As vacation season nears, I thought it would be fun to do a travel post. Whether you are going on your "babymoon" with your love before your Sweet Pea arrives, or if you are traveling with your Sweet Peas who are earthside, using non-toxic products makes vacation safer and more enjoyable for your body and your Sweet Pea...healthy bodies can take advantage of all the pleasures and indulgences of a vacation.
We travel with a Be Prepared in Sea Amo
We have meandered our way to a more natural lifestyle. We didn't find all of these products all at once - we discovered them as we researched and learned more about natural living over the last seven years.
In order to save you some time and money (trial & error can be an expensive way to learn), here is a visual list of the non-toxic products that we carry when we road trip.
Here is our road trip list:
