Let's face it we may be enjoying a little more "Me" time, or our hands may feel dry and cracked from all the hand washing.

To help you out we have compiled five home and beauty products that are good for you, good for the Earth and some have amazing stories of how they were created. It's all about feeling good about ourselves, our loved ones and our planet.

The Cozee was designed and created by Paul & Carolynne LaRue. Their daughter Brianna, who has cerebral palsy, loves going outdoors so they searched for a portable heating blanket, but couldn't find one. 

The idea for The Cozee was born. 

The Cozee is the first 100 percent portable, battery-powered heating blanket! It has a micro-fleece interior for comfort and to hold in heat, with a durable, water resistant exterior to shield against wind, rain and snow. The included battery pack supplies over five hours of continuous warmth and features two USB ports making it easy to charge your mobile devices no matter where you are. The Cozee products are designed and engineered in America.

Sonoma Wool Company believes the qualities of wool are ideal to be used for practical products to make your home a more natural and soothing place.  From luxurious bedding to simple, long-lasting dish drying mats, you’ll fall in love with all things wool. Wool is water-wicking. The same qualities that make wool breathable, also allow it to wick water away, and remain bacteria, mold and mildew-free.

The Spatty is here to make sure you get every last ounce. Think of the rubber scraper you use in the kitchen, but with a smaller, more contoured design to get into those hard to reach areas of an almost-empty container. The Cosmetic Spatty comes in 6-inch and 12-inch sizes and are must-haves for your cosmetic and toiletry bags. 

Consumer Reports says you discard up to 25 percent of your products. Spatty allows you to use all of your product, saves you hundreds of dollars, and will pay for itself after only a couple of uses.
