Before I get into this post, I’m going to tell you a little story. A few months ago, I got back into my yoga practice. I had been receiving Yogi Surprise for a while and I actually started to find use for some of the yoga accessories that I knew I probably wouldn’t have otherwise used. One of those items I received happened to be an orange mandala headband from Soul Flower. I initially had no idea what was so special about it or why I found so much use in it, but I started wearing it to EVERY single yoga practice and even started wearing it around the house just to keep my hair out of my eyes. I didn’t even know how beneficial this headband was or what the company behind it was all about. Without further ado, let me introduce Soul Flower:
Soul Flower is an organic clothing brand for kind souls and free spirits. Mindfully made with eco-friendly materials and heartfelt art, we design our threads with kind vibes from start to finish. We seek inspiration in the simplicity of everyday life – in nature and in music, in free-spirited adventures and in like-minded souls. We create clothing in a way that supports our planet, spreads a positive message, and most importantly — helps you express yourself. You can make a difference with what you wear, so share the vibe and let your Soul Flower.
So, the really cool thing that we know right off the bat is that Soul Flower provides organic clothing. They are: Green America Certified, Green Office Certified, Carbon Free and UPS Carbon Neutral. There are no chemicals or pesticides in the clothing and the cotton is environmentally friendly, as well as much healthier for the consumer to wear and for the farmer to work with.
I had the pleasure of trying out and reviewing 2 headbands as well as an organic chap stick from Soul Flower.
The headbands are 100% made in the USA. They are 50% organic cotton and 50% recycled polyester (made from Recycled Plastic Beverage Bottles). The fabric is extremely soft and the headbands are hand printed with unique, fun art. They are great for any physical/heated activity!
Regrow, renew, rejoice. Feel the connection between your breath, the ground below you, and the environment around you in this calming circular hand-drawn tree design. This eco-friendly headband is great for yoga, gardening, festivals, or any activity where you want your hair out of the way! Made in USA. 50% organic cotton, 50% recycled plastic (from recycled beverage bottles). Eco Olive. 8 inches wide.
I really love the pattern of the headband, and I LOVE the material more than anything. The headband adjusts to my head perfectly and the cool thing is, you can wear this however you want to, in so many different ways. The material is SOFT, it isn’t itchy to wear during physical activity and it allows you to focus more on your practice or workout so you’re not worrying about whether your hair will fall into your face.
Illuminate your path and boldly pursue it. This recycled headband features a hand-drawn indigo flower on a soft white background. Mix up your look by wearing it a variety of different ways! Pair our hippie bandanas with flowy tops and skirts for a bohemian look. Made in USA. 50% organic cotton, 50% recycled plastic. Eco Natural.
I LOVE the bright colours and bold patterns of this lovely indigo flower. I have already worn this to a yoga practice and wore it long on my head so the entire pattern showed. It kept all of the sweat out of my eyes and face so that I could really focus on my practice! It can also be worn more scrunched up if you prefer it that way.
Protect your lips with a blend of organic hemp seed oil, olive oil, beeswax, comfrey, calendula, and vitamin e. This spearmint lip balm is the perfect natural, cooling solution for dry or chapped lips. Our body products are made using gentle ingredients and ethical practices. All our products are animal friendly and cruelty free. This product is not tested on animals. Made in USA.
Organic Lip Balm is amazzzinngg and such a staple in my everyday life. Think of all the times your lips are dry/chapped and you smear a toxic, chemical substance all over your lips in hopes they will be kept moisturized. Instead of applying a product with ingredients you can’t pronounce, opt for the organic option that is good for your lips! This lip balm has a peppermint taste (which I LOVE) and glides very smooth on the lips.
Trying to convert to an everything-organic lifestyle can be really difficult at times, and it can be really easy to overlook changing items that you are used to utilizing every single day. I never thought clothing would be something that I should consider changing to organic, until I was exposed to Soul Flower. Seeing the amount of dye, chemicals and toxins that exist in the materials we wear on a daily basis, it almost scares me to continue wearing ‘normal’ clothing.
Soul Flower has an amazing mission and drive to bring eco-friendly materials and art together. With clothing that can be used for working out, meditating, hanging out around the house or for everyday use, you can proudly display your unique, environmentally friendly clothing!
I’m so impressed with the fact that this clothing is made from organic cotton, recycled fibers, etc. but still doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. The prices are standard, if not cheaper than many stores you pass in the mall that definitely aren’t made out of organic materials!
I love my Soul Flower headbands and intend on continuing to wear them to each and every yoga practice I attend, and especially in the summer with the hot weather approaching! You absolutely cannot go wrong with opting for the organic option!
