Review/Giveaway: Surprise Ride – A Monthly Box of Adventure – Great for Homeschool too

Join the Ride!

Gardening/Green Thumb

Every month, receive a box of materials to do fun hands-on projects. Boxes cover a surprise theme ranging from art and science to food and geography! Perfect for ages 6-11.Surprise ride

All the supplies needed to complete projects that explore the month’s theme. A book, a snack, or other fun surprises to go along with the ride. Our famous Surprise Ride booklet with lessons on the theme, interesting facts, and ways to continue the exploration.

Boy were my kids so excited to see the orange & blue box arrive that said Surprise Ride, just by looking at the box they knew it was something fun for them, because the box just yell fun! So we opened it to explore & as I looked at what it contained & right away I could see it is a Gardening/Green Thumb theme & that is so perfect for us. I will wait till spring for a surpriseridefew of the activities but others we will be using right away in homeschooling so this box fits in great as part of my teaching.

Surprise ride does a different theme every month so if you order the theme will be different, but be assured the boxes is full of activities. Just in our 1 box it contained all the items needed to make a plant buddy & to design a garden windladybug-chime. But thats not all the box includes a snack, a Solar powered insect (we got a lady bug & sat it on the dash of the car), gardening spray bottle, organic mixed herb seed packet, &  the Ace Ludwig bug detective book that my 8-year-old son has about worn out already.

The one & only drawback I can find with this kit is I have 3 kids in the age range to use it, so I need 3 kits :) but we are making do with 1 kit & it is a good thing SRmy kids work well together, even the 13-year-old has been excitedly helping & doing (so yes 4 kids using 1 box).

I really like that surprise ride is geared towards parents learning with their kids & it is fun. I know that Surprise is not marketed towards homeschool but to do the monthly subscription would be great for homeschool parents. And right now if you go to the Surprise Ride website you can use a coupon to save $5 on a new subscription.

I recommend Surprise ride to both Homeschool parents & even parents of kids in school, for some great learning fun.windchime

Review: Oleum Natural Glow – All Natural Premium Cleansing Oil for all Skin Types

Oleum Natural Glow

Oleum is the Latin word for oil.

Oleum Natural Glow an all natural premium cleansing oil used for the oil cleansing method.

oleum

Avoid Toxins, have a toxic free 2014 & beyond.

The concept of cleansing with oil might seem strange to some especially if you have oily skin. It is not a new idea though & as Oleum states on their page like dissolves like is so true & is basically it in a nutshell. No matter your skin type Oleum has an oil for you & you will be amazed how gentle & yet effective these oils are for cleansing & leaving skin looking & feeling amazing & healthy.

When the Oleum Natural Glow arrived I upended it up to smell it & to rub some between my fingers & to my joy I smelled jasmine oil. Oh how I love jasmine oil it brings back happy memories & is by far one of my favorite skin care & massage oil scents & it had been far to long since I have used it.oleum logo

That evening I was excited to try Oleum for the first time, I applied it to my face & massaged into skin in circles with my fingers, (I do not wear make-up often but if I did Oleum’s directions state you do not need to remove make-up before cleansing because the oil will do that for you). I used a microfiber dish towel & soaked it in hot water from my faucet, after wringing it out just a bit & covered my face with it allowing it to open my pores for 30 seconds. While the warm cloth was still on my face I felt like I was at a spa feeling the oil on my skin, the warmth & that amazing scent of jasmine. After the 30 seconds I simply used that hand towel to wipe off the oil leaving my skin feeling renewed & fresh & me more relaxed & stress free.

I have many times on this blog warned of using toxins in your home & most importantly not using products that contain toxins on your skin or in your beauty products. One of the things I loved most when checking out Oleum Natural Glow was their products are free of toxins & they warn against using products that contain thoxins. Oleum offer a full line of all natural skin care using oils, they tell you what is in each oil they offer,there are no secret added ingredients, no surprises after you buy. With Oleum Natural Glow you know exactly what you are buying & exactly what you are putting on your face.

My results from using Oleum have been great, my skin looks visibly more hydrated & evenly moisturized instead of oily in spots, dry in spots & getting older. My skin has a healthy younger looking glow & my pores are less noticeable, literally my skin looks & feels more alive. I rubbed it on my hands each time because after all I already had it on my hands & my hands look great, but what I have noticed most about my hands is how healthy my cuticles look & my nails look amazing.

I am happy to be recommending Oleum Natural Glow for all skin types.

Healthy lemonade Variation Recipes Kids love – Using Bellemain Lemon Press

 Lemonade can be tasty & healthy.

back nfr6k

A refreshing drink you can make anytime of the year that kids love & you can change it up to make it just the way you want. 

