My Grove Collaborative Summer Favorites (for the Home)
I can’t speak for everyone, but these are things I personally use (most of which I have in my home right now) and love! We’ll start with my home-related favorites.
Mrs. Meyer’s Lavender Laundry Detergent
Let’s be real–I just love Mrs. Meyers. Period. I haven’t bought anything from this company that doesn’t smell great. And the laundry detergent is no exception.
We have to be careful in this house about scented laundry detergent (my husband and one of our kiddos get rashes from most scented detergents) but Mrs. Meyer’s gets the green light.
And we’re all mildly obsessed with lavender, so that’s what we get!
Honeysuckle Room Refresher Spray
This scent is AH.MAY.ZING! Seriously.
We also love the dish soap and hand wash in this scent. But the room refresher spray made the list because I love to make our living room and bedrooms smell like honeysuckle.
Plus with it being summer, the kids play outside A LOT. And let’s face it, when we all file back inside, the smell we bring with us isn’t always so great. A little spritz of honeysuckle freshens the house back up.
Aunt Fannie’s All-Purpose Pest Remedy
Because spiders and centipedes. Nuff said.
Seventh Generation Dish Soap – Lavender & Mint
Even though I love me some Mrs. Meyer’s, Seventh Generation also smells so darn good! So I alternate between brands and keep my senses happy.
But what I also love is that it isn’t just one of those plant-based products that smells good but doesn’t get the job done. It actually cuts through grease and gets our dishes nice and sparkly without crazy scrubbing.
Grove Soy Candle – Grapefruit & Lemon Peel
Soy candles for the win! Health wise, we know they’re better. But they don’t always smell as strong as traditional wax candles. Honestly, even the ones from Grove are more lightly scented than regular candles BUT I’ve gotten used to it. And now other candles kind of give me a headache.
And the citrus scent is uplifting for the mood and makes my brain think “clean and fresh.”
Counter Culture – Geranium
This stuff is just super cool.
I used to be an ambassador for a health and wellness company that really emphasized gut health. While I’m no longer doing the network marketing thing, I still am all about the microbiome. So when I saw this, I couldn’t NOT try it.
Most of the products we use focus on killing everything, but this product is a good way to replenish and promote beneficial microbes.
The geranium scent is super light, so I don’t necessarily use it for the way it makes our kitchen smell. But more for the added benefit of having those helpful little microorganisms hanging out on the counter.
Personal Care Summer Favorites from Grove
So in addition to home-related goods, Grove also has a ton of awesome personal care products. These are my favorites for the summer time.
Aunt Fannie’s Kids Mosquito Repellent Spray
Oh the bugs. Especially mosquitoes.
I don’t know what it is about us, but mosquitoes love to take as many nibbles of our little family as they possibly can while we’re outdoors. And all of us welt up pretty badly. Back in the day, I toughed it out. Put some clear nail polish on it to keep from digging at it, and I was good.
But I hate seeing those angry red bumps all over my babes’ legs. So when I saw that Grove had Aunt Fannie’s, I was all over it.
It smells really nice! I will say that it’s a little oily, so after we spray it on the kids, we rub it in a tad to disperse it evenly. But most importantly, it works.
Smarty Pits Sensitive Aluminum-Free Deodorant
Obviously during summer, we need a good, reliable deodorant.
I’ve been using this one for almost a year now while also trying a couple other brands, and this one is my favorite by far. It ticks all the boxes:
- smells good
- makes sure I smell good
- doesn’t irritate my sensitive pits
So it’s a keeper.
Rooted Beauty Facial Towlettes
These were originally a free gift in one of my orders, but I fell in love with them, so I’ve ordered them twice now. Granted, I’m not one to usually use facial wipes at night, so I don’t have much to compare them to.
But the smell awesome, make my face nice and smooth, and hydrate it too. Plus they take my makeup off super easily. I don’t wear a ton anyway (just concealer under my eyes, powder, eyeliner, mascara and the very occasional eye shadow), but it’s nice to be able to just wipe gently to get it off instead of scrubbing with soap and water.
And during summer, they com in handy to freshen up my face after coming inside on a hot day.
Grove Mint & Argan Oil Lip Balm
This was my very first free gift included in an order, and I still love it. And my kids must love it too because they steal it all the time.
It smells good (kind of a big deal for me since I’ve mentioned the scent on pretty much everything so far) and makes my lips silky smooth and protected from dry air in the winter too.
Until next time,
