I often get asked what products or techniques I use to go green and to be the eco friendly, sustainable shopper fairy that I am. Reducing plastic use and lowering my carbon footprint is one of my greatest joys, and it will become one of yours too! Also, the more we can support local, small businesses the more we ensure creatives and change makers in the world get honored!
ALL of this helps to stay high vibe, help the planet, and help others. Please check out my list below with all manner of ways to eco support others by supporting sellers of eco products, reducing plastic, buying fair trade and more. I will do my best to update this list, so check back often!
P.S. For Amazon items, you can also use this handy dandy list I put together 🙃
🕯️Candles & Essential Oils
Aloha Bay Candles
I've started featuring month ahead guidance in the Aloha Bay monthly email newsletters! They are a GREAT candle company that is all about good vibes, sustainably made products, and non-toxic, essential oil infused quality candles. You can sign up for their email newsletter here, and check out my monthly candle recommendations for them on my social channels!
Tiff's Wicks Candles
I adore this fellow woman owned small business and Etsy seller. I have bought her hand poured and magical candles numerous times! She has zodiac themed candles, fantasty themed ones like LOTR and Harry Potter and of course some fierce, feminine, and sassy ones too! You get to pick the scent you want and each one is lovingly hand poured in Pennsylvania. I have also learned some great candle care tips from Tiffany as well!

Another non-toxic candle company I like for tealights is GoodLight tealights. Did you know is that there is ALL kinds of junk inside your mass produced tealights you get for super cheap? They are super cheap for a reason...they are made with some of the worst things around. Burning non toxic candles helps not only our health, but also the planet. This company was actually started out by restauranteurs who wanted something more eco-friendly to burn on their dining room tables. So, they started producing their own candles. Pretty cool, right? As an added bonus, this company contributes a percentage of their profits to the Orangutan Land Trust, which is all about protecting orangutan habitat in the wild and helping ensure their rehabilitation. Check out their initiatives here and shop their tealights here.
Jade Bloom Essential Oils
Jade Bloom is a no fuss Colorado based essential oil company. They are not a huge corporation, and are truly humble, affordable, and always giving freebies or discount codes away. I started my collection with them an alternate my essential oil collection between them and a Whole Foods stash. Sometimes its best to just keep it simple, you know?

I absolutely adore, adore, adore my crystal infused nail polish collection. I save so much money on getting mani-pedis by doing them my own way with non-toxic mail polish...and its infused with crushed crystals...you literally CANNOT beat that! I've even done some fun crafting with my crystal nail polish!

Pact clothing makes fair trade made undies, bras, leggings and more. This means workers are actually paid a living wage and have a say in how they can work and grow within the business they serve. I especially love their sports bras, stretch tanks, and leggings. You can find some of their pieces in Whole Foods stores as well as on Amazon, but I especially like to shop their website because they have the largest collection there. I literally have tank tops from them I bought yearssssss ago; the quality is quite durable too. You can check out a couple pieces on the "Fairy Fashion" hilight reel on my Insta here.

MeUndies is an LA based underwear, sock, and loungewear company with bamboo/sustainably made undies and a commitment to caring (their support team is called the "CheekSquad" and they are SO nice!) In their email newsletter I have seen the most inspiring quotes from customers and they are all about a commitment to support self expression. They have tons of fun, whimsical, and flirty prints which are sure to support and delight. I was always a VS gal and as I have asked myself how can I upgrade even my bras and undies into being more eco-fairy, I discovered MeUndies and love 'em!

I bought one of these metal, reusable razors for myself and it is literally pure shaving joy! The metal razor is a million times easier to clean, lasts forever, and no more throwing plastic razors into the trash...for reals.
100 Percent Pure
100 percent pure is a San Francisco based makeup company which also sells products for haircare and body care. Everything they make is made with so much love and attention to eco-friendly detail, including a huge commitment to be environmentally sustainable and support cruelty-free and pure products. I love their lip and cheek tint, lip balms, lotions, shampoos (literally cannot live without these), and so much more.

