Puu Laau Remedies Muscle and Tension Lubricating Salve, 1 oz. – Value $12? (linked to similar)
Ok, so this is basically a natural version of a Vicks Vaporub type of deal. It’s a soft salve for tension relief and muscle repair. It’s mentholated and you can also use it to soothe bruises. This one-ounce jar is a pretty good size, so it will last a while. It contains organic olive, coconut and castor oil, infused with a ton of stuff, including green papaya (!) and organic menthol. Glad to know this will be in my medicine cabinet the next time I’m sore from yard work.
Indigo Elixirs Hair and Skin Hydration Oil in Neroli Nectar, 1/3 oz. – Value $12
I’m not super familiar with hydrating oils, but this smells heavenly and makes my skin feel super soft. Among it’s all natural ingredients is clove, which is really prominent and what draws me to it. My hair has been frizzing so much lately, so this will also be perfect to tame my fly aways.
Mamalani Nākoa Natural Deodorant in Clary Sage, 2 oz. – Value $14
I’ve been meaning to switch to a natural deodorant since aluminum is scary, and this fits the bill. I know I’ll still sweat, but at least I won’t be stinky. As always, this Mamalani product comes in eco-friendly packaging made fully of paper, so I can feel good about that too. All you do is push up from the bottom (like a push-up pop) and the deodorant stick comes up. It smells frigging amazing and doesn’t leave white marks on my clothes. I can’t stop smelling my armpits.
Embed Hawaii Eco-Friendly Cork Coasters – Value $5?
Embed Hawaii is a brand new home decor company, so there’s not much about them online yet. However, they’ve made these super cute cork coasters featured in this month’s box. Since cork is moisture-resistant yet impermeable, it’s perfect to put an icy glass on. I like the blue “Flow Like Water” graphic they’ve screened on these and plan to use these on my nightstands for my nightly water.
Verdict: Gosh, I love Go Native! I feel so great welcoming these natural products into my home that are always made in Hawaii and free of scary chemicals and ingredients. Everything smells so awesome all the time, and their items open me up to new things.
