Zen in Zum

I love my city. I have no resistance to becoming a nomad, or even just moving away, but I will always defend my beloved Kansas City.

The size of the city is small, relative to other states’ large cities, but it’s a perfect place to grow up and become emmersed into a diverse culture at a young age. We have skyscrapers and farmland, art districts and ghettos. We have some mildly successful sports teams and the best American-brewed beer I have ever had– maybe my opinion is biased, but you should try it for yourself. Boulevard Brewing Co is gaining popularity around the United States and is one of the KC-made companies that I am most excited about.

Whether beer is or is not your drink of choice, Indigo Wild products are products for everyone. A company based in Kansas City, Missouri, Indigo Wild merchandises natural, clean products called Zum. Made by a health-conscious staff who believes in the importance of holistic living, the products are made for every day use such as soaps, other bath and body products, household & cleaning products, lip balm, baby products, soy candles, etc.

1982347_10201955839039925_1699864740_nThese are some of my favorite Zums. The chap-stick is great, I think I have all the flavors! I like to use the Zum Rub for muscles after a tough soccer game- it works sort of like Icy-Hot but its all natural ingredients make it a softer alternative for your skin. The Zum Face is nice because it’s a scrub that really makes your skin feel fresh and clean after you use it. Also, it isn’t made with hundreds of tiny, plastic microbeads that don’t break down and get stuck in your pores and in the plumbing.

Did you know in Albany, New York, legislators are trying to ban microbeads? The tiny plastic beads that are supposed to help exfoliate skin don’t actually dissolve once they make their long, swirly journey through the pipes. The beads actually end up polluting water, feeding the fish, and eventually feeding us fish-eating humans.

Do away with using plastic and chemicals on your skin and start using Mother Nature!! I knew using these Zum products would be better for my body, but I was extra convinced when my boyfriend read the ingredients labels on everything I had and was surprisingly impressed with how honestly good the products are for your bodies (he is a science guy so he knows the difference).

All Zum products are vegetarian.
All Zum products are vegan except: Zum Bars (goat’s milk), Zum Kisses (honey) and Zum Rub (goat’s milk).
All Zum products are gluten free except: Zum Body lotions (oat bran extract) and Oatmeal-Lavender Zum Bar (oatmeal).
Rosemary extract is gluten free and contains soy

Why Goat’s Milk? It’s great for your skin and for nature

A cloud of dirty words Zum products don’t use. Check the ingredients list on the products you use every day and STOP using them if they contain all this bad stuff
