Resources

Tried and true resources and products to help you create a healthy and organized home!

Cleaning

 

Non-toxic cleaning products and tools that I use and stand behind.  They’re made with clean and safe ingredients to keep you and your family healthy!

branch basics

Branch Basics Concentrate – This concentrate is non-toxic and is all you need to clean every room in your home. I love that the starter set comes with the concentrate and several bottles to make all purpose cleaner, bathroom cleaner, window cleaner, and more. Use this link to get $10 off your first order!

Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Liquid Soap – uses clean, non-toxic ingredients, is effective, and can be used for SO many things. I use this concentrate in my homemade all purpose cleaner.

Amber Glass Spray Bottles – I love these glass bottles! I have SEVERAL and use them for my homemade cleaning products. The amber glass helps prevent essential oils from deteriorating from sunlight.

Pure Natural Washing Soda – This is the natural, organic washing soda I use in my homemade laundry detergent.

Wool Dryer Balls – I use these in place of dryer sheets. I add a few drops of essential oil to 2-3 (usually lavender) and pop them in the dryer. They soften clothes, add a great (natural!) scent to your clothes, and shorten drying time. I love that they’re non-toxic and better for the environment. No waste!

Shark Professional Steam Mop – I love this thing! It cleans my floors well without using any harsh chemicals – just steam. Sometimes I add lemon essential oil to the water to add a fresh scent and to help cleanse.

Shark Rotator Professional Vacuum Cleaner – This vacuum cleaner is lightweight, bagless, and so easy to use. Just empty the canister when it gets full.  No wasting bags!

Organizing

 

Organizing Cart – I love this organizing cart! I use one to store my kids’ art supplies and one to store my teaching supplies. It is easy to put together and holds up very well! (Watch my IG Organizing highlight to see how I used it.)

Y Weave Medium Storage Bin – These bins are great for organizing all sorts of things in the home! I used them in my organizing cart.

Y Weave Small Storage Bin – Great bins that I use in my organizing cart.

Y Weave Mini Storage Bin – more cute storage bins!

3-Pack Medium Storage Trays – These are great for storing little art supplies!

3-Pack Long Storage Trays – I love these for storing pencils and other writing/drawing supplies.

4-Pack Small Storage Bins – Cute, in-expensive bins for organizing the home!

Erin Condren Life Planner – I love my Erin Condren Planner. It helps keep me on track with my goals and to-do lists!

Bloom Planner – This is another great planner I use.  It’s more simple and thinner than the Erin Condren one, making it easier to carry around.

Meal Planning Bundle – These are my meal planning calendars for the whole year, grocery list, and meal prep checklist to make meal planning those healthy meals easier!  

Kitchen

 

Popsicle Molds – These have a top to avoid spills and a funnel to help pour your popsicle mixture without spilling! The popsicles pop right out after they’re frozen!

Natural Jute Twine – great for hanging fresh herbs to dry!

Marble Mortar and Pestle – great for grinding freshly dried herbs from the garden!

Lodge Dutch Oven – great for making kombucha, sourdough bread, braising meat, and more! And it’s safe and non-toxic!

Glass Food Storage Containers -In my effort to reduce toxins in my home, I’ve switched to using glass containers to store food, instead of plastic.  I love these ones!

Cuisinart 12-inch Skillet – This pan is great! I doesn’t release toxins into your food, like Teflon-coated pans do.  It’s great for pan-searing, sautéing, or cooking something with a sauce.

Green Pan Lima Ceramic Pan – This little pan is perfect for cooking eggs. I use this almost daily! It has a non-stick ceramic coating, that is safe and non-toxic.

Lodge Cast Iron Skillet with Silicone Handle – A good cast iron skillet is pretty much essential to any kitchen. It is so versatile!  I love that you can use it on the stove, in the oven, or over a campfire. Also, cooking with a cast iron pan adds some iron to your food, which is great if you have an iron deficiency.

Bamboo Salt Container – Salt is the seasoning used most often, so I like the idea of storing it in this cute container right next to the stove.

Soda Stream Sparkling Water Maker – I enjoy drinking sparkling water when I want to break up the monotony of regular water. I love using to make my own sparkling water with different fruit combinations to add some flavor!

Sourdough Bread Banneton Basket and Tools – This kit comes with mostly everything you need to make homemade sourdough bread (just add water, flour, salt, starter, a mixing bowl, and a Dutch oven). It includes a dough scraper for shaping your loaves, a proofing basket, a linen cover, a scoring lame, and replacement blades.

Glass Swing Top Bottles – I use these bottles to make kombucha. They seal air-tight; so they’re perfect for the second fermentation.

