LüSa Organics Giveaway!

LuSa Organics goodness.

It's been a while since I've hosted a LüSa Organics giveaway, so I thought today would be a great day to share one with you.

I'm celebrating the milestone of 3000 Clean Facebook fans. Because for me – way out here on this quiet country road – that sure feels like a lot of people.

And I'm happy/honored/amazed/dumbfounded/thrilled that you're here.


I founded LüSa Organics in 2006, just after Lupine was born. (Check out this photo from back in the day, cutting soap with Lupine on my back!)

Pete and I both quit our jobs and decided to leap into the world of self employment.

We never looked back.

We named LüSa after our two children, Lupine (then just days old) and Sage (4 1/2 years). We had been searching for a name and just after Lupine was born I looked at Pete and said, "LuSa! It's LuSa!" And it was.

Our kids have grown up in this business. Until three years ago LüSa was in our home, and these days we spend two
days a week together at LüSa. It would be hard for our business and family to be more intertwined. Sometimes I imagine our kids grown up and far away, catching a scent that transports them back to this time.

Through the years our kids have grown, our product line has grown, and our business has grown.

But so much remains the same.

We still make every item by hand. Every. Single. Item. As I type this, Steven (our production guru) is in the next room, pouring a batch of Booty Balm. Out of a small steel pitcher. By hand.

That's just how we do it.

I think somehow it infuses a special magic in what we make.

And then there's this space. This blog.

Sure, it's linked to LüSa, but very much it's own entity as well.

Somewhere along the way I decided I wanted to write as a way of showing our customers who was behind the body care we make.

I wanted you to know me. To trust me. To feel safe with me.

I wanted you to see me for who I was – a mama with a baby on my back instead of a big profit driven corporate machine.

And I think I did that.

Goodness. I know I did. You see me. You know me. Right down to the cluttered corners of my basement and my soul.

And along the way I stopped thinking of you as customers and started thinking of you as friends. I realized that even without LüSa in my life I would be here, sharing with you.

And I'm honored to take this journey with you. Whether you're a LüSa customer, a blog reader, or both.

And I'm not sure what to say except –

Thank you.

For listening.

For being here.

And mostly for trusting me.

With your baby's first bath. With every diaper change from birth until they're big.

With your family's hand-washing and baths and showers and all the rest.

It's an honor.

Thank you for choosing to buy product made by a small family business. By my small family business. Because you could buy something else. But instead, you buy from us. And so everything – from the little farmhouse we call home to Lupine's violin lesson to Sage's science book to the food on our table. All of it is there because of you.

Thank you.

So. A giveaway then!

To celebrate you being awesome.

    I love lüsa cause you’re real, authentic, and honest. I also love your products but what the company stands for means just as much to me, even more. Keep on keepin on!

    Also recommended the baby wipe tonic to my cousin-in-law and now she won’t use anything else!

    I love your blog, Rachel; your life is a lot of fun to watch this way. 🙂 I’m so glad you are doing so well – 3,000 fans! That’s fantastic! xo

  3. Caitie says:

    I love how inspiring your blog is, whether it’s to dream, to go after what you want, or just to be in the moment. I’m sure you bring all that same amazing energy to LuSa 🙂

  4. eidolons says:

    We use your bedtime roll on every night. My two little ones call it “magic potion” and it keeps bad dreams and general night fears away. It makes bedtime so much more peaceful. (:

  5. Adriane says:

    Thank you for this give away. I love knowing a bit about the people behind the product. I live in DC but grew up on a farm. When I am feeling overwhelmed by the amount of people and chaos that surrounds me I visit your blog to feel more centered and remember the smell of the earth.

  6. kris says:

    Fun giveaway! I love seeing photos of your operation, and hearing about your trips to the shop with your family. Sounds like a LOT of work, yet a LOT of fun and learning.

  7. Sarah says:

    I’m 35 wks pregnant with my first baby & just received your Welcome Little One! package at my shower…I’m already in love with your products! I’d love a chance to win some more of your goodies. 🙂

  8. Jillian says:

    I love your blog. It feels nourishing to my soul. And I love Lusa products. They feel nourishing for my body and for my family. So so happy I stumbled across this blog many years ago looking for felted soap tutorials!

