I've been an iHerb customer for roughly 8-9 years and I can't say enough good things. I live in Ohio and there is a well known health food store in the city that doesn't hold a candle to iHerb's prices and availability, not to mention fast and free shipping! Most of the products I purchase are for depression, sleep problems, and general good health. I'm a true aromatherapy junkie and I LOVE essential oils. One of my favorite blends follows: 12 drops frankincense (Boswellia sacra), 11 drops vetiver (Vetiveria zizanioides), 7 drops sandalwood (Santalum spicatum), and 1 drop patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) in a base of jojoba oil (about 1/4 oz) I put a couple drops on my palms,rub them together and inhale. I love it! Best to you on your journey and Blessed Be!

This has worked well for anxiety and insomnia

Purchased at iHerb

I had insomnia for 15 years due to fibromyalgia and also have a severe anxiety disorder from PTSD. I discovered GABA when I was researching how Valium (which I was taking) worked. I have taken GABA now for nearly 2 years now and it WORKS. It has fixed my insomnia problem and has calmed me down considerably. I only take it at night because it does make me very sleepy (for me, that's the point.) It does not appear to have any side effects, except for an occasional brief tingling when I take it on an empty stomach. It does not give me a "hangover" the next day. My only problems have been when I tried to stop taking it cold turkey - my anxiety came back. The other problem has been when I've taken it and then tried to stay awake. Obviously, mixing with alcohol, drugs, benadryl or any other depressant are not good and are not necessary. I would highly recommend this product. It took about 2-3 weeks to get the full effect, but it did help from the start.

Peaceful

I didn't expect to like this, but I bought it since it was on special and I wanted to try it. I didn't think peppermint and patchouli would work together, but I was wrong. The predominant smell is peppermint, but it blends well with the other ingredients. I use it in the afternoon at work and everyone likes it. It calms me down and relaxes me without making me sleepy (probably a good idea not to be sleepy at work!) When I run out, I'll buy more and I LOVE iHerb... great prices, availability, and fast shipping!

Excellent - worked for me!

I had heartburn problems for about 6 months now and tried everything to stop it. It got so bad I went on Prilosec for a while just so I could sleep. I didn't want to live on drugs, so I stopped taking it, and the heartburn came back. I ordered this Reflux Away product with very little faith that it would work, but it did. The first time I took it, it took about 40 minutes to work, but the heartburn stopped and did not come back that night. I continued to take it whenever my heartburn started and it controlled it. Last night I ate a fair amount of salsa - something I could not dream of doing a month ago - and had only a slight problem. I took the Reflux Away and the problem stopped. I had no reflux problems even when I went to sleep. Time will tell whether or not it will make my hearburn go away for good, but for now, I'm happy and impressed with the results.

Good reaction

Purchased at iHerb

I had a strange but good reaction to this product. I started taking it for weight control. But, instead it helped my fibromyalgia pain. After 3 weeks of taking it, my pain was gone. I have had fibro for 8 years and it is annoying (but not as severe as I've heard for others) so I don't know if these results are typical, but it worked for me.

Helps me with gallbladder pain and insomnia

Posted on Nov 25, 2011

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I bought this because I read somewhere that magnesium chloride helps dissolve gallstones. I've been living with gallbladder pain for over 4 years and tried EVERYTHING, but nothing helped with the pain as much as this has. I have no idea if it's doing anything about the stones, but frankly, I don't care at this point. I'm just happy to be out of constant pain. As an added bonus, I sleep more deeply, am more relaxed in general, and have not had as many problems with leg cramps and fibro. I love it! And, as always, shipping with IHerb is fast.

Great results

Purchased at iHerb

I have had problems with hypoglycemia and sugar/carb processing for years. This is one of the few products that seems to be able to tell my body how to handle carbs and sugars, something I can't seem to do on my own. It also does not make me sick to my stomach as other similar products have. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is dealing with low sugar or an inability to process sugars correctly.

Great recovery from a car accident

Posted on Dec 11, 2006

I bought this stuff because I have fibromyalgia and I was willing to try ANYTHING. It didn't do anything for my fibro, however, I was in a fairly serious car accident that left me bruised and beaten up badly. I started taking it and within 24 hours, my pain was decreasing. Within 48 hours, I was moving nearly freely and was off pain drugs. By the time 3 days had past, I only had a minor backache. At the end of 4 days, I would have never known I'd been in the accident. This was remarkable recovery for me. The previous accident I was in (which was not nearly as serious) took a month to recover from. Seeing as I have fibro, it normally takes me forever to rid myself of pain, especially from injuries. My body is so slow to heal, so this stuff just blew my mind away when it worked so fast. I would definetly have some on hand for injuries and sports recovery. Great stuff for the price and beats the heck out of taking drugs to mask the pain.

Does not upset my stomach

Posted on Oct 25, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

Perhaps it is just me, but generally vitamin B complex formulas make me very nauseated to the point of feeling as if I may throw up. This is the only brand that does not do that. I've taken it for years and I believe my mood and energy levels have benefited; I can tell a difference when I do not take it.

This works for me

Posted on Jul 29, 2009

Purchased at iHerb

I have tried various natural deodorants and this one really works. It has no smell, is not sticky, and has not stained any of my clothing. There are no chemicals and I like that. It does take a while to dry (minute or 2) and you do need to use every day. Put on after a shower - it is much less effective if you try to put it on smelly or sweaty skin. I have also had the best effect when I used it every day (I had been experimenting with others on the "off" days). This is NOT an antiperspirant. You WILL still sweat (which is natural, by the way... if we weren't supposed to perspire, we wouldn't!) But, you won't stink.

Very grounding

Posted on Mar 24, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

I first smelled patchouli in a store and through it smelled like wart remover. (It so happens it was this brand, too.) I'd put some on my wrist and something kept making me sniff... and sniff... and sniff. By the time I got across the store, I couldn't get enough of it. I don't know what caused my initial reaction, but WOW, I LOVE this stuff! I've since ordered two bottles from iHerb. One is in use, one is "sitting" since patchouli is one of the few oils that can improve with age. I mix it about 50/50 with vetiver and wear it every day. It draws a lot of compliments. I will certainly be ordering this again and again. I also ordered the NOW version of the same oil and it was good, but it smelled "greener". I still like it, but I have it resting in the closet for a couple years. This Aura Cacia brand smells nicely aged to me. One thing to be careful with is not to overuse. The best description I can give is "stupefying", which is exactly how I felt when I inhaled too much for too long.
