 Florihana brand essential oils 

essential oils 2

I get asked a lot by those just starting out what 6 essential oils I recommend the most for the most uses & how we use them, so I hope this blog post clears up that these questions. Essential oils can cost a bit at first but with proper use one bottle can last you a year, I buy them once a year. They are listed by the most used, so if you can only afford 3 I recommend the first 3, But the top 4 we could not live without I swear.

Some of our most used essential oils in our home: Eucalyptus, Lemon (or other citrus), Lavender, Peppermint, Tea tree oil & Lemongrass we do use others but these are the ones we use the most & they are our favorites.

I carry essential oil mixtures in my purse, check out what I carry here

Melaleuca oil (Tea tree oil) is an amazing essential oil, very powerful natural germ fighter, great for cleaning, skin, hair, deodorant & oral care to.
So many do not like the scent though, but Tea tree is one of our families favorite scents, we love long soaking baths with it or to add it to our diffuser or room spray.

#2 Eucalyptus essential oil is not only a favorite in our home it is my favorite essential oil:

Eucalyptus to me is by far the best essential oil, it can lift my mood & get me going, it keeps my lung healthy (damaged lung) & it can totally make my mood better. Plus eucalyptus goes great pared with other essential oils such as Tea tree  (as mentioned above), with Lemon for many uses such as cleaning as I show in this blog post, with Lemongrass  for a great bug deterrent (other essential oil pest control ideas here), with Lavender for a soaking bath or a tingling facial (here), also great mixed with other mints like Peppermint for room deodorizer, cleaning, deterring spiders & to relieve sinus issues & in the best essential oil combo ever Thieves oil blend you can easily make yourself here.

Clean any surface including chrome, stainless steel, mirrors, counter tops, stoves, toilets, sinks, faucets on & on, great for spot cleaning carpet & upholstery as well.

#4 Oh so soothing Lavender & a teen favorite in my home:

Do you need to relax or need a good nights sleep, for many Lavender essential oil is the answer to a much-needed rest, great as a linen spray & a room spray (here). You can also use it on acne or zits as my kids call them & it is great for burns, if you burn yourself grab the lavender essential oil & a box of baking soda & mix them with enough water to make a paste, or simply add some lavender to some aloe gel & apply or add to some water in a spray bottle for burns & sunburns as well. We also love it in cleaners & as was said above we love it mixed in with tea tree oil & eucalyptus for many things including DIY deodorant. Also great used in Pest control to repel mosquitoes and other insects, go here for info. We also use lavender for headaches & migraines.

lavender is very effective at soothing, calming &  revitalizing

#5 Peppermint to breath better & to get rid of spiders too:

Thats right Peppermint causes spiders to run for the hills, so adding some to a spray bottle with water & spray where spiders tend to be, you can also add drops of peppermint to windowsills to keep spiders & mice away, add peppermint to areas where mice come into your home. But peppermint is also great in DIY oral care, in oil pulling, in diffuser to ward off illness & more. You can also mic peppermint with lavender & use it for panic attacks. Peppermint is also great as a kitchen & bathroom scent added to cleaners & as a plus as you clean you are deterring spiders & mice & other creepy guys (see my pest control post here). Also great for headaches. You can also mic peppermint & lavender essential oil for fast ease oof bug bites.

To buy peppermint essential oil go here

#6 Lemongrass the often forgotten essential oil:

Lemongrass is a must in our home for DIY pest control as seen here. Some prefer lemongrass as a perfume I am not into it that way but we do use it plenty. Lemongrass is great in skin care & hair care, great for dandruff & dry skin. But as I said we mainly use it in pest control including keeping mosquitoes & no see ums away. But it is great used as a pain rub too.

Lemongrass : For insect repellent , detox, sedative, promotes lymph flow, circulation, for pain, stomach pain, healingantifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic,dilates blood vessels, for respiratory, sinuses,  infection, high cholesterol, bladder, kidney & digestive health, fluid retention, varicose veins, & more.

Recipes: We mix Lemongrass in a spray bottle with water & use to ward of bugs like mosquitoes.

Pain: You can add lemongrass to oil like raw coconut oil & use on your body over pain, such as headaches, stomach aches, muscle soreness, bruises & more, great for healing things like ligaments, muscles, cartridge & more. It can also be added to a soaking bath or a foot bath.

