October 2013 Articles

I expect that by the time this publishes, the Bump will have arrived 🙂 Here are some great fitness/health-related articles I’ve gathered over the month, as well as a few links some might find interest in browsing (store-related websites I happened to find and/or hear about from others). I hope your October begins with fresh, crisp autumn air, delicious apples, the thrill of the pumpkin harvest, and yummy foods to be found at the farmer’s market.

Bamboobies (a nursing pad company seeking to make products that are sustainable, reusable, and user-friendly; often have great giveaways for breastfeeding mothers)

Motherlove (a highly-recommended brand for parents seeking organic, safe and sustainable methods for encouraging breastfeeding and tackling the ails of infancy; an herbal company–as always, check with a physician before use)

Mountain Rose Herbs (a website I recently re-stumbled upon through a blog post which carries an assortment of things, from natural herbs and spices to essential oils and carrier oils, from clays to glass jars; which strives to maintain fair-trade, organic quality products)

NaturOli (Soap nuts are a new concept to me, one I’m hoping to learn more about and blog about in the future; a good place to start researching for those interested in an alternative, environmentally-friendly way to wash clothes…and many other things besides; here is the home site)


PLEASE NOTE: I do not advertise for any specific company. I merely point out ones that have caught my interest. Please always do your own research before purchasing products, and consult family practitioners whenever possible before starting any alternative health regimen.
