I’ve been meaning to put together a list of my favorite resources on natural health, beauty, and simple living for a while now and I’ve finally gotten around to doing it. I’m posting all my favorite blogs, sites, books, and other resources below with short descriptions of why I like them.  I’ll also keep an updated list in the left sidebar for you to check out any time. I’ve found that sometimes the greatest help a person can give you is a referral to someone else who has helped them–so here we go!

Natural Eating, Diet, and Health

  • westonaprice.org:  Weston A. Price was a dentist in the early 1900’s who studied the effect of diet on overall health and dental health.  He most notably studied some of the last remaining primitive cultures before and after their diets become industrialized. Today, the Weston A. Price Foundation carries on his research and spreads his message about the importance of a whole foods diet. Great general dietary information and lots of articles on dietary ways to address particular health concerns.
  • marksdailyapple.com:  Mark Sisson, writer of the Primal Blueprint, advocates for a primal diet and lifestyle that mimics that of our primal ancestors. Lots of great information about diet, curing all kinds of systemic disease through diet, and more. Very motivating if you’re trying to clean up your diet!

Natural Beauty, Skincare and Acne Treatment

  • thelovevitamin.com:  Tracey Mccolough writes this friendly, informative blog about natural ways to treat acne. She does a lot of exploratory articles to look into possible causes of your acne and suggests a wide variety of natural ways to treat it. She also uses the no shampoo method and has several nice articles about it as well. Her articles are all very well researched and she’s great about responding to comments on her blog. One of my FAVORITE acne blogs!
  • highonhealth.org:  A woman named Fran writes this blog. It used to be primarily an acne blog and can be a great resource if you’re trying to heal your acne. Once she cured her acne, she started writing more about natural health and healing, generally. Definitely worth reading!

Natural Parenting

  • mamanatural.com:  Genevieve, a woman from Chicago, writes this blog with occasional input from her husband, Mike.  She blogs about natural childbirth, natural parenting, and even natural beauty, to a degree. She films lots of videos as well. I really like the way she presents even the crunchiest info in a straightforward, un-preachy manner.
  • diaperswappers.com:  My favorite source on cloth diapering. Diaperswappers.com hosts the very best cloth diaper forum online. The cloth diaperers there can answer any question you have. A good place for general information about cloth diapering, but a GREAT place when you start to have specific questions.  They also have a marketplace for used cloth diapers and baby gear, but it’s pretty competitive to actually snag any of the items, so I tend to prefer Craigslist.
  • youtube.com/obbsandlala:  The best place for cloth diapering information when you’re just starting to get into it. She has a lot of general overview videos about all aspects of cloth diapering. That said, she does tend toward some of the more costly cloth diapering methods, so if you’re very budget conscious, you might want to look elsewhere for information on prefolds and flats.
  • youtube.com/user/ClothDiaperChannel:  This is a cooperative youtube channel hosting lots of videos by cloth diapering veterans.  You can find videos on just about every cloth diapering topic here.

Simple Living and Minimalism

  • apartmenttherapy.com:  Plenty of great content about apartment living, small space living, simple living, budget living, and more. This blog has gotten some negative feedback for featuring more and more luxury homes as it’s gotten more popular, but there’s still plenty of great content for the green, budget-conscious minimalist.
  • zenhabits.net:  A great minimalism blog by Leo Babauta. Lots of feel-good articles. A great blog to read if you ever start to feel “stuck” or in need of a reminder of what matters.
  • getrichslowly.org:  I think this is just about the best personal finance blog online. If you’re trying to get out of debt, save money, or just improve your financial situation in general, I’d suggest reading as much of the content on this blog as you can.

So that’s just the start! Hopefully I’ll add others as time goes on. And if you have any suggestions of blogs or websites I might like feel free to post them in the comments!! I’m always looking for new content to geek out over. :-)