Review Saavy Pure & Naturals: Body cream – Mango Papaya – Yuzu & Meyer Lemon

Saavy Body Cream

Saavy logo

Mango Papaya body cream & Yuzu & Meyer Lemon body cream

Are you ready to hear about 2 amazing body creams from Saavy Pure & natural? If you are like me you probably have never even heard of products by Saavy, but after trying several of their products in my home I hope to get others to not only know what Saavy sells but to try their great products. Today I will be reviewing 2 of their body creams Mango Papaya & Yuzu & Meyer Lemon & then in a few weeks I will be reviewing their body scrubs & then after that their handcrafted bar soaps, so make sure to stay tuned so you can learn more about these great Saavy products that are Pure & Natural.

Info from Saavy about body creams: 

Picky about creams and lotions? So are we. That’s why we make ours a little bit different. It’s in the details. First, we begin with a veritable “who’s who” of the world’s best moisturizers: Golden Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Aloe Vera, Argan Oil, and Moringa Oil. Then we add the most skin-beneficial herbal extracts Mother Nature has to offer: Willow Bark, Marshmallow, Passionflower, Horsetail and Lady’s Mantle. Last but surely not least, we hand-blend in our enticing scents, always from 100% pure essential oils and plant extracts. It wouldn’t occur to us to add Parabens, Silicones, Polysorbates or Petroleum products of any varieties.

Thick and creamy, yet never heavy or greasy, our Body Creams absorb deeply into your skin instead of sitting on top of it, leaving skin moisturized for up to 24 hours, naturally. The perfect remedy for dry, chapped skin, even helps heal and soothe skin upsets.

Especially recommended for sensitive skin types of all ages. May be used from head to toes, even on your face. Wont’ clog pores.

Luxury with a mission: A thoroughly pampering experience that truly feeds and nourishes your skin.

Review:

Of these 2 body creams if you ask me on any given day either one could be my favorite that day, at first I was like yea the Mango Papaya is totally my favorite, & then I tried the Yuzu & Meyer Lemon & I discovered it was my favorite in a totally new way. so I love them both & think both are amazing & smell amazing.saavy logo 2

Before I tell you a little bit about each body cream let me tell you some of my favorite uses. First & foremost I loved applying to my freshly washed face morning & night, I was my face with baking soda & warm water, then apply Vitamin C serum & after a few minutes I added the Body cream. I also liked applying the body cream to my legs, arms, elbows, my whole body after a shower or bath. I also found it amazing for the dry skin on my husbands feet so I started using it on my feet a couple of times a day. The body cream does not feel heavy on your skin & is not greasy, it absorbs in pretty fast & makes your skin feel amazing, even my fingernails felt great after using the body cream.  Just remember a little goes a long way so you do not need a lot, when used properly this body cream goes on light & feels great.

My teen daughters also love it & they have enjoyed both scents but they do seem to prefer the Yuzu & Meyer Lemon scent & they have looked on the Saavy website under body creams & have their eye on a couple other scents (& products) they would love to try. Check out the other products they are interested in, from my teens to your teens: Jasmine body cream, Lavender & Chamomile body cream, Balancing Shampoo, & the body washes So yes I can without a doubt say these products are “Teen Approved“.

Another great way I found for using the body creams: I liked mixing baking soda & borax (just a pinch each) in my hand with a squirt or 2 of body cream & using it on my wet skin (loved on my face & feet) to gently exfoliate & moisturize, then wash off with warm water, Yea I am using the Saavy body scrubs the same way but I still liked this fast easy way to use the body cream too.

Mango Papaya Body cream:

I totally love both mango & Papaya & have made skin smoothies & face masks at home with both, they are amazing for saavy body cream 1skin, so to have them together in a natural body cream for me is like the ultimate combo. The scent is not to over powering & the result is amazing on your skin.

Info: A tropical holiday for your senses, our delectable Mango & Papaya Body Cream rejuvenates your senses and your skin.  Thick and creamy, yet never heavy or greasy, our Body Cream absorbs deeply into your skin instead of sitting on top of it, leaving skin moisturized for up to 24 hours, naturally.  The perfect remedy for dry, chapped skin, even helps heal and soothe skin upsets.  Especially recommended for sensitive skin types of all ages.  May be used from head to toes, even on your face. Wont’ clog pores.

