The Top 10 Most Popular Ever

The Top 10 Most Popular Ever

The first post ever published on was posted on July 17th 2013. We’ll call that date the birth of Natural Living Ideas – although it took a month for the first visitors to start to trickle onto the blog.

Since that time, currently just three ago, we have come a long way!

We have published over 630 informative articles from some of the finest minds in the natural living community, published thousands of updates on our Facebook page which have been seen by tens of millions of people, sent hundreds of newsletters to tens of thousands of email subscribers and had our articles read over 60 million times!

That means 60 million pages have been loaded in only three short years. That is a pretty incredible feat and is inspiring to know that we are spreading the natural living message far and wide.

On this page, I wanted to take the opportunity to share our ten most popular articles ever (based on number of page views) and also a few of my favorites that slipped under the radar and perhaps didn’t get the popularity they deserved.

So grab a cup of Matcha green tea and get reading…
