What does "Natural
Living" mean? How does Natural Family Boutique support
Natural Living? What makes something "natural?"
means many things to many people. In fact, if you were to
ask each one of our sales consultants what "natural living"
means, you would probably receive a slightly different answer from
For the purpose of choosing
products for the Natural Family Boutique product line, we define
natural living as:
"A lifestyle choice
that includes using products that are in as close to their natural
state as possible; reducing or eliminating chemicals used in personal
care and cleaning products; supporting healthful living through
minimal chemical and medical intervention; reducing consumption
of non-renewable resources; and raising children in a way that
is biologically logical for humans as a species."
How do we do this?
First, and foremost, we
provide products that help families get off to the best possible
start. All of our products support natural choices like drug
and intervention free childbirth, breastfeeding,
and attachment parenting.
Choices like those often lead to other natural choices like cloth
diapering, organic cotton
clothing, natural personal
care products, and natural
care products are not tested on animals, and are all made with
the purest, most natural ingredients possible. We choose natural
preservatives like grapefruit seed extract, vitamin E, or rosemary
oil. Our fragrances come from pure essential oils and pure
food extracts. For example, if something smells like chocolate,
it is because it has cocoa butter in it - not because it has chocolate
fragrance oil. This requires more creativity, patience, and
attention to detail to provide our customers with the highest quality
natural personal care products available. Chemical preservatives
and artificial fragrances are not a part of our product line.
care products actually CLEAN your home, rather than just depositing
chemicals on your clothes or home. You may need to shake the
bottle of All Purpose Cleaner to mix the essential oils before you
use it, because we don't use a chemical to keep the essential oils
suspended in the cleaner. But, you'll find your home will
smell better than if you used artificial fragrances. People
who are sensitive to fragrance oils will find that they won't get
nearly as many headaches when they choose naturally-scented products.
candles will actually clean the air in your house! No
petrochemical-laden parrafin here! Plus, they burn longer
and cleaner than any other candle making material (soy, veggie,
We also support mothers
who choose to work from home while caring for their children.
Many of our products are made by Work-At-Home-Moms (WAHMs), and
each of our sales consultants is a WAHM or WAHD (dad) with their
Natural Family Boutique business. We feel that it is important
that children be near their parents whenever possible, so our career
opportunity supports that choice. Also, we support many
of charitable organizations whose philosophies are in alignment
with our own (La Leche League, Attachment Parenting International,
Families for Natural Living, MOMs Club, and many more). Each
year, Natural Family Boutique and NFB Sales Consultants donate thousands
of dollars to these organizations because we believe so strongly
in their importance.
So, when you choose to
do business with Natural Family Boutique, you're doing much more
than making a natural choice for your own family. You're supporting
an entire community of people making the same natural choices for
their own families as well. Thank you for your support!