  9. Marie says:

    Your products and your blog both come from the same place. They present a real, lovely, basic, true and simple bit of energy sent out into the world, for healing, helping, connecting, relating, soothing. Both your products and your blog are nourishing and we treasure them!

  10. Laura says:

    I love both your blog and your products. I was first drawn to your blog after a friend posted on facebook what you wrote on motherhood. Then I started trying your soaps and now I can’t live without them! I’m expecting my first baby in March 2014 and can’t wait to try your baby items!

  11. Anne in NC says:

    At this very moment there is a bar of Lusa Lemongrass soap in our shower, with a bar of Gaia’s Garden waiting in the wings! I’d love to win your Body gift package!! Thank you for this peaceful place that I visit every day.

  12. Gem says:

    I love your products for many reasons – the love that goes into them, the ingredients, their smell and effectiveness. I love how one of your boxes smells when we open it up! Your cheek and chin balm heals so well. I gifted some to my nephew in his stocking last year. When he fell and scraped his face that balm had him healed in days with no scars. Incredible!

  13. Alina says:

    I haven’t tried any of your products yet, but would love to try some cheek and chin balm for my girls.

  14. Margaret says:

    I haven’t tried your products yet, but I have been thinking you may be one of my gift to myself for Christmas. I love your blog and find it inspirational. Thank you for the chance to win.

  15. Angela says:

    I stumbled across your blog about 2 years ago… Lurking ever since! Generous giveaway, thank you so much.

  22. Laura says:

    I love how you bare your soul, I’ve reposted your articles when they speak for me too. There is a humbleness to what you do and I appreciate being witness to it all. My sister in-law is expecting any day now, what a gift it would be to send her a basket of goodies from LuSa

  23. Stacy says:

    Keep up the good work! Love, luck and blessings to you and your family as you continue down your amazing life path!!

  26. Bonnie Groves-Cantrell says:

    We love that your products are natural and the way they smell is amazing. Whenever we get a box from LuSa my son has to grab it and take a good hard sniff.. LOL I’ve recommended you to family and friends

  27. Jeannette says:

    I love LuSa because you make good stuff that we love to use, with ingredients that won’t harm me or my family. Here’s all the LuSa stuff we use (so far):

    bar soap
    lotion bar
    lip balm
    baby wipe juice
    sleeping potion
    booty balm
    da balm
    cheek & chin
    bug spray
    sugar scrubs

    Love it all.

  28. Holly says:

    I agree with a comment above, I love seeing an unschooling SAHM succeeding with her business.
    I’m a newb around here, but I’ve grown accustomed to coming to your blog every morning first thing, right after I brew a cup of tea. Thanks for being you and sharing so much with us! Your posts about unschooling (and the organization posts!) are my favorite, so far. I feel encouraged about my path when I read your posts (our lives seem similar in a couple of ways.
    Thanks for the chance!

  29. Rachel A. says:

    I really enjoy reading “Clean.” Feels like talking with an old friend. Also very inspirational to see people successfully making it as small business owners.

  30. Megan says:

    My absolute favorite product is your Breathe soap. My asthmatic 5 year old told me about a year ago during a bout of pneumonia that she needed her special “bweeve” soap so she could “bweeve better and stop squeaking.” <3 You can't make that stuff up folks! From the mouths of babes.

  31. Erin says:

    I love your blog, and when I found it a few months back, I read it right back to the beginning! It is a place of calm in this crazy world. 🙂

  32. brooke says:

    I haven’t tried your products yet, but I love reading your blog, and following you on Pinterest. I’m so inspired by your commitment to creating safe, wonderful products, and your love for your family truly shines through.

    Thank you for a chance to win. I’d love to try your products on my daughter, myself, and my baby on the way.

  33. Kelly Socha says:

    I love everything I’ve ordered. Your products work and they smell amazing. With your products, I know I can trust that they won’t harm myself or my children. Thanks for making real quality items!

  34. Holly Denham says:

    I enjoy your blog especially, because it reminds me to hold space in my life for my actual life…not all the busy that goes with it.

  35. Brandy says:

    I am a blog follower, I have never tried your products but am interested.
    Thanks for all the lovely posts….they are true to my heart too most of the time.

