Ecocentric Mom is a subscription box inspired by green living! Each month they deliver thoughtfully curated boxes designed to help busy moms discover safe (and fun!) eco-friendly products for themselves and their babies up to age two. I absolutely loved this box! Fun stuff for mama and something snuck in for baby too! Subscription boxes like this one are a great way to discover new brands especially when just starting to make the switch to non-toxic products.
This fragrance free lotion made with raw, cold pressed, extra virgin, organic coconut oil is great for those who prefer a neutral aroma and is ideal for even the most sensitive skin: perfect for baby skin or tender skin conditions. This lotion definitely was soothing and moisturizing and didn’t feel too heavy on the skin, but personally I like a little natural fragrance in my lotion. I actually added a drop of Stress Away essential oil (one of my favorites) to this and it was perfect. They do have some fun, natural fragrance options available as well like Pineapple Coconut, Pink Grapfruit and Lemongrass Tangerine.
With simple ingredients like zinc oxide, raspberry, carrot, lemon, citronella, peppermint, orange, kiwi and tangerine, this lightweight fruity sunblock smells amazing and doesn’t leave that yucky white residue. And bonus, this sunblock also doubles as a natural insect repellent. I love 2 in 1 products like this! This has been an everyday AM staple since I got it for my daily early morning walks with baby boy.
You can grow your own organic garden with the Seeds Now! collection of pure non-genetically modified seeds. Their seeds are 100% non-hybridized, 100% heirloom/open-pollinated, and 100% raw & un-treated. These seeds actually inspired me to get more seeds and grow more at my home. It was almost ridiculous how easy it was. Before I knew it, I had sprouts and I almost have full basil leaves now (see picture below). No green thumb needed. How awesome?! On their website they have lots of affordable sampler seed packs that you can try!
Honestly these baby mitts are my favorite item in the whole box and they aren’t even for me, but they are amazing for newborns. These little mitts are machine-washable, 70% bamboo/30% organic cotton blend is breathable, naturally antimicrobial and environmentally sustainable. They stay on which is hard to say when it comes to baby mitts and lastly, they have a cool high contrast print that stimulates baby’s brain. How cool is that?! I’m so glad I found this brand and can’t wait to order some of their other equally awesome baby items.
Confession: I live for sour candy and devoured these seconds after I opened the box. I try not to eat conventional sour gummy candy often because of all the hidden nasty ingredients so it’s nice to know there is a better alternative available. These did not disappoint! Vegan, nut free, non-GMO, gluten free, and USDA organic, free of artificial dyes and flavors. These were watermelon lemonade flavor and I can’t wait to get more. They have a super helpful “Where To Buy” link on their website so you can easily find them at a store near you.
A multitasking body balm that is 5 products in one. It encourages skin’s natural elasticity, soothes and relieves dry skin and eczema, helps minimize emerging stretch marks, moisturizes and protects sensitive and delicate skin, helps strengthen thinning skin. This felt so soothing on my postpartum delicate belly skin. The small sample wasn’t really enough for me to see it work wonders or live up to its claims, but I loved the feeling of this lotion/balm.
Not all bath bombs are created equal. Actually, most are very toxic. These are vegan, fair trade, mostly organic and 100% natural. There’s nothing like treating yourself to a nice warm bath after a long day and bath bombs just make the experience even more fun. My bath bomb was the Sweet Breeze…this fizzy bath bomb turns your bath tangerine orange while it releases the scents of Sweet Orange, Lavender and Peppermint. This tired new mama really enjoyed this!
Hope you discovered some great new brands through this review and that you check out Ecocentric Mom’s fun monthly boxes.