Glass Beverage Dispenser with Spigot -This is similar to the glass container I use to make kombucha. I use this (without the lid on) for the first fermentation, before bottling in the air-tight bottles.

Instant Pot – I love my Instant Pot! It makes cooking dinner so much faster! This is the Instant Pot of all Instant Pots with the options to pressure cook, sauté, air fry, steam, slow cook, dehydrate, and more!

Milk Frother – This milk frother works great at frothing my almond milk for my coffee or matcha, without having to pay for an expensive espresso machine.

Reusable Food Storage Bags – I use these bags to store food, to avoid one-time use plastic, to live more sustainably. I love that they’re BPA and BPS Free.

Health & Wellness

 

Foam Roller – Great for massaging your muscles and relieving tension.  Check my IG reels to see some ways I use my foam roller to relieve neck and upper back tension.

Organic Elderberries – I use these to make elderberry syrup.  So simple to make and great for immune health!

Gaia Herbs Adrenal Health Daily Support -I’ve dealt with adrenal fatigue due to stress, and this helped support my adrenals and really helped me respond to stress better. 

Adren-All – I’m currently using this adrenal supplement.  It is similar to the Gaia Herbs one, but contains some different ingredients, like a blend of vitamins. This one seems to work a little better with helping me deal with stress and increase my energy.  I can feel a big difference when I take this! I feel much more patient and relaxed.  

Silicone Cupping Set – Watch my video on IGTV (@brittbringsithome) to see how and why I do cupping. Cupping with these has helped so much with relieving muscle tension and pain in my body.

Leefy Organics Prana – This supplement contains turmeric (great natural anti-inflammatory super food), ginger (helps relieve pain and inflammation), black pepper (increases the absorption of the turmeric and ginger), and vegetable glycerin (derived from plant oils and helps with nutrient absorption). It works great for reducing pain and inflammation naturally.

Cannovia Peppermint CBD Oil – CBD oil has so many benefits, like reducing pain, helping with digestive issues, colds, headaches, sleep, and relaxation. I love that this one also peppermint essential oil, which adds to the pain-relieving benefits.

100% Pure Absorbic Acid Vitamin C – I love this Vitamin C because is has no sugar! It is 100% pure Absorbic Acid. No sugar allows the Vitamin C to be absorbed more and used by the body to strengthen the immune system, rather than neutralizing the free radicals caused by the sugar. We are taking this to strengthen our immune systems during cold/flu/COVID season.

Thorne Vitamin D/K2 – Vitamin D and Vitamin K2 work together to support a healthy immune system, as well as healthy bones, muscles, and heart. We’re taking this daily during cold/flu/COVID season.

Just Thrive Probiotics – This is a great spore-based probiotic that survives your harsh stomach environment and makes it to your gut. It supports gut and immune health.

Mary Ruth’s Morning Multivitamin -I love how clean this multivitamin is! It doesn’t have sugar as one of it’s main ingredients, as many multivitamins do. In fact there’s ZERO added sugars. It’s naturally sweetened with some vegetable glycerin and noni juice. It’s also safe to use for children.

Eidon Ionic Minerals Zinc – We’re also taking this Zinc supplement daily to prevent cold, flue, and COVID. It helps support the immune system, combat stress, support healthy skin and hair, and support healthy endocrine system.

Blue Bonnet Super Quercetin – This is a natural anti-histamine that’s an antioxidant found in foods like apples, onions, and green tea.

Activated Charcoal – I’ve added this activated charcoal powder in my baths and have mixed it in a glass of water to drink to help remove toxins.  I’ve also used it as a teeth whitener. Just add some water, apply to teeth, let sit for about 10 minutes, and rinse out!

Clean Beauty

 

Attitude Shower Gel – This shower gel is non-toxic and won’t dry your skin out!

Aleavia Body Wash – This is another body wash I’m LOVING. Not only is it super clean and non-toxic, it is also GOOD for the skin. It’s has prebiotics to help level the pH in the skin and feed the good bacteria on your skin (yes, your skin needs to have bacteria on it, just like your gut does). It is so nourishing and doesn’t dry the skin out at all.

Kiss My Face Whenever Shampoo – This is a super clean, nourishing shampoo that I use and love!

Thrive Market Coconut Oil – Thrive Market has the best deal on coconut oil. Only $20 for this huge thing that lasts forever! I use coconut oil for a lot of my baking. It has a smoke point of 350 degrees, so I wouldn’t use it for roasting or cooking at temperatures higher than that.

Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo – healthy mayo made with simple, clean ingredients and no inflammatory vegetable oil.
