Excellent pure raw manuka honey from New Zealand.

Posted by Caerulea on May 13, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Not all honey is created equal. Manuka honey is the queen of it all. What gives it this title is its unique phytochemical composition. All honey has some antibiotic and healing properties because it contains hydrogen peroxide. But in addition to it, manuka honey is the only type of honey that has a high concentration of methylglyoxal, a powerful antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal, analgesic, antispasmodic, tonic, cicatrizant, soothing, emollient, and healing agent, which comes the conversion of dihydroxyacetone, a compond found in high concentration in the nectar of manuka flowers, and gives manuka honey its exceptional properties. Its antibacterial power is determined by the concentration of methylglyoxal: the higher the concentration, the stronger the antibiotic effect and potency of manuka honey. The potency of manuka honey is called UMF, which stands for Unique Manuka Factor. The UMF rating corresponds to the concentration of methylglyoxal. Not all manuka honey contains significant levels of methylglyoxal. To be considered potent enough to be therapeutic, it needs a minimum rating of 10 UMF. To be labelled manuka honey, at least 70% of its pollen content should come from the manuka tree. Another unique thing about manuka honey is that it's very thixotropic and has the highest viscosity among different types of honey, which means that it's gel-like in liquid form, and becomes less solid when stirred or shaken. It's also slow to granulate and forms coarse crystals, that's why genuine manuka honey has a smooth and creamy texture. This Wedderspoon Organic Raw Manuka Honey is an excellent product: it's 100% pure, raw, unpasteurized, delicious, comes from New Zealand (which means that it's genuine, because manuka trees grow only in New Zealand and southeastern Australia), has a smooth and creamy texture (which proves once again that it's genuine) and a rating of 16 UMF, which means that it's therapeutic grade, not to mention that the packaging is BPA free. This manuka honey is truly a superfood loaded with health benefits. In addition to methylglyoxal, it's a great source of manganese, iron, copper, pota ssium, zinc, selenium, calcium, magnesium, riboflavin, vitamin B6, vitamin C, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid and effective in treating infections, colds, flu, fever, respiratory tract conditions, nasal congestion, sore throat, bronchitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, sinusitis, asthma, gastritis, acid reflux, Helicobacter pylori, indigestion, stomach ulcers, IBS, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, hay fever, high cholesterol, cardiovascular conditions, heart disease, diabetes, kidney and liver disease, arthritis, rheumatism, osteoporosis, aching muscles, earache, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines and headaches, stress, anxiety, insomnia, cataracts, diabetic foot ulcers, sunburn, acne, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, shingles, hives, scabies, sciatica, ringworm, chicken pox, dandruff, seborrhea, scalp infections, cavities, caries, tooth decay, plaque and tartar build up, sore gums, gingivitis, parodontitis, gum infections, canker sores, mouth ulcers, as well as many other conditions. When used internally, manuka honey boosts and strengthens the immune systems, removes toxins out of the body, aids digestion, prevents heartburn and acid reflux, relieves nausea and bloating, heals gastric ulcers, soothes the stomach lining, reduces colon inflammation, facilitates healing, improves liver and kidney function, balances the intestinal flora, helps stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, normalizes blood pressure, lowers triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, stimulates blood flow and improves circulation, protects against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, neutralizes free radicals, improves brain function, helps maintain healthy bones, teeth, joints, skin, nails, and hair, aids sleep, relieves the symptoms of stress and depression, and reduces the risk of cancer. It does wonders when applied topically, as well: it fights infection, heals wounds, sores, dry, sore, and chapped lips, cuts, abrasions, peeling skin, bruises, insect bites, stings, abscesses, boils, blisters, burns, carbuncles. A manuka honey facial mask calms itching, reduces redness and inflammation, improves the complexion, evens out the skin tone, detoxifies the skin, exfoliates dead skin cells, draws out excess dirt, oil, and product buildup, removes impurities and debris from under the skin without stripping the skin's protective layer, unclogs and tightens pores decreasing their size, regulates sebum production, improves cellular circulation, stimulates cell renewal and regeneration, tones, firms, nourishes, invigorates, revitalizes, and rejuvenates the skin helping restore its elasticity and protecting it at the cellular level, supports and strengthens the skin's defensive mechanisms, and prevents premature aging. A manuka honey hair mask soothes and heals the scalp, calms itching, removes dandruff and flakiness, strengthens the root bulbs and follicle connection, slows down hair loss, pro motes keratin production and hair growth. A manuka honey compress stimulates blood circulation, relieves pain, and aids in coagulation of wounds for faster healing. A manuka honey mouth wash soothes and heals sore gums, prevents inflammation and tartar buildup. I use this amazing manuka honey both internally and externally and I really love it: it relieves the symptoms of my acid reflux and gastritis, helps normalize my cholesterol levels and blood pressure, boosts my immune system and I don't get sick easily, helps me sleep better and feel rested and refreshed when I wake up, clears up my acne, improves my complexion and skin tone, smoothes out some fine lines and reduces my pigmentation spots. So glad I discovered this amazing product. Totally recommend it.