Lemons & Limes: If you read my blog post here on lemons & limes you can see how healthy they are & why using these fresh fruits can be a great boost to the immune system. Limes can be used with lemonlemons or instead of lemons in any of the below recipes. Use the Bellemain stainless steel lemon press after cutting lemons (or limes) in half to make sure to get every drop without waste

Sweeteners: To keep these drinks healthier use natural sweeteners such as raw local honey, yacon syrup, pure maple syrup, molasses, sucanat or whole unbleached sugar.

Amounts: Liquid sweeteners such as the honey, yacon, syrup & molasses you would add 1/4 to 1/2 cup to any of the recipes. Dry sweeteners such as the sucanat & whole unbleached sugar add 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup for any of the recipes.

Water: Yes water is very important, do not use chlorinated water, jugged drinking water or fluoridated water. Use pure water, alkaline water, filtered water, reverse osmosis water, distilled water or spring water.

Recipes: All the below recipes are for a gallon of finished drink, to get the exact taste you prefer try adding less of the ingredients first & adding more as needed until you get the taste you want. Some like the drinks stronger than others, some like them sweeter than others.

Options: I mention a few in the recipes below but adding extras for flavor & health to lemonade can give you so many taste options. Such as slices of fresh ginger, chunks of fresh or frozen cut up watermelon, adding frozen halved grapes or frozen berries or cranberries, slices of kiwi, fresh mint leaves, fresh brewed & chilled teas like peppermint, green tea, orange, etc. Adding slices of oranges, grapefruit, lemon or lime also add flavor & look great. We also sometimes add fresh squeezed juices such as orange, cherry or watermelon.

Other ideas: You can make up this lemonade & freeze it to make healthy pops, you can add it to smoothies. You can also add 1 ounce colloidal silver to keep it fresh longer especially if taking to a picnic etc. Some people also like to add some sole water to their cup of lemonade. I also like to sometimes add 1/2 tbsp of coconut water vinegar or Bragg Apple cider vinegar to my glass of cold lemonade.

Kids: My kids love to make healthy drinks like lemonade when company is coming, it can be fun, educational & healthy for them. So say come on kids! My kids totally love these recipes & love getting to use the lemon press.

Lemonade basic recipe:

  • Juice of about 5 or 6 fresh squeezed lemons using the Bellemain lemon press (around 1 cup lemon juice)
  • Sweetener (see above)
  • Water

Directions: Step #1 – Add 2 cups of water in a saucepan over med heat stir in sweetener & heat till mixed in or dissolved, this is your sugar water let sit. Step #2 – In your gallon jug add your fresh juice and about 4 cups of water & stir. Step #3 – Add the sugar water & stir. Step #4 – Now fill the jug up the rest of the way with water or water & ice.

Variations:

Probiotic Lemonade: 

During step #3 add 1/2 cup of whey you have saved or water kefir or kombucha tea

Ginger Lemonade: 

During step #2 add 1/2 cup of fresh peeled & cut or grated ginger (about 1/4 cup), make sure to use the spoon to hit the ginger to release the juices, mint leaves also pair well with this.

 Tea & Lemonade: 

During Step #2 add 1 or 2 cups of fresh brewed & chilled tea of choice, most prefer green tea for the health benefits.

Bellemain Stainless Steel Lemon Squeezer with Silicone Handles.

Review

Premium Quality Lemon Juicer and Lime Juicer- The Best Lemon Press and Most Comfortable.

Juices lemons and limes to the last drop.

I found this lemon press easy to use & it really does get every drop of juice. Comfortable handles make the job much better to do. It is sturdy stainless steel & heavy without being to heavy. It feels like a lemon pressquality tool when you hold it in your hands.

It is easy to clean & is small enough to store in your utensil drawer, it is also dishwasher safe.  This press seriously makes the job of squeezing lemons & limes an easy job. Use the lemon press to have fresh juice for cooking fish, for salads, for lemonade, for lemon water, for using in DIY cleaning, DIY hair care, DIY skin care & more.

To buy your own Bellemain stainless steel lemon press on Amazon click here.

Strong, safe and super-efficient, the Bellemain Stainless Steel Lemon Press is also easy to use, clean and store … proving that the simplest designs are simply the best.

Juices Lemons and Limes to the Last Drop
With one powerful plier motion, the nesting bowls squeeze every bit of juice from your lemon or lime; unlike reamers which force you to dig around and around, and still not get it all. The juice falls straight down onto your food, instead of squirting sideways. And even the tiniest seeds and bits of pith are trapped in the bowl.

