Eco-Wednesday with Garden of Holly (+ GIVEAWAY!)

A little decision I've been toying with since Eco-Clean How-To Week - is to make Wednesdays a special weekly feature around here at my wee EVA Blog: Eco-Wednesdays! Each Wednesday will focus on eco-friendly DIY recipes, indie businesses (and maybe giveaways), lifestyle tips & tricks, and as you know - I love shopping...so of course, cool eco-friendly stuff. For our first Eco-Wednesday, we have a Guest Blogger, Holly Grippe, from Garden of Holly at Etsy (She's also our first Guest Blogger, yay!)!


Garden of Holly is proud to offer a line of beauty products and cleaning supplies that are non-toxic and synthetic free. All of our products are handcrafted in small batches and made to order.  We use only fresh organic, certified organic, and wild crafted ingredients.  Only therapeutic grade essential oils are used in our products.  Also, none of our materials are ever subjected to high heat. These facts, as well as obtaining almost 100% of our supplies from local suppliers, allow us to offer the most fresh and potent products possible.  Our products are rich in minerals and vitamins readily absorbed by the skin. 


I love introducing new customers to the radiance and health that can be experienced using healing aromatic herbs and oils. I feel that looking beautiful should not come at the expense of your health or the health of our planet. Men, women, young and old, all use personal care products every day. Soap, lotion, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, sunscreen, makeup, etc.; what products do you use daily? We feel it is important to know what’s coming in contact with your skin. At Garden of Holly, we recognize that everything you put on your skin enters your body through your pores and is carried throughout your entire body by the circulatory system. That is the reason we never use any parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, synthetic preservatives, artificial fragrances or dyes

Garden of Holly is excited to offer one lucky EVA Blog reader a wrapped, 4 0z. Healthy Hands Organic Protective Hand Cream! 



To enter the giveaway, just visit the Garden of Holly Etsy shop, and return to the EVA Blog with a comment about your favorite product! As always, extra entries can be obtained by tweeting, facebooking, and blogging the giveaway. Giveaway will run until April 23rd, 11:59 PST.

All the products looked great, but I would have to say what impressed me the most was that Garden of Holly is 90% plastic free. The product I would be interested in using, would be the soap. I will be purchasing some in the future.

The packaging for these products are really great. I really like the Organic Vegan Fragrance Free Castile Soap - it has organic avocado oil in it and is great for sensitive skin. I am so glad I found this lovely blog (via etsy giveaways) and discovered a great etsy shop.
