As an adult and a mom, it feels like you are constantly making decisions that affect every aspect of your life and that of your child’s. There are decisions to be made even before the birth of your child! Some are just incredibly easy and others are a bit more complicated and require research and thought. Luckily, Tom’s Of Maine is helping us make these decisions a little bit easier.
Choosing to feed my family a wholesome and fresh diet? That was easy.
Choosing to purchase and use more natural cosmetics and household items? Another easy choice.
We have these bodies of ours only once, so it’s so important to take care of them inside and out. But why do we so often forget about one of the products we use daily, that we travel with, that we freak out over if we think we’ve forgotten it? I’m talking about deodorant!
I have to say, when you find one that you like, it is hard to be swayed away from it. Maybe you’re brand loyal, or the fresh scent draws you in, or the price is just right, we all have “the one” we turn to. But once you do a little research into deodorants, aluminum, petroleum, and other commonly-used ingredients, you’ll hesitate to reach for a brand that isn’t the #1 natural deodorant available. Plus, they make it in a whole range of amazing scents. My favorite is the Wild Lavender!
My daughter and I made the switch to Tom’s of Maine 24-Hour Long Lasting Deodorant a year ago, and we haven’t gone back. We were thrilled to try it at first, and I can speak from experience now that I’m glad we made the switch. If I’m so concerned about what goes into our bodies, I should be just as concerned about what goes on the surface – deodorant, soap, makeup, etc.
If you are unfamiliar with Tom’s of Maine, they are the #1 natural deodorant brand with a number of award-winning products among its deodorant portfolio. I’ve written about them before and love havng their products in my home and as part of our daily routines.
Why I switched is pretty simple, really. I’ve long been aware of the ingredients in our food and when I started my first small garden, my entire world changed. It’s funny how one change can snowball into this whole lifestyle takeover, but it’s truly become a part of who we are.
Have you ever had a moment in your life where you just had a breakthrough and decided to make some changes? I think it happens to all of us at some point to a varying degree. Small or large changes occur in our lifestyles and can easily trigger that snowball effect of many changes. But change is a good thing! Literally switching to Tom’s of Maine has allowed me to continue to stay true to my passion of more natural products for my whole family, which is something I’m truly thankful for.
