Eco Fab Mama- Review and Giveaway!!

About Veronica- The Mommy behind Eco Fab Mama:
Veronica is the very busy WAHM behind Eco Fab Mommy and Moms Crafts 4 U. She has been married to her husband for almost 12 years and has two kiddos, (11 year old girl and 7 year old boy), 1 golden retriever, 1 cat, and one budgie (Bird). She has been crafting and sewing since she was little, but began selling her creations back in 2002 locally. She started selling fleece hats and mittens, and has grown into what she is today. She loves crafting reusable items like Mama Cloth, unpaper towels, not only because she enjoys making them, but because she knows she is helping save the environment one stitch at a time. (Watch out Captain Planet!!)

Veronica works outside the home for a few hours a week while her littles are in school, but loves being home with them and watching them grow up. Her littles love to help her out with her business ventrures too doing things like taking pictures, and snipping threads. She is able to teach them so much through her business's.

Veronica's family is working every day at living a greener more Eco-conscious life. They use cloth everything, eco friendly detergents (handmade or soapnuts), SLS free handmade soaps, and they have also cut out a lot of unneeded items.

Her goals for her business's are to be able to support her family while helping to support other families become more Eco-conscious, and she would love to see her business grow into something for her children. Her daughter is very crafty and loves helping her Mommy out.

What I thought:
I reviewed several Eco Fab Mama goodies including a Scar Stick, Delish Yum Bum Butter,  Pipestone Goats Milk Soap, Greener Living Soap Nuts,  Benjamin Bean Swiss Mocha Coffee, and three double sided flannel cloth wipes. 

 I have used the scar stick on healing bug bites, and a paper cut I got recently and liked the way it left my skin feeling.  It seemed to advance the healing process, and none of the spots I have used it on left any kind of a mark.   

We have also been using the Delish Yum Bum butter this week and love it.  It works wonderfully, and smells awesome (like apple pie!!)  I love the consistency!  It is easy to get out of the container, and glides on Zoey's skin.

We have been using the Pipestone soap and it has been great on Zoey's sensitive skin.  It smells lovely, but is still really mild so it has not been breaking Zoey out.  It also lathers up really well.  If you have a little one (or yourself) with sensitive skin or exzema I would recomend this as a soap to use!

We loved the Greener Living Soap Nuts, and used them on our cloth diapers.  I did a review a while back on their soap nuts and really love them.  You can find that review here.

My hubby reviewed the Swiss Mocha Benjamin Bean coffee since I am pregnant and avoiding the caffeine.  He made his with milk for a creamier coffee and said it was delish.  It was just enough coffee flavor mixed with the perfect amount of chocolate flavor. 

Lastly we love our cloth wipes.  The edges are super clean and serged, and have held up to some pretty ferocious diapers and washes so far.  I also loved that these are 8x8 so I never had to worry about my hands getting ick on them!
