Happiness in a Box #2: April Mom & Baby Box (and a sweet discount, too!)
Flashback to October 2014: I was pregnant with my second son, caring for my 4-year-old son and 36 year-old husband, working full-time as a teacher, and as a part-time blogger…I guess you could say my plate was overflowing just a little.
However, when I was asked to review the treat boxes from a new company called Ecocentric Mom, I jumped at the offer. I had already perused their website and LOVED what they were doing. Pampering women with eco-focused treats at a great price.
Not only does this company provide a really great service for YOU, it also makes a wonderful and unique gift for your loved ones.

Let’s take a closer look at the items in the March/April Mom & Baby Box
The Nourish Pouch is reusable and features a resealable bottom closure, making refilling and cleaning easy! It’s designed for babies & toddlers but my 5-year-old has taken it for himself. It’s actually be a GREAT way to get him to drink water (even if I had intended it for kefir smoothies). Bottom line? He LOVES it!
Regular package of 5 pouches retails for $9.95
Camilia is a natural solution for painful gums and irritability caused by teething. The single-use liquid doses do not contain benzocaine, preservatives or flavors, and are free of dyes, sugar and artificial sweeteners. Woo hoo!
My little one is only 4-months-old, but since teething can begin as early as 3 months, I was SO pleased to get these in this month’s box. It’s comforting to have a “clean” item ready for the first onset of teething fussiness.
Average Retail Price: $8.99-12.99
Proudly creating products free of chemicals and toxins is our Passion! Our ingredients are 100% Natural & Organic. The company is cruelty free, earth friendly, and socially responsible.
I received “Baby Wash & Shampoo (Sweet Orange)”, made with 100% natural & organic ingredients. It is designed for safe use on hair, face and body. Again, a great product for your baby AND older children. My 5-year-old loves all things citrus and felt very lucky to have this “good smell” in his bath and proclaimed it “ahh, so nice.”
A 2 oz Bottle is $3, an 8 oz Bottle is $11.95
Both my sons loved this book! The pages featured bright pictures with different touch-and-feel textures. My infant son’s little fingers loved exploring the pages and my older son enjoyed identifying words he knew as he listened to the story.
$4.95 Board Book
**Personal favorite this month!!**
There are MANY all-natural, toxin free deodorants on the market…in fact, I’ve probably tried them all (well, a MANY of them, anyway!). So I do not say this lightly: This is the BEST deodorant I’ve ever used!
It’s soothing on the skin and effective as an antiperspirant and deodorant. The company prides itself on 100% hand-made products made in small batches, with products for the whole family! The essential oils & clays are suspended in a base of shea butter and coconut oil and they work beautifully!
Product Pricing: $6 for 0.75 oz tube (included)

Goddess Garden began out of a love of the great outdoors and a desire to provide high quality products for family members. Unlike traditional chemical sunscreens, Goddess Garden is safe, effective, and biodegradable. Their products meet my requirements for thetoxin-free items I’ll allow on my little ones’ skin. Also a great item for breastfeeding mommies, since they need to be just as wary of what goes on their skin. Thanks, Goddess Garden!
14.99-$17.99 for 3.4 oz bottle
Brigit True Organics is a woman-owned, organic skin care company that offers hypoallergenic body care for super-sensitive skin. Their whole line is gluten-free, soy-free and doesn’t contain any nut oils. Their Peppermint Lip Balm is crafted with soothing healing herbs to bring immediate comfort and long-lasting protection for sensitive, dry, or chapped lips.
The peppermint was mildly tingling and has become a pleasing addition to my morning routine.
Each balm has a retail value of $5
All plastics should adopt this ecologically responsible method of manufacturing!! Eco eggs are made in the USA from plants, 100% renewable content, and are fully compostable after use! They are made from non-toxic, durable, plant-based plastic and have a secure closure. We definitely plan on reusing the eggs for many Easters to come.
Product Pricing: $5 per 12ct box
Country Choice Organic’s single serve oatmeal packets include a multigrain blend of oats, rye, barley and wheat. I received the Maple Spice with Raisin and Cranberry Apple and my mother-in-law raved about the perfectly sweetened flavor—she’s a stickler when it comes to balanced flavors and she really enjoyed the maple sweetness. If you are gluten-free, as my family is, a quick email to the company ensures appropriate items for your subscription.
$4.29 for 8 ct box
These whole food bars are created from nutrient-dense ingredients, without refined sugars and artificial sweeteners. They contain a wide variety of green foods and are vegan & dairy-free, too! Perfect for hikes, visits to the park, or a mommy breakfast on the run!
$14 for box of 6 bars
Equal Exchange minis are made with cacao (cocoa beans) from farmer co-operatives in the Dominican Republic and Peru. The sugar and vanilla are also fairly traded and organic. The sugar comes from co-operatives in Paraguay and the vanilla from a co-operative in Madagascar. There are very few chocolate items I allow my son, but this organic, fair trade, low sugar treat made his Easter extra special.
$6.99 for 4.5-g minis per 3.2oz box (20 ct.)