  36. Jenn W says:

    My daughter and I love your citrus body scrub. We also love all the various soaps we’ve tried and the bug spray.

  37. Caroline Doane says:

    Your products are amazing. I’ve been following along for so long, I couldn’t even guess how long it’s been. I love introducing my family and friends to Lüsa. I can’t thank you enough for offering such amazing things while keeping it small, keeping it family, keeping it safe to use.

  38. Julie says:

    I’ve used your products since the Queen Bee days. Your blog continues to inspire and help me on my journey. We always loved when Grace would come home after playing with Sage and she’d smell so yummy just from being in your home! 😉

  39. Jenny Miller says:

    I have been a follower of your blog for a long time, but haven’t tried any of your products yet. I really appreciate your authenticity. Your blog is real and not “fluffy”. I was so glad when you all bought your dream homestead, as we are unschooling homesteaders, too. Thanks for all you do and the great giveaway!

  40. Lydia says:

    I only recently found your blog but I love it because I identify so much with your way of living and I really love to support small/family/organic businesses!

  41. Anna says:

    Between being pregnant with, then birthing what are now a sometimes grumpy five year old and itchy-not-so-great-sleeping 3 year old, we’ve been through almost your entire catalog of products. Haven’t tried one that I haven’t loved.

  42. Laura Javier says:

    I recently gave your soaps a try. Breathe really got me hooked. Your products are by far the best! (and as a natural soap junkie, I have tried many!) So thank you for doing and loving what you do for us! 🙂

  43. Elizabeth Volker says:

    I love LuSa because it’s family oriented, caring, honest, and transparent about it’s products and mission. The products themselves are pretty cool too 😉

  44. Laura Raye says:

    Whoa! The love in the comments and the quantity of comments in just a short time!! Congratulations Rachel for being brave and focused on making your truth and succeeding! I still have some Dancing Fool and Tofani soap…just so I can smell them 🙂 I just ordered some Baby booty balm, organic wipes, and butt juice for a friend that just welcomed a baby girl into this world. I’m thrilled I can give her your awesome and safe baby products. I’m so happy that we reconnected and I’m forever inspired by you! Guess what? Kyle is 11 today!!! LuSa is wonderful, you are wonderful, and I feel wonderful about using your products. Definitely made my day a better day! Big kisses and loves from Hawaii 🙂

  45. Patrizia says:

    I don’t kwon if I can try to win this giveaway, because I live in Italy. But it’s ok if I am not admitted, I just want to say thank you because your posts always support me when I’m feeling down and especially when I feel a tired and lonely mother. (I’m sorry for my very poor english)

  46. Allie Q says:

    I love LuSa because your products work and you inspire me, as a business a mama and a person. Thank you.

  47. Kayla says:

    Love the LuSa products–fabulous results with fabulous ingredients I can feel good about using on my family! And love that it is truly a family company–in Wisconsin!! Ad last…I love how encouraging the blog is! Thank you!

  48. Heather says:

    A chance for some of your lovely products? Count me in! I love checking in every day or two to see what’s new in your world! Thank-you.

  49. KaliP says:

    I love LuSa because of the simple organic ingredients. I love Clean because it’s so refreshing and a balm to my soul.

  50. Tayanna says:

    Clean is a great heart to heart resource for wholesome, homemade, creative living. Today I wanted a reminder for making kombucha as well as almond milk. Thanks to the handy search field.. there they both were! Thanks Rachel 🙂

  51. Sara Conradt says:

    I love LuSa so much that I spent over an hour looking for the booty balm because it works great when my son (who is allergic to everything) gets wind burn or a dry-skin rash around his lips. It was in the camper bathroom bag…see – I don’t leave home with out it.

    I would like to win the “body package”

  52. Ally says:

    I love your blog posts. A new friend and I bonded over the fact that we both love your blog. She said that if you lived closer, we’d all be friends.

  53. Jen N says:

    Hi Rachel – I’m using your “Simple Home Awaits” (http://lusaorganics.typepad.com/clean/2012/01/your-simple-home-awaits-the-plan.html) approach to prepare for our new baby boy. Starting with one simple shelf, filled with way too many CDs that could be enjoyed by someone else more than us!

