What is your Favorite Natural Product?

Like most Wiccans/Pagans, I have a love affair with Natural Products. Natural Beauty Products, Natural Food, Natural Fabrics, Natural Cleaning Products, etc.
After all, many Wicca practitioners use natural products every day, such as Crystals, Wood, Salt, Water, etc.

The Essence of the NPA Natural Standard
The NPA natural standard is based on natural ingredients, safety, responsibility and sustainability.
  • Natural Ingredients: A product labeled "natural" should be made up of only, or at least almost only, natural ingredients and be manufactured with appropriate processes to maintain ingredient purity.
  • Safety: A product labeled "natural" should avoid any ingredient with a suspected human health risk.
  • Responsibility: A product labeled "natural" should use no animal testing in its development.
  • Sustainability: A product labeled "natural" should use biodegradable ingredients and the most environmentally sensitive packaging.
Under The Natural Standard for Personal Care Products, allowed ingredients come from or are made from a renewable resource found in nature (flora, fauna, mineral), with absolutely no petroleum compounds.
So, it should come as no surprise that I am a huge fan of Burt's Bees, and all their wonderful products that are natural, and wonderful, and very gentile on my sensitive skin.
I even had a 'Save the Bees' Birthday party a few years ago, and I featured products from Burt's Bees as well as all Natural whole foods that were pollinated by bees.
Anyway, this blog post is quickly becoming all about Burt's Bees... and there is good reason, because they inspired me to write this post.
This afternoon, I was making lunch when the mail came. I got a package from Burt's Bees! What a wonderful surprise.
A few weeks ago I participated in a Haiku writing on Burt's Bees Facebook, and they must have liked my Valentine's Burt's Bees poem because I got a package from them thanking me for participating. :)
 Inside the box was a gift bag filled with goodies. Natural goodies that I LOVE!
  • A Thank You Note
  • A Pomegranate T-Shirt (100% Organic Cotton)
  • Tinted Lip Balm (Hibiscus)
  • Replenishing Lip Balm (With Pomegranate)
  • Coconut Foot Cream
  • Peach & Willow-bark Scrub
  • Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
My favorite part of the present is the 100% Cotton Shirt. I cannot wait to were it!  And my favorite Natural Product (so far) is the Burt's Bees Lip Balm. I love the peppermint smell, and the tingle on my lips, but my favorite part is the fact that it has 100% natural ingredients!
So, this amazingly wonderful present gave me to idea to ask what your favorite Natural Product is. It can be anything, from Food, to Cleaning Supplies, to Makeup, to Clothing.
What is your Favorite Natural Product and Why?


  1. The best natural product is one every Mom uses and has used since time immemorial -- spit to wipe off the kid's face. I had many a spit wipe when I was a kid!

    1. Haha! I love it. I still use spit once and a while. Learned it from my mom! lol

  2. That was really interesting, once again, but I'm not sure I really have an answer. I guess I don't pay that much attention to what's in stuff... I like the spit answer, though! Lol!

    1. lol, spit... hehehe But you could answer anything you like, including foods like Apples.
