trying to outsmart nature - it's just not worth it

Posted on Nov 21, 2012

2 people found the following review helpful

I'm sure if you want Xylitol this item is fine; however I found when I consumed a lot of it, it greatly upset my normal intestinal flora (as it has an antibacterial effect, likely it was killing off the good things in my gut) and it has taken a long time, several weeks, getting back to normal. I won't be able to finish this bag nor will I let my husband consume it after this experiment on myself. Also, it is NOT very sweet, so you have to use a lot of it to get a decent effect; and at this price per pound it is just not worth it. Likely I will go back to regular sugar for baking and use either stevia or sugar for my coffee (price of xylitol makes organic sugar prices look like a bargain). Reading up on cooking sugar free, you will learn that it is the physical characteristics of sugar, not just the sweetness, that are important in baked goods, especially cookies and such that have a large percentage of sugar in them. Xylitol works similarly to sugar in this way because it has the same body and texture and you can bake with it, but with a lower sweetness value you may have to use more or supplement it with other sweeteners, and with a questionable effect on one's flora as well as severe (usually fatal) toxicity to dogs, it has a lot of drawbacks, in addition to the high cost. I know we all try to outsmart nature by using artificial or alternate sweeteners, but doing this usually comes back to bite us in the rear with unintended and dangerous consequences. Stick to real sugar, and as with all things, use it in moderation (it is helpful to increase fiber and protein in baked goods to make them more satisfying while also blunting the glycemic effect of the sugar). And in the end, nothing beats good old willpower for losing weight. Dad always said, everything has zero calories, until you eat it.

very thick, perhaps irritating at full strength

First, note that the consistency of pure vitamin E is VERY thick, it pours very slowly and can be difficult to spread on the skin. I added it to some moisturizers I have, seems to be fine that way, but when I put it by itself on my skin overnight I wake up with a swollen face, so I think perhaps it is too strong to use straight by itself and is irritating by facial skin somehow. Also, because of the consistency, I would rather dilute it at least by half with another oil for ease of application. The price of this one is very good, but I won't buy again and will look for 1/2 strength.

good price, not good quality

This oil is a large size. I added some to my cleaning supplies, but my husband hates the smell of it, says it smells bad. The smell is NOT clean, clear orange. I think they harvested it from oranges that were not optimally fresh. Will not buy again, perhaps a different brand will be of a better quality. I will probably use the rest to polish furniture but not for any other use. However, Now brand Lemon oil is excellent and smells great.

Not so Lemony

Those of you who have haven't tried Bronner's soaps should know, these are very powerful soaps that rinse super clean very quickly. They are actually too harsh for skin, I find that this bar leaves my skin dry, so I would not really recommend it for anyone who lives in a dry climate or has dry skin. Maybe really dirty people and teenagers would be ok, this soap will for sure get you super clean, but it is too harsh in general (stipping ALL oils) and burns mucus membranes (genital area = Ow). Now I just use it for underarms and use other soaps for everywhere else. The lemon smell is also not very strong, it is only detectable if you stick it up to your nose, otherwise you can't tell it's lemon. I would say that this soap is most useful for hand-washing garments or such, if you really need it in solid form.

nice stuff, has not make me break out as far as I can tell (but maybe not good to use around the eyes). I like to add some to my toner and moisturizers also.

I had not used a loofah before so was impressed by how smooth it made my skin without being too harsh with scrubbing. Will continue to use it.

Nice soap, smell is not strong

I bought this for the pine scent but it does not smell strongly at all, so I will probably not buy again due to the high price. But, it is a good quality soap, and the natural fiber box contains flower seeds, so you can plant the box and grow flowers from it if you want. Also, the oatmeal fiber in this soap is sharp and hard so it is rather scratchy after consistent use, probably too scratchy.

full-sized, but made in china :/

full-sized, solid but light-weight, and somewhat flexible, they seem to be perfectly fine as equivalents to plastic utensils. but they are made in china; it would be nice to find a source of disposable utenstils made in USA imo. But if you need some disposable utensils these are good.

Love this stuff; for feet and rashes

Posted on Jan 26, 2012

has a mild smell, and is a really excellent moisturizer like all the Nature's gate ones. I'm also using it on my face under my sunscreen and it works great, does not make me break out. Also using on my feet every day and makes them very soft (and the tea tree oil will fight fungus or other infections). Also good for helping rashes to heal. this brand is the best moisturizers I've tried so far, and great prices too. I consider this specific product a staple and have ordered several.

Great stuff

The description says this has a scent but I can't smell it at all, to me it is unscented. This is really nice stuff, I'm using it every day all over since I got it, the texture is thick so it's a bit tough to smooth it on the skin but as soon as it is warmed by your skin it changes to an oil, but is not sticky. makes the skin really smooth and moisturizes well, if you don't soap the area directly in the shower it will continue to keep the skin very soft, smooth, and moisturized even after showering. Good value in this package and the quality of the product seems to be high. I plan to buy more again.

packets are paper. dissolves fast. nice that it is mixed with xylitol, but it seems not sweet enough for my coffee/cocoa so I have to use two packets, which makes it a bit expensive so I probably won't buy again.
