products I love

Here is something you need to know about me. I am fussy. Really fussy - about everything.

 

From what I put on our skin, to what we eat, to what materials we use at home and given that I work a lot with skin and gut health, I make decisions based around clean ingredients that don't cost the earth and do what they say they do.

I'm giving chemical sh*t-storms the middle finger 🖕 and doing my part to make amazing products with decent ingredients the norm, after becoming increasingly frustrated at the amount of crappy products with expensive marketing designed to keep people in a perpetual cycle of reliance. As consumers, we have the power to drive change.

 

As I am often asked about products, brands or stores that I use or would recommend, I have put together this list. I've also included discount codes where possible - if I'm missing anything just let me know.

INSTANT POT SS PRESSURE COOKER    BUY HERE
