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. ;)

I had no idea prunes could be delicious...

...but they are actually pretty great! The texture is so perfect (you don't need to gnaw on these) and they taste so fresh. They are simple but so good. I hoard them like little treats.

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.

I really wanted to like MoreFiber, but...

...unfortunately, I had a bad experience with this product. I'm not sure how this happened, but my container was rancid upon opening despite being stored in a dark, cool, dry place. I bought it in August 2010 but doesn't expire until 12/11, so I know iHerb didn't sell me outdated stock, but it was rancid regardless. I smelled a very strong rancid oil/grain smell the moment I opened the seal. I even tried baking with it (thinking it might've been my imagination,) but that was a bad idea. It ruined my whole pan of lemon bars with the rancid taste. I'm not sure if I got a bad batch or what. I think I'm going to write NuNaturals and give them the lot number and ask if they've had any other problems with this product. I'm not sure if I'm going to give this one a second try.

I was diagnosed with bipolar II about 10 years ago but found that the drugs were too strong for my particular issues and had too many side effects (in fact, my doctor and I discovered that antidepressants were causing this so-called bipolar disorder). As a result, I made some lifestyle changes and turned to nutritional supplements to help with the mood issues. Calm & Calmer was probably the 5th "stress relief" supplement I tried, and the only one that A) always made me feel better and B) didn't make me sleepy. As a result, I've been taking it for six or seven years. I think it also helps me control my stress eating. I love this stuff, and it's helped a lot of other people too -- I recommend it all the time to friends and family who need something to control their stress and anxiety levels.

I love the how this scrub works and how it smells! It is truly a candy-like peppermint scent... so yummy. It has a great texture -- creamy and not too scratchy, but scrubby enough to polish my rough wintry legs & feet (oh, and I use it on my elbows too!) It's also moisturizing but not terribly oily on my shower floor. PS: It's great to use before shaving... it banishes scaly legs and it helps me get a closer shave, too. Now I can't wait to try the foot cream... AND I hope iherb decides to carry the Candy Mint Foot Stick at some point too... those three products would make a wonderful gift basket for birthdays or the holidays. :)

So far this has been a great brush, in the month I've owned it. I love the feel of the wood handle and the brush has a nice texture -- scrubs well without bruising or cutting the skin of delicate fruit.

Due to allergies, I avoid most scented products. Dryer sheets and fabric softeners in general are especially irritating to me. When I lived in a more humid climate this wasn't such a big deal (adding vinegar to my wash seemed to soften well enough) but after moving to SoCal I noticed more and more static, and finally decided to give these dryer cloths a try. I can't compare them to commercial products because I haven't used those in so long, but they certainly keep my clothing from sticking together, and I love the scent -- reminds me a little bit of Burt's Bees milk & honey lotion. I use one sheet for 2-3 loads and it works really well for me, and the fragrance hasn't seemed to irritate my skin or lungs yet. Thumbs up!

really elegant solution for solo tea-drinkers.

For those times when I don't want to make a full pot of tea, I love this little infuser. It allows my loose leaf teas to infuse freely, plus I can drink straight from the cup once I remove the insert with the used tea leaves. I actually prefer to drink from glass mugs anyway (I love being able to see the tea!) so this is a definitely perk. I just hope my clumsiness doesn't kick in so I can keep this infuser for a long, long time -- for now I'm handling it very carefully, handwashing only, and I only stir with wooden implements (I use a chopstick) to avoid clinking on the glass.

One of my fave snacks

Purchased at iHerb

Great flavor and not too tough to chew (I have TMJD so I appreciate this.) A really tasty snack with a good nutritional profile! Wish it was a little less expensive but it's not too bad considering the price of most jerky these days. I wouldn't mind if it they made it a little less salty and sweet but I appreciate having a high-protein, shelf-stable snack that's not a sweet protein bar (plus I don't have to share these with my partner, because she's a vegetarian -- more for me!)

My favorite!

I love this for so many reasons. First, I love that it smells nice and freshens up my laundry, but without a noxious overwhelming scent (chemical scents tend to aggravate my asthma so this is very important.) Second, I love the dry formula. Liquids get so goopy and messy and I always spill them all over the place -- I love having my tablespoon and my little bag of powder. So tidy, so efficient! Finally, it really cleans my clothes without being too harsh. Ever since I moved to LA, where the water is exceedingly hard, my old detergent wasn't cutting it. I felt like my clothes just didn't have that freshness that I was looking for. Well, I think this stuff did the trick! I don't use it for diapers (I am childless) but can attest that it works fabulously on my regular laundry.

A simple cough drop that soothes

These taste very similar to other mentholated cough drops but the honey center sets them apart. The honey really soothes the throat and suppresses coughing for a short while.

Tasty and nutritious stuff. I like to bake it until puffed and serve with a little bit of honey inside the hollow, like sopaipillas. I can't keep it on hand all the time because they're just too expensive, but I love them!