    While I haven’t yet used either yet (due Dec 22), I am eager to try your Baby Wipe Juice, and have pinned your homemade baby bathing formula.

    Thanks for the inspiration, both in products and words (your whats) and your business model (your hows). Cheers.

  54. Cassandra says:

    I very recently got my first LuSa product after being a fan of the blog for years. It was booty balm that my husband’s cousin sent to me after I had surgery while pregnant. I needed something for my belly but I also needed something for diapering my next little one coming in a month. I knew whatever I got from you would be safe for both a healing incision and diaper rash. It’s been used for a lot more since then (like keeping my nostrils from crusting up and falling off my face while I had a cold), and thankfully she got the biggest size so it will make it to actually be used for diapering.

  55. Kerri says:

    Thank you for this giveaway. I follow your blog/pinterest board and the entry from just the other day, the one that was an affirmation that “you’re doing it right” was exactly what I needed to hear at just the right moment! Cheers. Xx

  56. SusanK says:

    Hi, I like reading your blog and hearing about your life in the country. I’d love to try your products.

  57. LeeAnn says:

    So happy for your milestone! You deserve all the praise and recognition. Thank you for being a local source of trusted products for my family!

  58. Erin Coffey says:

    I would love to try your baby products in my little. I have been looking for something for his delicate skin.

  59. Natalie says:

    Love your blog and your soap! And I love that you are successful at both your business and family endeavors.

  60. Amelia says:

    I love LuSa because I feel safe putting your products on both my and my daughter’s sensitive skin 🙂

  61. Janice says:

    I love your soap. So much!! It smells delicious and I love knowing it is safe to use (with no artificial or unidentifiable ingredients). Plus I love buying from a family, not a corporation. Thank you!!!

  62. Em says:

    I love being able to trust your products. I love knowing where they come from and feeling so connected to the source. And I love the amazing scents you are able to safely create! Mmmmmmmmmm.

  63. sarah andersen says:

    I love your soap that I purchased at an art fair and started to learn and love other products too!

  64. Debbie says:

    I haven’t tried Lusa yet, but would really like to! The blog I love because it is positive, gentle, uplifting, true, down to earth (in some many lovely..and often literal…ways) and full of a life of herbs, real food, homeschooling, parenting, mindful living etc. that feel familiar and good to my heart. Thank you!

  65. Kat S says:

    I love that you’re local. I love how much love you put into your products, and I love how well they work! The smell of your Belly Balm will always remind me of my two pregnancies.

  66. Octavia says:

    Funny, I always think of you as my friend too, even though we’ve never met. And then I feel weird for thinking it, but that feeling gives me peace. So thank you for that and sharing your life with all of us.

  67. Kimball says:

    Such a generous soul in so many things. Thank you for the opportunity to finally try some of your gorgeous smelling products!

  68. Efi Maryeli says:

    I’m trying to figure out how to make a business for myself. I love reading all these success stories from you. I would love to have some of your products to remind me that I can make it, too!!!!

  69. Thursday Took says:

    I’m not sure whether I should be entering, as I live in Australia, but here goes anyway. Any chance you’ll deliver internationally any time soon? Anyway, I love your blog and your products sound wonderful. I love the honesty, simplicity and passion of the life you and your family have chosen. Thank you so much for allowing all of us a peek into it.

  70. Erica B says:

    Like others have said, it’s great to feel like you know the people behind a product. Your success is inspiring! My first baby is due this December and we decided to stock up on Lusa items because we’ve heard nothing but good things about you. Can’t wait for our little guy to be counted amongst your newest, smallest fans! 🙂

  71. Karen says:

    So many favorites – I love the patchouli soap, and the lavender lotion.
    I always smell what is inside the box before I open it and I love that.
    I also love that you let us all know who you and your family are.

  72. Carrie says:

    So excited for you!! Congrats on the followers and thanks for sharing your life with us 🙂 Seeing into your life has helped me on many days where I’ve felt beat up. Thank you for being so inspiring

  73. JennG says:

    I just recently found your blog & product line, but would love to try some– I have an almost 3 year old with eczema issues and another babe on the way. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  74. Martha says:

    There are Booty Balm canisters in every room of the house and always travel with one in the diaper bag. We love your products & your spirit. Thank you!

