Oh Mrs. Bee! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Terressentials! They are made in MD and the ingredients are nothing but plants…. just real, actual plants. It smells wonderful too!!! Not only do they only use organic stuff but it’s all food grade organic because they feel if you would put it on your body then it should be good enough to put in your body. It’s super wonderful! Hope you find something that works for you. 🙂 http://www.terressentials.com/facialcare.html

Great post, Mrs. Bee! I made the switch to completely natural beauty products about 2 years ago, and I’m always dying to hear what others use and love.
I use Avalon Organics shampoo and conditioner (which are OK — I haven’t found shampoo and conditioner that I LOVE just yet), Bare Minerals makeup (which is not organic but is at least checmical-free), and Origins/Burt’s Bees skincare products. I also love the Clarisonic because it gives the results of a facial but you can use it with any skincare prodcuts that you’d like.
My favorite green product at the moment is Method’s Almond Flower body wash — it smells soooooooo good. Many natural products have the same range of scents (lavendar, lemon, etc.), and I’ve found this product’s smell to be a nice change from the old standbys. 🙂

I second Terressentials products! A lot of products market to be "organic" and "green" but Terresentials is one of the few vendors that offer products that are certified USDA organic.
The Organix shampoo actually gave me dandruff 🙁 I actually just started making my own shampoo (only takes two minutes!) because despite claims that shampoos make to be organic there are a ton of ingredients that are lab created. Also, it’s really cheap to make your own body scrub!! I use a mixture of sugar, aloe vera gel, jojoba oil, and any essential oils I have on hand and it works great. Mountain Rose Herbs (www.mountainroseherbs.com) is a fantastic vendor that sells organic products if you are ever interested in purchasing ingredients to make your own skincare products. I have also found Mountain Rose Herbs to be very active on their Facebook fan page. They respond very quickly to any question you may have and give great reference to reading material that may assist you.

Green leafy vegetables, which are great for a slim healthy figure, are also amazing for your hair. Sweet fruits like oranges and apples, and dairy products, like yogurt and milk, are also considered beneficial for rich, healthy looking hair.I love shielo for my hair by the way.
