I hope my reviews will be helpful in assisting you to choose your products. I'm dealing with overlapping illnesses, so a lot of symptoms to treat. I try to review things that are not listed and hard to figure out online such as packaging type (is that bottle safe glass or is it toxic-plastic?) and contents (does that tea have a staple, string or simply pressed together?). Please keep in mind that I live in Southern California and that arid weather is very different than humid so, things that work for me, such as moisturizers or creams, might be too rich for you. Also skin types differ, I'm both oily and dry currently so I try to indicate all that. On occasion, I'll add humor to my reviews, particularly if I was unhappy (humor heals) and I love to vote Yes on others' helpful reviews. Thank you to those of you who remember to afford me the same courtesy. Welcome to my page and hope you find some fun, helpful or delicious products you hadn't tried before. Be well, everyone.

Excellent for circulation & against wrinkles

Posted on Nov 12, 2012

8 people found the following review helpful

I take this with vitamin E for activation and against leg vein pain & poor circulation. It helps. I take 3 per day. It's also a potent antioxidant that is said to prevent and reverse wrinkles. I'm taking a lot of skin supplements & I've seen a remarkable improvement in the skin of my face.

The Cadillac of B vitamins... and the only 1 I can absorb

Posted on Mar 06, 2013

8 people found the following review helpful

I have malabsorption syndrome caused by candida. I'm basically deficient in all nutrients which is causing tons of life-threatening problems such as internal organ failure etc.. B vitamins, along with magnesium, is the most critical to me to maintain life at this stage. This is the only B vitamin that my system will absorb *some*, so I need to take more than the average person. I really wish they would remove the soy though, I already take sunflower lecithin so this is not needed and is probably GMO. We live in a very toxic world. Unfortunately for me, it's either take this with the GMO frankensoy lecithin or well, you know. Live now and pay later? I still give this 5 stars but you make your decision according to where you're at with what you know.

Excellent soap and a delightful giraffe box!

Posted on Jan 02, 2014

8 people found the following review helpful

I collect giraffes and, after seeing that this was unscented and safe for people with MCS, I bought it mainly for the collectible box. This time, the box you see is exactly what I received! The soap is a dream! I would describe it as a cross between a creamy soap and a glycerine soap. It's light yet creamy. It seems to last longer on the soap dish that my previous favorite, the Grandpa brand which totally dissolves on the dish. This one also truly has no scent at all so very safe for PWMCS. The lather is creamy and thick and feels great on, and the skin is not dried out when toweling off. I haven't tried it on my face, not sure if I will but it's great for the body.

It's actually pretty good

Posted on Jun 19, 2013

8 people found the following review helpful

This is mild dark taste, not bitter and the salt just adds a bit of kick but overall it's sweet. I didn't buy this for years as I didn't want any salt in my chocolate. The almonds are not hurting my very sensitive teeth so far. I might repurchase. 3 stars because it's not organic and not really spectacular like the one iHerb sadly stopped carrying, the ginger candy one.

It's ok

Posted on Dec 04, 2012

8 people found the following review helpful

I didn't find it particularly fragrant nor powerful. I'm not impressed and won't purchase again. I'm glad to read there's many others who find it weak and smells off, it's not just me! It's the product. This smells nothing like the eucalyptus I knew as a kid for sinus steam inhalation. 3 stars for being organic but a disappointing purchase.

CAREFUL! Gave me diabetes symptoms!

Posted on Dec 09, 2013

8 people found the following review helpful

I have been diagnosed with chronic very low potassium and life-threatening hypoglycemia. These pills sent me in diabetes for 2 wks straight, until I figured out what was going on. (I knew it was diabetes because I was diagnosed with steroid-induced diabetes several years ago when put on Cortef). The FDA is right, here, to make these supplements only 3% of the US RDA! This potassium is dangerous! I am giving it 2 stars because when I am severely exhausted it helps with the CFIDS symptoms and makes me stronger but if it's easy to get thrown out of balance with this. I can't even take 2 pills per day! Not sure what is going on. Considering I'm severely low in potassium, I can't imagine what kinds of persons can take this safely. It's a pity because it helps with the debilitating exhaustion but the side effects are way too severe for me. I'm glad I was able to figure out it was this pill causing it, as when I quit it, I went back to balance and thrown again with severe diabetic thirst and discomfort all day yesterday. No good!

Save your money: it does NOT work on 100% cotton!

