A minimal home tour: the bathroom

More so a quick glimpse at all of my products- because hey, let’s be honest, it’s a bathroom.

Although, with this being said, it’s not an overlooked space in the slightest, as it does form part of my everyday routine after all. I chose to keep it as calm, neutral and minimal as possible (partly because I can’t stand a countertop full of bottles, and partly because I just don’t have a lot of products in the first place).

Speaking of which, everything you’ll see here is cruelty-free and natural, mostly plastic-free and some completely organic. And all from Faithful To Nature, of course.

Some details next to my (yet to be used) batha muscle relaxing massage bar from Lush , another bottle of The Apothecary’s Body Oil , my essential oil burner,currently filled with my favourite oils for the bathroom-peppermint or eucalyptus.

In my shower you’ll always find some kind of natural, plastic-free soap, my zero-waste shaver and my all-time favourite shampoo and conditioner from Hey Gorgeous. Not pictured is the giant tub of coconut oil, and my home-made body scrub (you can find the recipe HERE).

Whenever I can get my hands on some, I LOVE adding Eucalyptus to my shower head. Not only does it make the whole bathroom feel like a spa, it actually has some health benefits as well (which you can read about over HERE).

It is bathroom after all, so I had to mention the toilet situation. Did you know a more sustainable option to conventional toilet paper exists? Gudsheet is made from sugar cane, not wrapped in plastic, and a portion of every sale goes towards improving water & sanitation in South Africa.

I also choose a natural, herbal air freshener over the toxic stuff, and this one’s from The Apothecary.

After all of this, I like to keep my bathroom clean with a non-toxic, anti-bacterial, all-purpose bathroom cleaner. I’m currently using THIS one from SoPure.


Now that you’ve seen the bits and bobs that make up this space, I hope you found something new that you’d like to try out or add to your daily routine! And as always, let me know if there’s anything you’d still like to know or ask by leaving a comment below.

Kitchen next? I think yes.
