Natural Health with Maty’s Healthy Products

Product was given to me in order to post my honest opinion.


I love the cooler weather, but it means that someone in my family is inevitably going to get sick. My kids are in school and I work at a school, so we are around kids for a majority of our week. My family takes vitamins and supplements daily, along with eating a healthy, balanced diet, but that doesn’t always keep us from catching the latest germ that is going around. When one of us starts to feel under the weather, I turn to natural remedies, essential oils, and natural products I can buy online or at my local grocery store.


One company that I trust with my families health is Maty’s Healthy Products. They offer a wide variety of natural products for the whole family.

Bare Body Soap ~ Organic Soap & Lip Blam {Review/Sponsor Spotlight} #MamaMadness


Here I go again! Handmade organic soap! I will rave about it till the end of time!


I have come across another awesome handmade soap company that is mom owned and run. Bare Body Soap is run by Roseanne Muncy, who was inspired by nature that soap should be bare and non-toxic. She uses the cold process method to create vegan and cruelty-free organic soap. She uses organic oils, essential oils, and botanicals to create her soap line. I love that she uses sustainable ingredients and eco-friendly packaging.  These soaps are truly luxurious!



Lip Balm

Bare Body Soaps not only carries Organic Soap, but also Lip Balm, Bath Tea, Laundry Detergent, Soap Bags and Gift Sets. I was sent the Organic French Green Clay Soap, the Organic Patchouli Orange Soap and Almond Lip Balm. First, I want to let you know that the Almond Lip Balm smells just like almond extract! I love the way that stuff smells and when I got it, that was the first thing I thought of. It is made with natural ingredients and essential oils. It also feels ultra-light, yet moisturizing. I love it!


The soap is also amazing! They are soft and easily lather! The Organic French Green Clay Soap is scented with orange and cedarwood essential oil. The french green clay gives it its’ nice green color. Did you know that clay draws toxins out of your skin, can tighten pores, tone the skin, gently exfoliate, and can reduce inflammation from acne? These are all great reasons why you should love this soap! It also helps promote blood flow and increase circulation. When I think of soaps that involve clay, I think of super rich, moisturizing soaps. This soap hold up to that thought. I love the way that this soap makes my skin feel!


The Patchouli Orange Soap smells amazing! It is made with orange, peppermint and patchouli essential oils. I know that some people either love patchouli or hate it, but I love the way it smells, especially mixed with the orange. I love that these soaps look so pure and organic. No bright or unnatural colors! No fragrance oils! I love the simpleness and effectiveness of organic soap!


I love my products and I love that this mom made company is on a mission to create organic and natural products. You can purchase all Bare Body Soaps online. The Organic Soap bars are $6 and the Lip Balm is $2.99. There is a$6 flat rate shipping and free shipping on a purchase of $25 or more!

What you put on your face matters! {Read Labels}


When it comes to my beauty routine, I make sure that the products I use are made with natural and organic ingredients. It is important to me that what I put on my body and face is chemical and toxin free. Whatever you put on your skin will seep into your body. This means that if you rub parabans ans dyes all over your skin, that is what your body will absorb.


Over the years I have learned a lot about chemicals that are found in beauty products. I also learned the difference between essential oils and fragrance oils. Make sure that the products you buy are made with essential oils and not fragrance oils. Fragrance oils are synthetic, which means they are chemically derived. Essential oils are plant derived, which means they come directly from the source. “Natural” and “Organic” products should have ingredients that reflect that!

Pangea Organics Facial Cream Italian Red Mandarin with Rose - 2 oz.
