Simple Product Swaps for a Healthier You

It’s the first day of the new year and if you’re like most people, you probably have some goals you’re looking to focus on in the next 12 months. Regardless of what your vision for the year includes, taking care of your mind and body is an essential step in the process. Here are a few simple swaps you can implement for a healthier you:

1. Start using natural deodorant 
Although natural deodorant might not seem necessary, the truth is that traditional antiperspirants often contains harmful parabens and phthalates, as well as aluminum -- an ingredient suspected to be linked to breast cancer. With daily use, these toxic ingredients can add up for substantial health impacts, and switching from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant made with clean ingredients is the better option. Deodorants also allow the body to continue its healthy, natural process of perspiring. Carefully formulated with plant-based ingredients and essential oils, we love the vegan deodorants from Corpus Naturals in a range of calming natural scents. 

2. Switch to a clean, nutrient-rich shampoo + conditioner
Similar to your daily deodorant application, the shampoo and conditioner in your shower is likely filled with similar harmful ingredients like synthetic colors, polyethylene glycols, and parabens. A clean, nutrient-rich shampoo + conditioner, like the Act + Acre Cold Processed Cleanse + Condition Set, strengthen and nourish hair without exposing your body to toxic additives.

3. Try CBD for pain relief 
When it comes to relieving pain, it’s easy to reach for a traditional painkiller like Motrin or Advil, but what if there was a plant-based remedy? CBD is a healing alternative for soothing pain and reducing inflammation, as it interacts with our endocannabinoid system to prevent pain related proteins from attaching to our receptors. Formulated with full spectrum CBD, CBG, and linalool, we love the Mineral Recovery Tincture for soothing aches and discomfort. 

4. Power up! Without the caffeine crash 
Enjoying a cup of coffee each morning can be a grounding practice. However, intake of caffeine can result in a crash a few hours later, leading to feelings of exhaustion and issues with concentration that can make it difficult to feel balanced and accomplish the things on our to-do lists. Swap your morning coffee for the Matcha Turmeric Latte Blend from Golde, made with organic turmeric, cinnamon, and premium matcha from Japan for clean energy and focus. No mid-day caffeine crash here!

Whatever your goals are this year, these healthy swaps should leave you feeling your best each and every day.
