I have been receiving boxes each month from Ecocentric Mom and this month was the first time I requested the Pregnancy Box! The February Ecocentric Mom Pregnancy Box contained all sorts of Eco-friendly products to help naturally soothe, heal and comfort the aches and pains of pregnancy. Let's take a look at what all was included in my February Pregnancy Box.
Maty's All Natural Acid Indigestion Relief Syrup
I found this syrup to be a very effective relief for good ol' morning sickness and heart burn that affects most women at some point during pregnancy. It's made from 100% natural whole foods and is safe for anyone over 1 year old to use (including pregnant women). It does have a very strong taste to it, but the sweetness of the honey makes it taste better. Maty's Health Products was started by a mom whose passion for finding natural ways to get healthy was inspired by her daughter who was born with severe health problems.

Grainbow Lavender Aromatherapy Hot Pack
Handmade in Wisconsin, Grainbows hot packs are made with soft cotton material and filled with top quality rice and lavender. These can be heated or chilled for hot or cold use to soothe all the aches and pains of pregnancy. I love using this as a hot pack; the lavender scent is so relaxing and it seems to help my headaches calm down quickly. I appreciate that the heating instructions are sewn right onto the pack so I'll never forget how long to heat it! To order one for yourself visit Grainbow's etsy page: etsy.com/shop/grainbowhotpacks

SkinYoga Post-workout Neem Purifier
Exercise during pregnancy is very beneficial and this post-work out skin purifier is designed to heal skin issues and revive your tired body after those sweaty workouts. SkinYoga is a 100% natural and vegan skincare line from India. They make use of Neem leaves which were used in ancient times to heal skin problems and other natural ingredients to hydrate and soothe all types of skin. You can find their products at Amazon.com.
Red Flower's Rose Collagen Facial Renewal Serum
Made from oils such as rose, raspberry, cloudberry seed and avocado, this facial serum is super hydrating and designed to rejuvenate skin that's been damaged by the environment. It was a little too oily for my already oily skin so I used it as a night cream which worked well for me. I love the lightly sweet rose scent of this serum. Red Flower is a natural line of botanical skincare based in NYC. Learn more Red Flower at redflower.com.
Sant Garcinia Indica Fruit Beverage Infusion
These dried fruits have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to "balance mind and body" and also to relieve morning sickness! The fruit contains loads of antioxidants, vitamins B and C, Magnesium, potassium and it has anti-inflammatory properties, all of which are important to help support a healthy pregnancy. To use, simple drop the dried fruits into a cup of cold or hot water, wait for it to infuse to the desired strength and enjoy! I really liked the tart taste from the fruit but you could add a little sweeter if desired. Sant is a socially conscious company based in India. To learn more visit their website idrinksant.com.
BeanFields Nacho Bean and Rice Chips
These crunchy, cheesy chips are a great healthy substitute for regular potato chips! Being in the morning sickness stage of pregnancy I am constantly craving crunchy, salty foods to help fight nausea and these were perfectly satisfying! They remind me of Doritos but I honestly enjoyed the taste of these BeanField chips way more! One serving of these chips contains 5 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. They have less sugar and fat than other comparable chips and they are made without any of the top 8 food allergen such as corn, gluten, dairy, peanuts or seeds. To find out where to buy these natural BeanField chips which are made in the USA visit beanfieldssnacks.com.
The February Ecocentric Mom Pregnancy Box introduced me to a variety of products to support my pregnancy safely and naturally. One of the primary things I really appreciate about the Ecocentric Mom Box subscription is being able to test a variety of new products and figure out what works best for me before committing to buying a full sized product! My favorite products this month were the Maty's Natural Indigestion Relief Syrup and the Beanfield Nacho Chips! The syrup helped me with some rough morning sickness this week and the Beanfield chips really satisfied my craving for chips in a much healthier way.
