NEW! Insect Repellent Spray, Repel Blend and Refill!

NEW! Insect Repellent Spray, Repel Blend and Refill!
Insect Repellent certainly doesn't seem like the most exciting or glamorous product, but if you have ever tried to enjoy a warm summer evening outside and have been eaten alive by mosquitoes, you know how valuable a good repellent is. But nobody likes to smell stinky, or feel sticky, or knowingly slather questionable toxins on their skin. So we choose between what we consider to be the lessor of two evils. Well, now you don't have to!  Continue reading

Healthy Skin Swaps: Hand + Surface Spray

Healthy Skin Swaps: Hand + Surface Spray
Have you looked at the ingredients in your hand sanitizer lately? What about the ingredients for products you use to clean your phone, or your steering wheel or other small surfaces that you come in contact with regularly? Would you want to lick your phone or steering wheel after using them? Sounds a little silly, but the point is, what we touch gets transferred and absorbed and even ingested in small amounts.  Continue reading

Celebrating Motherhood: From Babies to Business

Celebrating Motherhood: From Babies to Business
I have wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember. In fact, I never imagined myself not being a mother. I married my high school sweetheart at 23 and had my kids at 27, 29 and 32. As much as I had dreamt about and planned for motherhood, I really had no idea what it would really be like. How magical pregnancy would be, how powerful I would feel giving birth and how anxious I would feel about caring for and protecting a real human being. Becoming a mother, changed me. Not once, but all 3 times. Continue reading

BREATHE with Zoe Organics

BREATHE with Zoe Organics
With all of the illnesses going around, plus Spring in the air (hello, allergies!), we want to talk about two of our star products, Breathe Balm and Breathe Blend. *edited to add: This blog post was ready to go live today, however, we feel like we should edit it in light of COVID-19 and events surrounding it. Grocery stores are continually empty, after school activities and sports are cancelled, Disneyland is closed until further notice, and schools are closing left and right. We want to support our community in any way we can. Zoe Organics will continue to go make and ship product for as long as possible. Continue reading

Caring for Baby's Sensitive Skin

Caring for Baby's Sensitive Skin
Caring for your baby's delicate skin doesn't have to be complicated. In fact, it should be really simple, with gentle, nourishing ingredients. Sure, rashes, irritation and even eczema do present challenges, but are often the result of internal imbalances or allergies and too much bathing or using unnecessary products can just exacerbate the issue. After more than 10 years taking care of our own kids and our littlest customers, and working with pediatricians and moms, we have a pretty good handle on how to care for baby's sensitive skin. Read on for our practical guide. Continue reading

Non-toxic Scented Play Dough Recipe

Non-toxic Scented Play Dough Recipe
My 8 year old daughter loves to cook and make crafts and is very tactile. She is always asking to make slime, but I'm not a big fan of slime ingredients. Play dough, on the other hand, is simple to make and uses kitchen staples that I can feel good about her playing with. We decided to make play dough for her to give to her 3rd grade class this week at their Christmas party, and we had a lot of fun taking a basic recipe and making it our own. If you are looking for an easy activity to do while your kids are home this holiday break, consider making this fun, scented play dough, using one of our essential oil blends to kick up the sensory enjoyment a notch.  Continue reading

What is Aromatherapy?

What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is often referred to as "a blend of science and art". I have been studying aromatherapy for more than 10 years, and I love this description. I wholeheartedly believe in the power of plants and find so much joy in getting creative with blends and scents. Just like art, aromatherapy is very personal.  Continue reading

Eczema: Common Culprits, How to Treat it Naturally + a Giveaway (closed)!

Eczema: Common Culprits, How to Treat it Naturally + a Giveaway (closed)!
One of the most common questions we receive is "What products do you recommend for eczema?" This gets a little tricky because although we do have products to help nourish and soothe severe dry skin and eczema, there are so many factors that can contribute to this frustrating condition and will often require more than a topical remedy.  Continue reading

A Breast Cancer Survivor Story

A Breast Cancer Survivor Story
October is Breast Cancer awareness month and I am honored to be able to share the inspiring story of my dear friend, Rebekah Davis. Rebekah and I met and became inseparable in 2nd grade. We literally chose the same sports, instruments, hobbies and spent most of our free time together - playing make-believe, creating and laughing. We were in the same class all the way through the 12th grade, sharing so many celebrations and milestones. Later we both got married and had 3 kids each.  Continue reading
