natural automatic dishwasher powder

I finally came across a natural automatic dishwasher powder that is chlorine free, phosphate free & sulfate free, it's Nellie's All-Natural Automatic Dishwasher Nuggets! The powder comes in easy to use portioned nuggets that you place in the main dispenser and it's biodegradable. It's easy to find at or It works really well, the load comes out sparkling & clean; I also use their rinse agent and it's great!

Natural Flea & Tick Treatment for Dogs

If you have a pet, then this is a must product for you. For the first time ever, I found ticks on our beloved puppy (he's 9!). I didn't want to give him the traditional preventative chemical based treatment and went on a mission to find him a natural tick treatment. After trying several (they definitely didn't work), I stumbled upon what I refer to as the 'miracle spray'. Nature's Defender is 100% all natural, DEET-free and safe to use on your pets. It's made of cedar oil and silane fluid, and if you don't mind the smell of pine cones or a cedar forest then you'll want to try it!!! You can get it at or call 1-866-599-0449. "Finally a product that is safe and is far superior to any chemicals that you've been using ... endorsed by the U.S.D.A. leading scientist Dr.Bradford." The application is simple, I parted his hair on his back and neck and sprayed a small amount and massaged it in all over. Wouldn't you know that the only place I didn't put it he got a tick, back to the spray bottle for him!! We haven't used it in a bit and they haven't come back. It is also available for your lawn and home. The perfect pest solution for your furry, four-legged family members!

Perfect Toxin-Free iPhone Cover

I love my iPhone 3G and needed a nice but practical cover, which I found at . They have a great selection of colors and styles. I bought the swirling series in white-- it looks great, it's easy to grip, doesn't stick and most importantly it doesn't slip easily. The best part-- it's "lead, mercury and cadmium (a toxic metal) safe." I can't wait to get more colors! They also have covers for the iPod Touch & Nano, Blackberry and more.

Non-Stick Toxic Free Skillet/Frying Pans

After searching for a long time, I finally found a non-stick toxic free skillet. Instead of using a Petroleum/Teflon/Silicon coating, Cuisinart Green Gourmet uses a ceramic nonstick coating which is PTFE & PFOA free and has a hard anodized aluminum interior and exterior making it less susceptible to damage and thus minimizing leaching of toxins. These pans are even more non-stick than Teflon/Silicon, they're truly amazing! I've put them through tough meals and so far nothing has gotten stuck to it and I don't have to scrub forever to get food off (even if it's been sitting overnight!) I bought the Cuisinart "GreenGourmet" pans at BED BATH & BEYOND. They have a great selection of skillets and I especially love the square grill pan.

Organic Caramel Candy

They're DELICIOUS!! After trying several brands and types of candy, I found one that is so good (caramel flavor but they make all sorts of candies including Lollipops) and tastes so much like any other hard caramel candy. It has great texture, melts like any other candy and best of all, it's organic. College Farm Organic makes these awesome hard candies, I bought them at Tunies Nutrition Center; but
college farm organic has a list of where to buy these yummy candies near you and delicious organics sells them too. They're also environmentally friendly-- the label says "... the wrappers are made of a fully-compostable material made from renewable resources...", they also have NO Gluten, Nuts, Soy,Eggs or GMO's. They're so great-- I love these candies!!!
