Or­ganic beauty picks for a re­lax­ing sum­mer.

Brad Black and Su­san GriffinBlack co­founded EO Prod­ucts 22 years ago with health in mind. “We wanted to make beau­ti­ful prod­ucts that we could use on our kids,” says Grif­fin-black. They be­gan with or­ganic es­sen­tial oils and built a brand around self-care and a sus­tain­able man­u­fac­tur­ing ethos. “Es­sen­tial oils can en­hance our well-be­ing in an ac­ces­si­ble way,” she ex­plains. Here, the duo shares their fa­vorite sum­mer prod­ucts.

START WITH THE BA­SICS

Grif­fin-black de­scribes al­co­hol-based, nat­u­ral de­odor­ant as a gate­way prod­uct. “It’s one of the first things peo­ple turn to when they have a health­ier life­style,” she says. In­stead of stop­ping sweat with an­tiper­spi­rant, she rec­om­mends a de­odor­ant, like EO Cer­ti­fied Or­ganic De­odor­ant Spray Cit­rus ($7), that in­stead kills odor-caus­ing bac­te­ria with or­ganic ethanol and cit­rus oils.

A SCENTED BATH

Grif­fin-black sug­gests adding a few drops of rose es­sen­tial oil to the bath. “Tak­ing a bath is one of the sim­plest ways to ex­pe­ri­ence self-care. I learned how to med­i­tate in the bath when my son, who is now in his 30s, was 2. It’s a quiet space.”

CALM AF­TER THE SUN

Keep your lo­tion on ice for a re­fresh­ing treat af­ter a long day in the sun, says Grif­fin-black. “Laven­der has heal­ing prop­er­ties that help re­pair and hy­drate sun-parched skin,” she says.
