I didn’t make any goals or resolutions this year as it seemed too overwhelming. However, I did know one thing: that I wanted to be more conscious of the products we’re bringing into our home.
I’ve been thinking a lot of New Years resolutions (tis’ the season). I didn’t make any goals or resolutions this year as it seemed too overwhelming. However, I did know one thing: that I wanted to be more conscious of the products we’re bringing into our home. We prepare and eat delicious organic wholesome meals at home. We’ve also been teaching our daughter that it’s important to eat healthy and balanced meals and explaining to her what fuels our bodies and where our food is coming from. I think the next step will be learning more about household items, beauty and hygiene products. The more informed I am, the more I can share that knowledge with my family. Believe me – three-year olds have inquiring minds, and they always want to ask!
My new motto is “quality over quantity”. Although, it’s easy to grab the product with the smaller price tag off the shelf. The products that are organic, sustainable and green come with a higher cost. I’m looking at that as an investment in my family, our health and well-being. There are too many unknowns out there and I’m realizing lately that paying attention to labels is more important than ever, especially when it comes to skin care. We come from a long line of family members with sensitive skin and I want to be able to recognize and pronounce the names of the ingredients. I also want the ingredients list to be shorter.

I was excited to come across quality certified natural Canadian products from Green Beaver and more importantly, baby products. This is the perfect start to welcoming clean baby care items into our home. The calming lavender baby lotion has become part of our nightly bedtime routine. It smells heavenly and moisturizes the skin the way it should (not leaving it greasy or disappearing right after it’s applied). I even find that I’m applying it to my hands throughout the day. From constant hand-washing to dry winter hands, it’s exactly what I need. Green Beaver is a brand that I can get behind and I can’t wait to grow our collection.
