I’ve got a few more of my favorite things up my sleeve for today’s giveaway. Today I put together things I use around my house all the time. These are products that make my life easier and healthier. They may seem like a random selection of products, which I totally get, but I use them almost daily. Well, except for the cleaning products, I don’t use them everyday. And on a total side note our home is in need of a good deep clean because I’ve been focused on launching this website. I’m just keeping it real over here. But that’s for another time and another day. Back to my favorite things!
Here are today’s things that will help you in your everyday life.
Norwex: There are many different natural cleaning products that can clean your home. My opinion after having a non-toxic home for over 10 years now is that the natural products work better than the chemicals. I know my house gets cleaner, not only healthier, when I use my non-toxic natural products. There are a lot of different ways to clean your home naturally and lots of products that you can purchase or make yourself. I’m so thankful that there are all of these options. You can make everything, buy everything or use a mixture of both. Personally I do a mixture of both, some things I buy and some I make and it works for us. I want to share with you one of my favorite ways to clean my house. It is with Norwex cleaning cloths. You can learn more here and find this giveaway here or at the very bottom of this post.
I love things that smell good. But the only thing is they have to be natural and non-toxic to pass my test. I found Grace on Instagram and she makes these amazing candles (and candle melts) and has a wonderful store on Etsy that she sells them on. I can’t wait for you to try them!!

Grace Note Candle Co. was born from a lifelong desire to create high-quality, one-of-a-kind fragrances that bring with them a sense of joy and happiness. Much like a ‘grace note’ in music is an added embellishment to a song, it is my hope that our Grace Note candles carry with them a special warmth and comforting presence into your home.
I handpour all my candles and melts using domestically U.S. grown 100% soybean wax. I use only high quality fragrance and essential oils to scent my wax, and I scent my product to the maximum scent percentage my wax will take…..because no one wants a weak candle! I also use recyclable packaging to minimize waste.
Strawesome is a family-owned and operated Michigan-based green company with a commitment to health and the environment. We offer fun, safe, and reusable glass drinking straws to people of all ages – making it easy to go green! Our straws are all hand-made in our workshop in Michigan and we take pride and care to offer the best products and service possible. I use my glass straws almost daily. I have a small straw and a larger straw (their smoothie straw) and equally love them both. I was so worried when I first got them that I would break them, but they are very strong (and they have a lifetime guarantee too). So far I haven’t broke one and they are so easy to clean. You and your family will love them.
Stevita is the one of the first companies to manufacture stevia and is dedicated to offering you the highest quality and best tasting stevia, supported by a long tradition in the stevia business. In 1988 the Stevita® brand, the first stevia table top sweetener in the world, was introduced in the local market. Stevia is cold water extracted and never mixed with anything toxic to the body (like other brands on the market). This is my FAVORITE stevia and the only powdered stevia I use in my cooking and to sweeten my lemonade, coffee and tea. It has no bitter aftertaste and mixes very well in recipes. It’s been a staple in my house and my purse (I get the packets) for the last 9 years. If you don’t like stevia or think you don’t like stevia, you have to try Stevita brand before swearing off stevia all together.
Spoonable Stevia: The sweetest tasting crystals produced by the stevia plant makes the contents of this package as sweet as 3 packets of sugar. To make it possible to package the powder in small individual servings and to make it easier to measure for cooking purposes, we add in erythritol,a bulking agent naturally extracted from fruits, vegetables, and grains. Unlike other fillers in the market such as lactose, maltodextrine, F.O.S., etc, erythritol has a very high digestive tolerance and is very safe for diabetics and zero glycemic index.