To order the Mango Papaya Body cream go here

Yuzu & Meyer Lemon Body cream:

OK so I already love using lemon on my skin as it not only is a nice clean fresh scent but it is also a great way to keep skin healthy & glowing, & meyer lemons are like the best for skin, but I had never used yuzu on my skin, it is a Japanese saavy body cream 2grapefruit & have used grapefruit on my skin & grapefruit like lemon is so awesome for skin so having them together in one body cream is a win win for me & my skin. Again the scent is not overpowering it is actually kinda energizing & just like the other body cream it is amazing on your skin.

Info: Awaken and energize your senses with our sumptuous, citrusy blend of Yuzu (aka Japanese Grapefruit) and Meyer Lemon Body Cream.  Thick and creamy, yet never heavy or greasy, our Body Cream absorbs deeply into your skin instead of sitting on top of it, leaving skin moisturized for up to 24 hours, naturally.  The perfect remedy for dry, chapped skin, even helps heal and soothe skin upsets.  Especially recommended for sensitive skin types of all ages.  May be used from head to toes, even on your face. Wont’ clog pores.

Review: Chamberlain’s Leather Milk Water Protectant No. 3 – Great for hunting/work boots & more

Chamberlain’s Leather Milk.

Water Protectant No. 3

What can I say, well lots, this amazing leather milk brought new life to several of my leather sandals & purses & sealed & protected so many leather products making them all look brand new. Chamberlain's Leather Milk

Hunting boots: My husband is a hunter & gets out rain or shine, out in early morning dew & his feet get soaked. So we applied some of the leather milk to his hunting boots & wha la the next day his feet stayed dry. He loved that there was no scent & it was effective. Yea when I first went to mess with his hunting boots he gave me a look like I was treading on thin ice, but after reading the bottle he agreed & let me take care of his boots. Now he is glad he did.

Heavy work boots: My husbands work boots are only a few months old but already looked less than desirable, I applied some leather milk & I love how they looked so much better right away.

Sandals & more: I had some sandals after being worn a lot then stored away were stiff & blah looking, I applied the leather milk & it added new life to my sandals, making them again wearable, conditioned, looking newer & shiny. I had the same thing happen when I tried it on the seats of our vehicle, on a pair of gloves, on several purses & book bags, handbags & more. Once I got started conditioning leather I just kept going & going, loving the result every time.

Light leather: Light colored leather will get darker, this was not an issue for me only because most leater we Chamberlain's Leather Milk Water Protectant No. 3 Reviewowned was darker or I had wished they were darker anyhow.

Review: Facial Mud Mask with Dead Sea Mud by Adovia – Teen Approved

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Adovia Dead Sea Mud Mask – for Acne, Oily Skin, Blackheads, Eczema, Psoriasis.

Adovia logo

Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask – Purifying Natural Facial Mask and Skin Care Treatment for Women, Men and Teens – Face Mask for Acne Treatment, Reduce Blackheads & Pimples, Exfoliator and Deep Facial Cleanser. Works for Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne and Leaves Skin Radiant, Younger Looking & Smooth.

I love using mud masks & Dead Sea mud for my whole body, if you have never used mus product on your skin now is the time to try it & relax & enjoy the benefits. If you have skin issues mud/clay or dead sea mud are on the top of my list to recommend. I had never tried the Adovia Brand & the scent was a tad to strong for me though I love how Adovia Dead Sea Mud Maskamazing my skin felt after the few times I did use it (with no reaction to the smell), I did have to pass this on to my teen daughters to use & they do love it & even though scents tend to bother them they say this scent is great & mild so thankfully the scent issue may not bother most people.

Teen girls & Adovia Dead Sea Mud Mask: My teens daughters really enjoyed using this mask on their face & neck & were commenting about how great their skin felt afterwards & how it really helped pimple & blackhead breakouts drying them up while moisturizing skin & preventing more breakouts. The drawing action of the mud is very relaxing & is very purifying to the skin & leaves your skin feeling smoother, firmer & so soft & healthy with a healthy glow. “Teen Approved

Feet: They also loved using it on their feet & since they like to walk barefoot a lot taking care of the skin on their feet is a must & this Adovia mud mask did wonders for the skin on their feet. They liked it so much my husband had them put it on his feet that have many issues from standing in factory work, he said it refreshed his feet & helped with the pain of issues he had with the skin on his feet.

