soap from Dr.Bronners made out of organic oils. The one we have is unscented unlike their other soaps. They probably smells better but I like it as clean as possible and it´s a big plus that it´s baby friendly. I have replaced the cork with a pump, think that´s more practical. Dr. Bronners soaps can be used for almost everything, from baby care to cleaning your car. I use this in the shower for cleaning my body and as a shaving cream together with my safety-razor with replaceable blades. I have heard that it´s good for cleaning your hair as well (and works with no-poo) so maybee I will use it for that when I´m finished with the Brun 03 conditioner, depending of our financial situation at the moment ; ) Apart from beeing expensive, Bruns 03 is the best…
