A hard-to-find product at an excellent price
If you like hibiscus-based teas, which tend to be expensive, you might enjoy trying these organic hibiscus flowers to make your own. Although I prowl the aisles of health food stores and cooperatives every week, I have never seen them available. With this giant bag in your pantry, you can throw handfuls into your teakettle. There are studies that have shown that drinking hibiscus beverages can lower blood pressure, which prompted me to make this purchase. Frontier's line of products is HUGE. They are organic and you can save yourself a ton of money buying their bulk-packaged foods.
Works simply perfectly
I ordered this recently to make it easier to whip up a daily meal replacement, and I think I might buy a few more. It is the simplest design, but the wire ball really whips things up in a hurry. The lid and snap cap are very snug, so there are no leaks. I can easily take it along when I travel and can make my breakfasts anywhere. Just about anything you use a whisk for in the kitchen can go right into one of these, e.g., eggs, batters, etc. Other reviewers have recommended putting the liquid in first and I try to remember to do that. One day I forgot, but it still worked.
Excellent product from a Bay Area Green Business
I decided to try this conditioner after tinting my hair for the very first time earlier this year. It is rich and concentrated yet does not weigh my hair down in any way, leaving it soft and manageable. It is free of all of the usual chemicals (e.g., parabens, petrochemicals, GMOs, etc.). I first purchased it at Whole Foods for an outrageous $19-20, so I was pleased to find it at a much more affordable price at iHerb, enabling me to use it regularly.
Very effective, but makes a little mess
I love how this makes my skin feel and look. As the package states, "your skin feels and looks smooth and supple." The key to this is tiny beeswax pearls. As you might think, beeswax in your shower is going to leave your tub or shower stall slick. You also do not want to use this in the bathtub because the pearls go to the bottom of the tub and you'll find them all over you when you towel off. With this minor annoyance, it is a nice product (like all of Weleda), made of natural ingredients, and has a pleasant, light, citrusy fragrance.
Obtains quick results
I began replacing my breakfasts with Almased on six of the past eight days and already dropped a pound. I have been on a diet plateau for many weeks after working off 26 pounds, so this is progress. I will continue with this plan to get the last five pounds off. I was pleasantly surprised by the taste, which is mild, and also how it satisfies my appetite, including taking me through my mid-day aerobics. I began adding a tablespoon of non-GMO lecithin powder (also available at iHerb) as a boost and they mix together well. The lecithin will make a creamier drink.
Works well on thin enamel
Several of my teeth have become very sensitive where the enamel has worn thin, but I find I can use this product on them without hesitation. It has a pleasant mild flavor and the soft gel rinses easily. It does not contain either fluoride or sodium lauryl sulfate, neither of which I want in my mouth.
The quick, low-cal hunger fix without the junk
I know that eating refined flours is not the best idea, but sometimes a steaming bowl of noodles is what you need. Fat calories are only 10 percent, and there is no junk in this product. I always keep some on the shelf. A jolt of tamari helps the flavor.
Kind of anemic

Organic macaroni and cheese is one of my occasional junk foods. I generally like all of Back to Nature's products and buy many of them. I found that Annie's Organic mac & cheese box mix had the more "junky" and "orange" flavor that I crave than this product, though. Caveat: I made it with skim milk and no butter.

I experienced hormonal abnormalities taking this product. Since it is not organic and does not state that it is non-GMO, it is therefore made from the genetically modified soybeans that flood the market. Another reviewer, below, asked if there is another kind of lecithin. Living Tree Community Foods in Berkeley produces an organic, powdered rice lecithin. You can order their products on-line or through their catalog, www.livingtreecommunity.com/. Their products are of the highest quality and are carefully sourced. They are all organic.
will not purchase again

This product does not moisturize lips (at all) and although it appears garnet in color, turned unappealingly orange-y when applied. An unfortunate waste of money.
