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. ;)

Rainbow Light makes a great multi

Posted on Jun 12, 2006

I'm a 20-something woman and I have been taking this multi for a couple of years now. I never thought I would take a 6-a-day multiple, but the tablets are fairly small and the benefits are huge! It helped me balance my hormones and it gives me more energy--it's just a great nutritional formula. Plus I don't have to worry about taking an extra calcium supplement (although I do take extra magnesium for my fibromyalgia.) This is a great price for this product too!

Works just as well as my Rx did!

Posted on Apr 04, 2012

I was prescribed some very expensive drugs for chronic asthma problems that have flared up since moving to an urban area and living with 4 cats in 650 sq ft. I couldn't afford to keep shelling out a hundred dollars a month or more for those drugs, plus I was experiencing side effects, but when I stopped taking them, I needed to use my rescue inhaler far too often. Fortunately, I remembered this product from when I worked at a health food store and I ordered a bottle to give it a try. I started taking two of these every evening and I noticed a drastic reduction in how often I would wake up in the morning and need to use my inhaler. When I started taking it morning and night, I didn't have to use my inhaler at ALL except during very rigorous physical exertion. If I forget it for a couple of days, I notice my asthma comes back again. This Ivy extract is obviously working! As a side note, these tablets are very small and easy to swallow, and they don't have a funny taste. (Now I'm seriously thinking about mailing a bottle of the liquid to a friend who has asthmatic children!)

It's definitely soothing.

I have chronic asthma worsened by my allergies and since I live with 4 cats that I'm allergic to, I live with daily asthma symptoms too. I can't afford and don't want to constantly take an expensive Singulair Rx and I try to minimize use of my emergency inhaler so I'm always searching for natural solutions. This is one of my favorites. I also like the Ivy tablets but I think the liquid is a bit more soothing and quick-acting. I just find that I rest better at night and have less wheezing when I remember to take swigs of this every day. I do wish they would package this in a larger bottle! I go through a single bottle within a week or so.

so versatile, so fresh!

I have tried several different brands of coconut oil but I've found this is the most delicious and fresh-tasting I've had, probably because Nutiva is local to iHerb. I highly recommend it to all my friends for eating, cooking, adding to drinks, or for using on skin. I recently mixed it into crushed oatmeal for a wonderful, moisturizing scrub, and eliminated dry patches on my face. Another favorite use? I coat a hot waffle iron with this coconut oil using a silicone basting brush to keep sweet waffle recipes from sticking. It works great, never leaves residue, and never burns!

great black cherry concentrate for mineral water "sodas"

Posted on Oct 18, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

I love to add this concentrate to mineral water. I drop a tablespoon into a tall glass of sparkling mineral water, add a few drops of NuNaturals vanilla stevia, and a wedge of lime -- so refreshing and delicious! It also seems to help with my inflammation if I drink it regularly. I have chronic pain issues and don't drink soda anymore, so I love having a sweet soda-like beverage that has nutritional benefits.

Perfect everyday conditioner

Posted on May 19, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

For my "combination" hair, this is the perfect conditioner. Leaves my hair feeling hydrated and soft yet doesn't leave a funky residue behind. I usually use it without a shampoo ("no poo") and just "co-wash"; I have wavy hair and avoiding shampoo keeps my hair happiest.

great product!

Posted on Dec 30, 2010

Purchased at iHerb

During the winter I've long had problems regulating my mood, but I've found that taking a high dose of Vitamin D helps so much. I've been very happy with this brand--the softgel is tiny, has no aftertaste, and smells fresh, with no odd fishy odor like I've experienced with other Vitamin D supplements. Overall, an excellent value and a quality product. I've also noticed a stronger immune system -- everyone around me gets sick but I never do (knock on wood!) Over the last year I've started my girlfriend on this supplement too, because she has a history of breast cancer and her vitamin D levels were low. She began taking one every night without fail. To our excitement, she had her checkup a month or two ago and her oncologist congratulated her on getting her D levels up to normal!

neat device!

Posted on Dec 30, 2010

Purchased at iHerb

This product really works to blend protein shakes with no residual powder clumps, and it is a great size too--it fits well in my female hands. It closes nice and tight too, with no leaks. Also works great on salad dressings, I might add! Much better than the typical shaker you get in the grocery store. I'm tempted to get the smaller size just for that purpose.

Really good GF brownie mix! Plus protein!

Posted on Jul 26, 2009

Purchased at iHerb

I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with this product. I was looking for something with clean, organic ingredients that I could make when I was having a chocolate/sugar craving, BUT I'm trying to avoid wheat, and I tend to be hypoglycemic so I like to make sure my protein/fat/carb/fiber intake is kept in balance. This treat fits the bill. I made it as the package specified, using Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil as the oil. I bought four so I think next time I make these I will try to sneak in some more fiber (maybe some more flax, or some acacia powder) and I might sprinkle some chocolate chips on top too. Oh, and I liked another reviewer's idea of making them in mini-muffin tins. They are a little crumbly and I liked the edge-pieces best, so that would make it just about perfect. Thanks, iherb, for selling a great product at a competitive price!

Great little freebie!

Posted on Sep 27, 2010

Purchased at iHerb

This is my favorite iherb freebie -- the pen is lightweight, writes smoothly with blue ink, looks decent (the logo isn't cheesy) and of course it is useful, which is the most important thing. I work from home so I always appreciate an extra pen. It's light and small enough to tuck into my zippered clutch/wallet - perfect for endorsing checks on the go, etc. I see they are "not available" right now--I hope that's temporary because I love these little pens. Bring them back, iherb!

Favorite skin product ever. Really.

Posted on Apr 04, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I've used hundreds of natural beauty products, after working at a natural food store for 4 years, but I keep going back to this serum! I've used it for about 5 years. Why? First off, it really makes a difference in the texture of my skin. My early thirties combination skin feels noticeably smoother and my pores are more refined when I use this serum every day. It feels amazingly silky and light on the skin as well, AND it has never made me itch or break out like many beauty products. Oh, and it smells wonderful too -- I love the touch of essential oils they use. My makeup seems to go on smoother when I use this serum underneath. During the warmer seasons, my skin is more normal/oily, so I layer this product with a moisturizing foundation and I'm good to go. When my skin is normal/dry and I need extra hydration, I layer another moisturizer on top of this serum (just before my foundation.) I also like that it comes in a thick frosted glass bottle -- it seems to keep the product fresh for a long time, and looks very elegant & high-end sitting on my bathroom counter (i.e., more like a department store product than a drugstore product.) I'll add that the glass is also fairly durable; I've dropped the bottle many times over the last five years, but it's only broke once, after dropping it on a slate floor. If you're considering this product, I urge you to go for it -- it's worth every penny, in my educated opinion. I can't recommend it more highly.
