1. Boost Your Skin with Botanicals
Plant Power! Embracing Mother Earth by upgrading your skincare is a great way to show your appreciation for the planet.
Two of our favorite botanical oils for spring: Hemp Seed Oil (perfect for nourishing maskne-prone skin and Prickly Pear Oil (For improving the appearance of dark spots.)
The Botanical Collection is simple skin care at its best. One hundred percent natural and packed with nourishing vitamins and minerals, they are also easy to add into any skin care program.
Add a few drops to your favorite serum or moisturizer, use on their own to hydrate, try them out as a simple and effective oil cleanser, or use on the skin before a luxurious Gua Sha or facial rolling treatment.
If skin minimalism is your thing, a botanical oil is a must!

2. Recycle (Or Upcycle) Your Beauty Empties
Feel good knowing we always use environmental-friendly packaging that is accepted by most curb-side recycling pick-ups or bottled in glass containers that can easily be reused at home.
We love “upcycling” our glass bottles as apothecary-chic vases for fresh flowers, or jars for holding trinkets, bobby pins, or spare change!

3. Get Crafty - Make Your Own Eco-Friendly Products
There’s no better time to embrace Spring Cleaning, and to use safe, natural and clean products while doing it!
DIY cleaners are a breeze to make at home, using minimal ingredients.
Citrus scents, such as Lemon Essential Oil or Grapefruit Essential Oil can make cleaning feel less like a chore - and it will smell a lot better than industrial chemical-heavy cleansers.
Here is one of our favorite recipes to make your own “do-it-all” cleanser for purifying most high-touch surfaces.
Amazing All Purpose Cleaner (For Use on Most Surfaces)
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 1 cup distilled water
- 15 drops Citrus Essential Oil Blend (or any combination of your favorite citrus oils)
Add all ingredients to a spray bottle and shake well to combine.

4. Bigger Size, Better Value, Less Waste
Most of your favorite Source Vital products come in larger bulk sizes. Instead of purchasing your beloved Algae Deep Cleanse every month or two, upgrade to our larger size, for less waste, and for a more wallet-friendly option.
Love our Deozein Natural Deodorant Spray? Consider buying our refill size and top off that bottle you use on the daily.
Cleaner Hands Spray, Gel and Hand Wash also have larger refill sizes to help you reuse your existing packaging.
