Bare Candle Company uses natural ingredients and premium fragrance oils

Bare Candle Company uses natural ingredients and premium fragrance oils

I am not sure what I am most excited about looking at my Bare Candle Company candles – burning these great scents or finding creative uses for these reusable jars when done. These bare candles are as natural as they look. Each candle is crafted with wax made entirely from soybeans grown in the United States. This reduces its carbon footprint while providing local jobs.

Bare candles are vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, and made with no paraffins, phthalates, parabens, or prop 65 chemicals. Aside from how sustainably made these are, the scents are fantastic.

I have 2 scents – Citrus + Fig and Eucalyptus + Spearmint. The scents are made with synthetic fragrance oils which protects natural resources as opposed to purely essential oils that take a lot of plants/earth to create enough scent for a number of candles. Bare Candle Co. scents are sustainable.

Every candle is made with 100% soy wax which offers a cleaner, longer burn. Visit bare Candle Co. to order your favorite scents and feel better about what you burn in you home around your family.

Urban Originals Nebula is made with vegan leather and recycled materials

Not only is my Urban Originals Nebula mini crossbody purse made responsibly, it has all the function I want in a small purse. Where do I start besides it even fits perfect right into my center console. It has a separate cell phone pouch and card holder. You can access these items within the outside of the crossbody for quick access. The main compartment holds makeup, keys and has plenty of room.

I have the blue color in the Nebula Crossbody and love it! You can also choose cream or taupe. The strap is long and removable. It also comes with a detachable pouch for your AirPods. The Nebula crossbody is made with quality vegan leather and brushed brass hardware as well as recycled materials where possible and works to very low chemical requirements.

I use mine everyday because it is so convenient and a great size. It is great while traveling because it is light and small yet carries everything I need.

The Suray Sunshirt by Coalatree fights odors and blocks sun rays

As summer comes we are planning camping trips and hikes and our weekends are filling up fast. In the Pacific Northwest the weather can go from hot to cold in no time. This is why I leave for morning hikes in layers and bring jackets in the RV even in the summer. This new Suray Sunshirt by Coalatree has been my hiking go-to!

If the trails are overcrowded, sometimes a stroll in the hills or high peak neighborhoods are nice especially with a shirt that protects against UV rays and combats odor-causing bacteria, mold, and fungi. It is done with the environmentally safe antimicrobial protection of zinc ions within superior nylon 6,6, creating yarns and fabrics that naturally provide UPF 50+ protection. It’s more than just a shirt, it functions!

The ions are embedded into the fabric rather than sprayed on like most. This means protection stays even after washes and makes it much more environmentally-friendly relying on zero added chemicals and waste. It also dries quick also!

I love the feel and stretch of this shirt. It comes in 4 colors – Sky Blue, Hexagon, Herring Bone, and Mountain Line. I have the Mountain Line pattern. It fits true to size with a longer waist that I love. It even has a zipper pocket to store ID, Keys and even a small wallet. Find your style on their Kickstarter page where you can get early-bird pricing and availability – Suray Sunshirt by Coalatree in partnership with Acteev.
