Hi there!

New to iHerb? Use coupon code TEP756 for up to $10.00 off your first order.


I'm in my early 30s, but I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at 12 years old so I've been struggling with related issues for a very long time. Conventional medicine never helped very much, but when I discovered natural medicine and therapeutic foods in 2004, I slowly began to recover and find relief from the endless migraines, chronic pain, hormone imbalances, and mood swings. I'm still on this journey to better health, but I love sharing my experiences with others along the way. I'd love if you used my referral code TEP756 to place an order -- you will get $5 or $10 off your order, and it will help me try more products too. ;)

Rich, delicious, fruit-filled preserves

This is a truly superior product at an amazing price. I'm not even a big preserves/jelly/jam eater, but this stuff is so tasty that I crave it on my toast, English muffins, mixed with fruit to make a compote for waffles... yum! IMHO, the fruit flavors are so rich and sweet that you just need a touch on your food, which makes the jar last longer than other preserves. It's chunky but it's still easy to spread right out of the fridge. I bet this would be amazing paired with something savory, like a sharp cheese & hearty crackers, or with a pork tenderloin roast (perhaps diluted to use as a glaze, or just served on the side as a sweet topping)... really, you've got to try this stuff!

My staple aloe! My skin and my gut loves it.

I always keep a jug of George's on hand. I love this stuff -- best aloe I've ever tried for topical or internal use! I take it internally upon occasion when I'm having digestive problems but I use it daily in a spray bottle for my sensitive skin. Actually, I have an old George's spray bottle and an old rosewater bottle filled with aloe so I can keep one by my bed upstairs and one in the fridge downstairs. :) I also apply it to my face with a cotton pad as a toner after washing my face. I'm fairly active person, and the sun and wind isn't always kind to me here in California, but George's always soothes my skin and eases any discomfort. It soaks in immediately and doesn't leave a weird residue.

I'm finally going to give up PB!

I disagree with the other commenter that this tastes "nothing" like peanut butter. Sure, straight out of the jar, it wouldn't fool me. But it's certainly much closer to natural peanut butter in texture and flavor than anything else I've tried, especially compared to almond butter. Also, when used in baking, and spread on apples/carrots/celery, I really can't taste much difference. It's creamy, smooth, and delicious... the flavors of the tahini and cashew meld together wonderfully. I've been moderately allergic to peanut butter for most of my life but have never been able to totally give it up because I was so hooked on the delicious peanut-buttery flavor. I've tried all kinds of nut butters and they all disappointed me. This stuff, however, has made me decide to give up peanut butter for good! I know my body will thank me. One other perk -- most nut butters (especially almond butters) get rock-solid after refrigeration, but not this stuff. A quick stir makes it spreadable again. Perfect!

Goes down easy

Really smooth and balanced flavor -- an enjoyable cup from beginning to end! I actually prefer white tea to green tea because they have similar characteristics but the delicate white tea flavor profile is so nice in comparison to the bite of green tea. I also appreciate that this tea is full of large leaves and not all ground up and powdery like many inferior brands. I plan to try more varieties from Just a Leaf based upon this purchase.

When it works... it really works!

With homeopathics, if the symptoms don't match up with the remedy, then it just doesn't work, but when it does -- it's fabulous! My partner had a horrendous migraine on top of prepping for a colonoscopy, so she was miserable. Normally she will take aspirin in combination with other drugs but she isn't allowed to take them before the procedure. I remembered that I had this in the medicine cabinet (it works for some of my migraine and cluster headaches so I keep it on hand) and it's not a blood thinner, so I made her take a couple of them under her tongue. Within half an hour, her headache was gone! She's so relieved.

Great quality candle!

I'm not a big scented candle fan but I'm familiar enough with Aloha Bay's line that I knew they don't use heavy chemical perfumes like most candle companies. I wanted something to burn to cleanse the air and add some warmth to our cold studio space and this candle really fills the bill! This scent is pleasant, noticeable but not intrusive, and makes the place smell homey. Like apple cider or similar. Also, I appreciate that the candle burns cleanly and evenly, without any smoking. I didn't even need to trim the wick. By the way, our small business has had its best month ever, billing-wise, since purchasing this candle, so maybe the candle has mystical qualities after all?! ;) In any case, I'll be happy when they come back in stock so I can buy a second one. And probably some extras for friends!

heaven in a bar.

