Non-Toxic and Lovin' It!

Ok readers, can I just say I am an Earth Mama Angel Baby junkie? I love their products!

So, how thrilled was I to see that they were offering me some samples to try out on my family as well as a giveaway for one lucky reader on my blog?!

I received my trial-sizes of all four of their toxin-free soaps:

Now, what did my family think?
  • My 11-year old daughter loved the Calm & Clean Scent, as did the twins. They said the smell and the feel was like honey on their toes. :)
  • My 8 year old preferred the Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash, scented with orange. It also made her hair shine in a way that her locks don't normally shine. :)
  • My son and my husband preferred the Non-Scents so that it didn't interfere with their MAN-Scents.... (insert roll eyes)
  • Me, I am still a die-hard for the Ginger-Grapefruit scent of Happy Mama. Ginger and grapefruit.. who doesn't love the nose-tingling, eye popping, skin invigorating tingle-your-senses mojo of that combination?
Likewise, when my family got hit with the flu just a week ago, they all received a nice, long soak in a Happy Mama bath... and came out without the queasies for the first time in a long time!


I love that I can offer my family Triclosan-free products.

Did you know that newly released data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds that levels of triclosan in humans have increased by 50% since 2004? Triclosan is also shown to alter thyroid function, and other studies have found that due to its extensive use in consumer goods, triclosan and its metabolites are present in, fish, umbilical cord blood and human milk.

Although we are a family that believes God Made Dirt and Dirt Don't Hurt, when it comes to the sniffley, germy, coughy, clingy children that my kids will encounter on a day-to-day basis, I LOVE having the option to send them out with Earth Mama Angel Baby products to keep them clean. And they can do it all while smelling HEAVENLY (yes, I meant to use that pun).

So, with all of that said, I really am ecstatic to share this giveaway with you! If you win, you will receive a full-sized soap of your choice (of the scents listed above). This giveaway is open to US and Canadian addresses only. Sorry!

    I love the ginger/grapefruit smell aslo. It is so revitalizing and energizing first thing in the morning. I try to stay away from as many toxins as possible. There are so many that we are exposed to on a daily bases that it is important to eliminate as many as we possibly can. hajemoly@hotmail.com

    I love lavender, even use it in soups. I'd love to try the Naturally calming Lavender. Toxin free is hard work, it means to me that I need to do a more diligent work finding out what it is that we are not just ingesting but also putting in our skin.

    I so want to try the lavender vanilla. We currently use the orange vanilla on our 14 month old son and ONLY use EMAB products on him because of his eczema (which is 95% of the time non-existent because of these products). That's why natural is so important to us. Keeps him pain free! And he just smells so yummy! Catherine_Stewart@live.ca

    Hi Nicole,

    I'd love to win the Ginger Lime Happy Mama Hand to Toe Wash. I struggle with a lot of nauseating migraines, so anything you call "queasy-busting" sounds good to me! :)

    As I fight these migraines, the more naturally I eat and live (soaps, cleaning products, lotions, etc.), the fewer painful and nauseated days I experience.

    Thanks for all of the great info you post; I learn something from each one!

    I think you have my email address; if I win and you don't, please post something to that effect and I'll get it to you.

    Sandi (Swartz....., now Meu.....) :)
