With no official certification for natural home products, the term has become deluded as a marketing term. With many companies not fully disclosing ingredients, it can be hard to discern what really is non-toxic and safe for your home. It is equally difficult when looking at body products.
We were sent products by M.boutique, a company offering “Luxury by Nature products” inspired by a boy’s love for his mother who was diagnosed with cancer:
Whilst my mom went through radiation I became obsessed with researching household cleaning products. I purchased so many products that my home began to look like a makeshift storage unit. I wanted to know everything I could about each product from safety to efficacy. In the end, I realized to please my mother’s sensibilities for clean and my sensibilities toward an environmentally and human friendly product I’d have to create it myself.
These products are all sodium laurel sulfate free, but the laundry detergent has sodium laureth sulfate. The body products’ ingredients are easily read and understandable, a good sign indeed! The cleaning products have some products with chemical sounding names, like hydroxyethlmonium which is synthetically derived from palm oil and has a hazard score of 0 from the Environmental Working Group.
We were sent the following products to try:

JASMINE WHITE PEPPER CANDLE
Turn your home into an exotic destination. Wanderlust. Wild jasmine has held the intrigue of poets for thousands of years. And M. Boutique’s Jasmine White Pepper Candle elegantly exudes this “moonlight of the grove”, whose vine like seductive scent naturally peaks late into the night. Exquisitely provocative. Delightfully warming. The sweetly exotic, fruity-tea undertones of jasmine are uniquely harmonized with deep, grounding undertones of white pepper spice. Soothing. Enchanting. Utterly sensual. Approximately 40 hours of burn time.
I think the flavors of these products is quite interesting. The idea of “smoke” at first somewhat repelled me. Don’t worry, this is not cigarette smoke flavored lotion! I really don’t know what the “smoke” is referring to.
The linen mist smells great in the car. It helps get rid of that doggy and surfboard smell.
