Hey there natural product lovers! Alicia from Getting Green with Baby here to share with you a little about our Etsy store Cottage in the Woods Co.
Ever since our daughter was born in October of 2012, my husband, John, and I have been looking for more and more ways to live a greener lifestyle. Our biggest goals were (and still are) to make everyday products when we are able to save money (who doesn’t enjoy that?) and use products that don’t have a bunch of fillers and other nasty, unnecessary chemicals in them. We have enjoyed making these items so much and love spreading the word about natural and organic products that we decided to start offering some of them to the public!
Currently we are still a very small business (I feel kind of silly even calling it a business), but what we do offer are staples of everyday life. Plus, all of our bath and body products and all purpose cleaners are all natural! We currently offer bath fizzies, bar soap, liquid hand soap, body wash, shampoo bars, and, as I mentioned, all purpose household cleaners. We are constantly working on new recipes and products to offer, so be sure to check back often! We are always open for suggestions as well. 🙂
I have to say that our natural bath fizzies have been quite the popular item. You don’t have to take my word for it, of course, but I’m not usually one to toot my own horn. However, our bath bombs are the best ones I’ve ever used in my life! We use essential oils to scent everything naturally (except for our Vanilla-Orange scent, unfortunately. It does contain both fragrance and essential oils.) so not only do the fizzies make your bath and skin smell wonderful, it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth as well! Just in time for cold season, we released some Cold & Flu Natural Fizzy Bath Bombs last month as well! Let me tell you, these things are potent!

As you read above, we sell shampoo bars, which I’m really excited about! I first heard about shampoo bars some time around spring of last year. I was able to try one from a different company in August and fell in love with them instantly! I will admit it’s a little different using them at first, but I love that our shampoo bars offer a natural alternative to commercial shampoos. They don’t contain SLS, parabens, or any of that other nasty junk! They strip all of the bad oil from your hair caused by shampoo and conditioner build up, but still leave the good oil in your hair.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read about our little business. I hope you find something you like or at the very least get inspired to make your own products!
