Add Romance to Valentine’s Day: 3 Eco-Products
By Shar Veda
February is the official month of Love and Romance. There’s not a better time all year for hot baths with your sweetie and chocolates in bed. Taking quality time to get luxurious with your beloved is important for many reasons, so set a date night, share a nice candlelit meal or bath, and hand-feed each other chocolates. We all deserve romance in our lives, Kings and Queens, I handpicked three yummy, romantic products from conscious companies to plump your pamper time. I love them and you will too!
Alter Eco Chocolate Truffles come in four scrumptious flavors—Sea Salt, Salted Caramel, Velvet and Black. I tried the first three and love them all. Alter Eco Truffles are true chocolate decadence for every day, not just Valentine’s Day, and they’re wrapped individually which makes it hard to over eat. Based on the premise that “food is fundamental to life,” Alter Eco’s mission is “global transformation through ethical relationships with small scale farmers and an integral sustainability orientation with every point in the supply chain.” Well said my friends, we support you! YUM!
Thesis Beauty Purists make the best scrubs, I mean better than Eminence…the “best.” I love their Café Crema Coffee Bliss Body Scrub made with organic sugar, coffee, shea butter and coconut oil. It enlivens the skin, wakes you up and delivers a serious mood boost every time! Thesis Bath Salts are delightful too, specifically their Lavender Fields & Woodlands salts, and make it easy to unwind in the tub after a long day and get ready for a sweet dreaming night. The scents I chose are unisex (not too floral) so everyone can enjoy!
Louder Than Words adventure wear, one of a kind hemp and organic cotton fashion, is cozy, comfy and totally lounge-able. I love the details in Jeanah’s pieces, like the little heart on the brief above. The briefs fit excellently and the hemp makes them feel substantial, like they’ll last forever. The only con I found to this set is the bandeau slides down, and I found myself frequently pulling it up. However, if you give Jeanah your measurements she promises to customize.
How are you celebrating the month of Romance this year, world family? Send your thoughts in an email, I love hearing from so many of you and am delighted you try the products I recommend!
