Melaleuca Products: The Power of Nature

I was reminded recently of just why I love Melaleuca products so much. They are not the cheapest on the market, but they are natural, bio-degradable, non-toxic to the environment and the user, as well as allergy friendly. And they work. They work extremely well.

What are Melaleuca Products?

This video explains the evolution of Melaleuca products as well as how and why they work. It also touches on the business side of the company. If you are interested in becoming a preferred customer (PC) to ensure you get the best prices and other perks, contact me to help you with the process.

I started using them years ago when I finally noticed how my body reacted to other cleaning products and personal care products.

My Favourite Melaleuca Products

There are tons of products, from make-up to cleaning products with healthy food and drink items, vitamins and supplements too. Here are just a few of my favourites:

Cleaning Products

This post was inspired this morning when I was cleaning the top of my kitchen cupboards prior to decorating them for the Christmas season. Don’t judge me, but this is about the only time these cupboard tops get a good cleaning. I am always amazed at how dusty and dirty they get. For this specific task, I choose Melamagic, a heavy-duty cleaner. I also use this miraculous cleaner to wash floors at the cottage and home and even to get rid of the black gunky stuff in our pedal boat every spring. It comes in liquid form (just add a bit to your bucket of water) or in handy wipes.

Soluguard, concocted from thyme and lemon, is my go-to for spraying door handles, kitchen, and bathroom counters etc. It too comes in liquid or wipes. The wipes are great to keep in your purse for cleaning things you come in contact with outside your home. This was (still is) particularly helpful during our obsession with the Covid-19 virus.

I am also fond of Melaleuca dish soap, dishwasher pods, and laundry soap.

Make-Up and Personal Care Products

Although I don’t order the make-up products (I don’t use much) I do like their unscented, aluminum-free deodorant and their lip balm. There are many flavours of lip balm to choose from that include protection from the sun. These are perfect for outdoor sports and for those of us that work outdoors. I order lots for stocking stuffers as my whole family (including the men and grandkids) love them.

I’m also stuck on Renew Body Lotion as a moisturizer that I slather all over, especially after showering and before bedtime. It makes a great make-up remover too, safe for use all over your face, including around your eyes. Renew comes in a few sizes, from purse size (also great for stocking stuffers) to the largest, most economical pump bottle.

Essential Oils

Another category of Melaleuca products I love and order regularly are essential oils. I use them to make my own bug spray, air fresheners, skincare, and more.

Burt’s Bees: 100% Natural Products

Burt's Bees

I would like to introduce you to the awesome line of 100% natural skincare products from Burt’s Bees. If you haven’t already done so, you should try them. My skin is ultra sensitive, so I have to watch which products I let touch my skin.

I’m not quite sure why I am hooked on these products as I have had several encounters with some not so friendly bees in my gardening career. Generally though, I do love bees and do my best to support their dwindling presence.

Burt’s Bees products are made with authentic beeswax with added vitamins, ingredients, and nutrients depending on the product. This is an excerpt from their website describing what is and what is not in their products…

There is a wide range of Burt’s Bees products available from lip balm to dark spot corrector. To check out or purchase these amazing products through Amazon, click on the links below the specific pictures…

My Favourites…so far

So far I have tried the facial oil, the deep cleanser and the dark spot corrector. I love them all, especially the way they make my skin feel. I also love the light scent too although I am not sure how to describe it. Natural, perhaps honey-like?

The deep cleanser is perfect for removing the dirt from my gardens as well as the sunscreen the dirt is stuck on. I purchased the dark spot corrector to see if the revolutionary ingredient of Bakuchiol, a natural alternative to retinol, can help diminish the dark spots I have been trying to erase from my face for 24 years now, ever since I was pregnant with my youngest son. I just started using this product, will let you know if it is effective.
