my favorite thrive market products

Nearly every month (sometimes twice a month), I make a purchase from Thrive Market. The best way I can describe Thrive Market is like a mini-Amazon, but with wholesale prices (25-50% below retail price) on products I feel confident buying. They offer a wide variety of food, health, and household essentials. The products sold at Thrive are healthy, natural, and free of any of the main-stream harmful ingredients we see so often in most things we’d pick up at a grocery store.

The following are a few of my favorite things from this lovely company:

Thrive Market

1 // Dr. Bronner’s Castile Liquid Soap

This bottle (32 fl. oz.) costs me about $17 at Target (honest & true), but I get it at Thrive for $10.95. It’s the only soap I’m comfortable using on a daily basis, and it lasts me a decent amount of time. And I love the smell – peppermint! Lavender!

2 // Paleo Baking Ingredients

It can be so pricey to get things like almond flour, coconut flour, or arrowroot powder at a grocery store. Like, really expensive. So whenever I’m placing a thrive order, I check my stock of these favorites and purchase when I’m in need. They’re a good 30%+ off what I would pay at a store around here. And I trust the brands on Thrive as well.

3 // Dr. Bronner’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

This brand of coconut oil (the 30 oz jar) costs $20 on amazon, but $14.95 at Thrive. We go through a lot of coconut oil at our house, so the bigger the jar I can get the better. As much as I love those inexpensive jars at Trader Joe’s (which we don’t have around here anyway), they’re just so small!

4 // Herbal Tea

I’ve transitioned recently to drinking much more herbal tea, trying to slowly replace my coffee habit (which I don’t think will ever fully happen, but it’s definitely an occasional treat now!). They have brands like Yogi and Traditional Medicinal, which I love. Their teas are over 30% less than standard prices on amazon or in-store. So I stock up. My favorites are honey lavender (yogi), echinacea (traditional medicinal), ginger (traditional medicinal).

5 // Mrs. Meyer’s Cleaning Products

Mrs. Meyer’s is the only brand of cleaning products I have besides those I make myself. I use the dish soap and hand soap, both about 30% less than retail. And once again, those smells. So fresh. I particularly love the geranium & lavender.

6 // Vitamins & Supplements

These are the real steals. Vitamins and other supplements can be an expensive health choice. But I do believe in the power of a few choice products, and these can be up to 50% off. A few of the ones I invest in through Thrive Market are Natural Vitality Magnesium (powder form), Garden of Life Raw brand (zinc, vitamin b-complex – all good), and Vital Proteins Pasture (beef gelatin).

Other notable mentions:

  • Organic Coconut Milk
  • Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Organic Raw Honey
  • Grass-fed Beef Jerkey
  • Tom’s of Maine products (toothpaste, mouthwash)
  • AND SO MUCH MORE!

If you like what you see, I encourage you to signup! You will get a 30-day FREE trial pus 15% off your first order! They are super kind over at Thrive, and they personalize everything. If you’re not enjoying the service, you can cancel at anytime. After the first 30 days, you will be enrolled for a one-year membership for $59.95.

Finally, I was not compensated for this post or asked to write this, I just really love Thrive Market! But if you do sign up through my referral link, I’ll get a little bit of credit to shop with. 🙂

 

Entering the World of Essential Oils

I’ve recently gotten into essential oils, and I have to tell you…I think they’re great. I bought tea tree oil for the first time in April for a skin issue, and it worked WONDERS. I soon after purchased Eucalyptus and Peppermint. I use them for a variety of things, such as wiping down corners in the apartment to keep insects from coming in (as far as I can tell, it works great). AND I had a terrible headache recently and was feeling a head cold coming on with difficulty breathing. I rubbed a bit of coconut oil and peppermint on my forehead and I woke up feeling awesome. No joke. 

I am officially a fan. And as much as I’d love to get a wholesale account from a reputable company and buy all the essential oils ever, girl don’t got the funds for that. So I’ve purchased two DoTerra products on amazon for a bit cheaper than their retail price.

ClaryCalm

ClaryCalm for PMS, menstrual cramps, general hormonal balance. Boy do I need this.

PastTense

PastTense for headache relief. Staring at a computer all day (plus my iphone probably) has given me a perpetual headache right up front. So I’m working on easing that.

If they work well, I may get another. And if that works well, I’ll try some more. And if life seems to improve, maybe…just maybe…I’ll invest in a wholesale account. I shall let you know how it goes!
