Ecocentric Mom: Mommy & Me October Box

The theme for October was the Heathy Home Collection. It was filled with mostly items for your home and I loved it.

Here is what came in my October Mom & Baby Box:


Lilac Moon Company Laundry Suds in Citrus Scent 
Sample Size

Such a great laundry soap! I used this on our towels and my husband and I’s bed sheets. They came out super soft and smelling like citrus. I will be purchasing more laundry suds in the future. 

Simply Earth 100% Wool Dryer Balls 
$10.00

For a year now I have wanted wool dryer balls and was so exited to get these in my box this month. I have been using them all month long. I put a little orange essential oil on them and toss them in with a load in the dryer. Our clothes come out smelling amazing and super soft. If you haven’t used dryer balls, you should. They are game changers in the laundry room and no more tossing dryer sheets in the trash! 

Eek Halloween! by Sandra Boynton 
$6.99

My kids love books so it was nice to get a new book. We have read this book often and my toddler adores it. Sandra Boynton books are some of our favorites.


Coconut Karma Portable Coconut Oil 
$4.00

I have used this portable coconut oil in my hair as well as in my coffee. It’s simple to use but I have to hide it cause my kids thought it was applesauce and tried to eat it! 

Puracy Natural Washroom Spray in Lavender & Vanilla Scent 
$9.99

Who doesn’t love the smell of lavender and vanilla? I love this spray and it doesn’t give me headache like typical sprays with harsh chemicals.

Nature’s Baby Organics Conditioner & Detangler in Vanilla Tangerine Scent 

I have tried a lot of different conditioners and detangler sprays on my daughter’s hair but I officially am loving Nature’s Baby Organics! It smells like a orange creamsicle and leaves my daughter’s long hair soft, tangle free, and smelling delicious. 

I know I say this every month that I get my box from Ecocentric Mom’s, but y’all deserve to treat yourself! You now have the option of selecting two items in your box each month and they have expanded the membership options to include Pregnancy, Mom & Baby, Mom & Toddler (which was the option I chose), and just Mom. You can even skip months now and shipping is always free. The cost for a box from Ecocentric Mom’s is $27.99 and it is totally worth it. I have enjoyed all the items that I have received the past six months and my tot really liked the surprises in the box that came for her.


Why You Should Know About More Love Co. Hair Bows + Giveaway!

This post has been brought you by More Love Co. and contains affiliate links. I was not financially compensated for this post; however, received product for free to write this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own based of my experience with the products.


As a mom I am always looking to find pretty accessories to put in my daughter’s hair. Aurora is incredibly girly and every morning asks me to brush her hair and put a pretty in it so she can go about her day. She has all sorts of different hair bows, clips, and headbands that I have found at all sorts of places, many of them from small shops on Etsy. 

My sister-in-law has a friend that is a young entrepreneur who recently started up her own small business. Her little shop on the web is called More Love Co. and is based out of Olympia, Washington. She was sweet enough to gift my daughter a few of her bows. They are lovely and have become some of Aurora’s favorite hair accessories.  She is smitten over the Frayed Pink Bow and often refers to it as “Poppy.” For all you mom’s out there, you must be aware of the infamous Trolls movie too. The girl is obsessed with it! 

What I love about More Love Co. is that they have one goal in mind and that goal is “to have something for the extra girly side of all of us."(quoted from the site).” They have everything from lace headbands, to cute cat ears, and simple bows. They are also very affordable and would make a cute gift for birthdays and the holiday season. Product ranges from $3 to $12 and would make a great stocking stuffer for the little girl in your life.