Posted on Feb 14, 2013

8 people found the following review helpful

And why use a chemical-free detergent unless you also wear chemical-free fabrics!? I'm not sure why anyone would bother with that but if you, too, have MCS and can only wear natural fabrics, save your money: it doesn't do anything at all! I tried it on a dirty white shirt (grayed cuffs as if I'd moped the floor with them, no idea how that happened): didn't work. I tried it on the collar: same thing and I tried it on a small tomato stain: it didn't budge one bit! :-/ I don't know why this thing has 4.5 stars from nearly 500 reviews but here you have my honest review on 100% untreated Pima cotton. I guess the one star can make itself useful: it is completely unscented and caused me no reaction whatsoever... but what good is it!?

Nothing natural, loaded w/toxic ingredients!

Posted on Mar 26, 2010

8 people found the following review helpful

Currently shopping for natural B complex. Happened on this item and I'm utterly shocked: not only is there 0 indication that the B vitamins come from 100% natural, non-GMO, non-synthetic source, the "other ingredients" are highly toxic! Just google each one of them and you will see clearly the dangers & the side effects for: Dicalcium Phosphate, Croscarmellose Sodium, Stearic Acid, Silicon Dioxide, Dextrin, Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide. Unfortunately the magnesium stearate is one that is hard to avoid but the rest on the list are far more toxic! Why buy a supplement that causes migraines & possibly cancer?

Excellent taste, helps me overcome cold & flu, said to be great for thryoid

Posted on Mar 13, 2014

7 people found the following review helpful

This coconut oil tastes great, lots of coconut flavor. I leave at room temp & spread on sprouted bread or put it in the fridge and slice a piece and eat like a candy bar. I used this VCO when I came down with a cold (or flu not sure) and it nuked the symptoms right away. It's also an anti-fungal so if I eat too much I get die-off reaction but this is gentler than anti-candida pills and works just as well or better. VCO is also said to be great for thyroid function &, being a saturated fat, it's also anabolic and lipolytic, meaning it helps burn body fat & build muscle without exercising. (At least it does me, due to muscle memory from back when I used to be a gym rat). 100% natural & organic, nothing added, comes in a glass jar so no plastic leaching into our OEVCO. An all around winner and I love it at room temperature, or cold and hard small bite size pieces after refrigeration: it reminds me of the inside of an Almond Joy bar!

NOT VEGAN: comes from sheep's lanolin!

Posted on Jan 25, 2010

7 people found the following review helpful

Editing my review: just got off the phone with HO and they told me that this vitamin comes from sheep's wool! 2 free samples of this D sold me on this D: I ordered a bottle because it's an excellent vitamin D (my Dr. said I was very deficient) and it protects against colds & (swine) flu. It's best to take 1 pill x4/day. If taking too much of any D at once, it is too strong a diuretic. Best to split it up during the day, all day protection that way.

Promotes fat loss fast

Posted on Oct 29, 2012

7 people found the following review helpful

L-Carnitine is a top of the line amino-like product which works fast to melt body fat, however a minimum of exercise is required for this to work, whether it be walking fast or simply lifting heavy stuff around the house. I also take this for circulation problems, particularly to the brain and arms. I went from 500mg a day to 2g (from 1 pill to 4 per day) and I see better results all-around at 4 pills per day. Always safest to start slow to gauge results and potential reactions. No side effects for me at either dosage. Thanks to this and several other amino acids, I now have muscle tone again after medical steroid treatment catabolized my muscle tissue everywhere. Always take on empty stomach. This a very good brand.

Excellent toner for oily and dry skin

Posted on Nov 23, 2012

7 people found the following review helpful

This is an amazing toner which I've used for a while but hadn't gotten it thru here previously. I just didn't know this size bottle was this huge! Wow! On top of that, there is a plastic reducer inside which makes the hole very small so as not to waste liquid. Fantastic! That right there speaks volumes of a company who cares about their customers being happy rather than profit. I have combo oily/dry skin at the same time but, luckily, I live in arid climate so my oiliness only manifests when our weather gets weird and humid. This cuts thru the grease nicely yet gently. Also it does not irritate nor dry out my skin which is always dry whether my skin acts oily or not. This has no glycerin to make my skin feel sticky. Just pure organic ingredients by a great company with a very ethical owner. I'm hoping it can help shrink my pores which have sadly enlarged again due to the recent monsoon humidity we had just this week! Will update if it works. It's made in France, somewhere near Grasse where the most expensive French perfumes are made and where some of the most outstanding perfume ingredients/flowers are grown. By the way, this is a glass bottle! Kudos to L'Uvalla for that as well!