  75. Madalyn says:

    I adore LuSa products! I have recommended your soap and balms to so many friends. I love going to their homes for a visit and spying the random jar of booty balm on the dresser or bar of soap in the bathroom. It feels great to know that everyone who I’ve recommended these products to has loved them just as much as I. Thank you LuSa for being just so darn awesome!

  76. PixieTrish says:

    Honesty. Clean is honest, open and present, even when the discussion is challenging. I can always come here for ideas and support – they may not be easy to execute, but they’re real and for the best of my kids. I’m so glad you’re here.

  77. Jenn Krivanek says:

    I found your blog first and enjoy your writing so much! ordered da balm and a shampoo bar last month, loved it! Here’s to all of you and your beautiful family business!

  80. Juli says:

    I love this blog as you always manage to inspire me instead of make me feel like I am not with it enough!

  81. Cathy says:

    I’d be excited to try your products.I love your realness, and how open you are to sharing the best of the goodness you know. I’m inspired by you.thanks

    I love LuSa! Good products that Are safe using on the entire family. I also love that the money I spend stays in Wisconsin,

  86. Brittney Gomez says:

    I love LüSa because it is a small family business. I love it because I know you love it, and that can be seen in your dedication the the quality of your products, and the care you take by making them by hand. I love LüSa because it was the first product I used on my son (and now daughter also ;)) that didn’t make him break out. I love it because I know I am putting something REAL, and healthy on my family’s skin. I love LüSa because you are different, you are unique <3

  87. Bambi says:

    What dont I love every product Ive tried I has been my new fav..but it all started with a referral to the booty balm I now give it as gifts to all new my friends new babies!

  88. Peppin says:

    I love that your soap is made by a family in rural Wisconsin. Your soap smells very nice and is not baby of scary ingredients (like formaldehyde). I used cloth baby wipes with your baby wipe juice when we cloth diapered our baby.

  89. Isis- Little Mountain Haven says:

    It started with the peaceful parenting series, then migrated to reading all about your new farm, some un-schooling, some crafts… and then I was hooked on your life, your family, your farm.
    Your photos and words are so incredibly beautiful that it’s simply a gift to my tired mama life to read, see, learn & grow throughout the week. You bring me much needed balance. Thank you.
    I have yet to try your Lusa products, but they look wonderful and I can smell them even from afar.

  90. Laura says:

    I love LuSa products. I just gave the new baby gift to one of my dear friends and felt so confident in the gift. I wish I had found LuSa when my kids were babies!

  91. Angi says:

    I am hoping to do all of our holiday shopping locally ~ we are so blessed to have such an awesome product line that is made RIGHT HERE in little ol’ Viroqua 🙂

  92. Kendra Mitchell says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love all your products. They make me happy (and clean :))

  93. Lindsay Serrahn says:

    I’m in the middle of starting my own soap making business, and my husband and I found your products while on a visit to Madison (we live in Door County). We find your products amazing for being a small, local business!

  94. Tamika says:

    I tried posting earlier, and it went away and said error 🙁

    I really enjoy your blog, and have yet to enjoy your products! I keep mentioning to family that it would be a great gift for the holidays. Everyone keeps asking me what they can get us since the m.i.l. Is obsessed with scented conventional soaps (that we do not use)so, I mentioned to her that I would love to try lusa organics!

  95. Audrey says:

    Love your blog!! Would love to try your products for myself, and also, just found out I’m going to be a grandmother for the first time 🙂 🙂 Want to start them off on the right foot!!!

  96. Emily says:

    Rachel, I love reading your blog. You family has such a lovely way about you and you are inspiring to me. I love the parenting essays that you write. And there is something about someone else living in Wisconsin that makes you seem to get where I live and the life I could have. Keep writing and I will deffinately be buying what ever book you decide to write 🙂

  97. Amanda J says:

    Congrats Rachel,
    I’ve enjoyed following along on your journeys. I find you honest and inspiring. Thank you. And oh, those Valentines, how truly special to be discovered by a family who will take note.

  98. Jennifer Schafrath says:

    I appreciate your commitment to all natural products that really work! I’m going to use this forum to beg some more for your deodorant prototype. I haven’t gotten to try it, but I really want to make the change to a more natural, reliable solution. I love your products and am proud to support a small business.

