An Honest Effort
As a mom, I often wonder what else I can do to help my child thrive, live healthfully and have the best opportunities to develop well. Recently I have been focusing on making my home more healthy for my family. I started this effort a few months ago, after realizing my concern for a healthier home.
I would clean my tub with my grocery store cleaner and then proceed to rinse it many times before giving Luke a bath, I was concerned that the chemicals in my cleaner would bother his skin. After doing this a few times, I decided I needed to start making small changes. As I ran out of my cleaning products, I replaced them with more healthful options from Honest.com
I signed up to test some Honest products with the Honest Essentials Bundle as well as the Diaper and Wipes Bundle. I was drawn to shop from this company after reading the article about Jessica Alba, Co Founder and CEO of the Honest Company in Forbes. I was inspired by her story for starting the company and her desire to make her home a healthy place for her family. I also love this brands marketing and if you know me, you know I am a sucker for great packaging.
I was impressed with my Free Diaper Trial and have been purchasing Honest.com products ever since. One product in particular that I am really impressed with is the Organic Healing Balm. Luke started to develop some very dry skin on the tops of his feet and in the crease of his elbows during the summer. After regulary applying the healing balm for a week, I started to see an improvement in his skin. It makes me feel good when I can care for him with more natural products.
All us moms are always trying to do the best we can for our families and sometimes we wonder if we are doing enough. We can't do everything all at once, sometimes we just need to take one step at a time but we are always moving in the right direction when our families best interest is at heart.
Step by step, I am working on making my home a more healthy place with products that are safe and I am really excited about it! Autumn is a time for me to refresh, recharge and take on new challenges. Its not perfect and never will be but I feel good about the honest effort I make to care for my family.
