The day after my high school graduation, my three best girlfriends and I headed to Fort Lauderdale.  Our version of a great time was henna tattoos, and opting for baby oil instead of sunscreen.  We rubbed ourselves down with that stuff, and wore our sunburn proudly.

Obviously things have changed a lot for me.  While I’d do just about anything for a trip to the beach with girlfriends, I now know that worshipping the sun isn’t necessarily the best thing.

In all my reading and trying to understand natural health, I’ve learned that the sun (in reasonable amounts) is my friend. Most days we don’t use sunscreen, but when we are out for several hours and can’t catch a break or a bit of shade we apply a safe, non-toxic sunscreen.


This time last year we told you about the dangers of most standard sunscreens.  Nothing’s changed, so you can imagine our delight when Garden Goddess approached us to sample their products and give a bundle to you guys.

Garden Goddess was founded by a mom in 2004 for her daughter who was allergic to chemicals in traditional sunscreens and bath products.  They’ve sent over their Kids Continuous Sports Spray, 3.4 oz Sunny Face and 3.4 oz Sunny Body (a $54 value)  for one lucky reader, just in time for warm weather!