Virgin gold label coconut oil is wet milled: A study published in Food and Function, of the Royal Society of Chemistry, shows once again that the highest amounts of antioxidants in coconut oil are found in virgin coconut oils produced by the wet-milling process. The study was conducted in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Kerala in India. The study compared a traditionally made virgin coconut oil with refined coconut oil, olive oil, and sunflower oil for effects on antioxidant status. The results revealed that virgin coconut oil improved the antioxidant status compared to other three oil-fed groups. They observed increased activities of catalase, superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase in the liver, heart, and kidneys. Virgin coconut oil also prevented oxidative stress, indicated by the decreased formation of lipid peroxidation and protein oxidation. This is perhaps the most exhaustive study to date examining the antioxidant activities of traditional, wet-milled virgin coconut oils. Read more:

Even more uses for Tea Tree oil – Using Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil is a favorite in my home & if you have been reading my blog you know we use it in many DIY recipes & ideas.

One of the most versatile essential oils. Naturally fight Acne, Toenail Fungus, Lice, Yeast Infections, Skin Tags, Cold Sores, Dandruff, Ringworm, Fleas, Warts, Psoriasis, and More.

In my house Tea Tree oil is one of those products that gets used daily for something or another. Not only is Tea Tree oil on my list of the top 6 essential oils I recommend when getting started, It is #1 on that list & is a great place for those just starting out using essential oils or just getting into DIY to get started.

The Many uses of Tea Tree Oil.

In another blog post I shared recipes using tea tree oil for everything from cleaning to skin care & in between, & if you cruise around my blog any length of time you will find many other uses & recipes for tea tree oil. But so many of you asked for more. The brand of Tea Tree oil I will be using & reviewing today is Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil.Tea Tree Oil

Let me tell you right now one of my absolute favorite uses for tea tree oil is to put about 10 drops or so of Argan oil (or Jojoba oil) in the palm of my hand, add 2 to 3 drops of tea tree oil & rub into my hands, finger nails, feet, face or wherever & massage in, sometimes I also add a drop or 2 of eucalyptus essential oil as the 2 together are an amazing combo. This mixture can be used for rubbing on forehead & temples for headaches & migraines, on dry skin, rashes, skin issues, pimples, blackheads, acne, boils, burns, sinus issues, colds (rubbed on chest), sore throat (rubbed on throat), sore feet, sore muscles, on & on.

Many do use tea tree oil straight, it is a bit of a dryer oil so adding it to a carrier oil works best for most & some can not tolerate it straight so again a carrier oil such as argan, jojoba, coconut, emu, rosehip, sweet almond, wheat germ etc would work great for mixing with tea tree oil. Tea Tree oil is best used on skin, massaged in etc, but can also be used in oral care & really is amazing for the health of gums & for oral issues.

Indications
Contemporary Uses: Tea Tree Essential Oil is best known as a very powerful immune stimulant. It can help to fight all three categories of infectious organisms (bacteria, fungi, and viruses), and there is evidence that Tea Tree Oil massages prior to an operation may help to fortify the body and reduce post-operative shock. Used in vapor therapy, Tea Tree Oil can help with colds, measles, sinusitis and viral infections. For skin and hair, Tea Tree has been used to combat acne, oily skin, head lice, dandruff, toenail fungus, yeast infections, skin tags, cold sores, dandruff, and ringworm.

Here are a list of just a few more of the ways we use tea tree oil:

  • On Cuts, Scratches, wounds
  • Burns, sunburns
  • Lice
  • For fleas, ants & other bugs/pest control (& to sooth the bites & stings to)
  • For animals (skin care)
  • hair care (such as dandruff)

  • Deodorant (DIY)

Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil:

I really like the purity & quality of the Apothecary Extracts tea tree oil, it has endless uses as you have seen. Many do not like the scent of tea tree oil & prefer to combine it with other essential oils like eucalyptus, lemon or lavender, me personally I love the scent & the coolness of tea tree oil & this Apothecary Extracts brand has that very natural scent of tea tree oil I have come to expect from quality brands. Some brands kinda smell rancid & off & so to me the smell is important. This brand also feels like a quality brand should, when you rub it between your fingers it does not feel thick or gooey, rather it feels like the dry oil it should be & absorbs in fast.

I am loving the large size of the bottle as well, we use a lot of tea tree oil & I really do hate to run out so a larger bottle is a must but it is harder to find quality brands that are affordable in larger bottles. So I am happy to have been sent the Apothecary Extracts tea tree oil for my honest review & to say yes I love it. And you will love it to.

Ingredients
The Australian standards require that the oil of Melaleuca alternifolia must be composed of less than 15 cineole and over 30 terpinen-4-ol. You can request copies of our Gas Chromatography reports which show that Apothecary Extracts’ Tea Tree Oil is not only compliant with these regulations but surpasses them. Apothecary Extracts is composed of less than 5 cineole and over 35 terpinen-4-ol which qualifies for Pharmaceutical Grade as established by the Australian Tea Tree Oil Industry Association. It is 100% pure and unadulterated. No fillers, additives, bases or carriers added.
