Your Guide To A Natural Medicine Cabinet

7:56 PM

I'm so excited for this post! I have been using Shaklee products for 4 years now (wish I found it years ago) and I swear I learn something new every week. I'm constantly switching OTC products with Shaklee's and as a result we are a healthier family and would you believe it we save money too! There isn't a day that Shaklee isn't apart of it. This post is a guide to a natural medicine cabinet. These are from a bunch of Shaklee Distributors who have had great results and I'm here to share them with you! Of course this list could go on forever but they are the top favorites.

(Swap out everyday, over-the-counter products for the highlighted Shaklee products.)