  99. Tracie D says:

    I love everything you represent and how you are teaching your children values along the way. I started supporting you to help local Wi businesses and love that with each purchase I help support local people who hard at work. And you make amazing product that keeps me coming back.

  100. debra says:

    I first tried your amazing sugar scrubs and soaps seven years ago, when a very generous friend gifted me an assortment of goodies, and I have loved sharing your goods with friends over the years – I am never disappointed with the amazing quality of your work (and I love soap. I’ve tried many many home-crafted soaps and yours ROCKS!), and I just don’t know how you continue to make such good stuff while growing bigger, but I’m so glad you do!!

  101. Laura Becher says:

    Every word you write is honest and pure like your product. I dream and thrive live and love and work and craft pure and simple and your vision and action give me hope. Thank you!

  102. Shannon says:

    I’ve actually never tried any of your products (gasp!), but am a long-time reader. I’ve always loved your blog and authenticity and as a fellow self-employed blogger I have the utmost respect for what y’all are doing.

  103. rita says:

    Congratulations! I found your blog about 2 or 3 years ago and have been consistently coming to this space. I love Clean because it gives me great ideas, makes me think deeper about things that are important to me and my family, and gives me a sense that I’m not alone in my non-traditional choices.

  104. april says:

    Thanks for your posts. although we have very different lives, we have a lot in common, and it’s wonderful to be reminded of that!

  105. Dreamer Becky says:

    Oh, Rachel you are AMAZING+*+*+*+

  106. stephanie says:

    I love that LuSa is safe (for both the big and little people in the house), always smells fantastic and is so versatile! We use the soap and the booty balm for so many different things around our house.

    I appreciate your authenticity on Clean, your balance between striving to improve your life and loving it the way it is – imperfections and mess and all. I think the inspiration you give to mamas, along with the gentle reminders to take care of themselves and find gratitude for each day, is so valuable and important. Thank you for being real.

    I love that picture of Lupine on your back while you’re working. I did that more times than I can count. Only way I could get anything done!

  110. Nina Valeo Cooke says:

    I love LuSa. For myself. For my children. For the world. A good, wholesome, honest company making good, wholesome, honest products.

    My favorite product? It has evolved from Baby Massage Oil getting rid of both my babes cradle cap to Booty Balm to your lavendar soap for me to your new shampoo bars! LOVE.

    Thanks, LuSa!

  111. Amy H. says:

    I love LuSa/Clean because of how much you inspire me, Rachel. Not only to adopt your natural lifestyle, but to be at peace with myself. Your posts on the realness in parenting and life keep me going when I am down- I revisit them frequently. Thank you for all that you do, you da bomb! 🙂

  112. Becca Smoochy says:

    I love LuSa because I can trust that I’m using products that are safe, environmentally responsible, and smell AMAZING. I wear the Grounded Essential Oil Blend every day and LOVE how many compliments I get on “my” smell. Of course I share that LuSa makes it and if YOU TOO become a LuSa junkie in a short while your fridge can be covered with magnetic words and all your books can be marked with fun inspirational affirmations!!!

  113. jacie says:

    You are an inspiration to me. I’m just starting to sell my products after a year formulating. My kids have inspired every aspect of my business and seeing how you all made it and managed to keep family involved is beautiful. I wish you Much luck in all endeavors. Warmth, peace, and positive vibes your way 🙂

  115. Aimee Smith says:

    I receive Clean everyday in my email. I get a lot in my inbox, but I always stop to look at your pictures and read your thoughts for the day. I have a very difficult marriage, and day to day, life can be very hard. I really love reading your thoughtful inspiring stories. Your outlook on life is so refreshing. It always gives me a bit of hope. Thank you for reminding me to look for the beauty in life..

  117. Liz says:

    I found your blog recently and I have been so inspired by your words and photographs! Thank you for sharing your life with us. I would love to try your LuSa products!

    I love LuSa because the chest rub helps my son so much when e had a cold! I rub it in is chest and feet and it works to ease is coughs. We call it his “special rub” that he loves!!