One of the most effective and powerful detoxifying and healing clays.

Posted by Caerulea on May 12, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Bentonite clay is truly a unique product. Bentonite, also known as montmorillonite, is one of the most effective and powerful detoxifying and healing clays known to man. What makes it unique is its high content of trace minerals and ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals. When it's mixed with water, it rapidly swells like a porous sponge and produces a strong negative electrical charge capable of bonding to the positive charge of many toxins. So, when it comes in contact with a toxin, chemical, or heavy metal, this clay will draw it into the sponge using electrical attraction, so that it becomes bound, and thus remove it completely. Another unique thing about bentonite clay is that it transports oxygen to cells and removes excess hydrogen, allowing the cells to replace it with oxygen instead. It's composed of aged volcanic ash and comes in two varieties – sodium montmorillonite and calcium montmorillonite. This product is sodium bentonite, which is great, because sodium bentonite has a higher negative charge and, as a result, is extremely effective in drawing out toxins and impurities from under the skin. This bentonite clay is also pure, natural, free of any additives or preservatives, and great for all skin types, especially oily, combination, and acne-prone skin. It detoxifies the skin, exfoliates dead skin cells, draws out excess dirt and oil, removes impurities and debris from under the skin without stripping the skin's protective layer, unclogs and tightens pores decreasing their size, regulates sebum production, tones, firms, invigorates, and revitalizes the skin helping restore its elasticity, reduces redness and inflammation, improves the complexion, evens out the skin tone, supports and strengthens the skin's defensive mechanisms, improves cellular circulation, stimulates cell renewal and collagen production, fights and prevents acne, spots, blemishes, and infections, facilitates the healing of small wounds, sores, burns, cuts, insect bites, stings, abscesses, boils, blisters, and even reduces stretch marks and scars and helps prevent premature aging. This bentonite clay is also a powerful antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, and antifungal agent keeping infection and inflammation at bay. It can be used as a detoxifying scalp mask, as well. It regulates sebum production, removes excess oil, dirt, product buildup without stripping the scalp's protective layer, fights infections, protects the scalp at the cellular level, strengthens the root bulbs and follicle connection, stimulates keratin production and hair growth. In addition to being used as a face or scalp mask, skin poultice, detox bath, mud pack, it can also be used internally to detoxify and remineralize the body, due to its high content of trace minerals, such as silica, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, and pota ssium. Bentonite clay flushes toxins out of the body, aids digestion, prevents heartburn and acid reflux, relieves nausea and bloating, soothes the stomach lining, reduces colon inflammation, improves liver and kidney function, balances the intestinal flora, helps maintain healthy bones and joints and remineralize teeth, soothes and heals sore gums and canker sores. I've been mixing this product with water and using it on my face, body, and scalp, and I'm impressed by the results: my complexion has improved, my acne has cleared up, my skin tone has evened out, my acne has noticeably cleared up, almost all the redness and inflammation is gone, some of my pigmentation spots and stretch marks have faded, my scalp is much healthier and no longer dry, flaky, and itchy. Amazing product. Would definitely recommend it.

Posted by Caerulea on May 10, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Great alternative to toxic and dangerous astringents and toners, but contains citric acid and may not be suitable for very sensitive and delicate skin.

Posted by Caerulea on May 14, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Unlike other witch hazel toners and astringents, this one is free of alcohol, sulfates, parabens, petroleum, phthalates, PEGs, silicon, propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, toxic and dangerous chemicals, additives, preservatives, dyes, synthetic and artificial fragrances, never tested on animals, and undistilled, which helps it maintain all the beneficial phenols, tannins and catechins naturally occurring in the leaves and bark of the witch hazel shrub. Another great thing about this product is that the witch hazel extract is certified organic and derived from the bark, not the leaves of the witch hazel shrub, which makes this toner more potent, because witch hazel bark extract is 31 times richer in hamamelitannin than the leaf extract and 87 times richer than the stem extract. Witch hazel is one of the best natural astringents known to man and a powerful antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal, analgesic, antispasmodic, cicatrizant, emollient, toning, soothing, and healing agent. Rich in phenols and tannins of the proanthocyanin type, gallic acid, catechins, flavonols, especially kaempferol and quercetin, carvacrol, eugenol, hexenol, choline and saponins, witch hazel does wonders for all skin types. It gently cleanses and detoxifies the skin, protects it from airborne impurities, exfoliates dead skin cells, draws out excess dirt and oil, removes impurities and debris from under the skin without stripping the skin's protective layer, unclogs and tightens pores decreasing their size, regulates sebum production, soothes, tones, firms, smoothes, invigorates, revitalizes, heals, beautifies and rejuvenates the skin, helping restore its elasticity, calms itching, reduces redness and inflammation, improves the complexion, evens out the skin tone, supports and strengthens the skin's defensive mechanisms, improves cellular circulation, stimulates cell renewal, regeneration and collagen production, fights and prevents acne, spots, blemishes, and infections, facilitates the healing of small wounds, sores, burns, bruises, cuts, insect bites, stings, abscesses, boils, blisters, and even reduces stretch marks and scars and helps prevent premature aging. Witch hazel is also great for the scalp and hair: it soothes and heals dry, flaky and itchy scalp, regulates sebum production, removes excess oil, dirt and product buildup without stripping the scalp's protective layer, prevents and treats dandruff and flakiness, fights infections, protects the scalp at the cellular level, strengthens the root bulbs and follicle connection, stimulates keratin production and hair growth. This product contains other beneficial ingredients, too: certified organic aloe vera leaf juice is an amazing soothing and healing agent capable of calming itching, reducing redness and inflammation, vegetable glycerin deeply moisturizes, nourishes and softens the skin locking in moisture and preventing dryness and dehydration, vitamin E (as suming it's non-GMO) is a natural preservative and powerful antioxidant neutralizing free radicals and preventing premature aging. This toner contains citric acid, as well. Citric acid is naturally found in citrus fruits and generally a safe pH adjusting, chelating and buffering agent stimulating skin peeling and cell renewal, but it may be a little too harsh and dehydrating for very dry, delicate and sensitive skin and cause irritation and allergic reactions. So, this alcohol free unscented witch hazel toner with aloe vera is not hypoallergenic and may not be suitable for everyone. But other than that, it's a great product and alternative to mainstream toners and astringents filled with toxic chemicals and skin irritants. It really works for me: it improves my complexion, evens out my skin tone, reduces redness and inflammation. So, if you don't have incredibly sensitive and allergy-prone skin, this product is worth trying.

Amazing pure organic argan oil without any additives or preservatives.

Posted by Caerulea on May 10, 2014 | Verified Purchase

This soft, gentle, non-comedogenic oil suitable for all skin and hair types, including sensitive, acne-prone and mature, with a pleasant slightly nutty aroma is one of Morocco's best kept beauty secrets and known as the "oil of life", and for good reason - its composition and properties are unique and superior to those of other plant oils. Argan oil contains 80% unsaturated fatty acids (oleic, linoleic, linolenic), 18% saturated oils (palmitic and stearic), which makes it more resistant to oxidation than olive oil, and is very high in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant helping neutralize free radicals, restore the skin's hydrolipid balance and prevent premature aging, which is particularly important for people living in harsh and polluted environments. And that's not the only unique thing about argan oil - it also contains carotenes, squalene and triterpenoid saponins known for their emollient, soothing, healing, anti-inflammatory, disinfectant and sun-protective properties, plant sterols reducing irritation and inflammation, calming itching, deeply moisturizing and nourishing dry, damaged and sensitive skin, making it softer, smoother and more supple, improving skin tone, elasticity and complexion, preventing dryness and dehydration, and flavonoids encouraging cell renewal and regeneration, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, scarring and stretch marks, restoring luster to dull, dry and lifeless hair. Due to its unique phytosterol composition it's especially effective in treating such conditions as acne, blemishes, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, chickenpox, dermatitis, as well as healing small wounds, cuts, burns and alleviating pain caused by sunburn and peeling skin. In addition to its cosmetic uses, argan oil is a culinary oil with a lot of health benefits as well: it lowers cholesterol levels by blocking cholesterol absorption from the intestines, facilitates digestion by increasing the concentration of pepsin in the gastric juice, reduces inflammation by soothing the stomach lining, stimulates blood circulation, protects against heart disease, boosts the immune system. I've been using this organic argan oil only for a few weeks, by the results speak for themselves: my complexion has improved, my skin is softer and smoother and has a healthy glow, my acne has cleared up, redness and inflammation is gone, some fine lines have faded, my scalp is no longer dry, itchy and flaky, my hair is healthier. Will definitely order it again.

Contains calcium lactate ang glycerin. Definitely not safe if swallowed.

Posted by Caerulea on May 12, 2014 | Verified Purchase

Even though this children's toothpaste is free of sulfates, parabens, fluoride, saccharin, artificial or synthetic preservatives, flavors, colorants, or harsh abrasives, and contains some safe ingredients, such as xylitol, cellulose gum, panthenol, oat bran, and beta-glucan, it contains calcium lactate and glycerin, as well. Glycerin is a relatively safe ingredient, but may leave a thin coat on the teeth and prevent remineralization of tooth enamel. Calcium lactate, which is a buffering agent, is much more dangerous. It's a human allergen and irritant known for causing nausea, vomiting, dizziness, stomach upset and cramps, and it's definitely not safe if swallowed by kids. Not something you would expect from a children's toothpaste. And the "natural" origin of its strawberry and banana flavor is questionable. You can find much better and safer children's toothpastes out there.

Pretty good, but contains pota ssium sorbate and glycerin.

Posted by Caerulea on May 11, 2014 | Verified Purchase

This ayurvedic herbal foam-free toothpaste is suitable for people suffering from acid reflux, heartburn, gastritis, celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, because it doesn't contain mint or gluten which may aggravate these conditions. Unlike many other toothpastes, this one is free of fluoride, parabens, SLS, propylene glycol, PEGs, saccharin and other synthetic additives, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, colors or harsh abrasives, but it does contain pota ssium sorbate as a preservative and glycerin as a solvent and viscosity decreasing agent. Even though pota ssium sorbate is not a dangerous carcinogen or endocrine disruptor, it's a suspected human toxicant, irritant, and allergen. Glycerin is generally a safe ingredients, but it may leave a thin coat on the teeth and thus prevent remineralization of tooth enamel. All the other ingredients are great, though: fine chalk and silica gently clean the teeth without damaging the enamel, while a powerful blend of peelu, neem, indian licorice root, pomegranate rind, common jujube, rose apple, clove, persian walnut, barleria prinoitis bark, Indian almond, bedda nut, Asian holly oak, pri ckly ash, zanthoxylum alatum, sappan wood, catechu, bengal madder, acacia arabica bark, sarsaparilla, cinnamon, medlar bark, mayweed and bishop's weed flower extracts, fennel and cardamom oils, and thymol prevent and reduce plaque and tartar build-up by killing harmful tooth decay-causing bacteria and stimulating the growth of tooth-protective, non-acidic bacteria, remove stains, strengthen the enamel, help prevent caries, relieve the symptoms of gingivitis and parodontosis, heal sore gums, reduce redness and inflammation, fight halitosis and prom ote fresh breath, carrageenan (natural, not its degraded and chemically processed variety, poligeenan) is a thickener made from seaweed, cellulose gum is a natural binder and viscosity increasing agent. Overall, it's a pretty good toothpaste, and unlike mint toothpastes, it doesn't provoke heartburn and acid reflux or irritate the stomach lining, but it would be much better and safer without pota ssium sorbate and glycerin.
