Valentine's Day is a happy opportunity for me to bring you starry-eyed lovers safe, eco-friendly goodies for Valentine's Day + every day. Here are a few more green lovelies to set the mood! 

Start with a little scintillating spritz. I've actually been spun round by a passerby's aromatic scent while out and about in Chicago. If you're searching for a fragrance with the same head-turning affect, try Le Bella Figura, a line of exquisite, natural perfumes handmade in Chicago using whole plant botanicals. La Bella Figura is committed to products free of parabens, petrochemicals, silicone, harsh detergents + artificial emulsifiers. Order samples here.

Did you know conventional candles are made from toxic petroleum byproducts? Create a sensual, candlelit atmosphere with a few fragrant, eco-friendly soy candles. KOBO candles are made of domestically grown sustainable soybeans, while cotton wicks provide a pure and clean flame. The packaging alone is swoon-worthy. Check out the elegant wares here. Things are heating up. 

Remember friends, you don't need an excuse, a holiday, or a beau to gussy up. Do it because you want to! Vegan designer Stella McCartney uses recycled hardware + organic cotton gussets to create fetching underpinnings. Find SM here + here + right on over here. Eberjey is an intimate apparel brand with a selection of organic lingerie. You can find the softest, most sumptuous chemises {the kind you want to wear again + again}. Bonus: their comely camis can be used as everyday layering pieces.  

Now you can really do the safety dance. French Letter produces condoms using natural latex harvested under sustainable and fair trade conditions. That means the rubber producers are paid a royalty to help improve their lives. French Letter condoms source latex through Fair Deal Trading, the only company in the world paying a fair-trade premium for latex rubber. 

Whether you're planning a solo evening, a romantic night out on the town, or an amorous indoor dinner for two, it's always a good idea to include eco-friendly products.