These are so delicious. I love the flavor -- sweet yet savory, with a good chew (but not so jerky-like that it wears out your jaw!) I'd choose these over a grain/soy-based bar ANY day of the week. I do wish they cost a little less so I could eat them more often, but I understand that Tanka is more of a small, artisan company, not a mass-production outfit. Highly recommend these to anybody looking for a natural, low-carb, gluten-free, Paleo-friendly snack.

Smells amazing and isn't drying to my hands

Purchased at iHerb

I have tried a few of the Deep Steep hand soaps and I didn't expect to like this one the best, but I really love it. It's not too strong but just smells fresh and happy and clean. I also like the foaming quality and the fact that it doesn't dry my hands out. Thanks for making it refillable, too -- I hate to throw away lots of plastic and this helps a little (I would actually prefer an even larger refill bottle.)

We can all read about the benefits of this product but really, who wants to drink something regularly if it tastes terrible? Well, I have to say that this is the best-tasting protein powder I've ever tried. I feel great when I take it and it smells and tastes just like a fresh milk product. Actually, as another rater said, you CAN smell the difference the moment you open the can. It's truly remarkable -- I've tried almost everything on the market after working in a big health food store for 4 years, and nothing else really tastes that great unless it's chock full of sugar and other junk. I'm still amazed that this is made with stevia, too. I really can't detect it, and neither can my girlfriend (who normally hates anything with stevia.) I like to formulate different smoothie concoctions with this powder, but my simplest recipe is: blend a scoop with some ice, cold water, half a frozen banana, maybe throw in some almonds, and voila -- I have a delicious milkshake. So good!

wonderful for normal to dry skin

This is wonderful stuff. I'm a fair-skinned woman in my late 20s with combination skin, and during the summer I use the Oil-Free Grapefruit Cream but felt it wasn't hydrating enough for the winter, so I tried the Pumpkin Renew Cream. It is amazing! It's moisturizing and yet it doesn't sit on top of the skin--it absorbs completely and only leaves behind smooth, supple skin. I can't say enough about MyChelle. It's one of the few skincare lines I trust to be functional, effective, and non-irritating. I've never been unhappy with any of my MyChelle purchases.

This crystal is a brilliant invention. It absorbs odor just as well as (or better than!) baking soda, lasts for much much longer than baking soda (just refresh the stone occasionally by rinsing with water), and takes up less space in the fridge to boot. Can't complain about that! Considering that it replaces up to 6 boxes of baking soda, this is more economical too and reduces packaging waste.

This filter has saved my skin & my sanity... but didn't last 15 months.

The chlorine smell emanating from my showerhead was really stressing me out. Not just emotionally (worrying about chlorine in the water... yuck!) but it was stressing out my skin and hair too. Well, I discovered this shower filter, and I am SO glad I made the investment. No longer do we feel like we're showering in a swimming pool, and my skin and hair are much tamer and less dried out. I just wish that this filter would work as long as the company claims. My first unit seemed to die within a few months, so I contacted the people at Rainshow'r. I sent them a nice email asking what I could do to make my filter last longer, and within a day, I actually got a *phone call* from the owner/inventor of these products! He was very nice and explained how they worked, etc. He also said that my filter SHOULD still be functional, and then he sent me a new one for free! That's some great customer service. Unfortunately, the replacement cartridge lasted a little longer than the first, but not even close to the rating the company specifies (15 - 18 mos). This may be because of our horribly chlorinated, mineral-heavy water here in Los Angeles -- it might be too much for the filter to handle. For this reason, I'm giving the filter 4 stars. I still love the product but I wish it would last longer than the 3-6 months that it worked. All considered, I still feel this filter is a good value and probably the best filter for the money. Rainshow'r stands behind their products, too, which is kind of rare these days. I'm going to try the refillable filter they make and see if it works any better in my house.