Boys: And my girls being girls also subjected their younger brothers to facials with this mud mask, no they did not have to tie them down they were willing guinea pigs. The oldest is 12 & has recently started having breakouts & he liked the mud mask other than “the girly smell” his words.

In conclusion: I would so be all over using this all over my body if I was not afraid of the scent, I am tempted to try it a few more times to see if I still do not have a reaction & I may do that soon. The few times I did use it I loved it, maybe Adovia will come out with an unscented version.  It is a natural scent by the way & it is not so overpowering that I had to leave the small area my daughters were using it in. So it is far from an overpowering scent IMHO.

Go here to purchase on Amazon

My Amazon Review:  My skin has felt amazing after every use, great for teens on up.
I have no issues recommending this to my fans & friends.
Such a great product.
Easy to use, apply a thin layer, leave on about 15 minutes & was off, & feel how great your skin feels.
I love the ingredients including dead Sea mud, jojoba, evening primrose oil & olive oil among others, nourish your skin & be healthy.

I was discussing with my friends about what was in my emergency kit when I came across lightload towels & I thought they would make a great addition to any survival kit, emergency disaster supply kit or first aid kit & I am so happy to get to try these towels & to spread the word about them to my fans, family & friends. So friends pay attention because I think you might just want to get some of these towels.

The Only Towels That Are Survival Tools!
-Wickable Fabric so keeps you from freezing in Cold Activities!
-More Absorbent than Cotton and Microfiber!
-Waterproof Packaging so Always have a Clean Dry Cloth in the Outdoors!
-Ultralight-weight and superior for packing into small spaces!

I was sent the 3 pack of hand towels to try & do this review & giveaway for (12X24″30X60CM HAND SIZE), but Lightload makes varying sizes so check them all out. When the 3 pack arrived the towels were in small packs about the size of a 50 cent piece only kinda thicker, very conventional for storing & carrying easily, & I love the packaging is waterproof so no need to replace often. So we proceeded to open one so we could try it out. At first I had a bit of a time getting it unfolded but It took my teen daughter to tell me I was doing it wrong & wha la it was open & ready for use.

The world renowned Lightload Towels are the only towels that are survival tools. Use them as a towel, wash cloth fire starter, first aid supplement, diaper, insulator, static electricity insulator, mask and more. Each piece packs down to 1.5″ in diameter and 5.75″ in girth and .25″ in. width..They’re great for storing in tight spaces like suitcases and small pouches.
They weigh a mere .6oz so you’ll find them helpful where weight is a concern like in travel or backpacking.

Right away I noticed how lightweight the towels were, kinda like those thin paper towels like mechanics use might be the closest comparison without totally being like them. We found light load towels to be very absorbent & able to absorb more fluid & hold it that any ordinary paper towel ever could, all while being thin, lightweight, strong & durable. We even washed & dried it several times, I do not think it would last through to many washes but it is great for 1 or 2 uses & emergency use.

Waterproof packaging covers each piece. Because of this  you’ll always have a clean dry cloth  for good hygiene, personal care and first aid.
The material is 100 percent viscose and made from cellulose(not oil, like microfiber) acts as a sponge and absorbs up to nine times it’s weight in water. They are also very energy efficient needing little energy to carry, wash and dispose of. Add water to the towel or start wiping water off of you to soften and open easier. They’re very comfortable against the skin and are also great for indoor gyms and spas. In caring for the Lightloads hand washing is best.You can reuse them. They last until they don’t.

So I am very happy to tell you about these towels & I hope you will find them as interesting & as useful as I did, I wish I had these towels when my kids were younger, what a lifesaver they would have been so many times. I am also happy to now know about this company & to be able to spread the word, so many of my friends are looking for just this type of product.

This three pack is a great gift and is easily mailed. Colors of the towels are assorted.You golfers can freeze to make a cold towel.
Being great as a game piece too on rainy days,  you can use as a checkerboard piece or puck. Boy Scouts and kid campers love this feature.
Lightload Towels have been written about in many magazines including Climbing Magazine, Bike Magazine and Sailing Magazine.