Southern Magnolia Minerals
Another makeup company I love to use is SMM Cosmetics/Southern Magnolia Minerals. This is a woman owned business (woot woot!) where mineral based makeup is on the menu. Barb also features tons of other fun beauty products you can try out including lotions, face washes, and more. I love their eyeshadows and also have a mascara by them as well as some super pretty lipsticks! Mineral based makeup comes in a powder form, so it is super light and portable to work with and you can wet your makeup brush slightly and convert the eyeshadow powders into eyeliners in a pinch! Super fun.

Bonus: Upgrade your makeup brushes too! Sadly, many cheap or mainstream makeup brushes are made with animal hair and are not extracted in the best ways for the animal involved (super NOT fairy approved). I only use Eco-tools makeup brushes and have done so for years. Their brushes are always cruelty free, great to handle, and really pretty. I bought my first eyeshadow brush with them almost a decade ago and have never looked back.
I became tired of throwing plastic toothbrushes into landfills when they were used up, and I had tried the recyclable kind and found they are not always that easy to find recyclable bins for! I decided to look for something even more sustainable. Enter: bamboo toothbrushes. As an added bonus, many come with charcoal bristles which clean and whiten teeth all the more.
Julia Cellini Art
I don't know where I would be in life without my lady love, Julia! She is a Hawaii based artist who paints beautiful and INCREDIBLE depictions of Celtic and Hawaiian goddesses as well as fae, fairy, and all things fantasy. You can check out some of her pieces on my Insta here and here.

🧙Wheel of the Year
Where would a witchy gal be without some Wheel of the Year swag? I know I love following the Wheel of the Year. The pagan holidays in the Celtic tradition predate Christianity and offer celebrations and witnessing in alignment with the seasons of the Earth and times of harvest, renewal, and internal reflection. Working with the Wheel of the Year really helps me connect to my fae roots and also celebrates magic, nature, and the abundance a year can provide.
📆Llewellyn Sabbat Almanac
One tool I have found to be a treasure and a guide is the Llewellyn Sabbat Almanac. These calendars, planners, or books will walk you through different holidays in this tradition with crafts, lore, ritual and more. Join me in the latest version I just bought which you can snag here: Llewellyn's Sabbats Almanac 2020-2021.
🔥Wood burning by Chantal
Also, I love connecting with other small business owners, and my Libra moon has a deep well of love and appreciation for art. I discovered Chantal's work on Instagram and quickly began love hearting almost everything in her Etsy shop. She is an amazing wood burning artist (officially called "pyrography and ink art") and to boot she, too, loves and respects the pagan holidays. She makes the most drool worthy and amazing pieces to add to your altar set. I know I am saving up to buy a whole collection!

Those of you who know me well know that I love plant based nutrition! You can see some of my Fairy Foodie Features here. I am always on the hunt for my best toolkit of supportive powers to live my fairy foodie lifestyle.
🥤Laird Hamilton Supplements
I am a hardcore morning smoothie maker, and one product range I cannot live without is Laird Superfood Powders. These originally started out as coffee creamers designed by the amazing big wave surfer Laird Hamilton, but the brand has evolved to include a whole range of products including superfood powders, instafuel powders in chai, coffee, and matcha, turmeric infused creamers and so much more. The business is also run by Laird's amazing wife Gabby Hamilton, also a famous pro athlete and amazing role model! I am literally obsessed and cannot live without them. I love finding new ones to try and rotate in to my routines. As added bonuses, their support team is absolutely amazeballs and their website has TONS of recipes to inspire your every fancy.

Last, but not least, we gotta get some household stuff on this list!
I became increasingly frustrated with cheap, throwaway plastic lighters and started asking myself what could I do differently to reduce that plastic usage. I experimented with Zippos and buying refillable lighter fluid to light my candles, sage, and incense with but eventually discovered that electric lighter exist! These are the coolest things ever, as they are actually rechargeable and generate an electric spark strong enough that you can then use to light a wick or light an incense stick. As a fun added bonus, I discovered this and was loving it and then saw James Charles feature it in one of his product reco videos! #twinningggg