  119. Sarah says:

    I love that you built Lusa with your family. I once commented on a photo you posted saying it was so perfect I could cry. I find it so inspirational that you have made your own life. That makes me trust you and your products.

  120. Heather says:

    We love LuSa. Dh is a fan of the soaps, as a light sleeper I am thankful for sleeping solution and the Booty Balm come in handy on furbaby’s paws and scrapes. Thank you so much for sharing your blog and producing fabulous products. Looking forward to your next adventure!

  121. Jenifer Krause Beckman says:

    I love the lavender and patchouli lotion bars! Great for my hands and feet! A bonus is that I don’t need perfume because they smell so amazing!

  122. Christina Wilson says:

    I love both Clean & Lusa! Your products are amazing, & truly speak for themselves! We have tried almost every bar soap, lotion bar, EO blends, booty balm, cheek&chin, baby massage oil, etc & love them all! Your family & products are a part of my families life each & every day, & I wouldn’t want it any other way! I truly look forward to your blog posts, & it is usually the first thing I search for after getting my little one to bed (with your magic sleep potion, of course!)
    Thank you for being you!

  123. Natalie Carlson says:

    Lusa is the only soap I’ve found that keeps my skin clear and clean and prevents my eczema flair ups! Love it!! I can’t get enough of the Dancin fool soap and oatmeal and honey face bar. 🙂

  124. Krystal Medina says:

    I’m new to LuSa. I just got some EO roll-ons and chest rub to try. I used the Relaxing roll-on last night and really like it. We are trying to use more and more all-natural and organic products, especially EOs. There are so many LuSa products I would love to try!

  125. Raquel says:

    Thank you for creating products that I can trust to use on me and my little one. I love that I am able to use products for my daughter (wipe juice and booty balm) and me (various soaps, scrubs and roll on oils), that are practical, ethical, and lux all at once!

  126. karen says:

    i learned of lusa from a mom friend, and started with your babt products. wipe juice, booty balm, chest rub, massage oil. my little man loved it all. i started expanding into the soaps and scrubs and got my husband hooked, too. we are glad to be a lusa family!

  127. Jess says:

    I found your blog when I was pregnant with my twin boys three years ago. Since then it has been a constant source of inspiration. And I imagine I will always want lusa products around because they smell like my boys’ childhood.

  128. nicole stevens says:

    I love your products because I don’t trust any “conventional” baby products on the market. I choose you because Im too busy to make some good safe stuff myself. thanks

  129. Brooke G says:

    I love LuSa because I know what I am using is natural and pure, not filled with crap! And very much filled with love! You can tell how much you guys love your work! Thank you!

  130. Christen says:

    I LOVE Clean so much, it is so inspiring and helpful to read your blog posts! What you say helps encourage me to be the person I should be for my family! Now I know everyone’s style is different and I roll with that, but you have such great insight, and thank you for that! I sadly can’t say that I have tried your soaps or anything for that matter, but would love to and intend to some day soon! Who knows maybe I’ll get to try it out if I’m chosen in this giveaway! Thank you so much for this giveaway, I’m so excited for you!

    I love LuSa and Clean because I like knowing what’s in my products and what’s going on/in my and my family’s bodies and they smell and feel so good. Clean is just awesome, real, funny, and I learn so much from it.

  135. Sarah S says:

    I love the ideas for living a more pure, calm life on Clean. And I love LuSa Organics products. The smells, the ingredients, the fact you’re a small family-owned (WI) company, you care about your customers, and your products are amazing!

  142. Christine says:

    I absolutely LOVE all of the LuSa products I have tried. The best part is knowing that I am using all natural, completely non-toxic pure ingredients on my family’s skin. Supporting a funny & sweet small business owner just makes it all that much better!

  143. Christina says:

    I love LuSa for the safe products for my baby’s bum! And I love Clean for the simple loving reminders about parenting and the joys of daily life!

  150. Christina D. says:

    Honestly, I just love everything you stand for.
    Clean, FIMBY and The Beauty That Moves are my wise mama warrior blogs that have quietly seen me through hard times and given me strength.

    To be unapologetic for the the way I live my life and raise my family.
    To boycott the bullshit (with kindness, of course) from our bath to our table to our education. And find the beauty in it all.

    With love, I thank you.

  151. Jaqulyn Culp says:
