Sustainable Summer Essentials

Sustainable Summer Essentials

Life Elements

May 17, 2021

We love summer for inviting us into its warm night breezes, hot sunny days, and carefree-infused air. This summer, especially, seems like it will be extra sweet after finally emerging from the pandemic. Nature is responsible for everything we love about this season, so it's appropriate to use nature-based products as we fully enjoy its beauty. Here are the things we love all summer long, and why. 

1. Outdoor Spray - For Bugs 

Outdoor Spray ($16)

This is a no-brainer summer essential. Don't let the bugs bog you down, but most importantly, don't bring harsh chemicals into nature's house. This Outdoor Spray is made with natural bug repellents such as lemongrass, tea, tree, eucalyptus, and rosemary. Safe for the whole family and Mama Earth herself. Comes in a refillable option to reduce plastic, carbon footprints, and your wallet! 

 

2. Rosemary Mint Sugar Scrub - For Your Bikini Line

Rosemary Mint Sugar Scrub ($40)

While there are plenty of reasons to exfoliate, we think avoiding—or treating!—ingrown hairs around your bikini line is at the top of the list. You can use this delightful Rosemary Mint Sugar Scrub to treat pesky ingrown hairs by applying a warm washcloth to the area for 10-15 minutes, then gently exfoliating for 10-15 seconds. Fingers crossed, this does the trick. For preventative measures, simply  use this Scrub before you shave to remove dead skin. (This gives you a closer shave.)  Comes in a refillable option to save you money and reduce everyone's carbon footprint. 

 

3. Shampoo Bar

Shampoo Bar - 3 pack ($30) or Single ($12.50)
People are obsessed with these Shampoo Bars because they're clarifying, natural, affordable, and honestly amazing for your hair, but the reason we think they're a summer essential is because of their convenience for travel. (It also works on your doggo.) No more leaky shampoo bottles, and best of all—no more plastic in landfills.
 

4. Everyday Skin Repair - For Sunburns 

Everyday Skin Repair ($16-$36)

There are countless ways to use Everyday Skin Repair. If you've seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding, just consider this the Windex of solutions. However, we're talking about sunburns because, you know—summer. Everyday Skin Repair is formulated with a host of very helpful nature-based ingredients that reduce inflammation, promote skin cell regeneration, and soothe redness. Headliners include CBD, honey, tea tree, and calendula. Seriously, check out the reviews

 

5. CBD Bath Bomb or Bath Salts - For Foot Soaks

 Signature CBD Bath Bomb - 50 mg ($14)

You do not know what you're missing until you've tried a CBD foot soak. We highly recommend using cold water if it's a hot day. Boom, you've got your own spa-style spring to relieve those aching feet and cool yourself down. Use the  Signature CBD Bath Bomb (50mg) or 1/4 a bag of Recovery Bath Salts (200mg). If you use the Salts, be sure to seal the bag in between uses, or the Salts will absorb all the moisture in the air. 

 

We hope these sustainable summer essentials take you all the places you didn't get to go last summer. Enjoy!
