  • The best toxin-free deodorant: 15% off for you kids! It’s strange times we live in. Oooh, yeah. I was asked a while back on social media what deodorant I use.

Chey Birch, more

  • The best toxin-free cosmetics – my personal listicle Yesterday, I shared how to choose the best toxin-free cosmetics. As promised, here’s my own safe beauty shopping list. It’s not a definitive list. And I recognise that nothing is ever fully toxin-free. As ever, it’s about doing what you can. As ever, it’s mostly about doing with less. Less is more. Less is more. more
  • How to choose the best toxin-free cosmetics I’ve done several toxin-free cosmetics lists over the years, each with several updates…resulting in a bit of a jumble. So I’ve pulled them apart and rejigged them all with updated information. And before I go on… I really want to emphasise that making the switch to safer and cleaner shouldn’t be about buying more stuff. It’s more
  • How to buy toxin-free nail polish *Updated March, 2016. Let’s kick off with this: most nail polish is made with the same gunk used to make car paint. Yep, a toxic melange of solvents, film formers, resins and plasticisers. Whatever they are. But shall we move on? And see if there is some light at the end of this fumey tunnel? more
  • how to choose a toxin-free sunscreen *this post has been updated in red below Sunscreens confuse me. They’re full of toxins…should I bother with it at all? Zinc? (oooh, but the nano-particles?!)…You too? Good. I did some scouting, asked experts and here’s what I found…just in time for Australia Day!! A lot of the sunscreens out there do NOT protect us more

  • Pre-order I Quit Sugar For Life now and get my Chocolate Cookbook free Hello dear friends. You might have heard – I’ve written another book, a follow-up to I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook. It’s taken the better part of a year to put together. It’s a reflection, however, of my life’s work. Here she is…or the cover image, at least. As you can more

Some of you have been asking how this affiliates set-up works. And how you can more
  • paleo coconut flour muffins – sugarfree, of course I’ve been asked a few times about coconut flour. Is it a grain? Is it starchy? Good for kids quitting sugar? I could’ve mouthed off based on a vague knowledge. But I dug around a bit… Erstwhile, my conclusions: There are six reasons to give coconut flour a crack. 1. It’s sweet tasting, but contains more
  • I now sleep 7-8 hours! This is what changed my entire life… I’m aware the headline above is perhaps predictably blog-bait-ish. But it’s actually the truth. I’ve been insomniac since I was seven years old I’ve experimented with all kinds of salves. But, after many trials and errors, I’ve found a handful of (almost)  silver-bullets. Like most of you, I also have multiple lifestyle things I do, more
  • Good news: you can still buy I Quit Sugar Gelatin I decided to produce this stuff a few years back, because, well, it made sense to. The good quality gelatin – for making panacottas, gummies, etc and that comes with amazing gut healing and digestive-aiding properties – came from South America (via the USA). Why couldn’t we produce a version here using pasture-raised bones (that more
  • I travelled for 4 months with only 8 kilos. This is what it looked like. I’ve been away since late May; about four-and-a-half months. I’ve been hiking and working and writing between LA, New York, London, Scotland, Cornwall, Crete, Paris, Slovenia and Slovakia. For the bulk of this I’ve carried a small backpack that weighed in on various flights at 8kg (I did also have a case of work materials more

Read on… Some of you have been following my involvement with Two Good Co social enterprise. It work likes this: you buy one of their hearty soups or “jar salad” (in Summer) for more
  • So, everything is going to look very different… …because I’m finally updating this site. This home base will have a redesign. A tightening up. The daggy formatting and fonts will go. She’s having a haircut! It all kicks off next week. Meantime, here’s a few things I might share about sarahwilson.com, since you’re here. It’s prolly not news to you guys. Most of more
  • Here’s the beauty products I pack when I travel… This year I’ve travelled a lot. And, in fact, for the past three years I’ve lived mostly in transit. And so my “beauty regime” in general is a simple and mobile affair. A big bunch of you ask me via the socials to share what such a regime looks like and today I’m obliging. Previously more
  • My Sarah Wilson Round-Up of Signs The World is Improving I’m an optimist. I’m seeing signs that the world is cottoning on to the need to change the way we brazenly consume and consume and consume.  Almost seven years ago I (outrageously!) suggested we all eat 6-9 teaspoons of sugar. And stop drinking fruit juice. What do you know, the World Health Organisation came out more
  • Can I drink alcohol when I quit sugar? Surely you can’t drink any alcohol when you quit sugar! It’s chockers full of the white stuff, right?!

  • Golly! Your nail polish might be making you fat… Nail polish. I don’t use it. For the same reasons I avoid conventional beauty products, sun screen and perfume. The stuff is toxic and not necessary. Now, new research claims nail polish can cause weight gain. Good Lord. The recent study, conducted by researchers at Duke University and the Environmental Working Groupg (EWG), tested the urine more
  • Could you have chemical intolerance? What next? I make it a personal mission to live my life as toxin-free as I can. High toxic loads aren’t good for any of us…even more so if you’re struggling with autoimmune disease. For anyone with autoimmune issues, chemicals and heavy metals seem to be both the cause and effect. Research published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology shows that approximately 20 per more
  • One month without exercise, soap and loo paper… I just got back from a month in true retreat. I was rather cryptic about where I was heading and I committed to not sharing my experience in real time on social media. Golly, what freedom! I’m happy to now flesh out the details because I reckon a few of you will find them interesting. more
  • How to (really) detox your home If you’ve been following this blog for a while you’ll know I’m rather committed to keeping my home ecologically and ergonomically minimal and sustainable. I’m also into lowering the toxic load where possible.

Always trying things out… Please be aware, I’ve not been paid to run this list. By anyone. The recommendations are genuine. In the past few days a few more
  • Why I use beauty oils instead of cosmetics Last week I shared my personal toxin-free cosmetics listicle. In the past I’ve also covered off safe sunscreens, toxin-free nail polish and safe fake tan. An update from my ablutions front: Slowly, slowly I’ve been reducing what I use to a very small kit. And it pretty much comes down to…oil. Even my mascara. And cleanser. I follow Ayurvedic more
  • Is resistant starch the cure for chronic constipation? Gut health makes the world go around. This is where the wellness movement is at right now. And crucial to good gut health is sturdy, regular poo action. For many, especially those of us with an autoimmune disease, regular poo action is but a pipe dream (which sounds like an ablution entendre; so many things more
  • Am I a hypocrite? There’s a horrible feeling that grips at me from behind the neck at times. It’s like a sucky monster that latches on when I do something seemingly counter to my (often vocal) ethical stance on something. And it whispers in my ear, ”Sarah, you’re a double-standard, Pollyanna-ish flake”. Does he hang about your dowager’s hump more
