The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Essential Oils

The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Essential Oils
Many Logical Harmony readers ask for help finding cruelty-free essential oils. For many people who transition to a cruelty-free beauty routine, switching to cruelty-free essential oils is often something that is far from peoples minds. People are most often focused on ensuring they are finding cruelty-free swaps for their foundations, mascaras, makeup brushes, and other beauty products before looking at products they may also use around the home. A lot of people do use essential oils as a part of their cruelty-free beauty routine too.

That’s why I decided to create this guide to cruelty-free essential oils. By nature, essential oils are usually not only cruelty-free but also vegan-friendly as they are a highly concentrated version of the oils found in plants. However, not all brands who make essential oils are cruelty-free. This guide makes it easy to ensure you are shopping for essential oils from cruelty-free brands!

Some popular cruelty-free essential oils & essential oil accessories are:

Miakoda Ethical Fashion Try-On & Haul

Miakoda Ethical Fashion Try-On & Haul

Fashion isn’t something you’ve seen much of here on Logical Harmony, but I want to start expanding the content here and working it in where possible. I get a lot of requests for showing vegan fashion and I’ve been posting more outfits on Instagram lately. It’s been fun to try a new kind of content out. Recently I worked with Miakoda on a sponsored try-on video and wanted to share it here as well.

I’ve been wearing Miakoda for a while and love their pieces. They are a small brand run in New York City where everything is eco-friendly, sustainably and ethically made. What I love about them is that their entire brand is built around being comfortable. I feel like this means not just in their clothing, but also in your skin.

The Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Lip Balm

The Best Cruelty-Free Lip Balm

Many Logical Harmony readers ask for help finding a good cruelty-free lip balm. It seems like such a simple thing, but many people are surprised to find out that most of the well-loved lip balm brands test on animals. When it comes to a cruelty-free lip balm everyone wants something different too. Some people want an easy option that they can pick up for under $5, others want an overnight lip mask, and others just want something that’s a bit of a splurge.

I am a huge lip balm fan and have tried so many cruelty-free lip balms over the years. I wanted to share my favorite cruelty-free lip balm options with you. You can get these at your local natural food stores, local grocery stores, Beauty Bay, Cult Beauty, Sephora, Ulta, Free People, Nordstrom and more.

beautyblender Vegan Products List

beautyblender Vegan Products List

Looking for a list of beautyblender vegan products? Logical Harmony has you covered!

beautyblender has a cult following for their original beautyblender makeup sponge for good reason. When it launched in 2007, it changed the landscape of the beauty community and changed how so many people apply their makeup. While beauty sponges were not a new concept, the quality of the beautyblender was. Beauty sponges were previously seen as a disposable product you only get a few uses out of. The beautyblender was created and made so many realize that this specific beauty sponge was unlike any other, and could be used so many more times than the beauty sponges they were used to. Not only that, but it applied makeup differently.

It’s always great when cruelty-free brands make picking up vegan products easy. Especially when it’s brands like beautyblender that are sold in so many retailers. Currently, you can find beautyblender at Beauty Bay, BeautylishCult Beauty, Dermstore, Macy’s, Net-a-Porter, Space NKSephora, Ulta, and Nordstrom.

In an effort to make things easier for everyone I wanted to create this list of all of the beautyblender vegan products.

Some of the best-selling beautyblender vegan products are:
