Easy Now Tea: One of Key Weapons in My Personal Arsenal

Posted on Sep 28, 2013

5 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

In 2007, I gave birth to my son. It was a completely natural, med-free birth but I had severe bleeding after my son was born and recovery from childbirth was really difficult for me. I also was hit with overwhelming Post-Partum Depression. During my pregnancy I had had horrible panic attacks for months and the PPD was just an extension of that. The PPD was relentless and lasted for nearly 18 months. The first six months I barely remember because it was so bad. I went untreated because I, nor my husband, were educated about PPD. Our whole family suffered. In late 2008, I discovered Easy Now tea. I was nosing around a Health Food Store in my mother's city and came upon this tea. I had always been a tea fan so I picked up a box for less than $5 USD. I've been a faithful consumer of Easy Now since that day and I always have a stash of it in my house. It has seen me through another pregnancy and the post-partum time and half-way through my Master's Degree meanwhile working full-time outside the home and being a wife and mother to two small children. When I'm stressed out, overwhelmed or anxious and cannot sleep, I brew a strong cup of easy now and it helps tremendously. The flavor is very mild and comforting and a bit of stevia included in it gives it a slight sweetness. I've also used this tea with my children to combat severe jetlag as we live a 16-hour flight away from my parents in the States and it has been such a useful tea to have for that!

Getting our Liquid Sunshine

Posted on Oct 30, 2013

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Unfortunately, with our work and study schedules it seems we just don't get enough sunshine in our lives. Coupled with the fact that we live in a city that is often rainy and overcast it's essential for us to supplement with vitamin D3 and K2 for ours and our childrens' health. I prefer Ortho Molecular Products, Liquid Vitamin D3 and K2 because it is essentially tasteless and can be administered according to weight which means we use it with all of our family members...from young to old. Even our preschooler will take it without a fuss. We will continue to use this product.

Delicious Extract for Making Buttermints!

Posted on Feb 27, 2014

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

We've been using this to make Buttermints. I got the recipe from the Blog "Empowered Sustenance". I'll post the recipe below. This is a great extract and we love using it. Will order it again! Buttermints for sugar cravings Ingredients 1 cup butter, organic pasture butter is the healthiest! (If using ghee, which is an oil, it will not emulsify with the honey. See the note on the recipe below) 10-12 drops therapeutic grade peppermint essential oil (I recommend this one) OR 1/8 - 1/4 tsp. peppermint extract (I use the oil) Taste and adjust amount as necessary. 3 Tbs. raw honey (You can increase to 4 Tbs. if desired) Small pinch of unrefined salt Optional: 2 Tbs. cocoa powder for a chocolate version (a reader's suggestion) Instructions Have the butter at room temperature. Stir together all ingredients then scoop it into a disposable pastry bag or zip-top bag. You can use a metal pastry tip like I did, I just stuck the metal tip into the end of a zip-top bag and then cut off a corner of the bag (see picture above). If you don't want to use a tip, just snip of the corner of the bag. Squeeze bite-sized buttons onto a baking sheet lined with unbleached parchment paper. Place in the fridge until firm, about 2 hours, then transfer to a storage container and store in the fridge. Notes For a chocolate version: A reader told me she made this recipe with the addition of 2 Tbs. cocoa powder, for a chocolate version, with success. That sounds like a great idea and I wanted to share it here! Inspired by this recipe from Shaye at The Elliot Homestead.

Even and Long-Lasting Eye Shadow

Posted on Sep 28, 2013

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

It was time for me to buy some new eye shadow. I've been working long hours and studying for my MA in my "spare time" between work and mothering two small children--I really needed something to brighten up my eyes on those weary mornings after late nights of study! I'm very impressed with this eye shadow. The coverage is smooth and it lasts all day and stays in place. It is gentle and doesn't cause allergic reactions like I've had with other powders. I am even confident in letting my 2-year-old play "dress up" with me with this makeup powder. Lovely colors--I will definitely be coming back to this brand in the future.

My Liver Says 'Thank You' to Solgar Dandelion Root Caps

Posted on Oct 31, 2013

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I do like the taste of dandelion tea but sometimes I'm too busy to brew it and forget. I've been diagnosed with some liver issues and since starting to take the dandelion root I've noticed an overall improvement in how I feel. I don't feel as sluggish and I don't retain water like I used to. It's very cleansing!

Halitosis' Worst Enemy=Jarrow Formulas, Mastic Gum 500

Posted on Oct 31, 2013

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Some of my family members have struggled with incurable halitosis for years. Despite brushing and diet changes and consulting with doctors, the bad breath persisted. That's why I sought out some sort of natural help and came across mastic gum. Since using mastic gum, my family members' halitosis is nearly nonexistent and we're all excited about that. I buy Jarrow because I trust the brand and it is good value-for-money.
