💦 | Vegan | Cruelty-Free | Clean Beauty Oils |💦
Hello to all of my amazing readers, and thank you for joining me! 🙂 Today I wanted to discuss the benefits of clean oils in the health and beauty industry. 2018 was all about trying new products for me. I recently published two blog posts here on Mind Over Mango with companies that use vegan oils in their products. I decided since my collection is growing, I would compile my go-to health and beauty oils that I believe will help to kickstart your new year on a high note! At the bottom of this blog post you will see a shopping carousel where you may find many of these products!
Some of these products have been gifted to me for testing purposes. This is not a sponsored post, and any opinions stated have been based on my own experiences. For more information about the importance of transparency on my platforms, always feel free to check out my privacy + disclosure page!
💦 1.) beautifood 💦
I had the pleasure of encountering this cruelty-free company who had emerged into the haircare market in 2018. Beautifood is a female-founded, Southern California startup that prides themselves on transparency in their products. In 2018 they released their first product: a food-based Avocado Hair Oil. Beautifood’s product is handmade in small patches, is 100% vegan, and is also non-toxic. Their hair oil is free from silicones, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, perfume, colorants, and dyes.
💧 How I Use It 💧
With beautifood, a little goes a long way. I found that the recommended dose of two to three drops has been plenty enough to revitalize my hair. I like applying this oil from the mid-length of my hair to the ends, as my hair becomes particularly frail the farther down the strands I go. After a day where I’ve added heat to my hair, I’ve found that this product has been a lifesaver. Even with heat protectants, my hair usually endures some level damage, so applying beautifood’s Avocado Oil has proven to be a great remedy in nursing my hair back to health!
Beautifood was kind enough to offer a special discount code to my readers. Use my code MINDOVERMANGO10 for 10% off your purchase of this Avocado Oil at checkout!

💦 2.) 5AM Provisions 💦
I recently tested out 5AM Provisions, whose products fall within both the health and beauty market. 5 AM uses Amaranth Oil in their goods. This vegetable-based oil claims to have endless health benefits, such as moisturizing and repairing damaged skin, and may even treat medical conditions such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, and has anti-cancerous properties as well.
This oil is filled with a super nutrient known as squalene, which they state is perhaps the best antioxidant that you could ever use. Their Amaranth Oil can be used topically, orally, and cosmetically. This product is cold-pressed, gluten-free, and of course vegan and cruelty-free as well.
💧 How I Use It 💧
I love using my 5 AM Oil to cap off my nightly face routine. After cleansing, exfoliating and then toning my skin, I take a couple of drops of this product and work it into my trouble spots on my face. I like applying it to my acne because its anti-inflammatory properties have proven to help clear up my skin.
🎁 Giveaway & Discount Code 🎁
5 AM has been awesome enough to partner with me to hold several giveaways for my readers. We will be giving away their Beyond Luxury Face & Body Oils (as featured in this post). They have also been generous enough to provide a discount code for readers of Mind Over Mango. Use code MINDOVERMANGO15 for 15% off any purchase at checkout!
💦 3.) Remilia Hair 💦
I won’t go too in-depth about this product in this article, as you can read my full review with more information about the benefits and my usage of Remilia Hair on my previous blog post. However, as a quick overview, this product is a plant-based hair serum that has many benefits. I use this oil in a different way than beautifood’s, so be sure to check out that blog post to read more about it. Oh, and you can save up to 15% off on Amazon right now!

💦 4.) CBD Oil 💦
I’ve been a longtime fan of using CBD, some of my go-to brands being PureKana and Charlotte’s Web. CBD has many proven benefits – way more than I could ever list. This oil can be used for anxiety, pain (both chronic and minute), skin conditions, and various neuro disorders as well! CBD products come in a variety of flavors (and forms), so you can always test out which ones are best for you.
💧 How I Use It 💧
I predominately use CBD Oil for two things: anxiety and pain. I’ve previously touched base on my struggles with endometriosis here on Mind Over Mango, and I swear by using these products to help relieve my pain. I often choose to use CBD gummies for this purpose and use CBD Oil for anxiety. I sometimes suffer from panic attacks as a result of my anxiety, so I take two full droppers of oil under my tongue and allow it to absorb into my system when a panic attack ensues.

💦 5.) Midori Family 💦
Another company with whom I recently partnered with is Midori Family, whose stretch mark and face and body oil have greatly benefited my skin. First, read more about their oils and other organic products on this blog post. Use my code MINDMANGO10 for 10% off your entire order at checkout!

💦 Final Thoughts 💦
All of these oils have proven to have their own benefits for me, and have fit into my life in their own ways. I hope that my guide to my favorite health and beauty oils will help inspire you to kickstart your 2019 on a high note. As I continue to explore more myself, 2019 is sure to bring an updated post about my newest finds in this marketplace.
Thanks as always for checking out my blog post here on Mind Over Mango. Thank you as well to the companies who have allowed me to test out their products to give my honest review!
