    Eco Nuts Natural Laundry Soap

    Eco Nuts are completely sustainable dried fruit shells that come from the Sapindus mukorossi tree (also called the Soap Berry or Soap Nut Tree) in Nepal, India and Indonesia. The ones we harvest come from high up in the Himalayas and are the highest quality "soap nut" on the market. These fruit shells have been used in India and China for centuries, and are now gaining popularity in America and Europe as a renewable, biodegradable and organic alternative to chemical detergents and expensive Green laundry soaps.

    Eco Nuts contain Saponin, a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibers of your clothing, lifting stains from the fabric and leaving dirt suspended in the water that is rinsed away.

    Eco Nuts are gentle on both clothes and skin, making them ideal for those with sensitive skin, eczema, allergies and psoriasis. Because they are so mild, they are perfect for baby clothes and cloth diapers. All-Natural Eco Nuts are also great for septic and grey water systems. But dont expect these shells to foam up like commercial soaps, which have artificial foaming agents. Foam simply does not represent cleaning power.

    Eco Nuts are wild-harvested, meaning they are gathered from wild trees grown without any kind of chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. The Saponin actually tastes bad to insects so no pesticides are needed, and the trees naturally love poor uncultivated soil. They are organically grown by mother earth and certified USDA Organic by EcoCert at the source.

    Eco Nuts are Nut Allergy Safe!  Eco Nuts are actually a berry fruit related to the lychee and are not nuts at all. They are completely nut allergy safe and have been used successfully with no reactions by people with nut allergies. They earned the name "nuts" because they dry into hard shells like nuts instead of squishy fruit.

    While Eco Nuts has been a terrific solution for many customers with skin allergies and other conditions, people who have many allergies or compromised immune systems should always take proper precautions and first wash one small item in a small container or sink OR do a patch test before washing an entire load in the washing machine.

    Our proprietary sorting process also ensures a consistency in shape and texture that makes Eco Nuts pleasant and easy to use. Because we lovingly and carefully hand package in the USA, we can also eliminate individualized plastic wrapping otherwise required by customs.

    In addition, many regular soap nuts are harvested, sorted and prepared in the outdoors, and dried on a rooftoop. This exposes them to the elements and birds or other animals! We take great care to ensure our soap nuts are carefully prepared and stored indoors in a clean facility. Our soap nuts are carefully sorted using our proprietary process to ensure they are free from contaminants before they are packaged! After all this sorting and care, those soap nuts become Eco Nuts! We are currently the only soap nut company that we know of to be utilizing these methods and technology both in the US and overseas to make these soap nuts safer.  They are safe to use in both standard & high-efficiency (HE) machines on any water temperature.

    Natural Baltic Amber Teething Necklace & Bracelets

    Baltic amber is fossil resin produced by pine trees, which grew in Northern Europe - from southern regions of the present day Scandinavia and nearby regions of the bed of the Baltic Sea. The climate became warmer and conifer trees started to exude big amounts of resin. Scientists say that amber is a fossil pine resin from this region that has achieved a stable state through oxidation. The word amber meant only one thing the Baltic Amber. However, the process of how amber is formed traced more amber varieties in different parts of the world. Although more than 125 types of fossil resins are known in the world, these resins are not amber but its relatives. They are mostly found in Europe and America and each of them has its own name. But the Baltic amber is uniquely known for its quality and is most sought after.

  • Designed for wearing by either boys or girls
  • A completely natural, drug-free way to relieve the symptoms of teething in babies and toddlers
  • Amber is a fossilized resin, not a stone. It is therefore warm to the touch, and light to wear.
  • When amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases miniscule amounts of healing oils from the amber which are then absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream.
  • Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties have long been appreciated by parents in Europe. 
  • All of our Baltic Amber teething necklaces feature rounded beads for your babies maximum comfort.   

    Baltic Amber baby teething natural pain relief necklaces are suitable for babies, toddlers, and children. They are not designed for chewing with teeth, parent supervision is recommended at all times when baby is wearing necklace. Amber is associated with sunlight and warmth and reputed to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation and accelerate the healing of wounds and is thus the perfect help for babies and toddlers who wear it when they are teething.

    Only natural 100% authentic Baltic amber is used to make our teething necklaces.  Beads will vary in color, shape, and size since they are natural resins.

    Beads are small enough to not pose a choking hazard and each one is knotted individually for safety. 

    Necklaces are approximately 13" long and the Bracelets are approximately 5" long.
    Made in Lithuania where the Baltic Amber is collected.
