i have recently made the switch to all natural cleaning products. and i am now working on changing what we use for daily hygiene. 

shampoo

conditioner

deodorant

toothpaste 

mouth wash

lotions

anyone use dr bronners or tom of maine? opinions or thoughts?

also can anyone think of anything else that contain chemicals in our daily life that i haven't thought of?

we live fairly simple and dont use a lot of beauty products. the above listed are the main things we use on a daily basis. 

also for essential oils what are your favorites and what do you use them for?

thanks in advance ladies!

I use Dr Bronners for my kids for shampoo and body wash. Dr Bronners is great.

Toms of Maine has sulfates in it so I don't buy their products

I usually avoid Toms of Maine because it has sulfates in it.
For toothpaste I use Dr. Collins.
Dr. Bronner's great, I've never tried their shampoo though.

Dr. Bronners rocks! You can use it for pretty much anything.

I love Earth Paste toothpaste-it doesn't have glycerin in it.

I use the Castile soap

I make toothpaste powder, just plain baking soda is good.

Anything you can't eat is no good.

Every house should have tea tree and lavender oils, after that it becomes a matter of preference and what you want to use them for. AND you should get a book to reference, if nothing else, the contraindications and warnings.

Julia Lawless' illustrated encyclopedia of aromatherapy is great for beginners.
TTO is great for infections of all kinds and cleaning. Lavender is awesome for skin issues (burns, bruises, cuts, scrapes), bug repellant, calming emotions and nerves.

I use lavender oil like crazy. I dab it on the back side of all our pillows at night, it helps me sleep. I also use it on sunburns and bug bites.

Hello

I use Young Living essential oils and all of the products you listed above are available from them. I use the toothpaste and floss and have not had a cavity. I love the shampoo, conditioner and soaps. They have essential oils integrated right in the product. They are a therapeutic essential oil company and there is a huge difference in the oils you can buy in the store and the ones from a therapeutic oil company. I love lavender, tea tree oil, and frankincense. I use them on my face for acne as well as aging. I am currently pregnant and use gentle baby on my stomach to keep from getting stretch marks and know other woman that use it to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. I love my essential oils and essential oil products.
